Tour Description

A super truck will drive you from Gullfoss Café

We pick you up in Reykjavik and drive towards the glacier. On the way you will be able to take in the views as we travel across Iceland’s scenic countryside to the Langjökull glacier.

From there we will take the scenic journey to Langjökull glacier: a wonderful way to see a wild and untouched part of Iceland. Once we arrive at our mobile glacier base camp, you will be provided with all the equipment that you need to go snowmobiling: overalls, gloves and a helmet, but even so remember to dress up warm! Then you will meet your certified glacier guide, who will teach you how to operate a snowmobile safely, before you can officially get out onto the Glacier.

Our Glacier Snowmobiling tour is a scenic and fun glacier tour and perfect for those that have their own car and can meet us directly at Gullfoss!

snowmobile tour on langjokull glacier

Get your adrenaline pumping on the glacier!

Langjökull (The Long Glacier) will quite literally take your breath away: it is gigantic, whilst at the same time being completely devoid of human life; Langjökull, is the very definition of unspoilt beauty. Langjökull, is covered in a blanket of perfect white snow, and is home to several huge ice-filled volcanic craters, which contrast magnificently with the commanding volcanoes that surround the glacier: when you see Langjökull you will understand why Iceland is nicknamed the land of fire and ice.

The views from the edges of Langjökull, are no less stunning: in this distance you will see the Eiríksjökull glacier, created during a volcanic eruption in the last ice age, it is the largest table mountain in Iceland and the largest mountain in western Iceland. You will also see the Hofsjökull glacier (temple glacier), so named due to its beautiful domed peek. Between these two amazing glaciers lies the Kerlingarfjöll mountain range, one of the largest geothermal areas in all of Europe: the Kerlingarfjöll Mountains are famous for how colourful they are and provide a remarkable contrast to the two glaciers.

An hour spent snowmobiling on the Langjökull will be an unforgettable experience: providing exhilarating fun against one of the world’s most unique backdrops. It is perfect for anyone who has their own car and is able meet us directly at Gullfoss.

Just epic

5 by Britt March 15, 2019
The snowmobile tour was heaps of fun. Even the drive to the glacier on the mega Sprinter was ace - such awesome vehicles. Very well run tour with knowledgeable and friendly guides. The snowmobiles were super fun and gave you the chance to get out into the epic scenery of the glacier. Inclusion of visiting the ice cave topped off the tour... awesome! Next time we’ll be booking a multi-day snowmobile tour!

Excellent!!!

5 by Lorraine Lomas March 12, 2019
This is my 3rd-time snowmobiling with Extreme Iceland/Arctic Adventures. Each time has been amazing. The weather varied between sun and snow showers. The ice cave is stunning. Brilliant guides each time who made sure to go out of their way to ensure your experience was good. Enough stops for comfort so quickly got to see Geyser and Gulfoss, that's half the Golden Circle included lol. Will definitely use again next year.

Great tour & guide

5 by Nicole March 1, 2019
"We had a great time of this tour. Snowmobiling was fun even though the temperature was a little warm and it was raining getting to and from the site. Our guide made the trip even better. So friendly and he would tell us information about locations we were passing to and from the snowmobile location. I don't recall his exact name, Andrei I believe. Great trip! Thanks!"

We had a great day!!!!

5 by Wenkemann February 18, 2019
"The snowmobile tour was an amazing experience. Espacially the guides were really goo, funny and capable. Even if it took almost 3 hours to get back to the parking lot (because a bus of the competition was stuck in the snow), it was a great day. Thanks a lot for this experience!"

Super experience with an awesome team (guide)

5 by Geoffrey February 9, 2019
"We really enjoyed our tour with Extreme Iceland, the guide (and the team) was awesome, nice and friendly. We highly recommend them! We stayed 4 days in Iceland, the 2nd day with Extreme Iceland and the 3rd day with another tour company. We cross Extreme Iceland doing the Golden Circle (as us). We were a bit sad we didn't do it again with them as the Guide looked so nice and funny! Thanks, Extreme Iceland"

N ICE FUN

My wife and I booked this experience on-line, nice and easy to book, although first thought a bit expensive, for what you get, soon realized it was worth every penny. Great fun and knowledgable guides. Would recommend to friends.

The most unforgettable experience

5 by Karolina arutyunyan January 23, 2019
This was the most fantastic trip, real bucket list type of experience. I couldn’t praise this tour enough. The highlight of the trip. The snowmobile was such fun and the glacier cave absolutely mind-blowing! What a fantastic day that we will remember forever, so glad we chose to do this!!! Thank you Extreme Iceland!

Awesome tour!

5 by Mary January 20, 2019
We had an absolutely amazing time. Definitely, recommend the tour. Unfortunately, we were unable to go into the ice caves due to weather conditions, but it was still an amazing experience.

Brilliant

4 by Vicki Watkins January 13, 2019
Had a fantastic time, the guides were brilliant, ensuring we were safe and together at all times. It was scary weather so I felt very reassured by their professional and well organised approach. I would have liked a smaller group But that day it was probably safety in numbers! Thank you

Pure Icelandic Fun

5 by Matt Favero January 13, 2019
I took my wife, her friend and our 8-year-old daughter on this amazing snowmobile experience. Our time spent snowmobiling on the glacier was absolutely awesome! Even when the weather took a turn for the worse and the snow started coming in sideways, our guides made sure we were safe and we never felt like we were in danger. We’ve been telling all our friends about our crazy adventure ever since we returned home! We recommend this tour.

First time snowmobiling and it was amazing

5 by Ronisha Arzu December 19, 2018
"Snowmobiling and the ice cave tour was definitely the highlight of my Iceland trip. The tour guides were very helpful and attentive. The ride to the cave and back was amazing. I had such a great time I would totally recommend this tour. Oh and also n our way back we had cookies and hot chocolate waiting for us. I thought that was very sweet"

Really well-organized tour, very friendly and enthusiastic tour guides! Would highly recommend :)

Brilliant day

5 by Rose November 14, 2018
Brilliant tour, I was worried about the travel from Reykjavik but the mini bus was very comfortable and we stopped off at the Gullfoss waterfall on the way which was great as we hadn't seen this on our trip. The tour guides were very nice and told us lots about Iceland and the glacier on the journey. The snowmobiling was great fun, we stopped at the ice caves half way which was great to see and then on the way back it had gone dark which was great fun riding a snowmobile in the dark on a glacier. After that, there was coffee, hot chocolate, and biscuits at the base where they showed us on a map the root we just traveled. I was worried about the cold but to be honest with all the layers we had worn and suits provided we were actually too warm if anything. Great fun, highly recommends really unique experience on our Iceland trip.

Snowmobiling

5 by Oliver family November 3, 2018
Thanks for a fantastic tour.. a real highlight of our trip. We had previously snowmobiled in Canada and had struggled with conditions there but this was a completely different experience and much more enjoyable. Discovering the ice cave was amazing. It would have been good at base camp to have had smaller engine snowmobiles for our 2 boys ages 10 and 12 and too young to drive the adult snowmobiles to try out as they were desperate to have a go!

Great trip!

5 by Mariska October 25, 2018
"We did a snowmobile excursion and had a great time the whole hour on the glacier! It is so beautiful to see the glacier this way, we have great memories of this dayThe trip was full of unexpected delays, but that was handeled very well by offering us coffee/tea while waiting on the Super Jeep to start again. Special thanks to Ron for explaining the handles of the mobile in Dutch to my dad who doesn't speak English."

Best experience of a lifetime

5 by Christina October 19, 2018
This was absolutely one of the most incredible experiences! The guides were excellent and made you feel so comfortable while stepping out of your comfort zone! Everyone should do this!

Snowmobiling fun!

5 by Liane October 9, 2018
Snowmobiling was very fun. Beautiful glacier scenery. Would highly recommend!

Excellent tour! highly recommended

5 by nori wittenzellner October 4, 2018
We booked the snowmobiling tour on the glacier with Extreme Iceland. They were very professional and it was one of the highlights of our trip.

Great experience!

5 by Richard Daniel September 23, 2018
We really enjoyed our snowmobile tour. My wife had never driven one before and she thought it was easy to ride and drive and a total blast. We were fortunate to have great weather when we were on the glacier very little snow and very icy but that was no problem riding across the glacier. The crew, equiptment, etc. are all first class. Thanks!

Awesome experience!

5 by NiX September 12, 2018
Man, the size of that glacier is just mind-boggling. Such a great experience. Definitely, do not pass this up! The drive up is a tour in and of itself! Great guides, great snowmobiles, super safe and super fun!

Snowmobiling on the glacier... amazing!

5 by Sebastiano Leoni September 10, 2018
"Great experience that I would recommend to all those who want a little adventure to remember, not only for the driving of the snowmobile itself but also for the impressive glacier that surrounds you. All the organization of the tour went very smoothly, guides were expert, polite and ready to help while you get confident with the snowmobile. The driving itself can be a little hard while changing direction, but it's something that gets easier driving the snowmobile using the body or standing. The route followed is basically well defined and guides are leaving sufficient freedom as long as you drive in safe conditions. The duration of the whole experience is quite right, there's all the time to enjoy the immensity of the glacier and take your pics. I also found one helmet with the GoPro fastening, so I could use it!"

Favorite thing!

5 by Sierra September 9, 2018
This snowmobiling excursion was my favorite thing I did on my trip to Iceland. It was a beautiful drive up to the glacier with great views and fun facts and anecdotes from Martise, our very friendly guide. I would highly recommend this to anybody wanting something a bit more adventurous and who wants to get even further and closer to nature than other tours. Riding around on the glacier was exciting and fairly easy after learning the snowmobile controls (it was my first time on a snowmobile). 10/10 would recommend!

5 by Jean Neubauer August 16, 2018
My son and I did the glacier snowmobile trip on 8/9/18, and we both had an awesome time! All "do's and don'ts" were explained and demonstrated well by our guide, and our gear and snowmobile were in great shape. It was really my top experience while in Iceland! Thank you!!

Awesome trip. Better than expected. Can’t miss this trip when in Iceland.

Snowmobiling in July

5 by Houston Travelers August 6, 2018
The tour guides were very patient and kind. We had a great time. Although I am not an adventure seeker, I went along to accompany by child and husband. They had a wonderful time and truly enjoyed the experience. And I was certainly able to drive the snowmobile despite my aversion to risk taking activities! Some members of the group preferred to go very quickly and they were accompanied by one tour guide. The other tour guide remained in the back with the slower drivers. I have to say that the drive up to base camp and the glacier was pretty fun and was an experience in of itself!

Loved snowmobiling

5 by Tina July 30, 2018
Great experience. Crazy ride in the super Jeep.

Awesome experience on the glacier

5 by Tania July 24, 2018

"This Glacier snowmobile trip was the highlight of the trip to Iceland for my sons and daughter in law, so glad it was the last thing they did before heading home, back to Australia because nothing could have measured up to this expiriance according to them ... Thank you Artic Adventure"

Thrilling

5 by John D July 1, 2018
Beautiful people, beautiful place....first time in Iceland. Not a week home and already planning to return next year.

What a rush!

5 by Bharker June 30, 2018
There is nothing I’ve experienced like being on a glacier with only 12-15 other people and feeling the adrenaline in God’s beauty. The guide’s were very responsive and educational. I would recommend in heartbeat!

So much fun

5 by Jill June 8, 2018
Snowmobiling was a blast, guide was awesome, and I have already recommended extreme Iceland to friends.

Glacier Snowmobiling

5 by Gordon April 30, 2018
I had an amazing experience snowmobiling with this company. Great Service. Highly recommended. The staff is very professional. Our driver (Arni) was very entertaining. It's not every day that I can go snowmobiling across a glacier in Iceland but I will be doing it again later this year with the same company. If you are in doubt about prices you will realize after that it's worth every penny. Book it and go. - Gordon from N.Ireland.

Snowmobiling

5 by Charlene April 3, 2018
From start to finish this was one of the best experiences ever! Worth every cent. Tour guide was fantastic, funny and very knowledgeable. Also, very safety conscious. Super jeep was bumpy but alot of fun and had beautiful views. Snowmobiling itself was just amazing, very safe and quite the adrenaline rush! Also, the coffee & cookies after we finished was a really nice touch. I would do this tour again, it was that good! Highly recommend.

WOW

5 by Mike March 9, 2018
Guides were constantly keeping track of everyone out on the skis, felt safe the whole time, even in the insane winds on the glacier. Such a great experience!!
