Langjokull, is an absolutely stunning location: rimmed by Volcanos, it also contains two gigantic ice filled craters: the remains of ones that have gone extinct. Langjokull, also provides stunning views of some of Iceland’s most majestic sights: the Eiríksjökull glacier, created during a volcanic eruption in the last ice age, it is the largest table mountain in Iceland; the Hofsjökull glacier (temple glacier), so named due to its beautiful domed peek; and the Kerlingarfjöll mountain range, one of the largest geothermal areas in all of Europe. A snowmobiling trip across the Langjokull, is an unforgettable experience and definitely something to cross off your bucket list.
