Feel the freedom on top of a glacier with a one-hour snowmobile ride on Langjökull glacier and take the adventure of a lifetime on the popular Golden Circle tour.
Our guide to Golden Circle & Glacier Snowmobiling
This tour combines the hugely popular Golden Circle tour with the adventure of a lifetime - a one-hour snowmobile ride on Langjökull glacier, Iceland's second-largest glacier!
First stop is at Þingvellir National Park, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site which is known for its exceptional beauty and historical importance.
After exploring a selection of the park's most picturesque sites, the next stop is a high-temperature geothermal area known as Geysir which boasts numerous springs spouting hot water.
From there you will drive to Langjökull for the highlight of the itinerary - an exhilarating 1-hour snowmobile tour on the stunning, vast white snowcap.
Finally, on the way back to Reykjavík the tour makes a quick stop at the stunning Gullfoss waterfall.
9:00am, with hotel pick-ups from approximately 30 minutes prior to that time.
