Golden Circle & Ice Cave by Snowmobile
Join us for the ultimate snowmobile and Glacier Ice cave adventure. Iceland is known for its big glaciers, high waterfalls and erupting geyser, on this tour you will witness it all in one day.
Your day starts early in Reykjavik, where you board our comfortable bus and set off to see the top attractions in Iceland. The tour is led by a personal making sure your experience is informative and fun at the same time.
Your first stop will be a Þingvellir national park where the oldest parliament in the world was founded and the tectonic plates are pulling apart every day.
Þingvellir National Park
Located on the northern shores of Þingvallavatn, Iceland's largest lake, Þingvellir is the national pride of Iceland and the first National Park. It is, for one, a key location in Icelandic history as the oldest existing parliament in the world first assembled there in 930 AD. For this reason, Þingvellir has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is, therefore, a protected national park due to its unique geology and natural features. From the viewing area the Almannagjá canyon between two tectonic plates can be seen, a visual representation of continental drift.
From Þingvellir you will drive through lush lava fields and farmlands until the earth starts to tremble and steam rises from the ground at Geysir geothermal area. You will have around one hour to take in the beautiful scenery at Geysir and witness Strokkur erupting few times.
Geysir Hot Springs
A favourite stop along the Golden Circle is the highly active Geysir Hot Spring Area with boiling mud pits and the lively Strokkur which spouts water 30 meters into the air every few minutes. The area became active more than 1000 years ago and comprises more than a dozen hot spring holes. Although you can only see steam emerging from the surface of Geysir these days, its name was adopted to represent spouting hot springs all over the world.
We then continue to Gullfoss Waterfall. Gullfoss waterfall is the queen of Icelandic waterfalls, where the water rushes down a narrow canyon with indescribable force, painting the air with a glittering mist.
As one of the most popular attractions in all of Iceland, Gullfoss is a waterfall located in the Canyon of the Hvítá River in the southwest of the country. The beautiful Hvítá river rushes southward in three steps into a narrow canyon with a breath-taking roar and grandeur. Furthermore, on clear days the magnificent Langjökull glacier, Iceland's second largest glacier, can be seen in the distance. Guests may use the restroom and purchase food and refreshments at this location as well.
You complete your day with a super truck ride up to Langjökull glacier, the second largest glacier in Europe. Once you have reached the glacier’s edge you will gear up and set off for an unforgettable snowmobile ride on top of the glacier, stopping at and visiting a manmade ice cave. The crystal-like glacier ice underneath thick layers of snow is a sight you will never forget.
After walking under the glacier you will ride your snowmobile back to the warm glacier hut to be taken back to Gullfoss waterfall, where you board the bus again for a comfortable ride back to Reykjavik after a day of amazing adventures.
