Get ready to experience a thrilling ride with this 1-hour buggy ride tour near Mt. Esja. Race through the rugged countryside landscapes of the mountain and feel the adrenaline surging through your veins on this fun-filled excursion.

The mountain Esja is located about 20-minute drive from the city center, making this tour perfect for those who want to add some excitement to their Reykjavík-based city day.

You'll start off by meeting your guide who will give you all the necessary equipment; water-resistant coveralls, balaclavas, rubber boots, gloves, and a helmet. Once you are all geared up, you will need to listen to a short safety briefing from your guide before strapping into the 4-point safety harness and starting your engine!

The slopes of Mountain Esja are your playground. There, you will drive under her hills, splashing through river beds and puddles. You will not be spending any time driving on boring, paved roads – it is straight out into the dust and mud, playing in conditions for which these machines are made.

During summer months, there is a lot of water, and you are definitely going to get all nice and muddy before the end of your tour – but this is just part of the fun! Who needs the Blue Lagoon, when you can get a fun-filled mud mask on a Buggy tour?

During winter months, most of the water and ground is frozen solid so that you can drive freely all over the place, but remember – always in a line behind your guide! Your winter-driving abilities will be put to the test, as you'll crash through piles of snow blocking your way. Don't worry if you get stuck; the guides will have ropes to pull you out of a sticky situation.

Don't hesitate! An adrenaline-inducing Buggy tour will have you feeling like a little kid again, and your cheeks will be sore from all the laughing and smiling. Check availability by choosing a date.

Great experience. We went on this tour with my 6 year old son. He and I loved it. The organizing team was very nice, the buggies were in very good condition. The ride was a real adventure with beautiful landscape.

Super fun! Definitely one of the must try activities in Iceland! We drove on different terrains: gravel roads, muddy puddles, rivers and streams, hills and mounds and so on! Thrilling but also felt safe in the overall and helmet provided. And not to mention the magnificent surrounding scenery. Highly recommended!

This tour was absolutely amazing! Me and my best friend went and we literally laughed the whole time. You splash through big puddles and rivers and boulder over hills and mounds! Not only was it super fun but the environment and the nature was breathtakingly beautiful! This is a definite must do for us adrenaline junkies! Absolutely loved it!

This was pretty cool. We really enjoyed it as we had never driven a buggy before. The guys were not very talkative and we never went that fast, which was a bit annoying. It's a quick trip.
