One of my greatest experiences in iceland. Had a really cool tour through the highlands. Our tour guide Sir Kaktuz made sure we had a great time. Took his time to tell us about the area and gave us some great tips to visit. Besides the easy going and great tourguide..riding on the small gravel roads and through the rivers is amazing. We had a misty day so we missed some nice views up on the mountain..but i couldnt care less. Views enough in iceland, but racing though the mountain on a buggy was priceless. 10/10 would recommend!

Thrilling, Adrenaline Packed Experience
Aug 2019 • Couples
Had the opportunity to go on a tour with Alessandro and he was such an exceptional guide. He was informative, thorough and engaging the entire time. He took us on some insanely amazing trails and we stopped a couple of times for him to give information and specifics on the area. His knowledge is exceptional and he has dived deep into being a expert on the specifics of Iceland.The river part of the tour was cool and there was sheep that were running so nature is everywhere around you, it was quite spectacular. Thanks Allessandro for a great tour and you should 100% choose to visit Safari Quads while in Iceland for a adrenaline packed experience!

Dear Rich, We totally agree with you. Our 3h Buggy tour is one of the best, going deep into the countryside where you can see all the wonders the Icelandic nature has to offer. Alessandro sure adds up to the fun. He always tries his best to give as much information as possible to our clients. He was really happy to hear that you had a great time with him. We hope to see you again soon. All the best, Toni

1-Day Buggy Adventure - Lifetime Memories
Jun 2018 • Couples
My wife and I booked the full day buggy tour through Safari a couple of weeks ago. The tour was an incredibly unique way to experience Iceland that exceeded our expectations. Everyone we worked with was fantastic. I am a bit OCD, and Bryndís promptly answered all my questions leading up to our booking date.

Our guide, Kristjan, was very passionate about his job and working to ensure that we were having the best experience we could.

The buggy paths we went on varied from rocky, muddy, and a few water crossings. We were able to go at a pace that was fairly exhilarating, yet still allowed for taking in the incredible landscape. In total, we covered about 115 miles. This is obviously not an inexpensive tour, but i have no doubt that in 5 years I'll still be thinking and talking about it.
