Experience the beauty of Iceland’s black-sand beaches up close with this exciting black beach buggy tour in Vik. This action-packed tour is ideal for anyone who wants to visit the beautiful South Iceland shore while enjoying the rush of driving an adventure buggy over rough terrain.

First, you’ll make your way to Vik, South Iceland, to register at the base. Here, you’ll meet your expert local guide, who will take you through all the details of driving a buggy and give you a thorough safety briefing.

Buggies are safe and easy to use, but you need a valid driver’s license if you want to be the driver. Even if you’ve never driven a buggy before, you should have no problem with it. You’ll be provided with overalls and a helmet to wear during the tour, so you’ll be safe during the ride.

Once you’re ready to go, your tour guide will lead the way to the private black beach, where you can enjoy the stunning scenery with no interruptions. Here, you’ll be able to enjoy an exhilarating hour of riding your buggy over the jet-black sands, picking up speed, and looking at beautiful views.

You can choose to ride as a single rider or as a pair, as each buggy has enough space for two people. If you ride solo, you’ll get to drive your buggy for the whole hour.

If you’re sharing with a friend, you can take turns or sit back and enjoy the thrill of being a passenger! 

This exciting tour is suitable for children as young as six years old (as a passenger only — children will not be allowed to operate the buggy themselves). 

The vast majority of beaches in Iceland have black sand. This sand, which you’ll get to see up close on this tour, is volcanic sediment — tiny particles of solidified lava and basalt that have been ground down over thousands of years. 

It’s very interesting to see, and this tour is a great way to get a closer look.

As you ride and enjoy the beautiful scenery that surrounds you, your guide will be available to tell you more about the area of Vik, including fascinating local folklore that has been passed down for generations. They’ll also be happy to take photos of you behind the wheel, meaning you’ll be sure to get a fantastic memento of your time in the buggy.

Feel the wind in your hair while you experience the thrill of a buggy ride on an Icelandic black-sand beach. Check availability now by choosing a date.
