Buggy Adventures offer a thrilling experience only a 20-minute drive from downtown Reykjavik. At first, the offer of being strapped into a tiny vehicle to willingly spend an hour of your life speeding along a bumpy and damaged road doesn’t sound very enticing. But once you sign up: oh boy, you’re in for so much fun.
You shouldn’t completely lose your mind, however, as even these little magic cars can roll over. But they’re equipped with roll-cages, and the drivers are led by experienced guides, so there’s no real danger. And don’t take the description “off-road car” too literally, as no off-roading is allowed—the tours are eco-friendly and don’t damage nature.
One of the owners of Buggy Adventures, Harpa Groiss, says that these tours really are for everybody. They’re popular not only with tourists but Icelanders as well, enjoyed by families, and groups of women, bachelors and seniors alike. For those who aren’t going for the driving experience, there’s the chance to enjoy scenery. The route is located between the slopes of mountain Esja and the beautiful nature and characteristically vast fields of Iceland.
The company is only 1.5 years old, but has had more than 4.5 thousand clients, without a single complaint. The tours vary in length and difficulty, but all manage to put an excited grin on the face of each participant.
