Private Luxury Golden Circle and Helicopter back to Reykjavik
Golden Circle and a Helicopter ride from The Langjokull Glacier to Reykjavik. This Private Luxury tour combines 2 of the best way to see Iceland by Superjeep and Helicopter.
Our first stop takes us to Thingvellir National Park where the Icelandic parliament was founded over 1000 years ago. At Thingvellir, you will see how the earth is ever so slowly pulling apart along the North-America and Eurasian tectonic plates and you will be able to stand where the Viking settlers stood centuries ago to edict national laws.
Next, you will visit the Geysir geothermal area in Haukadalur where you can see geysers, hot springs, steam vents, and eerie blue algae. Strokkur is one of the largest and most powerful geysers and erupts almost every 5 minutes.
The final stop of the Golden Circle takes you to Gullfoss waterfall, which many consider being the queen of Icelandic waterfalls, as it is both high and mighty and stumbles dramatically in a deep gorge. We then have a lunch break at Gullfoss Cafe, before trying out our Superjeep vehicles off-road: the ride will take you to the highlands, rough terrain and glacier area of Langjokull (Icelandic for "long glacier"), known to be the second largest ice cap in Iceland (953 km2). You will enjoy the landscape from your Superjeep while occasionally stopping next incredible sights.
After an off-road ride, we visit by Faxi, a small but beautiful waterfall before driving back to Reykjavik.
We reserve the right to reverse the circle to escape the crowds.
