Full description
Your day starts early in Reykjavik, where you board a comfortable bus to the top attractions in Iceland. Enjoy a day of adventure led by a personal host and detailed audio guide in ten languages. Your first stop is Thingvellir National Park, where the oldest parliament in the world was founded and the tectonic plates are pulling apart every day. From Thingvellir, drive through lush lava fields and farmlands until steam rises from the ground at Geysir Geothermal Area. You will have around one hour to take in the beautiful scenery and witness Strokkur erupting a few times. Then, continue to Gullfoss Waterfall, the queen of Icelandic waterfalls. Complete your day with a truck ride up to Langjökull Glacier, the second largest glacier in Europe. Rush off for an unforgettable snowmobile ride on top of the glacier and visit a man-made glacier ice cave.   After walking under the glacier, you will ride your snowmobile back to the warm glacier hut and be taken back to Gullfoss, where you’ll board the bus again and ride back to Reykjavik after a day of amazing adventures.

Great tour in sensational imperial weather. Our guide for the first part of the tour, Jojo, was great, humorous and you could tell the passion with which he does the job. Arrived in Thingvellir Park in the light sunrise was an incredible atmosphere. After a generous half-hour stop, we went on to the Strokkur Geyser, here too Jojo knew how to tell a few little anecdotes. Unfortunately, the paths and groups separated at Godafoss, we took a spectacular bus to the glacier, where the snowmobiles were already waiting. We were fully dressed and warmly wrapped up, and after a short briefing, we went straight to the slopes. Due to the size of the group, a few even had their own snowmobiles and did not have to sit up in pairs. The view from the glacier was sensational. After a short stop for photos and (if necessary) change of driver, we went back. The whole fun lasted about an hour. Overall a successful day tour. I totally recommend it

Great people, wonderful nature. Despite my fear of snowmobiles, I took the plunge thanks to the great guides and it was great. Of course, the buses are unfortunately too narrow for tall people, but it's really worth it. thank you
