We’re in late October. Sitting at the desk, looking out the window I can spot green grass – a lot of it actually. The kids are walking home from school, wearing thin jackets. This would’ve been big news 20 something years ago. The Icelandic weather is of course always unpredictable in the long run. For the last decade or so people of the northern part of the country have been getting more and more used to having little or no snow before christmas. This of course has caused dramatic changes in activities for the locals and tourists as well. All of a sudden it’s quite easy to do something we defined as “summer activity” before in late October, beginning of November. And that brings us to Húsavík Adventures’s Buggys!

Our Buggy cars have gained great doze of positive atmosphere for the great enjoyment people take in driving the 800 cc machines, in a diverse landscape even the locals have never been to before. Imagine two hours of gravel roads, mountains, lakes, brooks and complete wilderness where you cannot see any buildings or people outside of your group. Priceless!

The Buggys are not limited to snowless conditions though. A few weeks ago we had snow in the area above Húsavík for a few days ago which then melted. Driving the buggys in a little bit of snow was even more fun! We’re looking forward to the upcoming years, enjoying quality times with our visitors, surrounded by our hidden treasures in the highlands!

The buggys are great during the wintertime as well!

Last Thursday four of our expected ten Buggy cars arrived to Húsavík. The CF Moto Zforce 800’s will be used in the most entertaining way, driving on tracks above Húsavík with the most beautiful view there is. The Húsavík Adventures crew is currently working on the finalization of the route – a challenge for everybody involved as there’s plenty to choose from!

The estimated two hour tours will be available from July 1st, with two departures a day at 10:00 and 14:00. Driver’s licence is needed in order to drive the cars.

Buckle up ladies and gentlemen! For decades Húsavík has been known as the Whale Capital of Iceland (and even Europe) for it’s great whale community that includes pioneers in whale watching, the Whale Museum, whale research center from the University of Iceland and no-whale-eating-policy. Of course Húsavík has therefore got most of its tourism because of whale related activity. Húsavík Adventures goal at the foundation of the company was to expand the town’s activity source – simply by offering our lovely guests to do more while enjoying our delightful town a little longer.

Well now it’s time. At June 1st, Húsavík Adventures will start a new activity. We will offer Buggy car adventures, available for all the 12 months of the year. The 800 cc CF Moto cars are registered and are allowed on usual roads. We will focus on gravel paths in the Húsavík area, in a various terrain with the Icelandic nature at its best. An experienced guide will drive in front of the group and share his knowledge in the pit stops along the way.

Tickets available online. We can’t wait. Game on !
