Full description
Your day starts early in Reykjavik, where you board a comfortable bus to the top attractions in Iceland. Enjoy a day of adventure led by a personal host and detailed audio guide in ten languages. Your first stop is Thingvellir National Park, where the oldest parliament in the world was founded and the tectonic plates are pulling apart every day. From Thingvellir, drive through lush lava fields and farmlands until steam rises from the ground at Geysir Geothermal Area. You will have around one hour to take in the beautiful scenery and witness Strokkur erupting a few times. Then, continue to Gullfoss Waterfall, the queen of Icelandic waterfalls. Complete your day with a truck ride up to Langjökull Glacier, the second largest glacier in Europe. Rush off for an unforgettable snowmobile ride on top of the glacier and visit a man-made glacier ice cave.   After walking under the glacier, you will ride your snowmobile back to the warm glacier hut and be taken back to Gullfoss, where you’ll board the bus again and ride back to Reykjavik after a day of amazing adventures.
