See the most extreme sights of the Golden Circle and visit a newly discovered natural ice cave on this exciting super truck tour. Watch an erupting geyser and a cascading waterfall before driving up to Langjökull glacier to enter an authentic ice cave. Those wanting to see the best Iceland has to offer, should not miss this tour.

You'll be picked up in Reykjavík by a large and custom super truck, built to handle the rough drive up a glacier. In the limited daylight of the morning, you'll be driven all the way to Geysir geothermal area. There, you will get a chance to quickly explore the power of natural geothermal energy as you walk among the bubbling mud pools and steaming fumaroles, and watch as the geyser Strokkur erupts in a large water column every 5-10 minutes.

Next stop is at Gullfoss waterfall, mostly known for its sheer beauty as it tumbles down in two tiers into an ancient canyon. The scenery here is a stark contrast from the warm geothermal area, and you will feel the cold mist from the waterfall on your face, as you approach it.

Make sure to grab something to eat at either Geysir or Gullfoss, or bring a packed lunch, before the next leg of the tour, as the drive to Langjökull glacier can be a long and slow one if conditions are harsh. This it is the ultimate super truck adventure! You will be driven through the snow and up steep glacier hills before you reach the ice cave.

The ice cave was only discovered recently, under the stunning hills of Jarlhettur mountain ridge. The ice cave was likely formed by a sub-glacial river, eroding through the ice, creating this dome-like space. Once the cave emptied of all its water, it became accessible for people to enter.

From inside the ice cave, you can really see all the colours a glacier can offer. Some of the walls are lined with zebra-like stripes, where you can see the white of packed snow, contrasting against the black of past volcanic eruptions. In other areas of the ice cave, you can see very pure and clear blue ice and even a frozen waterfall. Lights have been placed strategically around the cave to make the experience even better for you.

After some time in the cave, it is time to drive back to Reykjavík. If time and daylight allow; you will make a quick stop at Þingvellir National Park. This UNESCO world heritage site is one of the few places in the world where the tectonic plates and the rifts between them are visible.

So don't wait! Get the ultimate Icelandic experience with this fantastic day tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
