We had a group of 5, ranging in age 53-22, and we all loved it. It was one of our favorite excursions. Our guide, Anthony, was amazing. He was helpful, fun and patient. I highly recommend this trip, it was 100% worth it.

This tour was AMAZING. We had the best time imaginable. My wife and I each drove an ATV and our kids rode behind us. They are 12 and 14 so they couldn’t drive but they also loved the ride.

Approx 2 hours and it was so fun being on the quad bikes! Got in the first lane because we could go super fast! Would do it again!
Highlight of our trip!

We had such a great time! The landscape was varied from beautiful lush green canyons, small water crossings to black sand beaches. Even though we had no ATV experience, we felt safe. Very professionally run.
Don’t miss this tour!

This tour was so worth it! It has been the highlight of our trip so far! Lots of sights to see, the terrain changed often which was surprising and so great! The guides were kind, patient and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
Tour was great, need to do better and clean
MatteusNjordur_T, Apr 2022
The tour itself was amazing. However don’t ever use the shoes they give you. The shoes haven’t been cleaned properly and smell disgusting after you take them off. My feet have never smelled before in my life but after this tour I had to throw away my socks and personal shoes which cost $300. They need to do a better job of cleaning the shoes. My wife also threw away her socks and shoes. They stench was so disgusting I tried to wash the shoes to save them but there’s nothing that could be done to remove the smell. The smell actually filled up our entire hotel room and finally I threw them in the trash.
Must give it a go

Views were breath taking guide was lovely. Got to see all we was promised the gear was clean. Lots of time to take pictures. Only thing is was a long drive to just do once with with plan others things next time that way.
Good time
Ashley_P, Jul 2021
First time driving a quad bike for me. A little scary, but it was fun. 11 year old son rode with dad. Everyone stayed in one line. We kept a good speed. Went through lots of different terrains. Wish we could have stopped for more pics, especially over the water sections. Good fun.

Un tour en quad sportif, dynamique, très complet, une belle vue du sable noir de la plage de Vik/ de l’épave du DC-3/ des cascades. Mention spéciale pour notre guide français Florian qui a été hyper professionnel. Un tour inoubliable
