Take your golden circle tour the next level and do it in a super jeep & buggy combo! The sights of the Golden circle include Þingvellir national park where the original parliament, Althingi, was founded. The national park lies in a rift valley which marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic ridge. The rift is clearly visible and the movement of the tectonic plates pulls the island apart about 2,5 cm every year. The mighty Geysir is a dormant hot spring, and the one who gave all geysers their name. His little brother, Strokkur, erupts about every 4-8 minutes, sprouting the hot water 15 to 20 meters high and sometime up to 40 meters. Gullfoss, or the “Golden falls”, originates in the glacier river Hvítá. You can clearly witness the majestic power of the glacier rivers, in this three tiered flowing waterfall. Kick the action into gear, get off the paved roads and head towards the cold Langjökull glacier. Buckle up, because the drive might get a bit bumpy, as you drive rough mountain roads up to the glacier’s edge. Conditions permitting, you will drive onto the glacier itself and experience it from the interior; you may even be able to get out of the car and touch it! Somewhere along the way, we will stop for the 1 hr Buggy ride, where you have the opportunity to get the rally feeling and the adrenaline pumping. Sitting side by side with your buddy, we will drive dirt roads and tracks you can’t get by regular cars; action not to be missed. The location of the buggy tour depends on the season and conditions each day.
