Departure from Reykjavík in the morning using specially built 4-wheel drive vehicles which is the ideal way to explore Icelands off the beaten tracks to many of the most fascinating and secret places in Iceland. We drive to Þingvellir national park, a remarkable geological site and the most historic site on the island. The beautiful canyon running through the park is actually the meeting point of two of the earth's tectonic plates and the area's combination of natural phenomena and historical significance make it inseparable from the fabric of Icelandic nation life.
Onwards to Langjokull Glacier where the group will enjoy a wonderful 1 hour snowscooter tour. For the snowmobile tour we provide all participants with warm overalls and helmets, and gloves, hats and overboots if needed. Two persons per scooter, switching half ways. After enjoying the snow we will enjoy a delicious buffet on the glacier or in the mountain hut, depending on weather conditions.
Soup of the day – Sushi – King shrimps – Pan-fried cod – Chicken tenderloins – Pickled salmon – Risotto – Tortellini pasta w/fresh vegetables – Lamb w/teriyaki – Potato salad – Fresh salad – Bread and butter. Coffee / tea and small piece of chocolate.
From there we go to one of the most impressive waterfall in Europe, Gullfoss (Golden Waterfall). Here you will see thousands of tons of icy water thunder majestically down in a double-fall into a deep gorge, surely a powerful sight. Afterwards we continue to the Geysir hot spring area. There we will discover the famous Geysir which has given its name to hot springs all over the world. You will see one of the most active geysers in the area, Strokkur, spouting up to 30 meters. Drive back to Reykjavík in the afternoon.
