This Buggy tour is for those who crave bumpy, dusty, dirty driving thrills while getting up close and personal with nature. No extra charge for dust, mud, water splashes, or even snow!
Your buggy adventure begins with a pick up from your Reykjavik hotel* and the short drive to base camp on an asphalt road before taking the road off-road. Our expert guides will make sure you have all the gear and safety instructions you need before you start the tour.
From basecamp, we take you on a route along the lovely Lake Hafravatn, and a variety of terrains to have fun on. Then it’s onwards and upwards as you bike to the top of Hafrafell mountain – the high point of your journey. From there you should be able to see the Hengill mountain range, Iceland’s third most active volcanic system, together with Hellisheiði, the geothermal power plant for the capital area. A spectacular view over Faxaflói bay and the whole capital region, Bláfjöll mountain range and Esja, Reykjavik’s house mountain, is waiting for you.
