Know More about this tour

Get picked up from your Reykjavík accommodations at around 8am and depart from Reykjavík early enough to catch the golden morning sun.

Settle in to the modern, comfortable bus, equipped with computer tablets in each seat. On the tablets you can use the GPS-sensitive audio guide, which is available in 10 languages. On board also find a USB charger and free WiFi. Should you have any further questions, your local guide will happily assist you.

The tour starts with a visit to Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the birthplace of the Althing, one of the oldest parliaments in the world. It is also here that the great continental plates of North America and Eurasia have dramatically pulled apart and the resulting rift valley is clearly visible on the shores of Iceland´s biggest lake.

The next stop is at the Geysir geothermal area, home to the Strokkur geyser, which dramatically erupts every five to 10 minutes, making for fantastic photographs.

Next, stop for a leisurely walk down to the mighty Gullfoss Waterfall. Here the Hvítá glacial river cascades down 105 feet (32 meters) on two levels into a narrow canyon with a thundering roar.

At the beginning of the pristine uninhabited central highlands, board a custom-made super truck capable of driving across rough snowy terrain thanks to its enormous tires. Then drive to the snowmobile base camp at the foot of the Langjökull Glacier is an unique glacial highland experience and the guided snowmobile tour that follows is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Ride across the eternally frozen snow and ice fields of one of the biggest glaciers in the world, exploring one of the last true wilderness areas in Europe, and indeed the world.

Relax on the return journey and get dropped-off back at your original departure point at around 7pm.

  • Like many of our other trips, I was disappointed by the scenery in Iceland. Maybe my expectations were too high, but the land is obviously volcanic, rugged and sterile. There is the odd special moment, but not enough to justify the long trip. The snowmobile trip was an experience as I have never tried this before, but it is advertised as an 1 hour trip. Beware, you are on the snowmobile for an hour, but the journey to and from, getting kitted out and the safety briefing took us in excess of four hours.

  • We changed companies after mid day as we did the snowmobile portion of the trip- The tour outfit for that portion was not up too par -Reykjavik sighting seeing9the company we started with was a far more professional company and i would have preferred staying with them The Whole day. The mountaineering companysnowmobile portion were not very nice and the hey had 40 of us on the ride and 2 guides to manage then whole trip not organized and ran late

  • Excellent Tour, the snow mobile experience was amazing an a trip to remeber

  • Amazing experience !!

  • This trip was so worthwhile - we spent just enough time at each spot, everything was super efficient and smooth! I would recommend this to anyone with a free day in Iceland.

  • Awesome fun experience.

  • This trip was really fun and the snowmobile was great. The first stop was a bit dark to see much but it meant that you missed the crowds at the next stop which was really nice. Unfortunately the way that this is set up you miss the waterfall as you change tour guides to the snowmobile people which was a bit disappointing. The snowmobile was a lot of fun though the group was a bit large and meant you usually got stuck behind a slow person sometimes. The views at the top of the glacier were breathtaking and amazing. I would recommend maybe booking these two tours separately so that you can experience the waterfall.
