Golden Circle + Ice caves at Langjökull on snowmobiles and super truck
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 host and detailed audio guide in ten languages, 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.
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 before you 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.
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 rush off for an unforgettable snowmobile ride on top of the glacier, stopping at and visiting a man made 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.

The first stop along the Gold Circle features a stunning views over the rift valley. A UNESCO heritage site with beautiful geographical features and a rich political history.
Located on the northern shores of Þingvallavatn (Iceland's largest lake), Þingvellir (anglicized as 'thingvellir') is the national pride of Iceland and our 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.
As the first stop along the tour, you will have an opportunity to walk through the park and use the restroom if needed.
The most iconic Iceland natural site, the Geysir hot springs are home to the original erupting geyser.
A favorite 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 (100 ft) into the air every few minutes.The area became active more than 1000 years ago and comprises more than a dozen hot hot spring holes. Although one 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.
Along the tour, the newly opened Geysir Center offers guests and travelers a chance to use the restroom and to catch some refreshments as well as lunch.
Next we kick the action into higher gear to get even closer to Iceland’s nature and go for a snowmobiling tour on Langjökull, Iceland’s second largest glacier.

Upon arriving at their base camp, you will be fully outfitted receive the appropriate equipment, such as helmets, overalls, overshoes, gloves and a hat so that you can fully enjoy the snowmobile ride on the vast wintery snow-scape.
After the nearly 3.5 hours snowmobiling tour and you head back to Gullfoss Waterfall where you will then have plenty of time to walk down and enjoy the views of one of Iceland's largest waterfalls.
