Top Of The World Tour

Come along on a supercharged tour to witness the northern lights in a spectacular fashion. Forget the buses and the big crowds for on this guided tour, you will travel by super jeep and snowmobiles.

You will be picked up from the city in the afternoon to start our journey into the wilderness. We then head off towards the direction of Langjökull Glacier, Europe's 2nd largest glacier and our main area of operation. We start by driving past Þingvellir national park, Geysir hot spring and then Gullfoss the waterfall. Your professional and highly experienced driver guide will pick up some light dinner and drinks on the way.

Once past Gullfoss, we drive further onto the Icelandic highlands, finally reaching Langjökull Glacier and our mountain base camp. There, we will put on some warm overalls, helmets, gloves, balaclavas and waterproof shoe covers. Once the whole group is geared up, our professional guide will give a brief and basic instruction on how to operate the snowmobiles. Finally, we will head off on an exciting and adventurous northern lights tour.

Snowmobiling through the dramatic shapes of the huge glacier and the shimmering snowfields, we try our luck with the northern lights hunting. If the weather gods and fortune are on our side, we will be lucky enough to witness the wonders of the universe, the aurora borealis dancing and fluctuating in all its glory. Along with the stunning northern lights, we'll also be able to experience the beautiful stars covering the night sky at an altitude well beyond 1,000m or approximately 3,280ft above sea level, giving you the feeling that you can almost reach out and grab the stars with your own hands.

You can be sure to create an unforgettable memory during this tour, the kind that will last a lifetime. We invite you on this mysterious journey into the magical winter wonderland!
