Immerse yourself in Icelandic nature with a fun and exciting buggy tour through the beautiful Flateyjardalur valley.  Those looking to have an adventure where they'll explore the stunning scenery of northern Iceland should grab this chance now.

The tour begins in North Iceland where you'll either be picked up in the morning from the town of Akureyri or meet your guides at a guesthouse nearby. You'll head east on an old road which winds over the Vaðlaheiði mountain. Get ready for a bumpy ride as you'll be driven on mostly gravel roads towards your destination, the Flateyjardalur valley.

Flateyjardalur is a deserted coast by Skjálfandi Bay and the perfect place to put your buggy to the test. Your guide, who will be with you all day, will give you all the necessary equipment: a full-bodysuit, water-resistant coveralls, gloves, helmet and rubber boots. 

Once you're dressed, the guide will give a demonstration on the buggies; the vehicles are automatic with fully adjustable steering wheels, so they are both comfortable and easy to drive. After a quick safety talk, you'll be strapped into the 4-point safety harness and then it's time to start your engine and head off!

The 4x4 path into the valley stretches some 33 kilometres, and it is here where the buggy cars really come to life.  You will see some rugged, windy roads, splash through puddles, creeks, and rivers on your way into this beautiful valley.

After thoroughly exploring the valley on your buggy, you will head back by the same route. The aim is to be back at the guesthouse in the late afternoon so you can have an optional dip in the hot tub which overlooks the beautiful Eyjafjörður fjord.

Don't miss this wonderful mixture of nature and adrenaline. Get the thrilling experience of driving in an open buggy car on this fantastic day tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
