Overload your senses on this whole day of new experiences, along the Holy Trail of Buggy touring. Immerse yourself into the coarse, surreal beauty of the southern Highlands of Iceland. Drive along seemingly endless, sinuous lava tracks with non-stop, heart-filling exposure to the natural jewels of Fjallabak Nature Reserve. Volcano explosion craters. Vicious glacial rivers. Pure, fish-filled mountain lakes. Lava fields; old and new. Hot springs, with you bathing in them. All packed into one, intense day behind the wheel.

You will meet us at Hrauneyjar Highland Center. There the Buggy tour starts with a climb through one of the hydroelectric power plant facilities, that ensure Iceland runs on pure, abundant, carbon-free power.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most common questions, along with the complete answers from our Buggy Experts.

No, our buggies are very easy to drive. They are incredibly easy automatic machines that you will master how to drive in only a few minutes. 

No prior experience is needed. You will be driving an automatic 4 Wheel Drive UTV with a full roll cage and long travel suspension. It has the same controls as any automatic car or truck. Put the shift lever into drive and go. Even shifting into 4 wheel drive is just the push of a button.

Wear something you don’t mind getting wet and/or dirty. It is a very good idea to bring an extra set of clothing. Wear a warm base layer (the one touching your skin); wool and synthetic materials are best.

We provide our customers with a helmet, gloves, balaclavas, rubber boots and waterproof overalls.

The minimum age for Buggy Riders is 17 years old and the minimum age for passengers is 6 years old. Driver’s licence required.

Yes. These buggies are very safe. They are built with a low center of gravity so they are not tippy and the passengers are in a 4 point harness inside a complete roll cage. They are much safer than ATV Quad vehicles.

You set the pace of your tour. The pace of the tour always depends on the slowest driver. The tour is not a race. It should be fun and you will also be able to enjoy the scenery.

At Buggy Adventures we use the top of the line factory made 4-wheel drive CFMOTO ZFORCE 800 and ZFORCE 1000. These machines were designed with quality, performance and safety in mind and both models have long travel suspension to provide the smoothest ride possible over rugged terrain. Wild enough for the off-road pro and tame enough for the first time novice, our machines will not disappoint. You’ll be coming back for more!

No way, it’s even more fun riding in the rain!
