This tour is the perfect combination of adrenaline-pumping fun and rejuvenating relaxation. It begins with a heart-pounding snowmobile ride on a vast glacial expanse of pristine snow and finishes with a relaxing soak in a warm natural hot spring. Both events are part of the iconic Golden Circle route, making it a great addition to any trips that you have already booked. The snowmobile trip begins at the magnificent Gullfoss Waterfall, where we will collect you in a super jeep and take you to our base camp at the foot of the Langjokull Glacier, to get ready for our snowmobiling adventure. Then after an exhilarating hour spent exploring this vast natural wonder, you will head to the Secret Lagoon, in Flúðir, where you can soak in beautifully, temperate, geothermal waters, amidst some truly spectacular natural scenery. What better way to explore some of the most magnificent sights on the Golden Circle than with this amazing self-drive tour?
Meet on location
The meeting point is directly at Gullfoss Café. Please give yourself plenty of time to drive from Reykjavík – there is no way you want to miss this fun adventure.
Remember to bring: Warm and waterproof outdoor clothing, head wear, gloves and sturdy shoes. Bathing suit & towel are also essential. Packed lunch (we will also stop at a diner/restaurant).
Provided: Snowmobile suit, balaclava, gloves and a helmet.
What if I don’t own all of these necessaries?
Don’t worry, you can always rent the necessary items in the booking process.
The price of the tour is for one person when sharing a two-person snowmobile. Please choose the solo ride option when booking in odd numbers. Also, if you want to ride alone on the snowmobile select the “solo on a snowmobile” option. For solo or odd number of bookings, you must book a solo snowmobile for 6.500 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.
Meet on location means travelling to the location of the tour yourself and then meeting our tour guides rather than being picked up and taken to the location.
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.

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.
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 Elding 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 summertime).
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.
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.

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.

We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at the 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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
