This experience was well worth waking up early for! Our guide for the golden circle portion of this tour, Karen, was friendly, knowledgeable and we really enjoyed hearing her personal anecdotes! I was a little nervous for the snowmobiling but it was an incredible experience, being on the glacier was breathtaking and the hour of driving in the snow was very fun. We would recommend this activity to everyone. Just to note though, if you speak English there is no need to bring headphones.

WOW! What an unbelievable trip. It was amazing to see the beautiful sights of Reykjavik and you had more than enough time at each location to fully appreciate the views and the wonderful country that is Iceland. My advice is to DEFINITELY book the snowmobiling alongside the Golden Circle trip - it may seem expensive but it’s hard to even describe how surreal the views are and how much fun this was. Definitely a highlight of our holiday!

Wohoooo! This was beyond expectation, an incredible fun and educational ride over the glacier. We were two adults and two kids and recommend this tour to everyone. Don’t worry if you wonder if you’ll be able to operate the snowmobile, it’s easy: throttle with your right thumb and brake with your left hand. No gear or clutch involved. If you are able to operate one of these shared electric city scooters you’ll be totally fine. Have fun!

Beginning of the tour was sightseeing .Lunch was quite rushed as we were then passed over to the Mountain Guide who was to take us on the Snow Mobile . This was great and really made the tour .. Taken up into the glacier .The views were fantastic .25 or so minutes one was , a 5 minute stop then we headed back .

Super tour with skilled and humorous guide. Control the security! Nice trip
