A great day out! The excursion was well organised with a very helpful and knowledgable guide ( Peter). The tour took us around The Golden Circle including visits to the National Park where we stopped at the lakeside to experience the beautiful views. Then we visited the Geyser area where we saw amazing explosive geysers blowing hot water and steam high into the sky. Our final stop on this part of the tour was at the beautiful Gullfoss waterfall which was simply breathtaking. We then transferred to a Monster Truck which took us up to the Glacier. Here we rode for an hour on the snowmobiles, across the glacier and through bleak and snowy conditions. It was totally thrilling! The guides were fantastic and whilst extremely cold and numbing of the fingers was a given, we thoroughly loved every second of the trip. We returned down the glacier and mountain back to our bus where the driver and guide took us back to Reykjavík. We learnt so much about Iceland from our guide. A brilliant day!

This experience was one of the most incredible things we’ve ever done. The golden circle is so fantastic but the snowmobiling on the glacier is just unbeatable. The time at each stops is short hit do get enough time to see everything. Our tour was delayed so I leave time to get back later than expected - especially if you have dinner plans or another tour. We went on one of the coldest days of the year and although the cold was so painful it was unbelievably beautiful - best bit of the trip.

Wow I have no words to describe this trip. The most magical day that created memories that will last a lifetime. The Geysir’s was amazing and the snowmobiling was perfect, perfect skies, friendly tour guides and so well organised, I have never experienced anything like it. The bus tour guide was so friendly and helpful.
