Best thing ever!

We booked the golden circle and snowmobiling experience on a glacier. Although the golden circle was good and very interesting, and our guide informative and knowledgable, it was a very touristy trip and something we wouldn’t normally do. The snowmobiling on the other hand.....well words fail! We have never experienced anything like that and we have travelled the world! It felt such a privilege to be able to stand and look out over miles of unspoilt, sparkling whiteness - but how long until it has gone? Who knows

It was a great trip but I think the time traveling should be explained in the brief as this is quite a lot of the time out....also the actual time you get on the snowmobile was very misleading. We had half that time and the experience was very disappointing. It should explain that you literally go up and around in a circle following everyone which was very un impressive and not worthy at all of the cost of this. Next time I would probably not bother doing the snow mobiling as I felt it wasn’t a true experience of what it was Described as.
