Highlights
    What to Expect
    After morning pickup from your central Reykjavik hotel, take a seat inside your super jeep—a rugged SUV with monster-size tires specially designed to make light work of Iceland’s challenging terrain.

    Then, admire the surreal-looking landscapes as you travel to Thingvellir National Park. This pristine wilderness is one of the three sights of the famous Golden Circle and known as the location of Iceland’s first parliament in 930 AD.

    View the assembly site and hear about the speeches and laws that were laid down here through the centuries. Stroll around the rugged landscapes, and soak up views of the park’s awe-inspiring features.

    Next, follow mountain tracks to the geothermal region of Geysir. Take the walkways around the bubbling mud pits and steam vents, and keep your camera poised to snap the geyser just as it erupts into the air. Then, drive to the next Golden Circle site: the breathtaking Gulfoss waterfall. Ogle the stupendous double falls, and with luck, catch sight of the rainbows that sometimes form in the water spray.

    After a stop for a delicious Icelandic lunch (own expense), such as hearty lamb stew, travel on to Langjökull, Iceland’s second biggest glacier, for your unforgettable snowmobile ride.

    Admire the magnificent glacier, don your supplied coveralls, helmet and gloves; and after a safety briefing, hop on to your 2-seater snowmobile. Then, open the throttle and set off behind your guide. Feel the adrenaline rush as you zip over the packed snow and ice, and take in the incredible glacier and mountain views as you go.

    Afterward, enjoy a scenic jeep journey back to Reykjavik. Your tour concludes with a drop-off at your hotel.

    Please note: the order of activities on this tour may be subject to change to ensure the snowmobiling session takes place in the best light conditions.

    Super Jeep provided a great small group Golden Circle Tour and Glacier Snowmobiling experience. Our guide was excellent and taught us a great deal about Iceland and the sights we were seeing. The trip was well planned to avoid the large groups at the attractions. Our guide took

    Hallur was a fabulous guide. So charming and his authentic Icelandic background more than made up for missing some words due to his accent. Snowmobiling was the highlight of a fantastic week in Iceland (led by an on-site expert who was also both extremely authentic and qualified

    Just a quick review to say how fantastic Artic Adventures were on our trip to Iceland in May 2019. We would have liked to hire a car & toured the whole country but our 5 days in Reykjavik meant we had to pack in as much as we could in the short time we were there & the 3 small

    We spent a brilliant day with Simon (in the best modified Sprinter we have ever seen!). We saw all the Golden Circle highlights, and the afternoon on the snowmobile was so much fun. Safety is taken very seriously (equipment, instructions etc) , but doesn't spoil the fun.

    As far as I am concerned, this is a must do. Everyone does the golden circle. It is on everyone's agenda for a first trip to Iceland and rightfully so. In the winter when there is ice on the ground, a super jeep isn't completely necessary, but it is super nice and the way to

    "technically" an ice cave but really disappointing
    Snowmobiling was total 40 minutes or less both ways. View is breathtaking. The ice cave is not much of a cave.
