A private extreme buggy adventure tour to the black sand beach

In this private extreme buggy adventure tour you will experience the unique black sand beach of the South Coast. You will be driving our unique and very powerful Polaris 1000 buggy cars, the most powerful buggies for rent in Iceland.

The tour

You will meet up with your guide at Buggy X-treme basecamp in the town of Hella. There you will be introduced to the buggy cars and get all necessary equipment. When you have been briefed and all dressed up, it’s time to start your extreme buggy adventure. From the basecamp you will drive down to one of the longest black sand beaches in Iceland, Þykkvibæjarfjara. Most of the driving will be done on a gravel road next to the river West Rangá. We will drive on the black sand for some time before we reach the shoreline.

This is a really quiet beach where you will enjoy driving our buggy’s on the soft black sand. You will also have a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean and see and feel the power of the waves. Þykkvabæjarfjara black sand beach holds some secrets that you will discover while enjoying the beautiful scenery.
