Glacier Experience

09/5/2017

One of the most unforgettable experience we create is when we combine thrilling rides, unique activities and local meals. The Glacier Experience is all that and more.

We start the day by discovering the powerful Icelandic Super Jeeps, parked in front of the hotel and ready to welcome up to 8-14 passengers each.

These jeeps are unique, transformed in Iceland and mounted on 46” tyres, they have all necessary technical equipment for a true Expedition.

Driven by professional drivers, these jeeps enable us to cross-rivers and rough terrain, even climb glaciers.

On the glacier, another adventure awaits, it will be up to you and on your own snowmobile to reach the top of the  Europe’s second largest Glacier.  

 

Surrounded with 360 ° panoramic views we might as well enjoy the moment a little longer and enjoy a buffet served on snow carved tables. From Icelandic Hot dogs to traditional lamb soup, a truly Icelandic experience awaits …  

As this is a 10 hours day, we have set some comfort stops. On the way to the glacier we will stretch our legs down the canyon between the Euro-Asian & North American tectonic plates. This is the Thingvellir national park a UNESCO World heritage site.

Still on the way to the glacier, we take a break at Geysir. The name says it all, not only there are great shops and restroom facilities, you will be able to observe a hot spring spouting up to 30 meters high.

On the way back from the glacier to Reykjavik, right after a bumpy ride across snowfields and highland, we will stop by the majestic Gullfoss Waterfall.
