Come far off the beaten track with us as we take in the natural wonders of Iceland’s best-known attractions in an exhilarating, full day adventure!
Our rugged but comfortable super truck tour takes you on an off-road experience around the fabled Golden Circle, arriving at some of Iceland’s best-known attractions from the less-traveled road. Encompassing gushing geysers, bubbling hot springs, ancient sites steeped in history and an iconic waterfall, you’ll see the best of Iceland in one thrilling day! Top it all off with an adventure in true Arctic style: we’ll take you atop Iceland’s second largest glacier for an unforgettable snowmobile ride.
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.

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.

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.

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
