Golden Circle Tour in a Super Jeep & Snowmobiling

Specially customized Super Jeeps with their massive tyres are a unique Icelandic invention, the locals ingenious way of traversing rugged terrain, fording rivers and driving across glaciers. These vehicles have even successfully crossed Antarctica. Riding in one of them is a special treat and a fascinating insight into jeep culture in Iceland. Driving in our Super Jeeps we get to see the spectacular spouting geyser & hot springs, experience the magnificent Gullfoss Waterfall and walk in the footsteps of Vikings down the lava canyon where the American and European continents have been pulling apart in Þingvellir National Park. Then step aboard a Super Truck and drive into the glacier-covered central highlands where you get to ride across one of the biggest glaciers in the world on an amazing snowmobile tour!

The tour starts with a visit to Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site listing and the birthplace of the longest running parliament in the world. This is also where the great continental plates of America and Europe have been pulling apart and the resulting rift valley between them is clearly visible on the shores of Iceland´s biggest lake.

The next stop is at Geysir Hot Springs, the home of the original geyser and one of the most photographed places in the world. Here the ground trembles and super heated water & steam erupts spectacularly into the sky from the spouting Strokkur geyser every few minutes.

Next we stop for a leisurely walk down to Gullfoss Waterfall. This is where the powerful Hvítá glacier river cascades down 32 meters on two levels into a narrow canyon with a thundering roar.

Where the central highlands start, with its untouched pristine nature, you board one of our custom-made Super Trucks, capable of driving across rugged terrain thanks to its enormous tyres. The drive to the snowmobile base camp at the foot of the Langjökull Glacier is a unique Arctic Highland experience and the snowmobile tour that follows is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Ride across the eternally frozen snow and ice fields of one of the biggest glaciers in the world on a guided snowmobile tour, exploring one of the last true wilderness areas in Europe and indeed the world.

This is one of our all-time favourites and a classic Icelandic day tour.

Tour Highlights

Þingvallavatn

Þingvallavatn is the largest natural lake in Iceland, lies perched on the rift valley separating the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. Most of it is in Þingvellir. The Silfra fissure pumps glacial water, filtered through the surrounding lava , into the lake, where the mineral rich fluid fertilises a variety of vegetation.

Gullfoss

Gullfoss is a waterfal that flows from Hvítá glacial river. It plummets down 32 meters into a canyon measuring up to a 70 meters deep. The waterfall's existence is the result of a hard fought legal battle in 1907 by the first Icelandic environmentalist, Sigríður Tómasóttir.

Þingvellir

Þingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. It is a National Park since 1930 and a UNESCO world heritage site, hosting the old Þingvellir parliament. It lies in a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

Langjökull

Langjökull Glacier is the second biggest glacier in Iceland. Langjökull is the home of the unique glacier cave and a paradise for snowmobile and super-jeep lovers. Its volume is 195 km³ and the ice is up to 580 m (1,900 ft) thick. The highest point of the ice cap is about 1,450 m (4,760 ft) above sea level.

Geysir

Geysir, southwestern Iceland is the first geyser described in a printer source and the first known among Europeans. Geysir is in Haukadalur valley, also home to Strokkur geyser. Eruptions at Geysir can be up to 70 metres. Strokkur now erupts every 8-10 minutes from 15-20 metres up to 40 metres high.

Almannagjá

Historically, Almannagjá was a campsite for the people of the Parliament (Alþingi) every summer. Hence the name meaning Everyman's Gorge. Through it runs the Öxará river, cascading down a waterfall forming the infamous Drekkingarhylur, where adulterous women were thrown into the abyss to drown.

"“These guys raise the bar in tourism services”"

A phenomenal tour group, tip top services! Being in the hospitality industry, one is always inclined to observe the "little extras that go a long way", the small details that set a company apart from the rest. Reykjavik Sightseeing went above and beyond my expectations. They run a fleet of exceptionally new, modern and comfortable buses which make longer tour travel an absolute dream.

"“Wow just wow”"

Went on our aurora tour our first night in Iceland. Got picked up on time from our hotel. What a night !!! Our tour guide was fantastic. Informative patient and enthusiastic for what he was doing. The buses all had tablets in the seat pocket but take your own earphones to listen in your own language. What a display !!!!!!! Best they had seen in a long time. The guide had binoculars telescopes and endless enthusiasm. Definately use them again 10/10.
