Reykjavik - Selfoss
We will start the tour at the Arctic Trucks headquarters in Reykjavík where the Arctic Trucks team will teach you how to drive in different conditions, airing down the tires, driving through rivers and in other off-road conditions. In the morning we will get onboard on the Polar vehicles and go to the Golden Circle. Our first stop is at Thingvellir National Park, home of Iceland's ancient Viking parliament and listed as a Unesco's World Heritage site.
After that we'll head east to Lyngdalsdalsheiði following a mountain road with great views of the mountain range and the lake. At Haukadalur, home of the great Geysir, the reliable Strokkur geyser erupts every few minutes. This incredible hot spring spouts boiling water to a height of 25 to 35 meters. Next we head up to the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall cascading down in the Hvítá river originating in the Langjökull glacier.
Optional extra activity on this day is a snowmobile ride on Langjökull. In the afternoon we will head to our cottages for a BBQ dinner and a relaxing bath in the hot tub.
