BSÍ , 101 Reykjavík, Iceland

BSI Bus Terminal in the city center. There is a big Reykjavík Excursions sign on the terminal.

9:00 AM
This activity will end right where it started.
Meet at the BSI Bus Terminal, where you’ll board a climate-controlled vehicle destined for your first stop—the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park.

Explore the site in your vehicle, stopping to capture photographs of the park’s striking landscapes and listening to history-rich commentary that dates back to 93 AD. Then, proceed to a geothermal area named Geysir Geyser to watch powerful streams of water emerge from the earth’s molten core.

From here, you’ll travel to the Langjökull glacier to embark on a snowmobile adventure. Before boarding your vehicle, receive a detailed safety briefing from your instructor and don the necessary protective equipment. Two to a snowmobile, you’ll ascend to the glacier’s summit and enjoy panoramic views of Iceland’s striking scenery.

Exhilarated, return to your vehicle and make your final stop at Gullfloss Waterfall, a staggering waterfall originating from a glacial lake. Capture sufficient photographs of the natural wonder and then relax during the journey back to your original departure point in Reykjavik.

Fun day but moved along too quickly. No time to even eat! Bring snacks! They prep you well for tge cold, but not fun when the snow is slushy.

Excellent day trip from Reykjavik

The tour was very well organized and our guide was very knowledgeable - we learned a lot about Iceland, its history and geography. There was plenty of time at each stop to explore. The highlight was the snowmobiling experience. It was incredible to be out on the glacier - although I am not certain if we were really out there for an hour. I would say it was more like 40 minutes of actual time on the glacier. But it was thrilling regardless! Would definitely recommend to others. We appreciated the drop off at the cruise port - we just wished there was a pickup there as well - although it was an east taxi ride to the BSI bus Terminal.

A wonderful experience! Our driver was very knowledgeable and told us history of Iceland on our drive! Each stop at geysir, gullfoss and glacier was fantastic! I only wish we had more time at the gullfoss waterfall…20 min wasn’t enough.

The tour itself was amazing. Our guide 'Frosty' was great and very knowledgeable. Besides being very friendly, during the drive to each location, he gave us tons of information about the history and geography of the region and Iceland itself. The Snowmobiling part of the tour was also an amazing experience and a highlight of our trip. We cannot recommend this more.

An amazing experience on a snowmobile which you can share with your family. The family loved it, definitely one of the best parts of our entire trip to Iceland. If you do the Golden Circle tour top it off with the snowmobile.

The best part of this tour was definitely the snow mobiles. Being on the glacier and taking in the views was phenomenal. And getting to drive a snowmobile for about an hour was a great experience. The team were brilliant getting us there and looking after us during the experience. Definitely recommended.

Snowmobiling carried this tour.

The only reason why this tour is not getting five stars is because of the golden circle portion of the tour. It was such a let down and I wish we had another option to pair with the snowmobiling because that was awesome. As I previously mentioned, the golden circle portion was a let down and I might say a waste of time. There really was nothing to see, except the wall where they did film some scenes on GoT and where the old parliament used to hold their meetings. There is a nice waterfall on top near where they pick you up for the snowmobiling tour however, it was extremely windy and cold when we were up there. Again, wasn't that great of a sight and it was way too windy. On to the snowmobiling portion... it was fantastic and fun! They do provide a snow suit so you can withstand the cold/wind, but of course you should still wear your jacket underneath as it will fit. If you've got some nice snowboarding/skiing gloves, I would suggest bringing them even though they do provide them, they weren't as warm as you'd like. I would recommend this excursion as the snowmobiling portion was very fun and an experience to be had.
