Enjoy the Golden Circle highlights such as Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area and Thingvellir National Park. However, as this tour is in a Super Jeep, it will also include a fun filled trip up to Langjokull glacier, the second largest in Iceland.
This classic drive begins with a visit to Þingvellir, a National Park and site of the World’s oldest parliament (established on the site in 930 AD) which has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2004.
The entrance to Þingvellir is a walk through the Almannagjá gorge, visible evidence of plate tectonic activity on the European-American fault-line which is still today pushing the two continents apart and creating Iceland, geology’s youngest country. Some of the rifts are full of clear water and have been a popular place for scuba diving and snorkeling.
Then it’s on to the Geysir geothermal area, which has given its name to spouting hot springs all over the world and is one of the greatest natural attractions in Iceland.
Before our next stop we visit another one of our iconic and impressive natural features, Gullfoss. It carries the melted water from Langjökull glacier down Hvítá river. The waterfall has distinct curves and thus adding drama to the powerful display.
You can grab something to eat at either Gullfoss or Geysir café before we drive on the mountain road Kjölur, up on Langjökull glacier, the second largest glacier in Iceland with its endless snowfields and wonderful panoramic views of south Iceland. The journey from the glacier provides photo opportunities and some serious jeep fun at the glaciers edge before we head back to Reykjavik.
The Golden Circle tour is also available with a snowmobile option.
Please bring loose change for toilet fees, warm clothes, a camera and some snacks for the ride. The driver will be stopping at service stations should you wish to purchase something there.

Pick up services
Missing the pick up does not entitle you to a refund for the paid services. You are responsible for being ready at the designated pick up location at the scheduled time. Pick up locations vary from tour to tour but we always try our best to pick you up as close to your accommodations as possible. New regulations from the city of Reykjavík has hindered our ability to drive our larger vehicles within the city center so you might be required to go to the nearest bus stop.
