What To Expect

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.

Traveler Tips


This is a very good tour, but if your looking to go at your own pace this is not the tour for you.
And all the transferring from one van to the other is valid considering al the different terrain you need to cover.
The guides were lovely, and the trip was well worth it, even in winter.

Really enjoyed this day trip. Our driver/guide Albert was excellent he gave us plenty info throughout the trip. Highlight was the Snowmobile trip. Only negative was waiting on those who were late at each stop.

Great Day!
John_C, Sep 2022
Snowmobiling was something I haven’t done in 30 years and it came back to me quite easily, fortunately. Guide and driver was good but towards the end of the day I was ready to do nothing but sleep.

Completely stunning
John_S, Aug 2022
This trip was incredible, anyone who has given this less than five star is our of their minds. Packing In three sights plus an hour of snowmobiling it is by far the best way to see the wonders of Iceland. It's a long day but there are plenty of stops. The snowmobiling over the glacier is well worth the extra money. Really enjoyed it, made out holiday!

Had a blast!
Daniel_V, Aug 2022
This was a fun day trip filled with tons of background information on the history and landscape. Visited the wonderful sites of the geysir, Gullfoss, Thingvellir National Park, and of course riding snowmobiles on the glacier.
Unforgettable
Tatiana_T, Aug 2022
Absolutely unforgettable experience with snowmobile on the glacier, such fun, Adrenalin and joy! Highly recommend.
Fun but hungry!
Debra_D, Aug 2022
Fun day but moved along too quickly. No time to even eat! Bring snacks! They prep you well for tge cold, but not fun when the snow is slushy.
Amazing trip!
Tamar_W, Jul 2022
Amazing trip, we particularly loved the snowmobiling, whilst also really enjoyed exploring other extraordinary places in the country. Really worth doing!
Excellent day trip from Reykjavik
Allison_L, Jul 2022
The tour was very well organized and our guide was very knowledgeable - we learned a lot about Iceland, its history and geography. There was plenty of time at each stop to explore. The highlight was the snowmobiling experience. It was incredible to be out on the glacier - although I am not certain if we were really out there for an hour. I would say it was more like 40 minutes of actual time on the glacier. But it was thrilling regardless! Would definitely recommend to others. We appreciated the drop off at the cruise port - we just wished there was a pickup there as well - although it was an east taxi ride to the BSI bus Terminal.
Otherworldly Glacier Experience

Epic Adventure
Jennifer_G, Jul 2022
A wonderful experience! Our driver was very knowledgeable and told us history of Iceland on our drive! Each stop at geysir, gullfoss and glacier was fantastic! I only wish we had more time at the gullfoss waterfall…20 min wasn’t enough.

Amazing
Matt_S, Jul 2022
The tour itself was amazing. Our guide 'Frosty' was great and very knowledgeable. Besides being very friendly, during the drive to each location, he gave us tons of information about the history and geography of the region and Iceland itself. The Snowmobiling part of the tour was also an amazing experience and a highlight of our trip. We cannot recommend this more.
Long day but we’ll worth it
Michael_W, Jun 2022

Spectacular!

Great excursion! Beautiful tour of the Golden Circle with a snowmobile ride on the glacier as the grand finale!! Spectacular!
Great family experience
joseph_w, Jun 2022
An amazing experience on a snowmobile which you can share with your family. The family loved it, definitely one of the best parts of our entire trip to Iceland. If you do the Golden Circle tour top it off with the snowmobile.
Beautiful and amazing
