Itinerary

Please note

Pick up and Drop off: All three tours include pick up and drop off in Reykjavik. Upon booking, choose your pick up location from a drop-down list.

Prerequisites (Snorkeling): To snorkel at Silfra, you need to feel comfortable in the water and be able to swim. Weight limit: 45-120 kg Height limit: 150 cm -200 cm Age Limit: 14 years old minimum. Everyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian. English: It is important that you can both understand and communicate in English in order to participate in the tour.

Glacier Hiking and Ice Climbing: From November 16 to January 31, we won‘t be able to stop at Skogafoss due to limited daylight.

Snowmobiling: 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. If you wish to book a solo snowmobile, but do not have a valid driver’s license then you can book an extra guide to operate your snowmobile for an additional 40.000 ISK.

Your glacier hiking and ice climbing adventure will begin when we pick you up from your chosen location in Reykjavik.

Solheimajokull Glacier is the closest glacier to Reykjavik. Your drive to the base of the glacier will be across Icelandic backcountry and through moss-covered lava fields. On the way there, we will stop at Seljandafoss and Skogafoss Waterfalls, if weather permits. 

Your glacier hike will begin once we arrive at Solheimajokull Glacier car park. Your experienced and certified guide will provide all necessary equipment and brief you on safety precautions. Once on top of a glacier, you’ll be rewarded with fantastic views. The glacier is dotted with deep crevasses, grand ice formations, and towering peaks. Look for breathtaking views of Iceland’s South Coast open up.  After the fun 1-hour glacier hike, you can try out ice climbing (optional).

Lofty ice walls are a great playground for ice climbers. If you’re feeling adventurous, our glacier guide will hang a top rope so you can try out ice climbing. Ice climbing will not only test your mental limits, but also physical capabilities. After the climb, your driver will drop you back at your meeting place in Reykjavik if you’ve chosen a pick-up option. 

Day Highlights
  • Solheimajokull Glacier
  • Glacier Hiking and Ice Climbing
  • Seljandafoss and Skogafoss Waterfalls

The second adventure out of your 3 day tour package in Iceland will begin when we arrive at Gullfoss Cafe. From there, a Super Truck will take you to Langjökull Glacier base. Once there, your certified snowmobile guide will get you suited up and explain the subtleties of riding a snowmobile.  

Zoom past snowy scenes on Iceland’s second-largest glacier. Your ride will last for around an hour, when you can take in all the grandeur of Iceland’s nature. During the ride, the incredible landscape unfolds endless horizon, dotted by snow-capped mountains. You’ll be able to stop for a few minutes to soak in the surrounding landscape and take a few pictures. 

After the exhilarating snowmobile ride, we’ll take you back to Reykjavik.

Start off your snorkeling tour in Silfra with a pick up in Reykjavik. Your trip to Silfra will last for about an hour and will take through spectacular scenery, filled with natural wonders of Thingvellir National Park.

Thingvellir National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site and Silfra Fissure is nestled right in the heart of Thingvellir. Silfra Fissure is the only place in the world where you can snorkel between two tectonic plates. It’s been rated among the top 5 diving sites on Earth. 

Your snorkeling adventure will begin when we arrive at Silfra car park. You’ll be greeted by a certified diving instructor, who will provide you with all necessary snorkeling gear and instruct you on safety precautions.

Silfra might not look like much from the outside, but once you submerge yourself in the water, a whole new world opens up. Incredible underwater rock formations are saturated with shades of turquoise and the water is so clear that you can see for about 328 feet (100 meters). 

After your meditative snorkeling experience, we’ll treat you to cookies and hot chocolate!

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.
