Great Golden Circle, Super Truck & Snowmobiling Tour adventure tour
Could not ask for a better tour and exhilarating extreme snowmobiling experience on the Langjokull glacier!. Our expert guide Bjorn went out of his way to accommodate all our requests and questions, convey knowledge, keep us on schedule for all the tour sightseeing, and really provide a great adventure and conversation throughout the entire day. All aspects of the day were top notch from the comfort of the 4WD SUV to the help of the other tour operation staff & guides with snowmobile equipment and safety. I definitely recommend this tour and snowmobiling - great day!

We’ll pick you up in Reykjavik then head out to the famous Golden Circle in our specially designed super truck. The vehicle is outfitted with massive tires sturdy enough to take on Iceland’s rugged terrain while maintaining a comfortable ride. Come face to face with the power of nature at Thingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area, and Gullfoss Waterfall. Then zoom out on the slopes of Langjokull Glacier on an unforgettable snowmobile ride!
The price of the guided tour is based on two people sharing one snowmobile. If you’re a solo traveler or prefer to have your own snowmobile, then you can upgrade to a solo snowmobile, see booking engine for details.
Drivers must possess a valid driver’s license and be at least 18 years of age to operate a snowmobile in Iceland.
Pick up starts at 8:30 a.m. You’ll be picked up at your selected location in Reykjavik. Please note, that the pickup process can take up to 30 min.
Snowmobiles: Our equipment is always the best possible. We currently have 40 snowmobiles available on Langjökull – Lynx Adventures 600 CC and Polaris IQ LXT 550 CC.

The first stop on our Iceland national park golden circle tour is the historic Þingvellir National Park. Here you can find the Althing, Iceland’s original parliament, which was founded in 930 AD and then moved to Reykjavik. Take in the cultural significance of this ancient place while enjoying the lakes, waterfalls and green mossy fields. In places, the jigsaw pieces of the Earth’s crust don’t fit snugly, meaning that you can walk between them!

The geological marvels only intensify as we head towards the Geysir geothermal area; the centerpiece of an area bubbling with geothermal activity. Taking in an almost otherworldly atmosphere of steam and gasses, with the ground seething and gurgling below your feet, we’ll wait for the show to begin. Every 5-8 minutes a violent eruption sends jets of boiling water high into the sky, a magnificent spectacle that has to be seen to be believed.

Continuing on through the untamed roads of Iceland’s interior, we arrive at the majestic Gullfoss waterfall. This is the perfect place to stop for lunch at the Gullfoss Cafe. Enjoy a snack while taking in the sheer power of the waterfall, which crashes down over two separate tiers before plummeting into a deep canyon. If the sun is shining, you can capture brilliant photos of rainbows shimmering over the falls.

Langjökull glacier is our final destination and where the adrenalin truly kicks in. A scenic drive takes us up to the glacier camp, where your snowmobile guide awaits. After some safety instructions, it’s off we go on the adventure of a lifetime, as our guides lead the way on an expedition across the glacier.
Exploring the vast, icy expanse of one of nature’s great wonders is an incredible experience of its own, but add the thrilling speed and fun of our sporty snowmobiles and you’ve got a truly unforgettable adventure.
A fitting end to the day of a lifetime, it’s with exhausted smiles that we climb back into the super jeep for the scenic journey back to Reykjavik.

James was our tour guide and is a really nice guy to get along with. He talked about what we were seeing and allowed us plenty of time at each site to take in the views. We enjoyed the whole tour from start to finish. Thank you Arctic Adventures!

We had two tours with Arctic Adventures: Golden Circle, Super Truck & Snowmobiling and Into the Glacier. We loved both tours! The tour guides were friendly, fun and very knowledgeable. Excellent experiences and we wouldn't have gotten to see Iceland that well without them! BIG thanks to Gunnar & Orla, our guides. Amazing views on both tours. Would definitely recommend these tours to anyone travelling around Iceland.

We booked two tours with Arctic Adventures - the Golden Circle with Snowmobiling in a cool Supertruck and the Northern Lights turn in an even cooler Suoer Jeep. Both Simon Thor (Golden Circle) and Gunner (Northern Lights) were very funny and knowledgeable! We had a fantastic experience on both trips and the lights performed beautifully for us, cannot recommend this Company highly enough to you!
Small Group, Super Jeep, Golden Circle & Snowmobiling Tour
Reviewed 08/02/2019 by Judith Williamson
The whole trip from start to finish was very well organised, our guide John was very informative and helpful in every way, we were pleased we chose the small group tour in the Super Jeep as we had both John and the Jeep from start to finish, we were picked up and dropped off at the hotel. The Jeep could go places other vehicles couldn't and this was a great experience in itself. We had plenty time at each stop to enjoy the sights and experiences, the snowmobiling on the Glacier was a wonderful way to finish the trip off. We booked this trip online from the UK and the whole process was easy and contact with the company prior to the trip was also very good.
Golden Circle, Supertruck and Snowmobile

As a group of 4 we had the most fantastic tour. The Super Truck was excellent giving a small sized tour group. Great commentary from the driver, giving interesting and unusual Icelandic facts. The tour scenery was a beautiful and as enjoyable as the scheduled stops. The journey to the snowmobile base camp in our Super Truck was excellent. With clear blue skies we had the very best snowmobile trek on the glacier. This Artic Adventures tour was the highlight of our holiday in Iceland
Great Adventure tour

The Golden Circle, Supertruck Snowmobiling tour was a great experience had by all of my colleagues. Although the weather wasn't in our favour on the day, the site of the Gullfoss waterfall was spectacular and the snowmobiling was a pure adrenaline rush. An experience I would definitely recommend, and the team guides were first class and looked after each and everyone of our group.
Epic Day In Icleland

We had the most incredible day with Arni our guide, visiting the Golden Circle and the highlight of the day - snowmobiling on the glacier. From the moment we were picked up on the ph so cool monster truck, til we were dropped off st the end of the day, we had a fantastic time. Arni was awesome and we learnt so much about Iceland and Icelandic culture. All of the sights were breathtaking and there was plenty of time to see everything. We had a beautiful sunny day and watching the sun as it was setting on the glacier was the most stunning thing I have ever seen. It’s one of the best trips I have ever been on in my life. I wouldn’t hesitate to rebook other tours with Arctic Adventures and hope to return again - for more fun with you guys!

Being my first time in Iceland the experience with Arctic Adventures was an unforgettable one. I had a great time at the entire tour. The place in itself is magnificent but in contrast with the cold weather during winter, our guide/driver Marty is very warm, jolly and accommodating. She rocks and she’s one of the best guides I had ever met. There was a slight error/misunderstanding on the tour that I booked but it turned to be a blessing in disguise because of Marty’s help. Will definetely go back to Iceland and would definitely recommend Arctic Adventures.

This was an outstanding experience. I would like to make special mention of our tour guide. Mardis was not only an excellent guide. Her constant smile and infectious laugh only added to the experience. She was also very knowledgeable about the geographical sights we were seeing. Thanks for providing a great experience and memory of Iceland
