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.

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!

Remember to bring: Warm outdoor clothing, thermal underwear,  waterproof jacket and pants, headwear and winter/snow gloves. Good hiking shoes are also highly recommended.

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

A standard booking is for 2 people sharing 1 snowmobile.

If you wish to have a solo snowmobile or your group is an odd number please choose the number of solo participants with the option "participants - solo on a snowmobile" when making your booking.

A valid drivers license is required to operate a snowmobile.

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.

We reserve the right to alter the itinerary according to weather and road conditions. Our Super Jeeps seat 9 – 16 persons so our Safaris are always a small group experience!

This is all included in the price of the tour.

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.

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.
