Mount-up and don't miss this fantastic combination tour and opportunity to spend the afternoon doing something different. Perfect for travellers with a sense of adventure, you will saddle up and get familiar with the majestic Icelandic horse, explore the remarkable beauty of Iceland on a buggy, relax in a hot tub and square the evening away with a delicious meal.

You will be picked up from the capital in the North, Akureyri, to start your tour. First off, you will be assigned to a trusty steed that fits your profile, get ready to saddle up and begin your comfortable, one-hour trail ride through North Iceland's stunning landscapes. Not only will you befriend the small, shaggy Icelandic horse, famed for their smooth gait, but you will take in the breathtaking mountain vistas and vast fields of grass waving by the lakeside path.

After your idyllic horse ride, it's buggy time. You'll start off by meeting your guide who will give you all the necessary things you need. Once you are prepared and suited-up in overalls, the guide will provide you with a demonstration of how to operate your buggy as well as a safety talk. The buggies are automatic with fully adjustable steering wheels and are comfortable as well as easy to drive.

Get excited to strap into a two-seat 4x4 Buggy and enjoy the rugged landscape as you hurtle along the paths and roads in the North. You are required to have a valid driving license to operate the buggy and there will be two people per vehicle but don't worry if you're not in the driving seat, there will be a chance to switch over halfway through the hour.

Once you've got the adrenaline pumping, you are welcome to relax in a serene hot-tub as you soak in your surroundings some more. You will then be treated to a delicious three-course meal to finish the tour as you will have certainly worked up an appetite.

This tour really packs in a lot, and it is an excellent way to spend an afternoon. Pull on your riding boots and get ready for magical adventure in the North of Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.
