Super Truck experience
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.
Then, midway through your adventure, our friendly guide will take you into a majestic natural ice cave: formed over thousands of years. This will allow you to get a whole new perspective on glaciers and is of course a great chance to snap a couple of photos. We will spend around 15 minutes exploring the incredible ice cave and then get back out on to the snow, for some more adrenaline filled fun. Once we return to our base camp, we will take the scenic drive back to Gullfoss: the perfect end to the perfect day. This tour is an unbeatable combination of natural beauty and snow filled fun: you are guaranteed to form a load of memories, which you will treasure for the rest of your life. So book our snowmobiling and cave exploring adventure today, trust us you won’t regret it!
