BUCKLE UP – FOR A TWO HOUR BLUE MOUNTAINS ADVENTURE
Ready for a tour that takes you all the way to Iceland’s third most active volcanic system with all the trails, thrills and amazing views you can handle? Along the way, you’ll tackle gravel paths, rocky trails and steep slopes in these amazingly fun buggies. Oh, and a filming location is also waiting for you.
BUGGY BASECAMP – MINUTES FROM REYKJAVIK
We’ll collect you from your Reykjavik accommodation.* Next stop: our base camp, just 15 minutes from the city. That’s where you get the gear and training you need for a safe and exciting buggy adventure.
A BUGGY TOUR WITH STUNNING MOUNTAIN VIEWS
You start driving your buggy on a lonely trail in the backlands of Reykjavik. Following the trail, you will reach Hengill mountain range and Hellisheiðarvirkjun, the power plant for Reykjavik. Your guide will lead you to an area that looks like the moon. The first stop will be at the geothermal area next to the geothermal power plant. The area was a film location for the movie “The secret life of Walter Mitty”. After your stop, you head back closer to Reykjavik. You are taking a gravel road into the stunning Blue Mountains. The next stop is Vífilsfell mountain, named after a slave of Ingólfur Arnarson, the first permanent settler in Iceland.
