This tour starts in the afternoon. You will be picked up from your hotel/hostel in Reykjavík and head to Thingvellir National Park. It plays a big part in Iceland’s history and it’s where the two continental plates are visible. The next stop is the Geysir area where the old Geysir can be seen and 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, is next where you’ll get a chance to walk up to the waterfall. At dusk, you’ll head to Langjökull glacier. You will get all the necessary equipment and instructions at base camp before continuing the journey on snowmobiles. The darkness has its charm and here the snowmobile lights will give you a new perspective of an evening tour. There will be light refreshments served, and if weather conditions are in our favour, you will be able to see the bright stars above and the northern lights dancing in the sky. It’s a truly magical experience that is hard to put into words. To visit Langjökull glacier in the darkness is a once in a lifetime experience that you’ll never forget. After an hour on the glacier, it’s straight back to Reykjavík with drop-off at your hotel.
