Tour description

Buggy Adventures will start your day-of-adventures with a pick-up from your hotel/guesthouse beginning at 9:00, and take you just outside Reykjavík city, to Mt. Esja. There you will be geared up with all necessary equipment for an adrenaline filled ride around the slopes of Mt. Esja. Don’t be afraid to get dusty, dirty or wet when driving though the puddles! Buggy Adventures will drop you off at the harbour where you have a chance to grab a quick lunch before you board the next adventure.

Be sure to board the Andrea before 13:00 for the whale watching tour. The guide will share all his knowledge about the wildlife you might encounter on Faxaflói bay – not to mention all the spectacular nature that surrounds you when out on the bay. The whales you might encounter in the area are humpback whales, minke whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises.

At the end of your tour Special Tours will drop you off at your designated hotel/bus stop.
