I did the Glacier Snowmobiling and Ice Cave Tour from Reykjavik and it was wonderful! I was picked up from the bus stop by Hallgrímskirkja, taken out to the parking lot of the Golden Falls, changed into a super bus (giant snow tires) and then driven out to what looked like airplane hangers buried in the snow. We all got changed into our snowmobile gear, got a machine, and headed out for about a 45 minute drive, across the glacier, to the back side of a mountain, and entrance to an ice cave. The ice cave was natural but had a good amount of man-made help to make it accessible. Definitely grab and extra pair of gloves and head gear, if you get any wind and the air is cold, it makes a HUGE difference.

Amazing experience! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about diving and the area. He ensured the dry suite was properly worn, took hundreds of pictures, and navigated us through the dive site. Most memorable experience in Iceland! Highly recommend Nick for your guide!

This tour took place in December 2019 Most likely the best tour I have ever been part of. If there is only one tour you can take on your trip to Iceland, choose this one. And in this order, that is to say, end it at the Secret Lagoon (the best way to end a beautiful day-trip relaxing in these wonderful hot springs). If you are lucky to get a guide like the one I had, you will learn why the motorway out of Reykjavík towards Thingvellir National Park had to be built around a huge rock that was impossible to break (elves may have been the reason), that there are now 3.2 more cars in the whole of Iceland than five years ago, why the Secret Lagoon is called secret (has to do with men, back in the day, having their private and festive gatherings away from women), why is this called the Golden Circle (it may have to with the fact that tourists are 'golden'... a bit of irony on the guide's part, perhaps?), and many other historical, geographical and cultural details only a true Icelander would know. Did you know that what we commonly perceive as Northern Europeans were in fact "Men from the East" for Icelanders, back in the day? I did not :-) All the sites we visited during this tour are simply breathtaking. Cannot choose what I loved the most. The bus was impeccable (comfortable seats, perfectly heated throughout the whole trip); it was a small group tour, as advertised, there was no rush from one place to another, even though we were on a schedule. The tour was well-organized, had the best tour guide ever (what was is his nickname? Little John? Argh, cannot remember!), and it was even better than expected. If you like the official pictures, wait until you see everything with your own eyes. You will be visiting very emblematic places, so my tip for you is to read a little about all these places before you go. You will want to know where to point your camera and what you are really looking at. At the end, you will be able to say "I walked between the Eurasian and the North-American tectonic plates!" This is one tour you cannot say no to.
