Tour details

This gorgeous valley is named after the thunder god, Thor – Thorsmork. On this half-day Thorsmork Buggy adventure you will drive through one of the most beautiful places in Iceland, all the while testing your own 4×4 driving abilities and trying things you have never done before. You must ford several rivers on this tour, drive along rough dirt trails and maneuver the Buggy to the best of your abilities.

Thorsmork is surrounded by glaciers on three sides, with low birch woods and desert-like landscape creating an interesting contrast. Moss-grown cliffs and eroded glacial landscape will make you feel like you are in a fairytale land!

The area offers several easy nature hikes, so you don’t need to spend the whole time on the bumpy Buggy ride. Depending on the group, we will make some stops to stretch our legs, hike into gorges to hidden waterfalls, circle around Básar for an amazing view, or whatever else you feel like doing!

Our Buggies are special 2-seat all-terrain sports vehicles you strap into with a 4-point safety harness, surrounded by a roll cage. The automatic transmission makes life easier behind the wheel.

All you need is a spirit for adventure, a valid driving license for the driver – and to not be afraid of dirt…

This tour is operated by our trusted partner.

Does 4-5 hours on the Thorsmork buggy adventure sound like just a little bit too much?

This tour can change depending on weather conditions, so this tour needs to be flexible.
