See Iceland's most iconic attraction and take a wild snowmobile ride on this incredible day tour. You’ll take in the sights of the famed Golden Circle and then plant your feet on the pedals of a zippy snowmobile, to spend an hour whizzing across the colossal ivory snows of Langjökull Glacier, the second-largest glacier in Iceland.

After hopping on a tour bus at, or near, your hotel or guesthouse, your odyssey will take you to Þingvellir National Park; a place known for its exceptional beauty and historical importance. Þingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, celebrating the world's longest running democratic parliament, the Alþingi, which was founded there in 930 AD.

The second stop is at the scorching geothermal area known as Geysir which is home to Strokkur, the most active geyser in Iceland, as well as countless steam vents and fumaroles, that characterise the area. 

From there, you will head to the top of Langjökull for an exhilarating one-hour snowmobile tour on the vast snowcap. Hiking the glacier is refreshing and eye-opening, to be sure, but you’ve not experienced it fully until you hit the ice at high speed. The view from this location is breathtaking, and on a clear day, a major portion of the Icelandic highlands and several other glaciers are visible.

On our way back to Reykjavík, we will stop by the final location on the Golden Circle, the stunning Gullfoss waterfall. At Gullfoss, you will have the opportunity to take a path to the cliffs which directly overlook the immense falls, and see massive quantities of water plummet violently into a deep, meandering gorge. You can feel the brisk spray on your face and truly breathe in the experience!

Don't miss out on this tour which offers a peek into Iceland’s astounding history and geography, as well as the unforgettable feel of the frosty wind in your lungs as you speed across the glacial ice cap of Langjökull. Check availability by choosing a date.

This was hands down the highlight of our trip. If you’re on the fence about it, I am here to tell you to go for it!! Breathtaking view from the glacier you snowmobile on and an experience you will never forget.

Did this tour at the end of March 2019 and it was amazing. The tour was well structured and although there was a lot packed in, it was completely stress free. The snowmobiling was an incredible experience I'll never forget. Gullfoss waterfall was also a brilliant highlight. All in all a bargain at £190. I would definitely book with Guideto again.

We had a great tour, in fact booked all our trips through Guide to Iceland and it couldn't have worked out more perfectly. Everything was well organised and our guide on this tour was Eric who was very interesting to listen to and made sure everyone was safe. We were blessed with amazing clear skies and sunny weather and the scenery was just spectacular. The snowmobile ride on the glacier was the icing on the cake!

The overall experience of this tour was great and I would highly recommend it to anyone planning to visit Iceland. The tour covered all the locations and activities as described and the snowmobile experience was one of the best ever! Our guide Lily was very interactive and informative throughout the tour. Right from the pick-up from near our accommodation to the drop back at the same location, everything was very well organized and planned.

We were a group of 4 and we totally enjoyed this tour. Our guide Lily was amazing, very helpful and informative at all times. We got lucky with the weather on the day of our tour so everything seemed even more worth it. The tour covered everything as described and the snowmobile experience was one of the best ever! We were very well taken care of overall. Highly recommended.

My husband and I had a great time on this tour! Our bus driver was a great driver, and our guide was so informative, friendly, and enthusiastic about the sites. It was so cold and windy, but the "mountain men" gave us very warm overalls, balaclavas, and helmets to wear for the snowmobile ride which was a lot of fun.
