Iceland Luxury Tours – Golden Circle Snowmobile Tour

We headed off at 9:00 AM and the weather was superb, the sun was coming up and no clouds visible. After visiting Thingvellir national park and the Geysir geothermal area we headed to Langjokull glacier where the snowmobiles waited purring in the crisp white snow reflected the sunlight. This video clip was shot on the way back down from Langjokull and you can see the Gullfoss area straight ahead right below the snowline. When we got back to Gullfoss we had the classic lamb meat soup at Gullfoss Café which was delicious as usual and then headed back to Reykjavik with a short stop at Kerid crater lake in Grimsnes.

Iceland Tours to See Natural Wonders

Iceland Tours to See Natural Wonders

Article by Vikki Beale

Escorted tours to Iceland’s unusual countryside are a great way to discover this wonderful landscape. You can take tours of Iceland’s valleys, fjords, lava fields, mountains, waterfalls and geysers, as well as its cultural sites. Iceland guided tours provide a perfect introduction to this interesting destination.

Iceland’s countryside seems always to be changing. A field of ice one day could be a lake the next; a waterfall may be an icy trickle one day and a roaring stream another. Depending on the season, fjords may be dotted with islands among serene waters or jammed with strange sculptures of floating ice. With a landscape in flux, escorted tours to Iceland’s landmarks and geographical features are one of the best ways to learn about the interesting things you will see in this amazing country.

The Glaciers, Geysers & Waterfalls Tour

An example of a six-day escorted tour to Iceland is the ‘Glaciers, Geysers and Waterfalls’ tour, which packs many natural wonders into your Iceland holiday. You’ll tour Iceland’s national parks on the southern shore, including the breathtaking Skaftafell.

Skaftafell is a vast protected area with large volcanic mountains, open plains and the giant Vatnajökull, which is the largest mass of ice you are ever likely to see (unless you make it to the Arctic or Antarctic). Being the largest icecap in Europe, Iceland tours are sure to take you to see the dramatic glacial spurs at its edge.

Iceland guided tours will take you to the Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon in Skaftafell. On a sunny day, if you position yourself at the correct angle to the sun, the light will catch the sediments in the water and make the lagoon appear a spectacular turquoise. The icebergs can be many colours: sometimes they will appear dazzling white, or tainted with black volcanic dust, or glowing a bright blue. If the temperature is right you may see crystalline, clear ice shapes in the water.

In Hot Water

After all that ice, you may want your Iceland guided tour to warm you up a little. For this, you’ll visit a geothermal pool for an open air swim in waters heated by underground volcanic rock. This is a fun activity, and a common feature on many escorted tours to Iceland.

Waterfalls

The main waterfall you will see on Iceland guided tours is Gullfoss. Be amazed at the large volumes of water that fall over Gulfoss’s staggered steps and hammer into a deep crevice in the ground. As you can imagine, it is a popular site for visitors.

Planning an Iceland Tour

There’s no need to worry about organising accommodation since it will be arranged as part of the tours. Iceland’s tour guides speak English and are able to explain what you are seeing, describing the geological or cultural significance of the many landmarks you will come across.

Some operators of escorted tours to Iceland are able to adapt or modify their itineraries to suit what you would like to see, and have tour managers who will create an itinerary especially for you. This means you can put together tailor made Iceland tours based upon your choice of the destinations mentioned earlier, as well as many more.
