  • Small-Group Golden Circle & Snowmobiling Tour from Reykjavik

    2. 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!

  • From Reykjavik: Langjökull Glacier Ice Cave Tour

    3. From Reykjavik: Langjökull Glacier Ice Cave Tour

    Depart Reykjavík early and head to Langjökull Glacier. Upon arrival, marvel at the 953-square-kilometer land of ice (the second largest glacier in Iceland). You will travel aboard a new bus equipped with computer tablets in each seat for your convenience. Make use of the GPS-sensitive in-bus audio guide (available in English, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Japanese, Korean, Chinese Mandarin and German), along with a USB charger and free Wi-Fi. Then, get ready to stand on top of a vast ice-cap and descend into the icy netherworld of a glacier. You will journey to the ice cave aboard a huge, specially-modified 8WD truck. Discover a man-made tunnel of ice in a remote area of the glacier at the very heart of Iceland. Listen as your guide explains how global warming has started to impact the glacial environment. Then, go on an amazing journey deep within the glacier, and see and ...

    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.

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.
