Esta excursión de un día repleta de acción desde Reikiavik permite a los visitantes estar en contacto con algunos de los más famosos y emocionantes fenómenos naturales de Islandia y a bordo de un Super Jeep islandés especialmente diseñado antes de realizar un emocionante paseo en motonieve por Langjökull, el segundo glaciar más grande de Islandia.
This was AMAZING and definitely THE way to see the Golden Circle!! - I tossed and turned with which experience to book as there were several offering the same sort of thing and after much deliberation i decided to go for this one, and we were not dissapointed!
Early pick up at around 8am in a Monstrous truck!! We weren't really sure what to expect really, so we were very pleased when this beast showed up!!! There were 9 of us on the 12/14 seater truck so plenty of room! And much better than the coaches/mini-buses we saw all day. Our tour guide was great, and he even stopped at a couple of other places on the route, another waterfall and a quaint little ice cream shop which was shared with the cows who produced the milk for the ice cream.
Unfortunately the snowmobiling had to be delayed due to weather, so we were offered buggy rides, a refund, or a chance to go again if your holiday allowed. Ours fortunately did, so our tour guide arranged for us and we went back 2 days later for the snowmobiling and it was Incredible and so worth the trip back up the mountains. Unfortunately this did turn our last day into almost a full day of travel, as opposed to a few hour add-on to our Golden Circle Day, but would do it all over again if we had the chance. Truly mesmerising being on the glacier, cannot find the words to describe. Definitely a must!!!!
We were the first ones picked up at 9h, and told we were to be six in the jeep, then there was a lot of confusion on the other pick ups, so we finally left with 10 people and Reykjavik with quite some delay - which meant we were running after time the rest of the day - the visits were shorter than hoped for... Thingvellier was in the semi-darkness when we got there. Guide was very kind and helpful, but not very knowledgeable. The snowmobiling was great!
What a fantastic day! The Gulfoss waterfall was spectacular. The snowmobiling was scary but exhilarating - being in the wilderness on top of the second largest glacier was absolutely breathtaking. The snowy scenery was just beautiful. The guides were so hardworking, knowledgeable, safety conscious, fun and friendly. The visit to The National Park and to the geysirs was excellent. A very long day. Wrap up very warm and take brave tablets - it is sooo worth it!
Great trip all the way around- The tour guide was excellent knowledgeable, friendly, and eager to please. The sights were well planned for comfort and excitement, even on a cold and rainy day. Snowmobiling on a glacier was definitely a bucket list MUST! Iceland is expensive, but well worth it.
My only suggestion is to update your booking site so that my situation could be avoided. I booked on a Sunday for a Tuesday excursion. I never received a confirmation. Emails are answered within 24-48 hours and there was no telephone number to call. I finally reached an operator at 8:00am on Tuesday morning who told me that I was not confirmed but she would attempt to help me out- There was a cancellation and we were grateful to have been able to participate. Thanks for an exciting adventure!
This is a must do! Stop looking around and choose this one for the golden circle expeiance. The snowmobiling on the glacier was amazing. Thor our giude and driver was great. Best tour of the week in Iceland. The monster truck was fine and more comfortable then the buses we took.
