The Pearl, The Golden Circle Super Jeep and Snowmobile tour, is an incredible adventure where you will experience some of Iceland’s most famous and exciting natural phenomena, topped off with an unforgettable snowmobile tour on Langjökull glacier.
The tour departs from Reykjavik, and your pick-up starts at 8:30 AM anywhere in the city center.
Our first stop on the Golden Circle is Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home of Iceland’s first parliament and the oldest extant parliamentary institution in the world. Founded in AD 930, it is Iceland’s most significant historical site. You can see there the consequences of Iceland’s location between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, like a gorgeous Almannagjá gorge, delightful Öxarárfoss Waterfall, and many rock cracks.
From Þingvellir, we head inland toward the highly active Geysir Hot Spring area with its boiling mud pits and spouting hot springs. For some wet and wild excitement, if the winds are right, you can let the falling water from the mighty geyser give you a good dousing.
We continue to Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s most powerful waterfalls. Located on the Hvítá river, this waterfall fed by Langjökull Glacier plummets 32 meters in two stages into a rugged canyon. And while you’re there, keep your fingers crossed; with some luck, you’ll be greeted by a rainbow on a sunny day.
To top it all off, we drive to Langjökull Glacier for another Iceland adventure where we will dash across snowfields on snowmobiles, gazing at the mountain peaks while enveloped in this icy realm.
The Golden Circle is something you must see in Iceland, and the trip in a super jeep and adventure on snowmobiles makes this tour exciting and unforgettable. Once-in-a-lifetime experience!
