Buggy whalewatching

Fun family day with a buggy whale watching combination

Combine an exciting buggy tour under the slopes of Esja, with a tranquil and educational whale watching tour on Faxaflói bay.

We start the fun by picking you up and transporting you just out of the city limits for your buggy tour. At the buggy base, we gear you up in all the necessary equipment and give you a briefing of the vehicle. Once you are ready, we take you on the thrill of a lifetime on this 1 hour adrenaline-inducing buggy tour by the slopes of Esja Mountain, climbing hills, running through river beds and much more. No extra charge for the dust, mud, water splashes or even snow!

After the buggy tour, we drive you to Reykjavík Old Harbor area, where you have some time to have lunch before your whale watching tour at 13:00. The boats are comfortable and cozy, with fantastic interior, large outdoors viewing platforms and a safe family environment. The crew will point out where you can spot the whales and give you information about the different species of whales and seabirds you can expect to see.
