Join this private super jeep excursion of Iceland’s most popular sightseeing route, the Golden Circle. If you want to experience these famed sights with your personal group of travel companions as opposed to big tour buses, with the added options of a buggy or snowmobile adventure at Langjökull Glacier, this is the tour for you.
Your journey begins as you get picked up in Reykjavík City, where you’ll meet your friendly local guide and board your modified and private transportation, a Super Jeep capable of handling Iceland’s rough terrains with comfort and ease.
Then, you’ll begin your drive until reaching your first destination of Þingvellir National Park, a continental rift valley located at the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. See how the North-American and Eurasian tectonic plates are busy pulling the landscape apart, amidst a stunning scenery of vast lava fields, sparkling fissures and deep gorges.
After learning of the geological wonders and fascinating history of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, you’ll continue to the geothermal area of Geysir in Haukadalur Valley. Here, sizzling fumaroles and bubbling mud pools dot a sulphurised landscape of active and spouting geysers, most notably Strokkur; shooting up boiling water as high as 20-40 metres (60-130 feet) in the air at regular intervals.
Next up is the rumbling cascade of Gullfoss Waterfall, the most iconic falls of the land of ice and fire. See them tumbling down two tiers into a dramatic canyon below, in a singular display of raw, unharnessed power, feed by the frosty-white glacial river Hvítá.
Your super jeep will then bring you up the slopes of Langjökull Glacier, where you can embark on a thrilling snowmobile on top of the ice, or a riveting buggy ride by the foot of the glacier. Before heading back to Reykjavík, you will stop at the waterfall Faxi, a hidden gem of the area often overlooked by the tour buses.
Don’t miss out on your private excursion of the Golden Circle route in South Iceland, onboard a super jeep with the added options of snowmobiling or buggy riding.
