What awesome experience! We are a family of 3 9-yr old daughter and we felt comfortable driving the buggy in snow and ice. The trail took us up one mountain outside Reykjavik and we had an awesome view! Our tour guide Indi was great and was passionate about all things Icelandic as most Icelanders are. He even gave us great recommendation for lunch which was absolutely good! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone planning to visit Reykjavik.
