Snowmobile Adventure | Golden Circle and Langjokull Snowmobiling

This one-day tour is the very best way to combine the most popular sites in Iceland with an exciting activity; snowmobiling.

The first stop on this super jeep tour is at Þingvellir national park, the birthplace of Icelandic democracy and where the World's first parliament met in the summer of 930 AD. A main feature of Thingvellir is the Almannagjá Gorge, one of the few places anywhere you can witness, on dry land, the effect of the European and American tectonic plates drifting apart.

Then it's on to Geysir, which has given its name to spouting hot springs. The giant Geysir Strokkur will not fail to impress you so have your camera at the ready for when it blows, which it does every few minutes. Other geothermal features include fumaroles, mud pools and other smaller geysers as well as the large but dormant Geysir.

Before heading into the southern highlands, we visit another of our iconic and impressive natural features, Gullfoss. It goes by the name the Golden waterfall and carries the meltwater from Langjökull glacier down Hvítá river. The waterfall has distinct curves and thus adding drama to the powerful display.

You can grab something to eat at either Gullfoss or Geysir café before we drive on the mountain road Kjölur, up to the snowmobile site on Langjökull, the second largest glacier in Iceland. This route offers fascinating glimpses of nature's majesty.

Once on site, you will be kitted out with an insulated all-in-one jumpsuit, giant mittens and safety helmet, then given clear and precise instructions for handling these powerful machines. Led by the experienced mountain guide, the snowmobiles shoot off in single file for an hour of often high-speed driving along the carefully chosen route over the glacier.

The return journey down from the glacier provides further unmissable photo opportunities on this action-packed day.
