On this tour, you will combine together sightseeing of the amazing Golden circle, a 1 hour atv tour in stunning nature, and a super jeep excursion to Langjokull glacier.
Thingvellir is a national park, and a world UNESCO heritage site. This is where the worlds oldest continuously-running parliament was founded, and there you can see how the amazing energy of our planet is ripping the earth a part, little by little, every year.
At Geysir geothermal area, you will find Strokkur geyser. It spouts boiling hot water into the air every 20 minutes or so, displaying the intense pressure that builds up right below our feet.
Gullfoss waterfall is not only stunningly beautiful, but it has also sparked much debate on powerplants vs nature conservation. I think it is fairly clear how we feel about that!
You will put the super jeep to the test by driving up to Langjökull glacier area. Sometimes the conditions are amazing, and you can zoom across the rugged mountain roads, or a vast expanse of frozen snow. But sometimes you must really struggle through the snow, testing the skills of your driver and the powers of the car.
At some point during the day, you will climb on board a quad bike for your 1 hour ATV tour. On this activity, you will zoom through stunning nature, on your own quad bike (2 per bike). Make sure to dress in clothes you don’t mind getting wet, because mud, dust or even snow are all part of the fun!
