  • From Reykjavik: Golden Circle and Glacier Snowmobiling

    1. From Reykjavik: Golden Circle and Glacier Snowmobiling

    Board the bus at the BSI Bus Terminal and drive off to experience the different geothermal landscapes of Iceland's legendary Golden Circle. Stop at Þingvellir National Park, known for its exceptional beauty and historical importance as the site of the world's first parliaments. Continue into the hot springs area of Geysir, before driving to Langjökull to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime adventure activity! Take control of a snowmobile – or travel as a passenger – to explore the vast white ice cap of Langjökull for an hour. Make your way back to Reykjavík via the spectacular Gullfoss Waterfall and gaze in wonder as the Hvítá River thunders into a 32-meter deep canyon.

    It was a great trip but I think the time traveling should be explained in the brief as this is quite a lot of the time out....also the actual time you get on the snowmobile was very misleading. We had half that time and the experience was very disappointing. It should explain that you literally go up and around in a circle following everyone which was very un impressive and not worthy at all of the cost of this. Next time I would probably not bother doing the snow mobiling as I felt it wasn’t a true experience of what it was Described as.

  • From Reykjavik: Hot Spring, Ice Cave & Snowmobile Tour

    3. From Reykjavik: Hot Spring, Ice Cave & Snowmobile Tour

    Driving through the Geysir Hot Spring area with its boiling mud pits and spouting hot springs, you will head straight toward Langjökull Glacier for a snowmobile tour. The surrounding snowfields will take your breath away while you enjoy the thrill of dashing across Europe’s second largest glacier. Continue to a glacial ice cave, going over 300 feet deep into the ancient ice. Marvel at the layers of ash from past volcanic eruptions. For your last stop of the day tour in Iceland, be taken near the small village of Flúðir. Ease into a secret outdoor lagoon, a natural hot spring, for a luxurious bath to soothe all your cares away.

    Snow mobile was a lot of fun. We did not get to go to the ice cave. Not really an explanation of why, the guide said people were checking it out and we never heard anymore. The secret lagoon was good, nice and warm. Very crowded for a winter's afternoon.

    Our trip was really good, especially with our tour guide BG from Reykjavik excursions. He waso lovely and very knowledgable and knew everything there was to know about Iceland and it’s culture.. he made the south of Iceland tour great! Unfortunately our snow mobile tour with the company arcanum was cancelled due to poor weather conditions, but they managed to squeeze us on an ATV tour which was such a great experience! Our tour for this was also great, very friendly and helpful, I think his name was Carl! Overall, good trip just a shame about the weather
