"We were picked up at our hotel on time. Our driver was informative and had excellent details about Iceland. Her name was Öydur/ Auður or something similar. She also spoke Swedish. The tour was counterclockwise and we got plenty of time at each stop. We were 10 people on the tour. A more intimate tour than going with the large tourist buses."


Tour Description

langjokull glacier super jeep

On a clear day the views on Langjokull Glacier can be amazing!

After pick up in Reykjavik we start the tour by heading to Thingvellir crossing the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that divides the tectonic plates, along a landscape with moss covered lava fields with volcanoes on both sides.

First stop is Thingvellir National Park. Here the settlers founded the first parliament in the world in the year 930-1845, when it moved to Reykjavík. In the drift valley you see how the two tectonic plates, the American and Eurasian drift apart, in average 2.5 cm per year. Here you have more information about Thingvellir National Park

Traveling by super jeep is much more fun

Next stop is Geysir geothermal area. It is from the Icelandic word "geysir" that the English word "geyser" is derived. The geyser Strokkur bursts into the air every 5-8 minutes while other hot springs in the area are quiet but colorful. Here you have more information about Geysir geothermal field

Gullfoss Falls cascades down two huge steps 11 and 22 meters into a deep gorge. Gullfoss is the first waterfall in Iceland to be preserved as a local girl, Sigríður Tómasdóttir fought a brave fight against the authorities who wanted to to build the first hydro power plant by the falls.

Strokkur, the geyser erupts every 5-7 minutes

From there we change path and leave the habitual way, as we go up to the highlands for a highland excursion. We make a quick stop at our highland base before continuing to Langjokull glacier, Iceland's second largest glacier. During winter time we wont be able to drive all the way to the glacier but we will see it clearly if conditions allow. But driving in the highlands, in a super jeep, during winter time is a unique experience.

And finally we drop you off at your hotel in Reykjavik after a tour that covered all the main sights of the Golden Circle as well as a highland visit in a 4x4 truck.

Extreme Iceland every time!

We had a great tour guide which obviously makes the day and this is a great way to see some of incredible Iceland. Our tour guide was really informative and good humoured. Enough time at each drop to enjoy the sights. The snowmobiling was great and we had the opportunity to have a proper go rather than just stay in a single tour line. Would highly recommend.

Golden Circle with Snowmobile Tour

Very well organised tour with interesting sights, we were always well looked after, especially during the snowmobile ride. However, having to drive in glacial streams instead of on snow made driving difficult and spoilt some of the fun. I particularly liked the visit to the waterfalls and Thingvellir.

Golden Circle + Snowmobile

5 by Ralf Roenisch July 31, 2018
The tour started badly - the guide forgot to pick us up although there have been a lot of email traffic to arrange everything. But the back office managed to sort it out and after some switch between different coaches and taxi we joined our initial tour during their first stop. The Super Jeep was more likely a Super Bus with 16 px, quite comfortable and a picture point for other tourists during the stops. We had approbiate time at the sights and got good explanations by the guide. We entered the Snowmobiles after arriving at the glacier, all equipment was available and even the rain stopped during our experience. All in all it was a special tour which I can highly recommend to join.

Just amazing

Great history of Ireland while driving, and the places he took us were just magical!

A once in a lifetime experience

"It's honestly difficult to put into words what an incredible, unique experience we had on our tour. When the guide came to pick us up, we were informed that our glacier hike was under-booked. But no worries there: we were upgraded to the snowmobile tour free of charge. Our tour guide was informative, funny, and so helpful at every step of the way. She did a great job of keeping us stimulated between stops through a mixture of personal anecdotes, general information about Iceland, and eclectic Icelandic music. The stops in the golden circle are all just as breathtaking as everyone says they are, and in my opinion the glacier add-on is a must-see. I plan on returning to Iceland many times in my life, and Extreme Iceland will be my first choice for exploring the island's natural beauty. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

Highlight of the trip!

The Golden Circle tour is a great experience, however adding snowmobiling on a glacier made it spectacular! Our guide was bright and funny and told us about Icelandic culture, the history of the region, as well as some personal stories that really added to the experience. They take care of everything to make sure we were safe and warm. I had never been on a snowmobile before and had no trouble keeping up. They also have snowsuits for every size, and didn't make me feel uncomfortable about getting a bigger size. I highly recommend this trip!

Our Golden Circle and Snowmobiling Tour was great. Our tour guide was very knowledgable, engaging and friendly. He made sure our group had an amazing time. The snowmobiling was exhilarating and worth every penny. Being on the glacier and looking out over the snow was breath taking. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone that wants a great Icelandic experience.

Great adventure

Fantastic day out with guide Gi Gi we did the golden circle tour with snowmobiling , unfort due to bad weather the glacier got closed and we weren't able to go snowmobiling. Gi Gi arranged for us to go ATV driving instead and it was epic!!!! A fantastic day out, loved every minute and the super jeep was super cool.
