Tour itinerary

On the 1-hour buggy tour you will cruise in your very own dune buggy through stunning landscapes; a highlands feel only a short 30-minute drive from Reykjavik city. Splashing in puddles, driving on dirt tracks and climbing hills and obstacles are only a small part of what makes this activity so amazing – the rest of it is the amazing feeling of independence you feel as you self-drive a 4×4 ATV in the safest and most comfortable way possible.

At the buggy base, you are provided with all the necessary equipment to have an enjoyable experience; coveralls, boots, balaclavas, gloves and a helmet.
In case you splash in the puddles like a child in the rain, make sure to bring an extra set of clothes with you on this tour, as you might get wet!

On the lava cave tour, you will descend into the earth of Raufarhólshellir cave. This lava tube was formed over 5000 years ago, in one of the thousands of volcanic eruptions that formed our beautiful country. Your expert cave guide will lead you along a footbridge built along the floor of the cave, making this tour suitable for practically everybody! You will learn a whole about the geology of caves and volcanic formations and maybe even some cave-related folklore! The electric lighting strewn throughout the cave will help you see the vast array of colors on the cave walls, and the glimmer of natural bacteria which lines the walls in places. During winter icicles will take the shape of stalactites and stalagmites throughout the cave, adding a certain depth to the whole experience.

At the Lava Tunnel base, you will be provided with a helmet and headlights, and during winter months you will also be equipped with crampons to put over your shoes, for an easier walking experience on the ice.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions about this tour

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! 

If you have any more questions please call our customer help center for more information about the tour and policies.
