Golden Circle Tour with Langjokull Glacier Snowmobile Ride
Take a thrilling ride on a snowmobile at the base of the Langjokull Glacier for an unforgettable and unique Arctic adventure. Visit some of the most popular natural attractions and see the diverse landscapes that populate the country as you tour the stunning Golden Circle.
- Discover the three major natural spectacles of Iceland, the Gullfoss Waterfall, Thingvellir National Park and the Geysir Hot Springs.
- Enjoy a guided commentary from an expert guide, who will be at your side throughout the tour.
- Feel the adrenaline rush of riding on frozen snow and ice fields on one of the world's largest glaciers in powerful snowmobiles.
Your tour will begin once you have been picked up from your hotel. With a headset for each visitor, you can enjoy a brief overview of the geography and history of the area through a multilingual audioguide. You will first visit the Thingvellir National Park, well-known for its remarkable tectonic and volcanic activity, and home to one of the most spectacular rift valleys known to man, right on the shores of Iceland' largest lake, Thingvallavatn.
You will then make your way to the geothermal area of Haukadalur, home to the still active geysers, Strokkur and Geysir. Geysir happens to be the first geyser described in the printed source and was one of the first famous geysers in Europe (also serving as the origin for the word 'geyser'). Geysir's eruptions reach a height of 70 meters to this day and the sight of Strokkur erupting every 10 minutes is one that is sure to be memorable.
The Gullfoss waterfall, also known as the Golden Falls is a waterfall situated in the canyons of southwest Iceland and presents one of the most unique and stunning spectacles in the world. A two-step waterfall, Gullfoss consists of water melting from the Langjokull glacier, as it plummets into a steep gorge cut into the natural rock formations in the region. The spray of water, as it cascades to the ground, with a backdrop of the famous Icelandic natural beauty is truly an unforgettable sight!
After the conclusion of the Golden Circle tour, a hair-raising adventure in the Highlands of Iceland awaits you. Custom made Super Trucks will take you across the rugged and snowy terrain, their large tires are the only things that allow you to travel here. The black and grey soil shows no sign of any plant life. Once you have reached the bottom of the Langjokull Glacier, the snowmobile experience will begin. As you drive along the fields of snow and ice, the remoteness of the region is striking. Sailing over the glistening ice is undoubtedly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

The adrenaline rush on the snow mobile was real-- a little too real. If you're scared of fast moving vehicles, don't go on it
I couldn't ride on the snowmobile because I am three months pregnant, so this was a bummer
Rushing through the glacial mountains on powerful snowmobiles was all I needed to make my day- this must be on all of your bucket lists
