Welcome to Iceland! You‘ve come this far, now all you have to do is make the most of it. To pack as much of Iceland into one day as comfortably possible, join our Golden Circle & Ice Cave with Snowmobiling tour. The name says it all, but read on regardless, it’s all a journey.
Iceland’s Golden Circle needs little introduction as the famous stable of sites all visitors must see at least once. These sites are the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Thingvellir, the magnificent waterfall Gullfoss and Geysir, the geyser all the other geysers are named after. Thingvellir is not only a site of great historical importance as the original home of the old Viking parliament Althing, but also of great geological importance as this is where the Eurasian and North American continental plates meet. What you might not read in a guidebook is that Thingvellir is also a huge part of the Icelandic psyche, a place that embodies so much of what it means to be Icelandic. Thingvellir is extraordinarily beautiful as well as powerful in its understated lush greenery, its vast lake, its waterfalls, gorges, rifts, fissures and lava. It is also a very different place from one season to the next and even from one day to the next. The weather plays a huge role in the character of Thingvellir.
Full of history and awe the tour heads to Geysir and its geothermal surroundings. It’s a magical place of raw natural forces, where bubbling hot springs put on an erupting show for visitors. Gullfoss is one of Iceland’s most beloved waterfalls and its beautiful form combined with its sheer power is sure to touch something within everyone who stand in its presence. We’re not trying to be dramatic; we’re just stating facts here.
Snowmobiling on a glacier in Iceland feels just as James Bond-esque as it sounds and it is a great way to meet a glacier, up, close and personal. The glacier in this case is Langjökull, a white snowy desert with glorious views.
And to top it all off, the tour visits an actual ice cave to provide a literal insight into the approx. 500-year-old ice of Langjökull.
Let us introduce you to these highlights of the unique wonders of Iceland.
A valid driver's licence is required. 2 persons per vehicle. Only one child is permitted per adult on this tour. The operation of this tour depends on conditions on the glacier and the weather.
