The mountain trail leads us to the black sandy beach of Selatangar (Sealbay). In this area there are old fishing huts from sub 11th century where fisherman stationed for outrowing until 1886.

'We recently took a 2 hour 4x4 tour and it was fantastic! My husband and I switched who was driving about halfway through so we could each experience the thrill of driving and the ability to sit back and relax. The topography is absolutely stunning, at times I felt like I had been transported to another planet. We went along the coast, through lava fields, on top of cliffs and even to the top of a mountain. They gave us great weatherproof jumpsuits and boots as well as gloves and helmets so that we stayed warm and the guide was incredibly nice, and very willing to take photos for us! I would absolutely recommend taking time to explore on ATV's while visiting Iceland! ''
