See the sights of Iceland’s legendary Golden Circle on a full-day tour by 'super jeep'’ a spacious SUV specially designed to travel over the rugged Icelandic terrain with ease. Relax as a certified guide drives, and enjoy stops to visit Thingvellir National Park, the hot spring of Geysir and "golden" waterfall of Gulfoss. For an exhilarating highlight, take to the vast Langjokull glacier to try your hand at snowmobiling!
Leave your centrally located Reykjavik pick up point in the comfort of a super jeep, a uniquely designed SUV mounted on monster tires that measure around 46 inches (120cm) tall. Relax in the spacious seats as you travel out of the city to your first stop of your Golden Circle tour: Thingvellir National Park. Holding a special place in the hearts of the Icelandic people for its historical importance and unique geographical features, Thingvellir was the area where Iceland’s first Parliament was formed in the first century. Hop out of your jeep to enjoy a walk around and soak up stunning views over Iceland’s rugged terrain. Continue by jeep along the twisting mountain tracks to see the bubbling and spouting hot springs of Geysir Hot Spring area. Exploding every few minutes, the geyser is an incredible spectacle to behold; have your camera ready to capture the geothermic action! Continue to the waterfall of Gulfoss with its double cascades, and feel the spray of glacial water on your face as you walk around the falls. Stop for lunch in Gullfoss cafe, perhaps trying the traditional Icelandic lamb stew (own expense), and then enjoy your tour’s exhilarating highlight: a snowmobiling experience on Langjokull, Iceland’s second largest glacier. After a comprehensive safety briefing, hop aboard your snowmobile (2 per vehicle) and follow your guide on a route around the dramatic, ice-clad landscape. Return to your jeep after snowmobiling, and travel back through the countryside toward Reykjavik. Your day trip then finishes with a drop-off back to Reykjavik. Please note: The order of this day trip may be altered to ensure that the snowmobiling takes place during the best light conditions.
