Getting to Iceland's Highlands is impossible without the right vehicle. On this tour you'll see the highlights of the Golden Circle (Thingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir) with ease, as well as venturing off road into the rugged interior for a 1-hour snowmobile ride over Langjokull Glacier. Hotel pickup and drop-off, and all necessary equipment for the snowmobile ride, are included.
  • Off-road vehicle takes you into the Highlands
  • All necessary equipment provided
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Travel between attractions with ease 
What to Expect
Begin your adventure with pickup from your downtown Reykjavik hotel. Meet your guide and settle in to the vehicle for a short drive to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Thingvellir, the first site of Iceland's parliament, which is the oldest in the world. Continue on to the geothermal area around the Geysir hot spring. Marvel as, every few minutes, hot water shoots 80 feet (25 meters) into the air. Next, it's on to the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall where water plunges in two stages into a 105-foot (32-meter) crevice. Deep into the interior Highlands, arrive at Langjokull Glacier. After listening to a safety briefing and getting driving instruction, board your snowmobile (complete with all necessary equipment) and follow your guide for an exhilarating hour-long ride across the ice. Your tour ends with a drop-off back at your hotel at around 6:30pm.
