Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet at the BSI Bus Terminal, where you’ll board a climate-controlled vehicle destined for your first stop—the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park.

Explore the site in your vehicle, stopping to capture photographs of the park’s striking landscapes and listening to history-rich commentary that dates back to 93 AD. Then, proceed to a geothermal area named Geysir Geyser to watch powerful streams of water emerge from the earth’s molten core.

From here, you’ll travel to the Langjökull glacier to embark on a snowmobile adventure. Before boarding your vehicle, receive a detailed safety briefing from your instructor and don the necessary protective equipment. Two to a snowmobile, you’ll ascend to the glacier’s summit and enjoy panoramic views of Iceland’s striking scenery.

Exhilarated, return to your vehicle and make your final stop at Gullfloss Waterfall, a staggering waterfall originating from a glacial lake. Capture sufficient photographs of the natural wonder and then relax during the journey back to your original departure point in Reykjavik.

The best part of our trip!

This was by far the highlight of our entire trip to Iceland! We got a wonderful clear day, we set off on a large coach bus that has a restroom. Very comfortable and enough room for us to each have 2 seats. We stopped at your typical Golden circle stops and got to see everything. The guide was wonderful and very informative. Almost every stop had bathroom facilities as well as food. We were able to get a hot lunch as well. The highlight by far is the snowmobiling. We got off the bus and onto a “tiny bus” which was a military grade bus with tires that came up about 5 feet, and made our way up the glacier. Half we up we switched to an ever larger bus that took us to basecamp. At basecamp we suited up (wear warm but thin baselayers) and then got a tutorial in snowmobiling. You ride them in pairs, and switch driving half way through. Afterwards we went back to basecamp and had hot cocoa and biscuits in a warm heated lodge before heading down the mountain. It was a once in a lifetime experience that we’ll be telling our kids about one day!

Although the weather could be described as a whiteout, the whole experience from the tour in the huge Ford off road vehicle to the snowmobiling was great. Our guide was knowledgeable and very friendly.

So when I was booking I thought “it’s a lot of money for an excursion”. Well... it was worth every penny. You see Iceland in the format nature intended... raw and cold. Snowmobiles were brilliant and the waterfall was stunning - if not perishingly cold. Would recommend.

Great tour, the guide was very knowledgeable. I was a little disappointed with the time we spent at the waterfall on the way to the snowmobiles but we got 30 minutes there on the return journey when it was much less busy. The snow mobiles are an amazing experience that i would recommend to anyone.

Great trip. Weather wasn’t great (rain) but we made the most of it. Driver Albert was brilliant . Arrived back at around 19:30pm. Long day but worth while. Big tip: If it’s raining bring an umbrella as we got drenched watching the Geysir and waterfall and were then wet and cold before even getting to the glacier 😊 And bring bag and spare clothes and food onto the snowmobile bus as your there a good few hours !

Booked the tour and it was cancelled both days. I had to ring the company to re-schedule for the next day. Staff were unhelpful on the call and didnt offer any other similar tours. I've now requested a refund and have to wait nearly a week to get my money back.

The guides were lovely, and the trip was well worth it, even in winter. when the sunlight is sparse. We got so much information about local history, and our guides were well humoured, fun, and caring. Thank you all so much for a fantastic trip from a widow and her young boy who needed something fantastic at Christmas! We will see you next year!

Although it was interesting, but feel that for the price charged for this trip, each individual should be given a solo snow mobile

This was the perfect experience! From the cool vehicle to the amazing tour guide this trip couldn’t be better. The tour guide adjusted the stopping points to make the best adventure for us. He told us stories along the way. He even did a little off reading that the kids loved. I highly recommend skipping the tour busses and book this version of the golden circle
