PART 1 – BUGGY ADVENTURING BEYOND REYKJAVIK
It’s no more than 15 minutes from your Reykjavik accommodation to our base camp. That’s why we love this city! Having picked you up*, we’ll take you to the camp for gear, instructions and safety training. No experience is necessary and our expert guides will make sure you know everything you need for a safe and fun buggy adventure. *We recommend customers to be two in a buggy, since you sit side by side. More fun!
OFF-ROAD BUGGY FUN IN ICELAND
We will drive off-road on a variety of terrains as we head for Úlfarsfell mountain. The ride to the top is a chance to experience the true thrills of buggy riding. And when you get there, you’ll be rewarded by a fantastic view across the whole city, the ocean, and the surrounding mountains.
LUNCH IN REYKJAVIK HARBOR
The old harbour is one of the coziest parts of town. There’s a nice selection of little restaurants and cafes, and we’re happy to make recommendations. While you refuel, you can look out across the bay and imagine the magnificent creatures that swim below the surface.
PART 2 – WHALE WATCHING BEYOND REYKJAVIK HARBOR
The boat is waiting as you head off in search of magnificent Mink whales and the other rich marine life of Faxaflói bay. A 3-hour guided sea tour provides a fascinating insight into the life of the sea, and great views back to Reykjavik. Whales are a lot harder to predict than buggy vehicles, so sightings are never guaranteed!
