This tour starts in the afternoon. We will pick you up from your hotel/hostel in Reykjavik and head to Thingvellir National Park. It plays a big part in Iceland´s history and it´s where the two continental tectonic plates are visible. Our next stop is the Geysir area where the old Geysir can be seen. The hot spring Strokkur erupts regularly so you´ll be able to experience an hot spring in action. The beautiful waterfall Gullfoss, or the Golden Waterfall, will be our next stop where you´ll get a chance to walk up to the waterfall. At dusk, we´ll head to Langjökull glacier. At the base camp we will get all necessary equipment and instructions before we continue our journey on snowmobiles. The darkness has its charm and here the snowmobile lights will give you a new perspective of an evening tour. If weather conditions are in our favor, we will be able to see the bright stars above us and the Northern lights dancing in the sky. It´s a magical experience that is hard to put into words. To visit Langjökull glacier in the darkness is a lifetime experience you will never forget. After a 1 hour tour on the glacier, we drive straight back to Reykjavík.
