We booked this activity the night before, which was very convenient. My wife and I did an afternoon buggy tour after a morning of hiking east of Akureyri. At first were so sad that it started to rain right as we got to the tour, but it turned out to be the perfect activity! My wife and I took turns... More

I went on a 1,5 h horse riding tour around Skjaldarvík with 3 other girls and two guides. I haven't been on many horses before but the icelandic horses are soooo cute, tame and friendly and "Lauki" (my horse) was an amazing and absolute "easy-going" companion ;-). The guides Nikki and Julia did a great job explaining everything and guiding... More

Total disappointment! Misleading activity based on the description on the website. This was, by far, our most waste of money in Iceland. We drove around in an open area before getting back to the farm,. The guide said he was not a real guide but was just helping the owner because he was away. Very limited information and when asked...

We went on a horse riding near Akureyri, around the fiord. The views were awesome and we could also learn morè about icelandic horses. The guide Elisa was very nice and teached us very well! We really recomend it!

My wife went horseriding, I went on the buggy tour...... 800cc four wheel drive ATV with roll cage; it really looked the business. After the intro I was kitted out in a one piece waterproof, clean helmet with sun and clear visors, the controls - dead simple - were explained, and I was safely belted in. I was solo but... More

I loved coming here for horseback riding. Will pick you up and drop you off and the horses and guide were so nice! The tour was a great length and we even had the dog to keep us company. Afterwards they let me use the hot tub! So nice and lovely, highly recommended.

I did an hour buggy tour with them. That was really great and recommend them for any tour. They provide pick up from Akureyri anf offer un hot top bath at the end of the tour. People are very friendly and service minded.

Just by the Akureyri you will find everything you want in Iceland at this beautiful resort. The food is Icelandic and original with good ingredients, activities are ozom and the jacuzzi that you can use while staying overnight is amazing, especially when you have the northern lights during winter proximate every other night.

Tried buggy for the first time and it was loads of fun. The buggies are easy to drive. There are many very fun trails around the farm where we went on the buggies and had so much fun. I really recommend it!

I have heard about this buggytour from friends that have already joined a tour earlier in summer this year. They loved it and I thought that me and my friend would probably love this as well as we like adventures and I've never driven such a buggy before, so we really wanted to try it. Before the tour starts everybody... More
