Full description
Travel the Golden Circle of Iceland by Jeep and see some of the nation’s most spectacular phenomenon. Depart from Reykjavik and drive to Thingvellir National Park, where Iceland’s ancient parliament was situated.

Hike through the area to experience the dramatic mid-Atlantic ridge, before heading eastbound on the mountain road to Lyngdalsheiði. Your reward will be sublime views of the lava fields on the hills above Laugarvatn.

As you drive to Haukadalur, look out for the famous Strokkur Geyser, which erupts every 5 to 7 minutes, spewing boiling water into the air to heights of 80 to 100 feet (25 to 30 meters). Explore the hot springs, before heading up to the magnificent cascades of Gullfoss Waterfall, plummeting into the white Hvita River along with glacial water.

Drive to the start of the Kjölur mountain road. You will be approaching Iceland’s second largest glacier, Langjökull, where you can take optional activities, such as quad bike and snowmobile rides, depending on weather conditions and the time of year.

In the afternoon, make your way through the agricultural headland of southwest Iceland, through small settlements. Visit the hot springs town of Hveragerði if there’s time, before reaching Hellisheiði Plateau, one final wonder of Mother Nature on the way back to Reykjavik.
