Begin with morning pickup from your Reykjavik hotel. Bring your bathing suit and towel if you can, and meet your guide and small group of no more than 10.
Then, settle inside your super truck, whose large tires are designed to negotiate challenging terrain. Relax into your spacious seat and enjoy the onboard WiFi and views as you set off into Iceland’s lava-sculpted countryside.
Along the way, listen as your driver-guide shares facts about the country’s volcanic geology, including background on the Langjökull glacier. Drive through the Geysir hot springs area, seeing the mud pools and water spouts from your window, and on arrival at Langjökull, don your provided thermal coverall, hat, gloves, and helmet.
Once you’re ready, hop on your 2-person snowmobile, and after driving and riding instructions, set off on your expedition. Follow your guide vehicle across the spectacular glacial landscapes, admiring the vast ice expanses around you.
Pick up speed as your confidence builds, and midway through, make a quick stop to take photos of the glacial wonderland and swap driving or passenger positions with the second person on your snowmobile.
After your ride, reboard your truck and head to one of south Iceland’s most popular restaurants for lunch. Savor the Icelandic dishes, which vary from season to season, but which are always delicious and energy-boosting.
Next, head for the village of Flúðir and visit the Secret Lagoon, a natural thermal spring surrounded by otherworldly scenery. Change into your bathing suit, or hire a towel and bathing suit here (own expense), and relax with a restorative soak in the warm, steam-clouded waters.
Finally, return to Reykjavik by super truck, where your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.
