Driving Directions

You have to be at the Gullfoss Waterfall upper parking lot 15 min before your departure time,12:30, to meet your guide for the tour. Driving from Reykjavík takes around 90-110 min to the Gullfoss, driving nonstop at the maximum speed rate of 90 km per hour, but this is not doable, so please make sure you calculate enough time for your drive.

If you intend to visit the Golden Circle with all its amazing sites before meeting your guide at 12:30 at Gullfoss, you will have to leave Reykjavík no later than 7:00 AM. There are two ways to reach the Gullfoss Waterfall:

Express Route:

Drive road no. One east from Reykjavík (the direction of Hveragerði). Once you are passed Hveragerði take a left turn just before the town of Selfoss and drive up road no. 35 (direction Geysir). Drive road no. 35 for approx. 50 min until you reach the intersection of the road no. 35 and the road no. 37, turn right and keep driving road no. 35.  You will pass Geysir hot springs and keep driving without making any turns and arrive at the upper parking lot at the Gullfoss waterfall 15 minutes later.

Golden Circle Route:

Drive road no. One north from Reykjavík,  just outside Mosfellsbær suburb take a right turn up road no. 36 (direction Þingvellir). Drive to Þingvellir National Park and make a sight-seeing stop there. From Þingvellir keep driving road no. 36 for 10 minutes until you make a left turn up road no. 365 (direction Laugavatn). Drive for 25 minutes until you reach an intersection at the town of Laugavatn, take a left turn up road no. 37. Drive for 25 minutes until you reach Geysir hot springs; make a stop there for sightseeing. From Geysir drive towards the highlands on the road no. 35 (road no. 37 becomes road no. 35 just before Geysir) for 10 minutes without making any turns. Arrive at the Gullfoss Waterfall upper parking lot and meet your guide.

  1. Overall experience was great

    We went on this trip as a family, each and everyone of us had a great time on the glacier and on the way up to theglacier. Really recommend this excursion for everyone.

  2. A great start to our Icelandic journey

    We really loved starting our icelandic journey with some cold and snow, this day was one of many highlights in Iceland. Although I felt like the ride was less than an hour long like it was advertised. I believe we were only about 50 minutes on the snowmobiles. Just the same it was really fun and I could have been there for 5 hours if I had the chance!

  3. Glacier Snowmobiling from Gullfoss. Really enjoyable

    I cannot recommend this company enough! We were treated with so much kindness. Everything from the booking process, where we had way too many questions and to the tour it self. =)
    It showed that these guys really loved what they do, it shined through.

    Me and my husband shared a snowmobile. The only thing I regret is not taking the single rider option. Next time! 🙂

    We were provided with warm snow suits that went over our clothes that kept us warm. The guides were extremely informative and funnny!

    The view on top of the glacier was like you see in the movies, at least for me :):) We felt really safe in the hands of these professional guides. I highly recommend this company and this experience, would go with them again no question.

  4. Greatest day ever

    it is safe to say that driving the snowmobile up on the glacier was one of the greatest time of my life. Cant recommend this trip enough.

  5. Brilliant tour

    We decided to get picked up from Gullfoss because we wanted to explore the Golden circle afterwards. The view was amazing. snowmobile was really fun and we even got the chance to swap drivers because we didnt book single riders.
    Very happy with the day.

  6. Great company

    Really liked the tour

  7. Really special experience!
