Golden Circle Glacier | Super Jeep Private Tour

Would you like a personal tour to the Golden Circle? Join us in our 4×4 super jeep adventure to this popular attraction, adding a visit to a glacier near Reykjavik, Glacier Langjökull. Meet our friendly and accommodating guide and enjoy this unforgettable tour in Iceland.

This is definitely Iceland’s must-see! We travel in the comfort of our modified 4×4 trucks. The first destination is the stunning Thingvellir National Park, where Iceland’s first parliament, Althingi, was founded in the year 930 AD. It has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2004. We cross the mountain pass of Lyngdalsheiði to reach Lake Laugarvatn which is surrounded by geothermal activity.

From there we carry on and admire Iceland’s most famous waterfall, Gullfoss Falls. After a lunch stop (food not included in the tour price) we go seriously off-road on the mountain tracks to the imposing Glacier Langjökull. Driving on the glacier itself will depend on ice conditions. After  that we discover the famous Geysir hot spring. You will see the geyser Strokkur erupt regularly every 4-8 minutes.

There will be a number of secret stops as well, but we can’t tell you about it. “Only Guide knows” …

The BEST and only way to really see Iceland

During our cruise to Iceland my husband and I decided to book a private tour with a local company rather than relying on the cruise line during our time in Reykjavik. After a lot of researching we decided to book with Discover Iceland, which turned out to be a brilliant decision….

The ONLY way to see Iceland

I cannot say enough good things about Discover Iceland. The office was very responsive and informative while booking tours and the guides were all extremely nice, professional, and fearless when it came to the snow-covered roads in blizzard-like conditions. We had the fearless Orri and his amazing “super-jeep” Joy for two tours (Golden Circle with snowmobiles and Southern Coast) …

Landmannalaugar & Golden Circle | 2 day Private Tour

Iceland in winter is mega cool, and has certainly a lot to offer. We therefore present to you the “Landmannalaugar & Golden Circle Tour”, available only during winter (Nov – May)

Included in this tour is sleeping bag accommodation and Icelandic traditional dinner in the end of day 1 as well as breakfast.  

If you want to enjoy snow and an exciting off-road trip on a super jeep with huge tires, sleeping in a mountain hut in the middle of nowhere and eat traditional Icelandic food, then this is the trip for you. We will always be ready for the northern lights if they show up. The itinerary and group accommodations lend well for a corporate trip or incentive travel, for example, though other groups are welcome too!

The Landmannalaugar in winter is a truly unique place. This environment is the natural habitat of super jeeps and adventures. There will be snow for sure, just all over the place.

Let’s enjoy the diversity of this off-road destination, with its volcanoes, lava fields, and geothermal pool. One of our unique stops is the waterfall Þjófafoss with its interesting viking history (click on the map’s icons for further information). We drive through the great valley of Dómadalur and from there we drive near the infamous volcano Hekla and visit volcano Krakatindur. When we have enjoyed the spectacular scenery from these volcanoes we head off to Landmannalaugar where you can jump into the natural geothermal pool or enjoy some easy hiking in the mountains.

It’s great if you have brought your own lunch pack. But if not, we will make a stop along the way where you can buy it, since there’s no real shopping to be done once we’ve arrived to our destination. Our route on the 4×4 minibus takes us to Waterfall Hjálparfoss, where once upon a time horses and men were able to rest after a long journey. We’ll take you to the paradisaical valley of Gjáin. Water cascades in all directions. Then we have an impressive waterfall called Sigöldufoss. We’ll then visit the Crater Lake Bláhylur, which has been nick-named “Blue Pool” Crater. It’s also known as Hnausapollur, but that’s certainly more difficult to pronounce in Icelandic.

Once in Landmannalaugar we start to see the famous rhyolite mountains and their strong colors, reminding us of a painter’s palette. Since this tour is in summer, we recommend you to do the easy hike (see the pictures), which should take about 1.5 – 2 hours, depending on how many photos you take. And if you have time and you want, there’s the geothermal pool too. Don’t forget your towel and swim suit!

This is a long day tour, and we hope you will enjoy it just like a kid! :)

Contact us at info@discover.is if you can’t find tour availability for your selected date. We may be able to arrange for an extra departure, if the minimum is met (4 adults). We also have our super jeep tour – book here if you want to upgrade.

REVIEW: “Landmannalaugar”

“Although relatively expensive this trip proved to be the highlight of a fantastic holiday. Travelling in March, the F208 road was completely hidden by snow, but with an incredible 4 by 4 and driver we navigated some of the most awesome scenery of mountains, lava fields, rivers and volcanoes…

REVIEW: “Worth travelling to Iceland just to tour with this company”

“[…] I don’t want to risk any plot spoilers for future passengers so I won’t say what he drove us over or through but it was immense fun, utterly exhilarating… we’re both still excited by the experience. Our thanks to Discover Iceland, to Reynir and to Stefan for helping us to make life-long memories. This all meant a great deal to the two of us. Truly, it would have been worth flying to Iceland just to go on tour with them.
