  • From Reykjavik: Golden Circle and Glacier Snowmobiling

    1. From Reykjavik: Golden Circle and Glacier Snowmobiling

    Board the bus at the BSI Bus Terminal and drive off to experience the different geothermal landscapes of Iceland's legendary Golden Circle. Stop at Þingvellir National Park, known for its exceptional beauty and historical importance as the site of the world's first parliaments. Continue into the hot springs area of Geysir, before driving to Langjökull to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime adventure activity! Take control of a snowmobile – or travel as a passenger – to explore the vast white ice cap of Langjökull for an hour. Make your way back to Reykjavík via the spectacular Gullfoss Waterfall and gaze in wonder as the Hvítá River thunders into a 32-meter deep canyon.

    It was a great trip but I think the time traveling should be explained in the brief as this is quite a lot of the time out....also the actual time you get on the snowmobile was very misleading. We had half that time and the experience was very disappointing. It should explain that you literally go up and around in a circle following everyone which was very un impressive and not worthy at all of the cost of this. Next time I would probably not bother doing the snow mobiling as I felt it wasn’t a true experience of what it was Described as.

    The snowmobiling was cancelled because of bad weather, we were contacted the day before by customer services who were so helpful and lovely, and were given the choice to do buggying instead, which we agreed to.

    Wow, Wow, Wow! I highly recommend this tour. It was so fun! I highly recommend going. The trucks you ride in to get to the cave is unique and fun to ride in. The guides do a nice job of telling information about the cave, and of answering questions. They provide you with clamp-ons, and a hiking pole if needed. So, you feel comfortable walking on the ice. It is a unique and memorable way to spend the day.

The guide will go through the details of how to operate the snowmobile, which is quite easy. After the introduction, select your snowmobile and wait for the guide to signal to go.  Ride along the glacier with good visibility to emerge in epic surroundings of lava formed rock mountains. A total...

    First I want to say, when booking on this website, be sure to notice that you can change the currency rate on a tab in the upper corner, I did not see this and was charged more than expected. Luckily, I was able to speak with the customer service team and they refunded me based on my currency that I had thought I was paying, which was very good of them and much appreciated. The experience was amazing! We went in December and had a great weather day, although windy and chilly but great day for a ride. You are given zip up suits, gloves and a helmet. The cons: The staff wasn’t the friendliest and wish we could have snowmobiled a little more off course, but I understand the safety of it. The ice cave was cool but small so you don’t spend much time in there. Overall, it was a lot of fun and an amazing experience, how many people can say They snowmobiled on a glacier?!!

Fantastic day from start to finish. Peter (our tour guide) was very knowledgeable and made us feel extremely safe while driving on unclear roads. His was I obviously was very passionate about Iceland and pointed out many aspects of interest whilst transporting us to each stop of our golden circle and snowmobiling tour. Would definitely recommend and would rebook the same tour if we ever get a chance to come back in the future!!

Really good day out, well organised and would recommend anyone travelling that wants to see the main parts of the golden circle. Snowmobiling was the best part for us. Well worth the money.

Excellent is all I will say. Such an amazing place and experience. This is a must

Everything was good. Tour guide very informative and patient.
