It was wonderful!!! I had the pleasure of joining the day tour on April 28. The team was exceptionally professional and responsive, swiftly adjusting my booking when I realized I had selected the wrong date the night before, which I greatly appreciated. The tour itself was spectacular! We started on time, and the explanations throughout were clear and engaging. The snowmobiling was thrilling and truly memorable. The scenery was beyond what any camera could capture, vastly different from the popular Golden Circle photos. Our guide was not only friendly and welcoming but also highly professional. On our way back, he shared stories about his life in Iceland, which not only added a personal touch but also deepened my connection with Iceland, making me feel more than just an observer. I regret that the group was small and everyone was a bit tired after thesnowmobiling, so we couldn’t respond as enthusiastically as he deserved. I am truly grateful for such a wonderful experience.

Our excursion around the Golden Circle with the snowmobiling was absolutely fantastic and I would recommend this to everyone. Even with the weather not on our side, with it being very misty, and wet, (this made visibility poor, but what can you do..) it was still an great experience and one we’ll take with us forever. Our guide - Gunnar - was fantastic. Very knowledgeable, excellent storyteller, and we couldn’t believe that he knew exactly where our hometown was, and could tell us stories about the place! He was friendly, and kind. Would highly recommend this tour when in Iceland.

Breathtaking scenery on the glacier! The ride in the jeep was awesome, Inki, our guide, drives mega and has a lot of experience off-road and a cool playlist during the ride! As the weather was so good and because we were a small group, Inki did an extra tour with us and we ended up snowmobiling longer than expected. This experience was unbelievable!

Amazing to be able to ride a snowmobile!! With a super friendly guide and the two “instructors” who accompanied us during the snowmobile was incredible!

Felt very safe. Amazing experience. Worth the extra money. Guide fantastic
