Iceland ATV Tours – 4 Hour Moonscape & Black Sands – Trip Difficulty: ⅕ Easy
On this astronomical Iceland ATV tours experience, we travel through the Reykjanes peninsula, part of the UNESCO and European Global Geo-park network, where you will encounter the Reykjanes tip and the Reykjanes Lighthouse.
Built between 1907 and 1908, this is one of Iceland’s oldest recorded lighthouses with its focal plane measuring 73 meters above sea level, and a group of two lights, flashing every thirty seconds.
On this Iceland ATV tours experience, we will pass sights of steaming volcanic lava stones, which have been known to be used for cooking purposes! We will also traverse through parts of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a divergent tectonic plate boundary located on the floor of the Atlantic ocean which fascinatingly separates the Eurasian and American plates. It is the movement of these plates which has caused some of Iceland’s most shattering earthquakes!
We then drive along the black, sandy beaches of Sandvik, where the coast is a “cloud nine” for many species of bird and puffin in their natural habitat. Sandvik beach is also a popular destination for surfing among locals, and was also the location for scenes in the war film motion picture, “Flags of our Father”, which starred Hollywood legend, Clint Eastwood.
On route this amazing moonscape experience, we will make a pit stop at the old Lighthouse, grab a hot chocolate to warm our fingers and hydrate the body, and munch on a few of Iceland’s homemade twisted donuts, known locally as Kleinur.
