Your hotel or guesthouse in Reykjavik
The Golden Circle is a 300km round trip which showcases the power and beauty of Iceland’s natural environment. You will visit an active Geysir, experience the ferocity of the Gulfoss waterfall and visit Þingvellir National Park which is steeped in both history and beauty.
Your Golden Circle Tour is conducted in a Jeep which allows you to get closer to the rough landscape of Iceland.
After your Golden Circle adventure you will have the chance to go snowmobiling over a glacial plain!
You will be picked up in a bus from your hotel or guesthouse in Reykjavik for this Golden Circle Jeep and snowmobile tour. Drive to your jeep, where you’ll meet up with an English-speaking guide who will provide background and texture to the sights along the way.
Set off by jeep for Þingvellir National Park, which is one of Iceland’s most significant historical sites. It was here that the country’s first parliament was founded in 930 AD, making it the oldest known Parliament in the world.
Head along mountain tracks toward the world-renowned geothermal area around Geysir hot spring, where a column of water thrusts upward to a height of 180 feet.
Continue to Gullfoss waterfall, where the wide Hvita River plunges furiously over a natural staircase of stones. When one first approaches the falls, the crevice is obscured from view, giving the appearance of a raging river that simply vanishes into the earth. You inch so close to the edge of the falls that you’ll be able to feel the spray of the cataract on your face.
Kick the action into higher gear with a snowmobiling tour on Langjökull, Iceland’s second largest glacier (It is essential to present a valid driving license in order to drive a snowmobile).
On your way back to Reykjavik pass by the village of Hveragerði, where rows of greenhouses are heated by volcanic hot springs.
You will be dropped back at your hotel in Reykjavik at tour’s end.
