The highlight of our Iceland trip was the Pearl tour with Mountaineers of Iceland. It was everything you think of when you think of Iceland. The Pearl Tour is an Iceland adventure where you will experience some of Iceland’s most famous and exciting natural phenomena by exploring the Golden Circle, topped off with an unforgettable snowmobile tour on Langjökull glacier.
On the Golden Circle, you get to explore is Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the active Geysir Hot Spring area with its boiling mud pits and spouting hot springs and Gullfoss Waterfall(one of Iceland’s most powerful waterfalls).
The highlight of the trip for us was going on a snow mobile on Langjökull Glacier and dashing across snowfields on snowmobiles while gazing at the mountain peaks. It wasn’t just the highlight of our Iceland trip but our travel highlight of the year.
You are picked up from your stop between 8:30am – 9:00am. The tour operates all year round and takes approximately 9-10 hours. There is also a light lunch included in the trip. The trip includes a one hour snowmobile adventure.
WHAT TO BRING
