Get ready for a thrilling ride through the Icelandic countryside on a buggy. Hop aboard this small vehicle and race up hills and across small rivers on this fun-filled tour. Those wanting to add a short, adrenaline-pumping ride to their Icelandic holiday, should not let this opportunity pass them by.

You'll meet your guide at the buggy base camp where you'll get all necessary equipment, such as waterproof coveralls, balaclavas, rubber boots, gloves and a helmet. You'll receive quick safety instruction from your guide, hop aboard the buggy, strap into the 4-point safety harness, and then whizz off!

The city mountain, Mt. Esja, is your primary play area with all her gravel tracks and riverbeds. On good, clear days you get a fantastic view of Reykjavík and the surrounding areas, but even if the weather is bad, you will still have a blast! You'll go off the beaten track, staying off the paved roads and traffic, where you'll head straight out to the mud and grime, so this is the real deal.

Buggy rides are fun in all seasons. During the summer months you'll get to splash in the rivers and puddles, so expect to get both drenched and dirty - who doesn't love that? During winter, most of the streams and pools are frozen so that you can drive freely around the beautiful nature. You will blast through piles of snow which will test your driving skills, as you might get stuck in the process. However, that is just a part of the fun, and there is no need to worry - the guides have a rope to pull you out of sticky situations.

Race across the beautiful Icelandic nature on this exciting buggy ride tour just outside of Reykjavík city. Book now to secure your spot on this action-packed excursion. Check availability by choosing a date.
