Experience the thrill of driving or riding a buggy as you zip along the rugged terrain, feeling the wind in your hair and the adrenaline rush. Buggies are specially designed for off-road adventures, ensuring a smooth and exhilarating ride over even the most challenging terrain.

As you traverse the black sand terrain and navigate through winding canyons, you'll be surrounded by awe-inspiring natural beauty at every turn. From towering cliffs to glacial rivers, the South Iceland trail offers a new and unforgettable sight to behold.

One of the tour's highlights is getting up close to the mighty Myrdalsjokull glacier. As one of Iceland's largest glaciers, Myrdalsjokull offers a dramatic backdrop for your adventure, with its towering ice formations and shimmering blue and black hues.

Although you won't be able to drive or walk atop the ice cap, the guide will lead you close to the glacier's edge. Here, you can pause for a rest and take action or landscape images with Myrdalsjokull as your backdrop.

After exploring the best trails and most stunning views of the region, you'll drive back to the base camp to return the buggy vehicle and the safety equipment. Afterward, you're free to explore more of the South Coast on your own or continue with other destinations in Iceland.
