From Reykjavik you will then drive off to the famous Golden Circle. 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. 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. 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.
There is no lunch included in this tour, but we will make a stop at Gullfoss Café where it is possible to purchase some lunch before heading to Langjökull glacier.
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 before heading back to Reykjavik.

“Amazing Snowmobile trip!”
This tour was probably our favourite on the trip. Our guide, Asigori(Asi), was absolutely amazing! He is very knowledgeable and responsible, and also very funny. On our way to the Geysir, he explained everything about Iceland, and made the trip even more enjoyable. Although the snowmobiling was a little hard since we had never done so before, all the staff in the base were very kind and constantly check upon on us just on case we get lost. Excellent trip and couldn’t recommend more, especially if you have Asi as your guide!
“Wonderful Golden Circle and Snowmobiling Tour”
As someone who owns a travel business, I was pleased with the level of service and care provided by Arctic Adventures. We were picked up in a Super Jeep and given a wonderful tour of the Golden Circle. We were able to take our time and enjoy the area. Our ride to base camp was fun and the snowmobiling experience was awesome. I would recommend doing the single person supplement and driving the snowmobile for the duration. I have never been on a snowmobile before and this was a wonderful first-time. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. They were also very patient and kind with instructions. Visibility was perfect and views amazing. We had a wonderful guide named Asi who was funny, friendly, and patient.
