1 Hour Buggy Safari | Outskirts of Reykjavik

Hop aboard a four-wheel-drive, automatic buggy for a thrilling ride around the scenic outskirts of Reykjavík. This tour is perfect for those who love adventure, spectacular views and enjoy the unconventional.

The base camp for this excursion is just outside the capital city; you can get there yourself, or opt for a pick-up while booking for a small additional fee. Once you reach the camp, your friendly guides will introduce you to the safety procedures and your buggy and allow you to get into the safety equipment provided, which consists of a helmet, balaclava, gloves and overalls. In rainy weather, you will also be provided with protective gear.

Once you are all ready, you will hop in, and start your adventure. Buggies sit two people each, so you and your partner can have a turn behind the wheel, and a turn just enjoying the ride. If you wish for your own, however, you just need to specify in booking and pay an additional 9,900 ISK.

No licenses are required for this tour; children from twelve are allowed to operate a buggy. Children six and over are permitted to participate as passengers.

For an hour, you will shoot through the fields, lava-fields and forests surrounding Reykjavík, rushing past lakes and rivers, and ascending the nearby peaks. Keep your camera handy, as the views from these mountains are incredibly stunning. Whether the area is covered in winter snow or in full summer bloom, your surroundings promise to be beautiful.

You will make several photo stops, before returning to the base-camp. As this tour is reasonably short, you can easily fit it in with other activities be they in Reykjavík or further afield, allowing you to make the most of your holiday.

Don’t miss your opportunity to see the beautiful surroundings of Reykjavík, in this new, exciting and unusual way. Check availability by choosing a date.
