Your first stop is at Þingvellir National Park, which is one of Iceland's most significant historical sites because it was here that Iceland's first parliament was founded in 930 AD. In addition it is the area where the two tectonic plates of North America and Europe meet.

From Þingvellir you head along mountain tracks towards the world-renowned geothermal area of the Geysir hot springs, this is where the name originates for all geysers across the world! From here you continue on to Gullfoss Waterfall which is also known as the "the Golden waterfall". This waterfall is one of the most stunning in all of Iceland and you can get very close to the water, and as a result, very wet!

After lunch at the local café overlooking the falls, you will kick the action into a higher gear and trundle over rocky terrain to reach Langjökull - Iceland's second largest glacier. Provided with suits, gloves and helmets you can kick the action into a higher gear and go snowmobiling - this is a great adrenalin fix, and the views are astounding, provided the weather behaves itself!

The superjeeps you travel in are specially formatted 4x4 vehicles and are the only types that are able to cross the terrain to reach the glacier. This excursion is a firm favourite of Original Travel's and is a great way to immerse yourself in Iceland's wild scenery and fascinating geology.
