Tour Description

snowmobile tour from gullfoss

A super truck will drive you from Gullfoss Café

We will begin your snowmobiling adventure by collecting you from Gulfoss café: next to the majestic Gulfoss Waterfall (Golden waterfall). 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.

The Glacier Snowmobiling From Gullfoss 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.

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!

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!

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!!

"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"

Snowmobiling was a blast, guide was awesome, and I have already recommended extreme Iceland to friends.

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!

Awesome experience

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!!

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!

WOW

We had a great day!!!!

"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!"

N ICE FUN

5 by Barry & Sharon February 1, 2019
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.

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!

Snowmobiling fun!

5 by Liane October 9, 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 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!

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
