Tour Description

glacier snowmobile iceland

A fun and exciting glacier day

Your adventure begins when we collect you, in a super truck, from Gullfuss café (close to the spectacular Gullfoss waterfall). From there we will take the scenic journey to our base camp at the foot of Langjökull Glacier (long glacier). At that point we will give you all the equipment that you need and one of our certified glacier guides will demonstrate how to use it properly. Then after a quick safety briefing, you will be ready to get out onto the snow and see the vast Langjökull Glacier, in all its majestic glory.

Once you are on Langjökull, you will understand what all the fuss is about: a mesmerizing untouched natural beauty, covered in a blanket of perfect fluffy white snow. It is the second biggest glacier in Iceland and is surrounded by some of Iceland’s most incredible sights: including: Eiríksjökull glacier, a giant table mountain formed during the last ice age; Hofsjökull glacier (temple glacier) and its famous domed peek; and the multi-coloured Kerlingarfjöll Mountains. All of which offer amazing photo opportunities, alongside the fun of playing in the snow.

Amazing Day!!!

The Snowmobile to the Ice Cave tour was outstanding! The ride to the base camp on the super truck starts the adventure off on the right foot. Staff was friendly and efficient with getting us kitted out for the ride across the glacier. Conditions were perfect with blue bird skies and loads of snow to fly across. As a first timer on a snowmobile, I found the instruction was thorough and in not time at all, I was having an absolute BLAST driving it with my son (8yrs) on the back. The ride to the ice cave was just long enough to be ready for a break. The location of the cave was impressive on its own but then we get down into it and its like nothing I've ever experienced in my life. Stunning natural beauty for this once in a lifetime experience. Our guide was informative and funny and ready to answer any questions that went his way. After my mind was blown by this natural wonder, it was back on the snowmobiles to head back to base camp for hot drinks and cookies. This is the tour to do and this is the company to do it with!

Well worth tour

The whole experience was amazing

White-out adventure

I have never been snowmobiling before so I was really looking forward to this adventure as well as walking on the glacier and hiking an ice cave. Unfortunately, due to the weather we were unable to get on the glacier and hike the ice cave. While it was disappointing, I was totally understandable as the weather was intense with freezing fog. The tour guides had our safety in mind and I was thankful for that. We still got to ride the snowmobiles for about an hour and see some of the beautiful scenery when the fog briefly lifted. It was so much fun. The trip up to and back from the glacier in the mega buses is half the fun, but can be somewhat nauseating if you are prone to car sickness.

An exhilarating experience

We (family of 4 - 2 boys aged 14&12) had an absolutely fantastic time on this trip. The tour guides met us on time and were efficient at getting us all on the big wheeled bus to go up onto the glacier. The journey up there was fascinating (if somewhat bumpy!) and our guide told us lots of information about the glacier. We arrived at the base on the glacier and were kitted out speedily, and given a quick demo on how to use the snowmobiles. Then we sped off across the glacier - such a buzz! The ice cave was beautiful and we had ample time to take photos. We were really lucky to have a perfect day with blue skies and bright sunshine. The journey back on the snowmobiles was even speedier and really good fun. There was hot chocolate and coffee waiting for us back at the hut, which was very welcome. I can recommend wearing gloves under the mittens you are given because it's pretty cold! Even though this trip seemed massively expensive when I booked it, I would recommend it without a second thought. When you get there you realise why it costs so much to run this kind of excursion! Thank you to all of the guides for a very memorable day.
