ABOUT THE TOUR
Overview of the tour
Our best hands-on-approach tour! While in Vík, come experience breathtaking nature first-hand in an open vehicle. Drive through a private black sand beach enjoying the beautiful Icelandic scenery. Our local guide will lead the tour on our buggies, our open vehicles, which are stable and secure for even novice riders to steer by themselves.
A buggy ride will allow you to be close to nature while still going over rough terrain. Our local guides will take you into the mountain past Þakgil where you will have the majestic Mýrdalsjökull glacier right behind you. Þakgil is a beautiful hidden gem, where we will explore mountain caves, and unique landscapes covered by vivid green moss.
We will cross some rivers, but no need to worry, we will lend you all the safety equipment that is needed and guide you through the usage of the vehicle. Helmets and overalls are going to make this trip safe while experiencing the adrenaline of fast driving while keeping you comfortable from the weather elements.
Stories and photo-shoot time
There will be ample time to take pictures of the area and our guides are always happy to take a picture of you behind the wheel! Our guides will show you the local sights, and tell you folk tales from the area that were passed on between generations of locals. Our trails will definitely be enjoyed by both novice and expert drivers.
Head back home
After 2-3 hours we will safely return you, full of memories, to our starting point of our Adventure Centre in Vík, so you can continue with your trip.
