Golden Circle and Glacier
Super Jeep Day Tour from Reykjavik

Gullfoss on the Golden Circle day tour from Reykjavik

Price: ISK 39.900 per person

Smallest shared group size in the industry: Only 2-6 passengers in each Super-Jeep

The Golden Circle is the most popular day tour in Iceland for first time visitors. It includes the tectonic plate boundaries and the old parliament site at Thingvellir, Gullfoss waterfall and the geysers. This day tour is however different from the bus excursions because you will only share it with a couple of other people in a comfortable Super-Jeep instead of bus full of strangers. Also, on this Super-Jeep tour we go into the highlands to a glacier where you have the option of going snowmobiling on a glacier.

Itinerary for the Golden Circle + Glacier
Super Jeep Day Tour

Super Jeep On Langjokul Glacier on the Golden Circle tour
Departure from Reykjavik to Thingvellir where the oldest parliament in world was founded and you can see the tectonic plates boundaries.

After Thingvellir we cross the road of Lyngdalsheidi towards Geysir and Gullfoss where we stop for lunch. Seeing the geyser Strokkur spout boiling water 25-30 m high in the air is fantastic nature experience and the Geysir area has numerous other hot springs.

After seeing Iceland's most famous waterfall, Gullfoss up close and listening to its roaring thunder as it cascades 32 metres down the mighty glacial river Hvita we drive a mountain track to Iceland's second largest glacier, Langjokull, where you have the option of renting a snowmobile and blazing across the white plains of the glacier.  If you decide not to go snowmobiling, driving on the snow and seeing the glacier and the barren landscape is still big fun and extraordinary. On the way back to Reykavik we pass Hveragerdi village and Hellisheidi geothermal power plant. Once in Reykjavik, we will drop you off at your hotel or a restaurant of your choice.

Our driverguides are knowledgeable about Iceland and will gladly adjust to your particular interest the best they can, whether it's nature, geology, history, current affairs - or 4x4 stuff. We refer to it as 'conversational guiding'. The interaction with our clients is a big part of why we love our jobs.

Thingvellir is sometimes written Pingvellir but in Icelandic it's Þingvellir (The special Icelandic letter 'Þ' is a 'Th-sound' but the letter looks like a 'P')

Frequently Asked Questions about The Golden Circle Tour

Q: Do we need to bring lunch or is there a place to stop on the way?
A: There is a café both at Gullfoss and at Geysir. We stop at one of them for lunch and the other one for refreshments in the afternoon - so no, you don't have to bring lunch.

Q: Do we have to book the snowmobiles in advance or can we decide when we get to the glacier?
A: The snowmobiles need to be booked in advance because the snowmobile company, which is based in Reykjavik, needs to know how many guides to send and how many skidoos they need to prepare.

Q: Do we need special clothes for the snowmobiles?
A: The snowmobile company provides helmets, balaclavas, overalls, gloves and over-boots. However, whether you go snowmobiling or not, we always recommend having wind and wetproof clothing - anytime of the year. It's better to have it and not need it, rather than the other way around.
