Golden Circle, Snowmobiling and Friðheimar Farm
The Golden Circle includes some of the most compelling attractions in the country, and offers you the chance to walk in the steps of the Vikings at the incredible Þingvellir, the site of the world’s first parliament.
Characterised by a deep chasm between tectonic plates and views of distant, snow-capped mountains, it’s a truly fascinating stop off before you head to one of Iceland’s most awe-inspiring sights.
Gulfoss is one of the most powerful and imposing waterfalls in the world, falling 32m down a number of steps into a canyon with walls up to 70m tall, it’s a must-see on any trip to Iceland.
Standing on the viewing deck and feeling the spray from the glacial river plunging over a precipice is a chance to experience the true power of nature.
Finish the Golden Circle with a trip to Geysir, the infamous (no-longer erupting) hot spring, and it’s little brother Strokkur, that has erupts with a magical display every 10-15 minutes.
Drive on to meet your snowmobiling team and begin exploring the vast ice-fields and glacier of Langjökull, one of the last true wildernesses in Europe, exploring an entirely alien, but beautiful landscape.
Finish the day with a trip to Friðheimar Tomato Farm, where the ever-ingenious Icelanders have created a huge greenhouse farm using geothermal heat. Try some of the produce, and the wonderful tomato soup then head back to your hotel and perhaps relax in a hot tub at the end of a long day of adventures.
Hotel Grimsborgir (5* Hotel)
This luxury hotel was built in 2009, with new accommodation blocks added in 2013 and 2014. It has an ideal location for our adventure, right in the heart of the Golden Circle, very close to some of Iceland’s amazing natural phenomena and breath taking scenery such as Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir National Park.
