The first part of this tour is the hour long buggy ride. To operate a buggy, you need to be a licensed driver, but passengers can be as young as six, with no other prerequisites.

You’ll be picked up from Reykjavík and escorted to the base camp, where knowledgeable and personable guides will dress you in protective gear, and show you how your vehicle works. With the briefing complete, you’ll hop in, and set off on your adventure.

Your journey will be defined by bumpy, twisting trails, dramatic ascents and thrilling descents. You will first see the beautiful lake of Hafravatn, before taking the route to the summit of the nearby mountain of Hafrafell.

Here, you’ll take a short break to admire the views over the capital city and its surrounding nature. If you are lucky enough to have clear weather, you’ll be able to see the stretching Reykjanes and Snæfellsnes Peninsulas silhouetted against the horizons.

After taking photos and drinking in the landscapes, you’ll hop back into your buggy and return to the base camp. You’ll have time to get your breath back following the exhilaration of your trip as you are driven to your next destination, Leiðarendi Cave.

Once again, you’ll get all your necessary equipment (notably a helmet and torch) and a quick briefing before your adventure begins. You’ll then be guided across a lava plateau on the Reykjanes Peninsula by the Blue Mountains to the entrance of the cave.

Leiðarendi was formed in two eruptions, one a millennium ago and another a millenium before that. This means there are a variety of textures, colours and formations in the walls, floor and ceiling to marvel over, as you clamber and crawl through the narrow passages.

As you travel, your guide will tell you all about how these caves were created, what they were used for since settlement, and a few tales regarding the folklore associated with them.

After approximately an hour’s exploration, you’ll emerge back into the light, and be escorted back to Reykjavík.

Don’t miss your chance to combine two thrilling adventures into a single day. Check availability by choosing a date.
