The Golden Circle tour allows visitors to experience some of Iceland’s most famous and exciting natural phenomena. Your first stop will be at Thingvellir National Park which is one of Iceland’s most significant historical sites. From Thingvellir you head along mountain tracks to Geysir hot spring area and Gullfoss waterfall (“the Golden waterfall”). What makes this Golden Circle tour special is that you travel by Super Jeep. A Super Jeep is originally a standard truck/SUV or van that is modified according to strict regulations in Iceland. It is basically an especially equipped 4×4 vehicle with very large tires (36-46 inch or 95-120 cm tall) that is designed appositely to face Icelandic demanding terrains and unpredictable weather both in winter and summer.
Next it will be time to kick the action into higher gear to get even closer to Iceland’s nature and go for a one hour snowmobiling tour at/near Langjökull area, Iceland’s second largest glacier.
