THE ULTIMATE SNOWMOBILE ADVENTURE

Iceland is known for its big glaciers, high waterfalls and erupting geyser, on this tour you will witness it all in on the same tour.Your day starts early in Reykjavik, where you board our comfortable bus to the top attractions in Iceland, led by a personal host and detailed audio guide in ten languages.

Your first stop will be a Þingvellir national park where the oldest parliament in the world was founded and the tectonic plates are being pulled apart every day.

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.

At the Gullfoss area you will join 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 glacier ice cave.

Þingvellir National Park

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.

Geysir Geothermal Springs

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.
