Here the bubbling springs put on a magnificent show every 5-8 minutes. We stop at Gullfoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s greatest falls, before we start making our way through the rough terrain towards Langjökull glacier. At our camp, you will gear up for your snowmobiling ride. After a short introduction and safety briefing, we head out on the second biggest glacier in Iceland – Langjökull. We return to Reykjavík after an exciting day with memories for a lifetime.

Your day will begin by being picked up by the snowmobile operator from Reykjavik you will then drive off to the best highlights of the Golden Circle on our Super Jeep which will be our ride of the day. This tour allows visitors to get in touch with some of Iceland’s most famous and exciting natural phenomena. Your first stop for the day will be at Þingvellir National Park. Þingvellir is one of Iceland’s most historic sites as it was here that Iceland’s first parliament, Althingi was founded in the year 930 AD. Þingvellir or like some like to call it Pingvellir is also where the tectonic plates meet so beautifully and you can jump in between them. Þingvellir is where the softness and roughness of Icelandic nature live in perfect harmony with waterfalls, streams, and lakes surround this extraordinary place.

From Þingvellir you will then head to the world-renowned geothermal area around Geysir hot spring where you can witness gurgling bubbling water burst up to 25 meters high. The area is covered in numerous hot springs, some active others not. The area is smoke filled and mysterious but exciting at the same time.  Strokkur is now the main number of the show as it bursts every 4 to 10 minutes. He is the baby brother of Geysir but no lesser and you are in for quite the spectacle!

From Geysir, you will continue on to Gullfoss, “the Golden waterfall”. Gullfoss is a great sight and a perfect photo spot with water rushing down three steps of lava layers exhibiting breathtaking power and grandeur. This is the final stop of the Golden Circle but definitely not of the day.

There is no lunch is included in the tour but at Gullfoss café we will fill up our energy for the adventures ahead. Gullfoss café offers a wide variety of lunch options for you to purchase but some prefer to pack a lunch themselves. It’s up to you.

Next up, you kick the action into a higher gear and go for a 1 hour snowmobiling ride on Langjökull, Iceland’s second largest glacier. Our Super jeep has no problem reaching the glacier camp on Langjökull and the views whilst getting there are amazing. Our snowmobile guides will welcome you, give a briefing and proper gear for the snowmobiling. Once you are all suited up there is nothing left to do than to step onto your snowmobile and follow your guide on an hour’s glacier expedition. To explore a glacier is an enchanting experience on its own but to do it on a snowmobile is something else!

After the ride of a lifetime, we will join again at the glacier camp before jumping into our Super Jeep again and starting our scenic drive back to Reykjavík.

This tour offers the adventure of a lifetime in just one day. Sign up and do something you have never experienced before!
