Itinerary

Day 1: Reykjavik – Þingvellir National Park – Geysir Geyser – Gullfoss – Langjökull – Reykjavik (approx. 10 hrs)

Summary of The Day

The tour starts with a stop in Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site listing and the birthplace of the oldest existing parliament in the world. This is also where the gigantic tectonic plates of America and Eurasia have pulled apart and the resulting rift valley is right there before your eyes on the shores of Iceland's biggest lake.

The next stop is at Geysir Hot Springs, the home of the one-and-only original geyser and Iceland's most iconic natural attraction. Here the ground trembles and steaming hot water spouts spectacularly skywards from the famous Strokkur Geyser every few minutes.

Afterwards, we will stop for a leisurely walk down to Gullfoss Waterfall, which is an awesome sight to behold. Here a powerful glacial river cascades down 32 meters on two levels and into a narrow canyon with a thunderous roar.

Where the central highlands start, with their uninhabited pristine nature, we will board one of our custom-made Super Trucks that's capable of driving across rough snowy terrain thanks to its enormous tyres. The drive to the snowmobile base camp at the foot of the Langjökull Glacier is an unique Arctic highland experience and the snowmobile tour that follows is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Ride across the eternally frozen snow and ice fields of one of the biggest glaciers in the world on a guided snowmobile tour, exploring one of the last true wilderness areas in Europe and indeed the world.
