PART 1 - 1 Hour Buggy Tour:

Looking for a thrilling adventure in Reykjavik? Our 1-hour buggy tour is the perfect way to explore the beautiful Icelandic countryside. We'll pick you up from your Reykjavik accommodation and take you to our base camp, where our expert guides will provide gear, instructions, and safety training. Don't worry if you've never ridden a buggy before – our guides will ensure you have all the knowledge you need for a fun and safe ride.

From the base camp, we'll take you on a scenic route around Lake Hafravatn, where you'll have the opportunity to ride on a variety of terrains. Then, we'll head to the top of Hafrafell mountain, where you'll be able to take in stunning views of the Hengill mountain range, Iceland's third most active volcanic system, and the geothermal power plant for the capital area, Hellisheiði. You'll also be able to see Faxaflói bay, the entire capital region, the Bláfjöll mountain range, and Reykjavik's house mountain, Esja.

After the tour, we'll drop you off at the old harbor by the whale watching company, where you can explore the area's charming selection of cafes and restaurants. Refuel and enjoy the views of the bay, where you might just catch a glimpse of the incredible creatures that swim below the surface.

PART 2 - Whale Watching:

Experience the wonders of the ocean on our 3-hour whale watching tour in Faxaflói Bay. The boat will be waiting for you as we set off in search of Mink whales and other fascinating marine life. As you journey through the sea, you'll be treated to breathtaking views of Reykjavik from a unique perspective.

Our expert guides will provide fascinating insights into the life of the sea and its inhabitants, making this tour both educational and awe-inspiring. Keep your eyes peeled, as whale sightings are never guaranteed, and the creatures of the sea are harder to predict than the vehicles on the buggy tour. However, with a bit of luck, you might spot these magnificent creatures swimming and playing in their natural habitat. Don't miss out on this unforgettable experience – book your whale watching tour today!

We had the best time on this tour and was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! The views were breathtaking and loved seeing the frozen lake. Our guides Louis and Valentin were such a good laugh and loved hearing about their life in Iceland. Only wish we’d booked a longer excursion!
