From Reykjavik you will then drive off to the famous Golden Circle on our Super Jeep which will be our ride of the day. This tour allows visitors to get in touch with some of Iceland’s most famous and exciting natural phenomena. Your first stop for the day will be at Þingvellir National Park, 40 min east of the city. Þingvellir is one of Iceland’s most historic sites as it was here that Iceland’s first parliament, Althingi was founded in the year 930 AD. Þingvellir or like some like to call it Pingvellir is also where the tectonic plates meet so beautifully and you can jump in between them. Þingvellir is where the softness and roughness of Icelandic nature live in perfect harmony with waterfalls, streams, and lakes surround this extraordinary place.

From Þingvellir you will then head to the world-renowned geothermal area around Geysir hot spring where you can witness gurgling bubbling water burst up to 25 meters high. The area is covered in numerous hot springs, some active others not. The area is smoke filled and mysterious but exciting at the same time.  Strokkur is now the main number of the show as it bursts every 4 to 10 minutes. He is the baby brother of Geysir but no lesser and you are in for quite the spectacle!

From Geysir, you will continue on to Gullfoss, “the Golden waterfall”. Gullfoss is a great sight and a perfect photo spot with water rushing down three steps of lava layers exhibiting breathtaking power and grandeur. This is the final stop of the Golden Circle but definitely not of the day.

No lunch is included in the tour but at Gullfoss café we will fill up our energy for the adventures ahead. Gullfoss café offers a wide variety of lunch options for you to purchase but some prefer to pack a lunch themselves. It’s up to you.

Next up, you kick the action into a higher gear and go for a 1 hour snowmobiling ride on Langjökull, Iceland’s second largest glacier. Our Super jeep has no problem reaching the glacier camp on Langjökull and the views whilst getting there are amazing. Our snowmobile guides will welcome you, give a briefing and proper gear for the snowmobiling. Once you are all suited up there is nothing left to do than to step onto your snowmobile and follow your guide on an hour’s glacier expedition. To explore a glacier is an enchanting experience on its own but to do it on a snowmobile is something else!

After the ride of a lifetime, we will join again at the glacier camp before jumping into our Super Jeep again and starting our scenic drive back to Reykjavík.

This tour offers the adventure of a lifetime in just one day. Sign up and do something you have never experienced before!

Pick-up: Pick up starts at 8:30 a.m. You will be picked up at your selected location in Reykjavik. Please note, that the pick up can take up to 30 min.
Available pick-up points: Arctic Adventures’s pick-up list.

Remember to bring: Warm outdoor clothing, thermal underwear,  waterproof jacket and pants, headwear and winter/snow gloves. Good hiking shoes are highly recommended. We recommend that you bring a packed lunch along as well.

Good to know: The price of the tour is based on two people sharing one snowmobile. If you are a solo traveler or prefer to have your own snowmobile then you can of course upgrade to a solo snowmobile for additional 6000 ISK per person.

Please note

The price of the tour is for one person when sharing a two-person snowmobile. For solo or odd number of bookings you must book a solo snowmobile for 6.000 ISK extra.

If you wish to have a solo snowmobile but do not have a valid drivers license then you can book an extra guide to operate your snowmobile for an additional 40.000 ISK. Please contact our sales desk for further information and booking.

How is it best to be ready for a pick-up for a tour with Arctic Adventures?

This is a great question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated. This is because you may well be the first pick up of the day. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.

Here you should wait for your guide.

Have your email and phone number listed with us so we can contact you if we run into any trouble finding you.

Can I drink alcohol before or during Arctic Adventures tours?

Before and during activities on the multi-day tours consumption of alcohol is prohibited. If we suspect that a participant is intoxicated, we will prohibit them from joining the activity.

After the activities of the day are finished, you are welcome to have a drink and relax.

Do you offer any family friendly tours, for younger children?

Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Special Tours, has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summer time).

Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs. Most of our jeep tours are also suitable for children over the age of 6 years old. If you would like a nice and relaxing experience we would also recommend the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon tour.

Can the itinerary for the tour change?

Your safety is our number one priority! Keeping this in mind, Arctic Adventures reserves the right to adjust the itinerary and/or take different routes depending on conditions. Please read more information in our cancellation policy.

Is there a guide on each Arctic Adventures tour?

Yes, there is a specially trained and certified guide on each of our tours. The only exception to this is for our self-drive tours.

All of our tours are guided in English.

Can the guide advise if I am eligible for rescheduling the tour and/or a refund?

No, for all your questions and concerns you would need to contact our customer service.

What type of power outlets are used in Iceland? Do I need to bring an adapter?

The standard in Iceland is 230V and 50Hz and we use F-type power sockets and plugs, so you might have to bring an adaptor if you are visiting from UK, USA, Canada or other countries using a different voltage, Hz or plugs.

How are the tours rated in terms of difficulty?

Our tours are split into four different categories that help participants to understand what to expect from the tour. The categories are Easy, Moderate, Challenging and Demanding. Each tour is rated making it easier to find tours that suit you.

For further information about the difficulty ratings and descriptions.

 

How does carbon offsetting work?

We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at time of booking. The Kolviður Fund is the oldest, most respected carbon offsetting program in Iceland. With your support, one tree will be planted in special Kolviður forests in Iceland to carbon offset your tour with us. Kolviður forests are strategically planted to absorb the maximum amount of CO2 and the forests are protected for a minimum of 60 years. During their lifetime the trees absorb carbon and store it in their root system, trunk and branches. Trees also prevent soil erosion and maintain storage of carbon in the soil.

If I have never driven a snowmobile before, can I still participate?

You do not need previous snowmobile driving experience. Your guide will provide easy to follow operating instructions.

However, you do need a valid Driving License if you intend to drive. If there are two of you, only one of you needs to bring a Driving License but if you both bring one, each of you can take a turn at driving.

Can you go on a snowmobiling tour in the summertime in Iceland?

Yes, you can. The plus side to being a cold country is that our glaciers are here all year around and we can go snowmobiling in every season.

Are there any weight restrictions for the snowmobiling tours?

We don’t exactly have a weight restriction but participants need to be able to fit in our winter overalls. The largest size we have is 5XL. As for the physical level, the tour is listed at the level moderate and anyone in average physical condition should be able to complete the tour without any trouble.

Are their any places to use the toilet at the glacier snowmobiling base camp?

Yes, we have toilets at the base camp where the tour starts that you are more than welcome to use before and after. Unfortunately we cannot offer any bathroom breaks during the tour itself.

What clothing is provided for the snowmobile ride on Langjokull glacier?

We provide you with an overall, a balaclava, goggles, gloves and a helmet. This Equipment is all included in the price of the tour.

What do I need to bring for my snowmobiling ride on Langjokull glacier?

First and foremost warm clothing.

Upper body: Thermal shirt and a fleece or a thick sweater over.

Lower body: Warm pants.
If you get easily cold, also thermals.

Shoes: It’s best to wear boots as it’s pretty cold on the glacier and they can get wet.

NOTE: You need to bring a lunch or some snacks. Lunch is not included in the tour.

I am traveling by myself, do I need to pay the single ride supplement?

Yes, if traveling solo you will need to purchase the single ride extra.

Is there an age limit to go snowmobiling on Langjokull glacier?

Yes, there is, safety is always our number one priority and after looking closely into this the age limit was set to 8 years, of course in company with a guardian.

I'm pregnant, am I able to participate in one of your snowmobile tours?

Due to safety reasons, we do not recommend women that are already 3 months pregnant to participate in our snowmobile tours.

"Excellent day" | 5 stars By Kara Thorpe 20/03/2019
James was our tour guide and is a really nice guy to get along with. He talked about what we were seeing and allowed us plenty of time at each site to take in the views. We enjoyed the whole tour from start to finish. Thank you Arctic Adventures!
"Amazing experiences!" | 5 stars By Zoe Frantzi 12/03/2019
We had two tours with Arctic Adventures: Golden Circle, Super Truck & Snowmobiling and Into the Glacier. We loved both tours! The tour guides were friendly, fun and very knowledgeable. Excellent experiences and we wouldn't have gotten to see Iceland that well without them! BIG thanks to Gunnar & Orla, our guides. Amazing views on both tours. Would definitely recommend these tours to anyone traveling around Iceland.
"Golden Circle snow mobile" | 5 stars By Andrew 27/02/2019
Had a great time; beautiful sights, a lot of fun snowmobiling and terrific guides
"Just brilliant!" | 5 stars By Maggie Collins 14/02/2019
We booked two tours with Arctic Adventures - the Golden Circle with Snowmobiling in a cool Supertruck and the Northern Lights turn in an even cooler Suoer Jeep. Both Simon Thor (Golden Circle) and Gunner (Northern Lights) were very funny and knowledgeable! We had a fantastic experience on both trips and the lights performed beautifully for us, cannot recommend this Company highly enough for you!
"Small Group, Super Jeep, Golden Circle & Snowmobiling Tour" | 5 stars By Judith Williamson 08/02/2019
The whole trip from start to finish was very well organized, our guide John was very informative and helpful in every way, we were pleased we chose the small group tour in the Super Jeep as we had both John and the Jeep from start to finish, we were picked up and dropped off at the hotel. The Jeep could go places other vehicles couldn't and this was a great experience in itself. We had plenty of time at each stop to enjoy the sights and experiences, the snowmobiling on the Glacier was a wonderful way to finish the trip off. We booked this trip online from the UK and the whole process was easy and contact the company prior to the trip was also very good.
"Golden Circle, Supertruck and Snowmobile" | 5 stars By stuart weaver 30/01/2019
"As a group of 4, we had the most fantastic tour. The Super Truck was excellent giving a small sized tour group. Great commentary from the driver, giving interesting and unusual Icelandic facts. The tour scenery was beautiful and as enjoyable as the scheduled stops. The journey to the snowmobile base camp in our Super Truck was excellent. With clear blue skies, we had the very best snowmobile trek on the glacier. This Arctic Adventures tour was the highlight of our holiday in Iceland"
"Great Adventure tour" | 5 stars By Roy Swaby 18/01/2019
"The Golden Circle, Supertruck Snowmobiling tour was a great experience had by all of my colleagues. Although the weather wasn't in our favor on the day, the site of the Gullfoss waterfall was spectacular and the snowmobiling was a pure adrenaline rush. An experience I would definitely recommend, and the team guides were first class and looked after each and every one of our group."
"Amazing experience" | 5 stars By Daniella Mallinick 01/01/2019
We did two tours with Arctic Adventures. Both were top notch. The guide for the golden circle and snowmobiling tour was knowledgeable and friendly and the balance between talking and quiet was entirely appropriate throughout the day. The amount of time at each stop was spot on and the snowmobiling was definitely the highlight of the day. Equipment was great and instructions clear - all of this led to an unforgettable experience that we would highly recommend to others. Our eight-year-old son loved the snowmobiling but was also captivated by the other stops on the tour.
"Best trip ever" | 5 stars By Jamie 22/12/2018
This trip is amazing the staff are great and make a great trip even better...
"Epic Day In Icleland" | 5 stars By Thea 15/12/2018
"We had the most incredible day with Arni our guide, visiting the Golden Circle and the highlight of the day - snowmobiling on the glacier. From the moment we were picked up on the ph so cool monster truck, till we were dropped off at the end of the day, we had a fantastic time. Arni was awesome and we learned so much about Iceland and Icelandic culture. All of the sights were breathtaking and there was plenty of time to see everything. We had a beautiful sunny day and watching the sun as it was setting on the glacier was the most stunning thing I have ever seen. It’s one of the best trips I have ever been on in my life. I wouldn’t hesitate to rebook other tours with Arctic Adventures and hope to return again - for more fun with you guys!"
"Great experience" | 5 stars By Ailene 12/12/2018
Being my first time in Iceland the experience with Arctic Adventures was an unforgettable one. I had a great time on the entire tour. The place in itself is magnificent but in contrast with the cold weather during winter, our guide/driver Marty is very warm, jolly and accommodating. She rocks and she’s one of the best guides I had ever met. There was a slight error/misunderstanding on the tour that I booked but it turned to be a blessing in disguise because of Marty’s help. Will definitely go back to Iceland and would definitely recommend Arctic Adventures.
"Golden Circle/Snowmobiling" | 5 stars By William Clark 11/12/2018
This was an outstanding experience. I would like to make special mention of our tour guide. Mardis was not only an excellent guide. Her constant smile and infectious laugh only added to the experience. She was also very knowledgeable about the geographical sights we were seeing. Thanks for providing a great experience and memory of Iceland
"Tour was well organized..." | 5 stars By Robert Abrams 12/10/2018
