"My friends and I spent the whole day touring the Golden Circle and even got to go snowmobiling on a glacier. It was a full day, but totally worth it. We were picked up by our tour guide in Reykjavik in a super jeep! Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us for an amazing ride up the glacier. We went snowmobiling first and the experience was incredible! The company provides all the gear you need to keep you warm."

Strokkur Geyser

Stokkur, the geyser which erupts every 5-7 minutes

Tour Itinerary

We will start bright and early: collecting you from your Reykjavik accommodation at 08:30. (Please be aware that this process can take up to 30 minutes, depending on where you are staying).

From Reykjavik, we will set off to the famous Golden Circle: the scenic journey will take about 40 minutes, but don’t worry there are plenty of things to see along the way. We will begin by visiting the Thingvellir National Park, which is both steeped in history and stunningly beautiful. There you will see the historic site of Althingi, site of the world’s oldest operational parliament: Icelandic parliamentarians have been meeting at Althingi since 930 AD and the modern Parliament bares the same name. Thingvellir National Park also has some of the most unique geology in the world: having been crafted by both extreme heat from volcanos and extreme cold by the ice. When you see Thingvellir you will understand why Iceland is described as the land of Fire and Ice.

From Thingvellir, we will move on to the iconic geothermal area around Geysir hot spring: here you will see the incredible Geysers throw water and steam up to 25 meters into the air. The Geysir hot springs have become synonymous with Iceland and it is impossible not to appreciate the awesome power of nature when you see them.

Gullfoss Falls Golden Circle

The magnificent Gullfoss Falls in the Golden Circle

After Geysir we will travel on to Gullfoss (the Golden Waterfall). Gullfoss is truly one of the natural wonders of the world and a perfect spot to take a photo, in front of the cascading water. If we are lucky enough to visit Gullfoss on a sunny day, then the water turns a majestic golden brown colour and a rainbow will form above the falls. Gullfoss, is truly a spectacular sight and should be on everyone’s bucket list.

By then you will no doubt be hungry, and it is possible to purchase some lunch at the Gullfoss Café, before we move on to Langjökull glacier. Finally we will kick things up a notch, by snowmobiling around Langjökull, Iceland’s second biggest glacier. Langjökull, is the perfect end to the perfect day, combining stunning beauty with the fun of riding a snowmobile: it has something for everyone and it is impossible not to have a good time at Langjökull. After Langjökull, tired but incredibly satisfied we will return to Reykjavik.

The Golden Circle Tour offers a once in a lifetime experience: in just one day you will see and do things that take other people the entire lives. So don’t delay, sign up today and cross four things off you Bucket List!

Snowmobiling on Langjokull Glacier

Get your adrenaline pumping on the glacier...

The Golden Circle Tour offers a once in a lifetime experience: in just one day you will see and do things that take other people the entire lives. So don’t delay, sign up today and cross four things off you Bucket List!

(At Extreme Iceland we value safety above all else, and we reserve the right to change things without notice, according to the weather and road conditions).

Our comfortable jeeps seat between 9-16 people, so the Golden Circle Tour, will always be a small group experience: who knows, when seeing such things together, you might make friends that last a lifetime.

The cost of the Golden Circle Tour is calculated on the basis that two people will share a snowmobile. If you are travelling alone or would prefer to have your own snowmobile then you can upgrade to a solo one for an additional 6000 ISK per person.

- A normal booking assumes that 2 people will share one snowmobile

- If you wish to have you own snowmobile (or your group has an odd number of people), then please select the number of individual snowmobiles required when making your booking.

- You must have a valid driver’s license to operate a snowmobile

- We will collect you from all major hotels/pick-up points in the downtown Reykjavik area.

Brilliant experience, fantastic guide ...Kaldik ...I think (went out on 1st Feb). Definitely recommend it.

Amazing adventure and great tour guide!

We did the golden circle with a snowmobile on Thursday 1/31/19 and it was amazing. We learned a lot at Thingvellir national park and had some amazing landscape views. The Geysir and Gullfoss waterfowl were breathtaking as well. As for the snowmobiling, that was an adventure all on its own. First, the ride in the super Jeep up the snowy trail kept us on the edge of our seat with full confidence that our driver (Kris) would get us to our location safely. Although he got stuck about 1/4 mile from the snowmobile base, he was able to free the Jeep and get us there. When we got to the snowmobiles, a very thorough safety explanation was given before starting our ride. As we drove up to the glacier, we witnessed the most amazing scenery I've ever seen. And to top the trip off, we saw a sun halo around the sun, something not seen every day. Only thing I would change is the speed on the snowmobiles. I understand safety is a top priority but at the time the group was going too slow. Overall amazing experience with great guides. Will definitely recommend to a friend.

Super Jeep Tour & Snow Mobiling

4 by Kim Oultram January 21, 2019
We had a brilliant day, the super jeep tour was well worth doing. Our guide "Eagle" (can't remember his real name) was funny and informative. It seems a shame to criticize an excellent day but the only comment I would make would be that a few more minutes at Gulfoss would have been nice, we only had 20 minutes there and it took over five minutes to walk to one of the viewing platforms, so we didn't get a chance to walk to the other viewing platform.

Great Tour

"Was a great tour but a little too dark for the last stop at the Geyser so could see very little. The driver/guide was not unfriendly but no real information is given - did a tour the next day and the driver was LOVELY way more chatty and much more info given about Iceland in general and the countryside, etc, etc, etc. It would have been good to have somewhat who seems like they want to be there... Love love loved the Snowmobiling... a little pricey but was AMAZING!"

Wonderful experience!!

5 by Paula, Liverpool,England October 23, 2018
"What can I say it exceeded all our expectations, it was truly wonderful. The only disappointment was not getting to see the Northern Lights due to bad weather, but that gives us an excuse to visit your wonderful country yet again. Thanks again Paula and family"

Extreme Iceland Arctic Adventures

5 by Michael Hauser October 20, 2018
Fantastic day. My 16 year old said snowmobiles on the glacier was the coolest thing he's ever done in his life. I've been on many other guided tours around the world and the only recommendation I have would be for guides to talk a little more about the culture of their country and give a bit more introduction to the language. I had planned to use some simple Icelandic words on the 4-day trip but brought the wrong guidebook and I was surprised that none of our guides seemed to get more of a kick out of teaching the guests more Icelandic terms.
