This tour takes you to not only one but TWO mountain tops with alluring vistas and amazing opportunities to see the city and gorgeous surrounding nature in a whole new and exciting way.
You can meet us at the base or you can be picked up from your accommodation or bus stop. Our base camp is about 15 minutes out of the city center and there you will find your friendly guide and he or she will go over everything safety-related you need to know for the day.
After getting all geared up we will pick our Buggy and step on the gas for a trip of a lifetime. Ahead are mountains trails, rivers, rocky trails and steep slopes which just add to the fun of riding a Buggy.
Our key destinations during the tour are the famous and popular Hafrafell and Úlfarsfell mountains. Those are known for their beautiful location and the stunning views that await anyone who reached their top. Not only will you get the chance to look over the whole of Reykjavík, Iceland’s capital but also far into the Reykjanes peninsula home to the Blue lagoon and magical lava settings. On cloudless days you can even catch a glimpse of the extraordinary Snæfellsjökull glacier which many long believed to be way to the center of the earth as written about in the world famous science fiction novel Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne (1864).
The Buggies are two-seaters, 4×4, fully automatic, fully inspected and road legal. They are also known for excellent safety and great design features, such as the roll cage, safety belts, and double A-arm front suspension. All of which makes for a Buggy ride that is not only very safe but also comfortable!

Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Elding has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summertime).
Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs. Most of our jeep tours are also suitable for children over the age of 6 years old. If you would like a nice and relaxing experience we would also recommend the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon tour.

We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at the time of booking.
The Kolviður Fund is the oldest, most respected carbon offsetting program in Iceland. With your support, one tree will be planted in special Kolviður forests in Iceland to carbon offset your tour with us.
Kolviður forests are strategically planted to absorb the maximum amount of CO2 and the forests are protected for a minimum of 60 years. During their lifetime the trees absorb carbon and store it in their root system, trunk, and branches. Trees also prevent soil erosion and maintain storage of carbon in the soil.
