Itinerary for the Golden Circle
Super Jeep tour
Departure from Reykjavik to volcano Hengill and Nesjavellir where we can learn about how the enormous geothermal power is harnessed to provide Reykjavik with both hot water and electricity without polluting.
From Hengill it´s only a short drive to Thingvellir where the oldest parliament in world was founded and you can see the tectonic plates boundaries. After Thingvellir we cross the mountain road of Lyngdalsheidi towards Geysir and Gullfoss where we stop for lunch.
Seeing the geyser Strokkur spout boiling water 25-30 m high in the air is fantastic nature experience and the Geysir area has numerous other hot springs. After seeing Iceland’s most famous waterfall, Gullfoss up close and listening to its roaring thunder as it cascades 32 meters down the mighty glacial river Hvíta we drive a mountain track to Iceland´s second largest glacier, Langjokull where you have the option of renting a snowmobile and blaze across the white plains of the glacier.
If you decide not to go snowmobiling, driving on the snow and seeing the glacier and the barren landscape is still big fun and extraordinary.
On the way back to Reykjavik we make a short photo stop at the Crater Lake Kerid. Once in Reykjavik we will drop you off at your hotel or a restaurant of your choice.
We will of course adjust the tour to your needs and wishes. Please do not hesitate make requests or ask questions.
