Golden Circle Glacier Ride - Super Jeep and Snowmobiling
Available all year round
Summer Edition / Winter Edition
A super jeep Golden Circle in combination with snowmobiling allows visitors to get in touch with some of Iceland’s most famous and exciting natural phenomena. We'll begin the tour visiting the sights which make the Golden Circle tour. Our first stop is at the Þingvellir National Park 40 min due east of the city. Þingvellir is one of Iceland’s most historic sites as it was here that Iceland’s first parliament was founded in the year 930 AD. From Þingvellir we head along gravel tracks toward the world-renowned geothermal area around the Geysir hot spring. This is the one spouting hot spring that all such phenomena on Earth are named after. From there we continue on to Gullfoss (“the Golden waterfall”) where your proximity to its edge is so close you can feel the spray of the glacial water on your face. Next we kick the action into higher gear to get even closer to Iceland’s nature and go for a snowmobiling tour on Langjökull, Iceland’s second largest glacier.
Please note that snowmobiling is extremely dependent on weather and snow conditions. We reserve the right to alter the itinerary according to weather and road conditions. If the whole tour gets cancelled due to weather or other unforseen reasons you'll get a full refund. If only the snowmobiling part of the tour gets cancelled due to sudden changes in weather / weatherforecase or other unforseen reasons you'll get 6.500 ISK refunded.
