Day 2
Golden Circle

A full-day Super Jeep excursion is the perfect way to explore some of Iceland's greatest natural phenomena. With an expert guide and plenty of stops along the way, you'll get a first-hand look at the nature and history for which this spectacular country is renowned. Begin in Thingvellir National Park, where the first Icelandic parliament was founded over 1,000 years ago. From there you'll head to the gurgling geysers and steaming vents of Haukadalur where you'll see Strokkur, one of Iceland's most powerful geysers, then, head to Gullfoss, one of Iceland's most impressive waterfalls. Stop for lunch before testing out the super jeep's capabilities as you traverse the glacial highlands, splashing through rivers and across rough terrain on your way back to Reykjavik. During winter, snowmobiling at Langjokull Glacier is also available on this tour for an additional cost.
