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 30-minute drive from the city centre, 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.
