Description

Hop on for the ride of a lifetime on this five-hour buggy adventure tour in Thorsmork valley, South Iceland. Adrenaline-seekers who want to explore some of the most spectacular sights in Iceland should book this adventure tour now.

The tour starts when you meet your guide and the rest of the group at Bru Base Camp. There will be a short briefing where your guide will take you through safety procedures and advises how to drive your buggy. 

Your guide will give you all the safety equipment you need for the buggy ride, including a waterproof snowsuit and safety helmet. Once you've got all the gear you need, it's time for the adventure to begin.

Thorsmork valley is named after the Norse god of thunder, Thor, and is a spectacular place to visit. It is situated between three magnificent glaciers and is home to lush green vegetation, thanks to its mild climate. 

On this half-day Thorsmork buggy adventure, you will drive through one of the most beautiful places in Iceland, test your 4×4 driving abilities, and try things you have never done before. 

During the adrenaline-fuelled tour, you'll cross several rivers, drive along rough dirt trails, and put your abilities to the test as you maneuver the buggy across the rugged terrain.

Thorsmork is surrounded by glaciers on three sides, with low birch woods and a desert-like landscape on the fourth side, creating an interesting contrast. The moss-covered cliffs and eroded glacial landscape will make you feel like you are on a movie set or in a fairytale. There is no better way to discover this southern highland treasure than in a 4×4 buggy.

The area offers several easy nature hikes, so you can spend some time walking in addition to your buggy ride. Depending on the group, your guide will make some stops to allow you to stretch your legs. You can hike into gorges, discover hidden waterfalls, or circle around Basar for amazing views.

The buggies are special two-seat all-terrain sports vehicles. You strap into them with a four-point safety harness and are surrounded by a roll cage so that you will feel safe and secure. The buggies have an automatic transmission, giving you less to worry about and making your drive easier. You must have a driver's license to drive a buggy.

Take advantage of this exciting buggy adventure tour taking in the spectacular sights of the Thorsmork valley. Check availability now by choosing a date.
