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.
