  • 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.

  • Langjokull Glacier: Snowmobile & Natural Ice Cave Tour

    2. Langjokull Glacier: Snowmobile & Natural Ice Cave Tour

    On this adventure tour, combine glacier snowmobiling and a natural ice cave visit on Langjokull Glacier. Start by gearing up at the base camp before going over safety features regarding your snowmobile ride. When you take off, head to the glacier to start your adventure. After about a half hour of riding, reach the ice cave. Park the sleds and walk to the cave while taking in your great surroundings. Be sure to take plenty of picture as the ice cave offers outstanding photo opportunities. After visiting the cave, ride back to the base camp before heading to Gullfoss or Reykjavik.

    Very good and enjoyable and good fun, very informative guide Herman, make sure your helmet is tight on your head before you start, my partner had to put a hood up halfway to stop it moving about .

  • Small-Group Golden Circle & Snowmobiling Tour from Reykjavik

    3. Small-Group Golden Circle & Snowmobiling Tour from Reykjavik

    Head to the famous Golden Circle from Reykjavík on this 10-hour small-group tour. Take in some of Iceland's most famous sights, stopping first at historic Thingvellir National Park. The park is a UNESCO site, where forces of history and nature come together. Iceland's first parliament, founded in 930 A.D. is located in the park, as is the magnificent Silfra Fissure, a popular diving site. Stop at the Geysir geothermal area. See bubbling water spurting up to 25 meters in the air. Next on the itinerary is the Gullfoss Waterfall, where water cascades 32 meters into a rugged canyon. Continue to Langjökull Glacier, and spend an hour driving a snowmobile before returning to Reykjavik.

    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. Haffy the golden circle tour guide was amazing, he still took us out even though it was just me and my partner on the tour, it was literally a private tour, such a wonderful day and then the buggying at the end was amazing. Honestly would recommend, you won't be disapointed at all!

  • Langjökull Glacier: Ice Cave and Snowmobile Tour

    4. Langjökull Glacier: Ice Cave and Snowmobile Tour

    Park your car at Gullfoss Café and be stunned by the monster trucks and super jeeps from that await your arrival. Your driver will greet you and then begin your journey to the glacial highlands of Iceland, from Gullfoss to Langjökull glacier. Enjoy the epic scenery on the way. There is a usually impassible road but the massive machinery eats through it, which is an adventure on its own.  Once at the glacier, step out of the monster truck and into the glacier hut to collect snowsuits and other accessories to keep you warm during the snowmobile ride. When suited up, head to the rows of snowmobiles. 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.

Well organised, professional and entertaining from start to finish.

Everything was good. Tour guide very informative and patient.
