Want to combine some of Iceland’s most popular sights with an ice cave and super jeep across one of Iceland’s largest glaciers? Then this tour run by ACTIVITY ICELAND is for you. This day includes crossing mountain tracks and a snow covered glacier in a customised super jeep to get to a naturally formed ice cave. All this whilst also visiting Iceland’s must see sights within the Golden Circle.
In the morning you will be picked up by your Activity Iceland guide in one of their modified Super Jeep’s. In the dark days of winter the first stop will be Geysir where you will you get to witness the sunrise over the wonders of this geothermal area, the original exploding geyser, and its surrounding steam vents. From there it is only a short drive on to the next stop, where you will be in awe of the force of Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s most powerful waterfalls. On sunny days, rainbows appear in the mist of this golden hued waterfall.
After Gullfoss you are taken in to the highlands to where the true action starts. You will see why the Super Jeep is needed, as you drive through rugged landscapes and rough terrain, up towards Langjökull glacier. Prepare for a smooth but exhilarating ride. Your guide will use his experience and the power of these amazing vehicles in driving across this most unforgiving terrain.
The newly formed Langjökull ice cave lies on the edge of the glacier and is quite the magnificent sight to see. You will witness some amazing colours and features in the ice. The natural blue colour of the ice depends on the amount of light able to come through, so sunny days with no snow coverage gives you the blues. The cave is lit up with strategically placed lights, so you get to fully enjoy the beauty of the cave, no matter the weather outside.
After some time in the Langjökull ice cave, it is time to drive back to Reykjavik. If time and daylight allow us we will make a quick stop at the famous Þingvellir National Park. This National Park holds historical and geological significance and Þingvellir is the site of the first known parliament in the world, where many of Iceland’s most important decisions were made. It is also a place of incredible beauty, sitting in the rift valley of the separating North American and Eurasian tectonic plates.
