This tour combines the widely popular Golden Circle tour with the adventure of a lifetime - a one hour snowmobile ride on Langjökull glacier, Iceland´s second largest glacier. First we stop at Þingvellir National Park which is known for its exceptional beauty and historical importance. Þingvellir is as well a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. The second stop is at the high-temperature geothermal area known as Geysir, with its numerous spouting hot springs. From there we drive to Langjökull where we take a one hour exhilarating snowmobile tour on the vast white snow cap. On our way back to Reykjavík we stop by the stunning Gullfoss waterfall. Tour duration: 09:00 - 19:00
A valid driver's licence is required.
2 persons per vehicle; single person per vehicle at extra cost.
The UNESCO site Þingvellir National Park is geologically and
historically significant. Apart from being the location of the oldest
parliament in the world, Alþingi, which was formed in 930. it is also a place
where you can see the Mid-Atlantic ridge above ground. The Eurasian and
North-American tectonic plates pull the country apart by a couple of
centimetres per year.
Geysir geothermal area is in
South Iceland, near Laugarvatn Lake. The area is named after the biggest, and
now mostly dormant, geyser Geysir and all geysers in the world owe their name
to it. The biggest attraction today is the active Strokkur, which shoots up a
column of water up to 30 metres (98 ft.) into the air every few minutes.
Gullfoss is one of the most
famous waterfalls in Iceland and rightly so. The three-step waterfall is a part
of the glacial river Hvítá and falls into a 62-metre (203 ft.) deep canyon.
From here we drive to Langjökull where we take a one hour exhilarating snowmobile tour on the vast white snowcap.
