  • What an awesome time! Ossi, the owner, was great in accomodating my last minute show-up and taking me and my family of 7 (me, my wife, and my 16yo, 13yo, 12yo, 8yo, and 6yo kids) on 3 ATVs + his...  more »
  • Today we had a fantastic ATV tour. We were looked after so well from start to finish. Everything was explained so well and we felt safe at all times while having the opportunity to have some great.....  more »
  • Where do I begin! This tour was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Black Beach tours are an incredible tour operator on the Reykjanes peninsula, located in a coastal town on the south called Þorlákshöfn. Dealing with Ossi and staff throughout the booking process was a breeze, with Ossi going the extra mile in answering many different questions I had about our trip to Iceland. He even made a few trips to local stores to see if they sold the fuel I needed for my camping stove before we arrived (and managed to locate it!). Our tour was to begin the morning after our arrival to Iceland, however Ossi gave us a call in the afternoon of our first day, advising us that because the weather was so good right now, and looked bad the following morning, he would recommend that we come and do the tour right away. We took his advice and it was the best decision we could have made - we had such clear beautiful blue skies and it made the views on the tour absolutely magical....and ensured we had the black sand beach to ourselves with the sun setting. The tour itself was so much fun - those ATV's are awesome and the route Ossi takes you on.....well, you will not believe it unless you do it! Do not hesitate in booking a tour with these guys - worth every penny and more! We also stayed one night in their own Guesthouse - a beautiful place to stay and again, highly recommended (I'll review the guesthouse separately). Ossi - you are a true Gentleman and I thank you again for such a fine service and experience! We WILL be back.
  • Black Beach Tours went above and beyond our expectations! It was by far the best experience we spent money on during our vacation in Iceland. They have an incredible setup for preparing you for the trip. We were equipped with high quality gear and offered refreshments both before and after our tour. Our guide was absolutely amazing, personable, and safety-conscious. We did a RIB ride and it was both beautiful and an adrenaline kick. Our guide took pictures and sent them to us afterwards, which wasn't even advertised as a thing. (So awesome!) They bent over backwards to accommodate our tight timeline for booking a tour. Black Beach Tours is family-owned. Even some of the pictures in the waiting room were of the owner's former experience as a captain of a fishing boat and his family. Bottom line: We compared trips with other tours and found nothing close to what we got with Black Beach Tours. Black Beach Tours is an incredible value for the price. Check it out.
