Þingvellir – Geysir – Gullfoss – Langjökull
This one-day tour is the very best way to combine the most popular sites in Iceland with an exciting activity – snowmobiling. The first stop on this Super jeep tour is at Thingvellir national park, the birthplace of Icelandic democracy and where the World’s first parliament met in the summer of 930AD. A main feature of Thingvellir is the Almannagjá Gorge, one of the few places anywhere on dry land where we can witness the effect of the European and American tectonic plates drifting apart.
Then it’s on to Geysir, which has given its name to spouting hot springs. The giant geysir Strokkur will not fail to impress you, have your camera at the ready for when it blows, which it does every few minutes. Before heading into the southern highlands we visit another of our iconic and impressive natural features, Gullfoss. It goes by the name the golden waterfall and carries the meltwaters of the Langjökull glacier, which is our next destination.
The drive up to the snowmobile site on Langjökull, the second largest glacier in Iceland, is an unforgettable experience, offering fascinating glimpses of nature´s majesty. Once on site, you will be kitted out with an insulated all-in-one jump-suit, giant mittens and safety helmet, then given clear and precise instructions for handling these powerful machines. Led by the experienced mountain guide, the snowmobiles shoot off in single file for an hour of often high-speed driving along the carefully chosen route over the glacier. The return journey down from the glacier provides further unmissable photo opportunities on this action-packed day.
Please bring warm clothes, a camera and some snacks for the ride. The driver will be stopping at service stations should you wish to purchase something there.
