Exciting 10-Hour Golden Circle and Glacier Monster Truck Tour Departing from Reykjavik
Discover Iceland's top bucket list attractions and enjoy an exhilarating monster truck adventure on this 10-hour guided tour from Reykjavik. Travelers keen to marvel at the famous Golden Circle attractions, followed by the vast icy expanse of the Langjokull glacier, should book this tour now.
Your bus departs from Reykjavik's central BSI bus terminal at 9 am. Full of anticipation, you'll head off to the Golden Circle, Iceland's most famous driving route. Travelers love it for its proximity to the capital and spectacular and diverse natural wonders.
First, you'll visit the renowned Thingvellir National Park, where the world's oldest parliament, Althingi, was established in 930 AD.
The park sits on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates separate. This plate separation results in a stunning landscape of rock formations and fissures. You're not just in a national park but walking the path between two continents.
Next, you're off to the Geysir geothermal area, home to hot springs and geysers. The excitement in the air is palpable as everyone waits for the geyser Strokkur to erupt, a spectacular sight that occurs every 8-10 minutes. It's a powerful testament to Iceland's fiery underground energy.
Then, the bus continues to the Gullfoss waterfall. You've seen pictures, but nothing can prepare you for the raw power of this cascade. You feel the mist on your face as the water plunges into a deep gorge. Rainbows formed by the spray add a touch of magic to the scenery on sunny days.
Gullfoss is where your Golden Circle sightseeing tour ends, and your monster truck adventure begins. It's time to discover the Langjokull glacier in all its glory with an unforgettable experience.
The massive monster truck arrives, studded tires crunching on the gravel. Your 4-hour tour takes you to and across the Langjokull glacier, Iceland's second-largest ice cap.
As the truck rumbles across the snow and ice, your guide will point out glacier features like crevasses and meltwater rivers. The view from the truck's high vantage point is breathtaking. You'll have plenty of time to appreciate and photograph a wild, rugged landscape that's both beautiful and humbling.
After an unforgettable ride, you'll return to the truck for the journey back to Reykjavik, with an estimated arrival time of 7 pm.
