Full description
Depart Reykjavík early to catch the morning sun, traveling by new bus equipped with computer tablets in each seat. Use the GPS-sensitive, in-bus audio guide (available in 10 languages) to learn more about the sights you will see, and stay connected with the on-board USB chargers and free Wi-Fi. Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Þingvellir National Park, birthplace of the longest-running parliament in the world. Discover where the great continental plates of America and Eurasia have dramatically pulled apart to create a rift valley, clearly visible on the shores of Iceland´s biggest lake. Continue to Geysir Hot Springs to discover the home of the original geyser. Experience the trembling ground and see the super-heated water erupt skywards from the spouting Strokkur geyser every few minutes. Then, take a leisurely walk down to Gullfoss Waterfall. Hear the thundering roar of the glacial Hvítá River as it cascades down 32 meters on 2 levels into a narrow canyon. Marvel at the pristine nature of the central highlands aboard a custom-made super truck. They can drive across the rough, snowy terrain thanks to their enormous tires. Drive to the snowmobile base camp at the foot of Langjökull Glacier. Then, ride across the eternally-frozen snow and ice fields of one of the biggest glaciers in the world on a guided snowmobile tour. Experience one of the last true wilderness areas in Europe, and indeed the world!

    Amazing experience, definitely worth doing. Only thing is that the details on this site are not very clear as this is 1 hour snowmobiling. The rest is a lot of driving on a coach to get to locations and a couple of sites in between but majority of this was travelling on a coach. Still amazing and worth doing if you’re happy to spend the cash.

    The day from beginning to end was a blast. Great tour guides who kept chatting to the coach passengers all day, making us laugh throughout. The coach itself was lovely too. The sights were amazing, given enough time to see and take in each. We were so lucky with the weather, sunshine all day.

    Magical experience. A long day but every minute was worth it. Getting a balaclava for your face when on snowmobile is a good idea as the wind can be extremely cold against your face. Also good idea to bring a packed lunch or snacks for the bus as a lot of time is spent traveling.
