Tour itinerary

This is a guided tour designed for those who crave bumpy, dusty and dirty driving thrills and is a unique way to enjoy the Icelandic nature. It’s a fantastic adrenaline treatment and there is no extra charge for dust, mud, water splashes, or even snow! The tour is available all year round and is enjoyable in all weather – yes, even in rain… The Wetter the Better!

We are based only 20 minutes from downtown Reykjavik. Get dressed in our waterproof gear, strap into your two-seat Buggy and prepare to overcome obstacles in the rugged landscape by the slopes of Esja, the city mountain.

We drive directly onto bumpy mountain roads, climb hills, cross rivers, and splash around. We stop mid-way for the view, to take photos and to change drivers should you and your travel partner both want to experience the joy of driving a Buggy. You can also book a private buggy to get more driving time, but we promise that being a passenger is also brilliant fun.

All you need is a spirit for adventure and a valid driving license for the driver!

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.

Announcement regarding COVID-19

Dear customers, 

Here at Buggy Adventures we always put the safety of our customers at the forefront of everything we do. We are doing all that we can to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, but we also want to urge people to continue having fun, especially during this difficult period. 

All our activity takes place outside in the nature, far away from other people. We will remain open to individuals and small groups, but with somewhat limited capacity. We will also continue to take bookings for private tours.  

Given the limitations that the Icelandic government has put on social gatherings and the new rules regarding social distancing, we have taken measures to limit the number of people in our groups and are putting extreme emphasis on hygiene with cleaning of all contact surfaces, toilets and doorknobs after each tour. Of course, we also clean all our gear after each tour as standard. 

To guarantee the safety of our customers and to limit the spread of the virus we have put the following measures in place: 

  • We will guarantee a minimum distance of 2 metres between people during the activity (exception only made for couples and family members that want to share a buggy) 
  • Handwashing facilities and sanitisers are in place, as always 
  • All surfaces and gear is cleaned after each use 
  • Group size will not exceed 10 people 
  • If our customers prefer the use of their own gear such as helmets, gloves and waterproof clothing then they are of course welcome to bring it 
  • We will adjust measures regarding guidelines issued by the government at any given time. 

 

There has rarely been a greater need to keep spirits high and have fun, and that is where we excel! 

Best regards
