From Reykjavík, we depart on the modified Arctic Truck to see Iceland’s most famous sights. You sit behind the wheel, with all the Arctic Tucks power in your hands on this private self-drive tour.
We will drive to the historic Thingvellir National Park, home of ancient Icelandic Viking parliament that is registered in UNESCO world heritage site. An indescribable nature with the biggest lake in Iceland. We hear about some amazing history and to take a little look around before we continue the journey towards Haukadalsheiði following a mountain road with great views over lava fields and Iceland’s second biggest glacier – Langjökull.
In Haukadalur, home of the great Geysir hot spring that all the Geysers in the world are named after, the reliable Strokkur geyser erupts every few minutes. You don’t want to miss out seeing the incredible hot spring spout boiling water to a height of 35 meters.
Next, we head up to the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall cascading down in the Hvítá River originating in the Langjökull glacier.
Depending on weather and conditions your guide will take you on some off-road tracks on the way for some real super jeep adventure! Even though the Golden Circle is on the bucked list of most travelerts, there are many “off road” parts on the way that we can explore on the Arctic Truck.
For those who want even more action we offer an optional Snowmobiling tour on Langjökull glacier and to get there we drive on the rough mountain road Kjölur all the way to the glacier’s edge!
