"We went on the snowmobile and ice cave experience. Started off with a fun ride up to the glacier in their large truck. Then after being kitted our we drove out on snowmobiles to an ice cave. The ice cave was fascinating. Highly recommended."


Tour Description

glacier snowmobile iceland

A fun and exciting glacier day

We will start our journey bright and early when we collect you from your accommodation in Reykjavik (please note that collection can take up to 30 minutes depending on your location). We will then take the scenic cross-country journey to our base camp on Langjökull Glacier

If you have your own car you can meet us at Gullfoss 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) in a specially modified super jeep! 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 peak; and the multi-colored Kerlingarfjöll Mountains. All of which offer amazing photo opportunities, alongside the fun of playing in the snow.

The ice formations in the cave are amazing!

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!

Glacier Snowmobiling

5 by Emma Parr April 7, 2018
Had a fantastic trip- best thing we did in Iceland, went up to the Gullfoss cafe for lunch and a wander down to the waterfall before the trip,friendly guides,amazing scenery that you just wouldn’t experience at ground level! The ice cave stop was also really interesting. Really professional and passionate company would recommend to all :)

Amazing Day!!!

5 by Julia Beynon April 7, 2018
The Snowmobile to the Ice Cave tour was outstanding! The ride to the base camp on the super truck starts the adventure off on the right foot. Staff was friendly and efficient with getting us kitted out for the ride across the glacier. Conditions were perfect with blue bird skies and loads of snow to fly across. As a first timer on a snowmobile, I found the instruction was thorough and in not time at all, I was having an absolute BLAST driving it with my son (8yrs) on the back. The ride to the ice cave was just long enough to be ready for a break. The location of the cave was impressive on its own but then we get down into it and its like nothing I've ever experienced in my life. Stunning natural beauty for this once in a lifetime experience. Our guide was informative and funny and ready to answer any questions that went his way. After my mind was blown by this natural wonder, it was back on the snowmobiles to head back to base camp for hot drinks and cookies. This is the tour to do and this is the company to do it with!

Fantastic

5 by Katie April 7, 2018
We had a fantastic time. Our tour guide was super friendly and really helpful. Snowmobiling was incredible, so much fun. Would strongly recommend

An exhilarating experience

5 by Mohamed April 5, 2018
"Pick up was on time with detail explanation along with some humour ! Tour guides during ride was always present guiding am assisting. In general worth every penny....."

Well worth tour

5 by Vicki Riley April 5, 2018
"Absolutely amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Tour guides was great. Ice caves was a brilliant experience. All the equipment and the equipment we were provided with to wear was very good quality and obviously maintained well. Would definitely book again if we come back too Iceland."

Snowmobile and Ice Caves Tour

5 by Nico April 3, 2018
This tour was a great one! Felt like we were in a James Bond movie snowmobiling on the glacier with just white all around us. Going down through the snow into the ice cave was exciting and the ice cave was stunning with the natural ice formations. Highly recommend!

Awesome excursion

5 by Greg April 17, 2018
We spent over two weeks in Iceland and so we got to see nearly everything you can see during the snowy months including a total of three ice caves on three different glaciers. Of all the ice caves we got to see, the one we saw with extreme Iceland was the best! And getting to it by snowmobile was a blast!

Amazing adventure!

5 by Chloe April 15, 2018
We (family of 4 - 2 boys aged 14&12) had an absolutely fantastic time on this trip. The tour guides met us on time and were efficient at getting us all on the big wheeled bus to go up onto the glacier. The journey up there was fascinating (if somewhat bumpy!) and our guide told us lots of information about the glacier. We arrived at the base on the glacier and were kitted out speedily, and given a quick demo on how to use the snowmobiles. Then we sped off across the glacier - such a buzz! The ice cave was beautiful and we had ample time to take photos. We were really lucky to have a perfect day with blue skies and bright sunshine. The journey back on the snowmobiles was even speedier and really good fun. There was hot chocolate and coffee waiting for us back at the hut, which was very welcome. I can recommend wearing gloves under the mittens you are given because it's pretty cold! Even though this trip seemed massively expensive when I booked it, I would recommend it without a second thought. When you get there you realise why it costs so much to run this kind of excursion! Thank you to all of the guides for a very memorable day.

Great Trip - Thrilling

5 by Kelley April 12, 2018
Had a wonderful wonderful experience going through this tour!! The views were simply expansive and just awe-inspiring. One suggestion - I am a very adventurous and adrenaline loving person! However, riding on the back of my fiance's snowmobile, i was terrified, and he's usually the one that is scared. It just felt like he was going to tip us about 65 times. So that being said, if I ever have the opportunity to go snowmobiling again, i would absolutely drive my own snowmobile.

AMAZING!!

5 by Sarah Nethercott March 8, 2019
Would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone looking for abit of an adventure. The guides were very helpful and full of interesting information. A special thanks to our guide Hans who kept us all very entertained. We had the best time and such an amazing experience!!

Snowmobiling and ice caves

5 by Sacha March 8, 2018
The trip from start to finish was amazing .. the truck that transported us was the best in the business and could continue to drive while the tyres deflated to give extra grip on the extreme conditions . Everything was provided so no need to take addition clothes or footwear . They even gave me covers to protect my boots . On the way we stoped to see the beautiful waterfalls and on the return we stopped to view the hot springs so much more given than previously paid for . We were even given hot drinks , cakes and biscuits at the end to warm us up .A professional company which made me feel secure and safe .

White-out adventure

4 by Jackson Norton March 6, 2018
"I have never been snowmobiling before so I was really looking forward to this adventure as well as walking on the glacier and hiking an ice cave. Unfortunately, due to the weather we were unable to get on the glacier and hike the ice cave. While it was disappointing, I was totally understandable as the weather was intense with freezing fog. The tour guides had our safety in mind and I was thankful for that. We still got to ride the snowmobiles for about an hour and see some of the beautiful scenery when the fog briefly lifted. It was so much fun. The trip up to and back from the glacier in the mega buses is half the fun, but can be somewhat nauseating if you are prone to car sickness. The only negative I can say about this trip was the tour guide was late picking us up from Gullfoss which caused some anxiety for the group I was with."

Amazing tour!!

5 by Jackie March 5, 2018
Snowmobile and ice cave tour from Reykjavík was such a great day, our tour guide was friendly and very funny, the 4x4 drive was fun way to get there, the snowmobiling was great fun with amazing staf/guides to assist, the ice cave was so nice but would have liked a little more time in it. My sister an I had an amazing Icelandic experience so thank you guys!!

This tour is awesomely extreme!

5 by Mayra Vega March 25, 2019
We were a group of 10 with no previous experience in a glacier or ice cave. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and cautious, making sure the group had a nice time. We were caught up in a snow storm, but everybody made it safe, thanks to the guides. I got dizzy on my way down, and a soon as I got to the camp a very very lovely guide (I so sorry I was to dizzy to get her name to thank her, she was the sweetest person) help me get better. It is a once in a lifetime exprience and you guys made it possible. Thans!

Extreme by name and extreme by nature

5 by Afrababy March 25, 2019
We joined the snowmobile and inside the glacier trip in March, from start to finish we felt safe and reassured by James our guide which is just as well as the weather conditions on the glacier were pretty poor. The weather meant we didn't see much other than white all around us. At times even the snowmobile in front of us was difficult to see,it was an experience we will probably never have again very much an adrenaline rush. Its a long day but so glad we did it. The other guides who met us at the base to kit us out before and after the snowmobile ride were all very professional and efficient giving clear instuctions at just the right level. The day certainly made us appreciate the power of nature and how the weather in Iceland can change so quickly.

Amazing

5 by Angela March 25, 2019
Well organised, small groups, all pick ups were on time, guide was full of fantastic facts, snow mobiling was a great experience, would definitely recommend

Amazing

5 by Penny March 25, 2018
The whole experience was amazing

Really nice

5 by Nadine March 20, 2019
"We experienced a really nice and humorous guide, giving us many interesting and funny information during the tour. The tour was not too touristic since the group is relatively small (12 people). Also, they differentiated between slow and fast drivers in the group itself with a second guide which was really useful and good. So we had the option to speed up a little. We enjoyed it a lot!"

Great tour - So glad we booked it.

5 by Daniel Taylor March 20, 2019
"Me and my wife booked this tour as we really wanted to experience driving a snowmobile and see the ice caves in the extremes of Iceland. We were looking forward to the trip as all the reviews seemed good. We were not disappointed. Great communication before the trip and excellent service and quality throughout the trip. Only thing that could be improved would be the biscuit selection after the tour. My wife is gluten free so couldn’t have any of the snacks. Not a minor issue, but the only thing we could think of as an opportunity. If you’re thinking of this tour. Just book it. Ps. Friends of our booked with the rival snowmobile firm(blue overalls) and had nowhere near as good as a time."

Wonderful

5 by Felicia Milton March 20, 2019
Absolutely wonderful time!!! Would have done it more than once on my trip! The guides were so fun and knowledgeable; exceeded expectations!

Bargain trip!

5 by 5-Speedxj March 18, 2019
I opted for meeting up at gulfoss since it was closer to my rental cabin. The shuttle ride in the lifted sprinter bus was awesome. The snowmobiles are modern lynx similar to the skidoo’s from back home. The group was around 20 riders some with passengers. I would say that that the group size was just right. A similar tour with a different company is over 30. The ice cave is amazing you won’t see anything like it as it was just recently found and could change at a moments notice. Round out the trip back at the base camp with warm beverage and a snack and then you head back to the van to gulfoss to finish the trip.

One for the Bucket List

5 by Sue G March 17, 2019
Riding on a snowmobile through the white vastness of a glacier was a top life experience. The tour guides were knowledgeable and the ratio of tour guides to guests (3 guides) made you feel safe and that they were on top of things. They gave thorough instructions on how to drive and ride on a snowmobile as most participants had never ridden on one before. The ice cave was really interesting and again, guides explained formation and other interesting facts. Thoroughly exhilarating and fun. This activity is fine for young and middle-aged adults.

Highly recommended!

5 by Jan van Drongelen March 16, 2019
Our first time on a snowmobile and we had great fun! A very well organized tour and amazing views on top of the Glacier. And on top of that our guide Val (kilmer ;-)) was very knowledgeable and really friendly and humorous. I highly recommend this tour!

Very good but you need to explain the pick up better.

5 by Darren Robins March 16, 2019
We booked two trips with you and they were both excellent. My only comment is that you need to have some identification on the pick up vehicles so customers know which vehicle they are on. The pick up for this trip was. Truck with Artic adventures on but we booked with Extreme Iceland. The coach for the northern lights trip was very confusing. Their were hundreds of people at bustop 13 and more than 15 couched came to collect. None said Extream Icelland. Your helpline had to talk to the coach guide before we were finally accepted for the trip. Initially she refused to let us board the coach.

Fantastic

5 by Mark Davies March 15, 2019
Fantastic experience and everything ran smoothly

Great tour guide and enjoyable trip

4 by Catherine P March 15, 2019
"We booked onto the trip as an add on and we really enjoyed ourselves - the snowmobileing was good however we had a few in our group which kept straying off course and we had to wait for them so I think it was a lot slower than what it could have been and the I’ve cave was amazing however I did expect it to be a lot larger from previous reviews but it was small and intimate but very pretty Recommended and the tour guide definitely made the trip especially with her last-minute off roading up the mountain"

An incredible adventure!

5 by Konrad March 14, 2018
There's nothing like gliding across a glacier on a snowmobile in Iceland! Our guide, Arni, picked us on Reykjavik and drove to Gullfoss where we swapped the van for a superjeep and drove off-road to get to the glacier. We geared up and rode our snowmobiles across the vast glacier and stopped at an amazing ice cave. The views were incredible and the experience was unforgettable!

Snowmobile and ice cave

4 by Nikki March 13, 2019
"The best experience Iv ever had. Brilliant guide that told us everything we needed to know plus information about Iceland and any questions we had. The snowmobiling was just incredible. Landscape was jaw dropping. Kept wanting to stop and stair. Ice cave was awesome. The only disappointment was it was a massive group of maybe 30 people when it said small groups. Defiantly wasn’t a small group, but other reviews also said this. Would still recommend but be aware of waiting For other people (we were 45 minutes late to leave as we all waited for a couple who were never even coming. Even though we turned up early as it said to 15 minutes before the leave time)"

I love it

5 by Federico Arce Chacon March 13, 2019
I loved it too much, unique experience in life, I would definitely recommend it, when I return to Iceland I would do it again, Greetings from Costa Rica,FAC.

Wow -- breathtaking

5 by Jim March 13, 2018
We did a lot on this trip, but this was by far my very favorite activity on the trip. The staff was very helpful and excited with us, moved us along nicely and helped us get ready. The guides took us out on an amazingly fast trip (we went faster cause we wanted to rather than a slow horse riding type event), and just was an incredible experience. We went down into an ice cave for some great pictures, pulled water from an ice candle inside the cave and it was amazing to taste such fresh and clean water. Over all, the ride was great, the tour guides were a lot of fun and down to Earth and the scenery - - oh my - - the scenery. Highly recommend it.

Amazing Tour

5 by Sebastian March 12, 2019
"Unfortunately the start of our tour got changed several times. But it was absolutly worth it!!!! Blue sky, bright shining sun, great group and great guides!!! An unbelievable, unforgetable view from the glacier. A lot of fun wühle riding a snow-mobile for the first time! And the visit of an ice cave that is like a time machine! You have to do this tour!"

Fun and Endurance

5 by Ice-Tracker Geoff March 11, 2019
"Snowmobiling is fun, but in almost white out conditions, it was an endurance to reach the ice-cave. Based on the briefing, we felt safe, and during the trip the Safety rider at the back checked that we were all ok. Icecave was great. Nice mocca coffee to finish Thoroughly recommend"

Amazing experience!

5 by Kostas Kaltekis March 11, 2019
One of the best experiences of my life! A bit pricey but totally worth it. Tour was well organised, all staff is very professional and helpful and the snowmobile ride was spectacular!!

Excellent Tour

5 by Conor March 11, 2019
"This was one of the best tours we've ever been on. The snowmobiles were great fun and the views were spectacular. The cave was unlike anything we've seen before and the tour guide gave us interesting info on how they're formed. The tour guides were very friendly and funny and made the day very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Iceland."

snowmobile and ice cave

5 by andrew c March 10, 2019
"Well organised trip, with a small group that made it all more personal. Simple things like clear areas to change, a hot drink when you return and a detailed talk about the glacier and Volcano's in Iceland really rounded off a very enjoyable excursion. A friend of mine went with an adjacent company a few weeks earlier: the party was much larger and the overall experience wasn't anywhere near as good. Friendly staff/guide helped us at all stages and we felt we were being professionally led and looked after. Highly recommended."

Fantastic Experience

5 by Andy March 1, 2019
"This was a fantasic experience of the Glacier, Ski-dooing and Seeing under the Glacier. I found the guide very friendly and informative. Both my wife & two childer (under 12) came on this experience and also throughly enjoyed themselves. My Daughter felt a little scared at the thought of the Ski-Doo ride, but was put completly at ease by the wonderful staff up on the Glacier. She was so pleased at the end of the experience that she had taken part. Many thanks for being so kind and considerate to younger tour members!"

Dope AF

5 by Keegan MacLeod February 8, 2019
The entire trip, from Gulfoss to Basecamp to the ice cave and back again, was stunning. Instructions and preparations before leaving on the snowmobiles were more than adequate for any skill level. The guides were engaging and very knowledgeable. Unbelievable bang for your buck and time.

Snowmobile and Ice cave tour

5 by Hannah February 7, 2019
It was our first trip to Iceland and we wanted to do something really unique and exhilarating so booked for the 4 of us to do this tour....it was amazing and exactly what we had hoped for! Nothing can describe the feeling of being on the glacier, I would highly recommend this to anyone who gets the opportunity. Fantastic, thank you!

Simply awesome!

5 by Lindsay February 3, 2019
"This was, by far, the best excursion on our Iceland holiday. It was well run, all required clothing, Jenner's, goggles etc were provided (you can rent boots at an additional cost, but I was absolutely fine in normal walking boots). On the way out to the ice cave you follow the guide along well with tracks in the snow, at your own speed - there's always a guide leading and a guide behind the last person. The ice cave was very cool (no pun intended). On the drive back the more confident/comfortable riders were able to go off-track more and have a bit of a play around. At the end it was coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits in the hut to warm back up. The whole experience was awesome. The snow-mobiles are quite hard work/physical to drive. Younger kids would be better as a passenger. I was passenger while my boyfriend drove, and it was excellent fun but I also got to admire the gorgeous serene scenery rather than concentrate on driving carefully. It really is beautiful. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants either a bit of adrenaline, or an alternative way to see rural Iceland."

Sites to see

3 by Nancy Fisher February 26, 2019
While traveling in Iceland we knew we wanted to see these 3 sites when there. We own a tourism business and think it is very important to welcome and impress our customers. We felt with so much time spent in the bus going from place to place it is important to share information and do this in an entertaining way. There is much room for improvement on this tour when it comes to this area. Our tour guide needs to have an outgoing personality along with a few laughs!

Glacier Snowmobiling & Ice Cave from Gullfoss adventure tour

3 by Fam Gotfredsen February 26, 2018
"We were all too many snowmobiles on our trip. About 20. Felt like we were in a rush. No time to make a short stop for taking pictures on our way til the Glacier. Perfect wheather, so beautiful. But we felt like cattle with so many people. Nice icecave. But again too many people to se it at one time. Friendly guides. Perfect instruktions to ride the snowmobile Very fine trip with the minibus to basecamp."

Fantastic tour!

5 by Katherine February 25, 2019
"We went on the tour in the 18th February. Our driver and guide Quentin was absolutely excellent and is a credit to your company, he stated calm and confident, despite having obviously very difficult driving conditions on that day. We had a great experience being driven to the starting base and once at the base the staff, Chris and Rita were also really friendly and helpful. The snowmobile instruction by Chris was really clear, easy to understand and informative. Made us feel really confident driving the vehicle. We would 100% reccomend this tour to people in future. Many thanks again"

Fantastic experience

5 by The Krangel Family February 24, 2018
The snowmobile and ice cave experience was great fun. The guides were excellent and very friendly. Going into the ice cave was fascinating. Throughly recommend.

Amazing Experience

5 by David D. February 2, 2019
"Our snowmobiling and ice cave experience was unforgettable. The guides we had were very knowledgeable both in terms of the technical skills needed to get where we were going, and academically to teach us all about the area - its history, formation, etc. Snowmobiling was insane fun, and the way to and from the ice cave had landscape views I'd never in my life seen before - almost otherworldly. Likewise, the cave had kinds of ice I'd never seen before, and learning about how it came to be was super interesting. Very highly recommended!"

Awesome experience

5 by Cherry February 16, 2019
It was an awesome experience to drive the snowmobile for the first time and get inside a glacier! A must-do when visiting Iceland! Very unforgettable for me and hubby.

Snowmobile and Ice Cave Tour was the Highlight of our Iceland adventure!

We highly recommend the Glacier Snowmobile and Ice Cave Tour! It was beautiful and unforgetable and was the highlight of our time in Iceland.

Outstanding experience of Glacier Snowmobiling & Ice cave tour

5 by Sid December 3, 2018
This tour of Glacier Snowmobiling on Landgjökull & Ice cave from Reykjavik was perfect. It was safe, coordinated, comfortable and of very good value. It was provided by Arctic Adventures at the end of November 2018 with an outstanding pair of tour guides - Ron & Aimar. Our day started at 7:15am for a pickup from the hotel in Reykjavik, with Aimar driving a 19 seater Mercedes minibus. After making a few more pickups in town, he began around 8am the 1.5 hour drive eastward into the countryside. Aimar drove very well, told us the plan ahead. Then we arrived at a stop in the Gullfoss area, for a bathroom break and this is where we switched to massive offroad vehicles - one driven by Aimar and another one driven by Ron. The vehicle me and my family boarded was driven by Ron. He explained that the vehicle we were in was a modified Mercedes Sprinter on top of a Ford F350 pickup truck body with monster truck tires. Ron drove us on a dirt road towards the glacier. He was quite entertaining with Icelandic stories/legends. Ron had to stop the truck a few times to deflate the tires for improved traction on the uphill dirt road. Then we arrived at the Basecamp. I could see the 15 snowmobiles lined up waiting for us, and could see the glacier ahead. Ron said it is very could on the glacier. We exited the truck and entered into a small structure that looked like a house. There we were outfitted with orange overall suits, balaclava, goggle, gloves. The staff helped us get ready and inspected everybody. If people wanted to rent shoes, they could. Then all dressed up, we proceeded to the snowmobiles and received a good orientation on driving a snowmobile. Then we were off! Truly amazing - cruising on top of a glacier - which was like packed ice. I felt very safe because we were asked to drive in a single file - with one guide on his snowmobile in the lead, one at the very back, and a third one in the middle on the side driving up and down monitoring/helping people who needed help. Then we arrived at an ice cave, climbed inside, saw it, came out, drove again on our snowmobiles quite far and I chose to drive at a high speed at times when possible. Then reached basecamp. Got rid of gear. They had hot coffee and hot chocolate with cookies waiting for us. Then back on 4x4 truck van. Then minibus to hotel. It was a long day returning by 5pm. Extremely satisfied. Thank you Aimar & Ron!

Amazing trip

5 by Kath Kitson December 23, 2018
This was one of our highlights of our long weekend in Iceland. The tour guides were great fun. Driving the snow mobiles and the ice cave were amazing. It should be ‘a must’ as part of your trip.

Tour Guide was excellent

4 by Marc Prole December 22, 2018
"We had a lot of fun on the snowmobiles, you have to stay in line so was a bit limited with the speed and path you could take, but there are other tours dedicated to snowmobiling if that's your thing, this was definitely a good introductory to them at a steady pace. The cave was lovely, I imagined it would be a little bigger with more to explore but it was still beautiful. Our guide, I'm terrible with names but I think her name was Millie, made the whole experience fun, which is no easy task with so much driving involved, she deserves a lot of credit! Extreme Iceland was definitely the right choice as far as tour companies goes, everything exceeded our expectations! Thank you guys."

Good Excursions

5 by Amelia December 22, 2018
Really good excursions and we also booked are transfer buses too. The tour guide was the best we have ever had, really helpful, answered all our questions, made everyone laugh. He was the French guy! Great job everyone said it. The one and only bad thing is the company take ages to reply to emails and also we couldn't find a contact number to call them when we was in Iceland and we emailed but didn't get a reply until we was back home.

Awesome Adventure!

5 by Michele December 21, 2018
Everything about this tour was great! The tour guide and staff made sure everyone was outfitted properly and knew what to expect. They showed everyone how to ride the snowmobiles safely and stayed with us throughout the trip. You don't need any experience or special gear. They provided us with everything we needed, including cookies and warm beverages at the end. The ice cave was very cool to see and sunrise on the glacier was breathtaking. If you aren't sure about booking this trip, do it. You will leave thinking this was one of the best things you did in Iceland. It was amazing!

Friendly people fun experience

4 by Ahmed December 17, 2018
Fun experience i would definitly recommend if you have the money for. Tour guides are all super friendly and informative. They make sure everyone is well accommodated

adrenalin rush

5 by pauline December 13, 2018
Excellent afternoon adventure. Transported by Monster Truck from Gulfoss Waterfall Café across to the glacier. We were then kitted out ready for a hair raising 40 minute Snow Mobile drive across the glacier. This was followed by a visit inside the ice cave, where we received a very informative talk. We then swapped drivers and had an equally dramatic ride, as a passenger, back to the monster truck. We then had an interesting 45 minute drive through a blizzard to Gulfoss waterfall café.

Adrenalin Rush

An excellent afternoon adventure. We were picked up by a Monster Truck at Gulfoss Waterfall Café and driven for 40 minutes onto the glacier. We were then kitted out in snow gear and drove for a 45 hair raising minute snow mobile journey across the glacier to the ice cave. After a very informative talk inside the ice cave, we changed drivers and drove through a blizzard back to the hut for a warm drink and change of clothes. We then travelled back to Gulfoss in the Monster Truck after a thoroughly enjoyable day.

Experience of a lifetime

"My partner and I bit bullet and splashed out on the expensive snowmobiling and ice cave tour, to have absolutely no regrets. It’s the best decision we ever made and now have memories that will last us a life time. There aren’t words to describe the sensation of soaring across an endless sea of ice and snow with unimaginable views you’d only ever see in a movie! The clothing and equipment provided kept us incredibly warm and sheltered from the unforgiving arctic weather, I was very impressed. The whole tour was organised incredibly well, from pick up, to base camp, the ice cave and back. All of the staff were super friendly and our tour guide Arni in particular deserves a special mention. He shared so much interesting knowledge about Iceland culture, traditions and folklore. And as a bonus he has a killer taste in music, my partner and I were singing along the entire drive to Gullfoss. His passion for his country and for the environment was so refreshing, he really made our trip perfect. Even when he took us on the ‘fun road’ back to Gullfoss!

Super cool tour

"The tour was awesome. The guides were great, also when we had an accident with the snow mobile. The only this is that we were looking for Extreme Island on the parking lot. It was not really clear we had to go to arctic adventures."

Snowmobile/ice Cave/ Notthern Lights

Snowmobiles

"An excellent day out on a very well organised excursion. The pick up was on time the experience of the bus on steroids was great fun. Our guide was brilliant and the fun on the snowmobiles was amazing. I thoroughly recommend doing this. We had a great time. Thanks."

Well organized

5 by Rachael November 6, 2018
The tour was well organized and the guides were very informative and knowledgeable about the area and explained what we were to expect during the tour, including safety aspects. The guides were all very kind and patient. They provided excellent gear for us to keep us safe and warm. We had a great time and I absolutely recommend booking a tour with them if you travel to Iceland!

Worth every penny.

The snow mobiling trip was something I’ll never forget.

Must do

5 by Berbetich November 26, 2018
Great adventure. Very knowledgeable and friendly people. They picked us up at our hotel and dropped us back there. Very fun. Great views. Because of weather couldn't do the cave but still 100% satisfied with the experience. Snowmobiling on a glacier. Not everyday you get to do that.

Superb experience from start to finish

My wife and I were in Iceland for the Airwaves music festival to celebrate her birthday. We wanted to do something to make the trip even more memorable and so we decided on a trip with Extreme Iceland to skidoo on the glacier. The experience was utterly unforgettable. The service from the moment we left Reykjavik was professional, informative and inspiring. The trip is expensive but you really do get what you pay for, the equipment from the overalls and helmets through to the skidoos and minibuses used to transport people up to the glacier are immaculate. If you're thinking of booking this trip then don't hesitate. You'll remember it from many years to come.

Excellent tour, highly recommend

5 by Laura November 22, 2018
We loved this tour from start to finish. It was quite a long journey to get to the glacier but I guess that can’t be helped. We stopped at Gullfoss waterfall on the way and had a look at that but I don’t think that was an official part of the tour. Perhaps they should build it in. We got lots of time on the snow mobiles which were easy to operate and pretty powerful. The ice cave was great and the guide was very knowledgeable.

Amazing

"The tour was amazing! All staff was great, already to help us, and explain everything! Thanks guy!"

Fantastic Experience

5 by Lesley November 11, 2018
"My family and I had an amazing experience on this trip. The journey to base camp was a lovely scenic drive, basecamp was well organised and we were impressed with how easy the snowmobiles were to handle (with no experience). The ice cave was impressive and the ride back in the dark was exhilarating. I was amazed at how well the leaders/drivers coped with the road conditions on the way back as the weather had turned and it was a 3hr return journey. Despite our concerns they were very competent and safely returned us to the car park. We feel very priviledged to have had such a great experience. Thank you."

Amazing tour!

Awesome

Great adventure, all guides where amazing and the equipment was top notch

Awesome experience in the Snowmobiling tour

5 by Norman Navarrete January 7, 2019
"My experience for the snowmobiling tour was really great! I was picked up at my hotel on time and was transferred to the place where the snowmobiling tour would take place, at all times the guide would tell us where we were going, if we would stop and told us clearly what we had to do. Additionally, we were provided with the ideal clothes for the tour (an overall, gloves and boots (you have to pay 1,000 ISK to rent them, but it is totallly worth it, in this way, you make sure you have the right shoes and that your feet won't freeze)). The tour per se was awesome since it was snowing, although I would have loved more speed! We also got to see an ice cave, which is something that you don't get to see every day. Overall, it was a great experience, everyone in the team makes their best effort for you to enjoy and the cookies and hot chocolate at the end of the tour are a great detail. Definitely would recommend it"

Great tour!

Amazing experience! Had a lot of fun! Super friendly tour guide! Recommend the tour to everyone!

Amazing tour, poor customer service

5 by Megan Taylor and Jack Wood January 5, 2019
"We had an amazing tour on the snowmobiles and was much better than expected. The only problem however was our tour time was moved however we received no notification of the change! This led to a very stressed and panicked morning as we were told we may not be able to go on the tour! Luckily we went and it was amazing but the stress beforehand was unnecessary and not ideal on a holiday while abroad! An idea for future tours could be to supply the tour guides with cameras to take photos of you which you could purchase afterwards rather than risk bringing your phone/camera on the snowmobile."

Exciting Trip

5 by Mary Ann P January 5, 2019
Ten of my family ages 17-58 went on the Extreme Iceland snowmobiling trip. Our tour guides were professional and I felt safe in the extreme conditions of riding in a snowmobile on a glacier in white out conditions. I highly recommend this company if you want to feel safe and experience “Extreme Iceland”

Fabulous Adventure

5 by Wheat family January 5, 2019
Had a absolutely terrific time on the snow mobiles. Our teenage children thoroughly enjoyed it and was a great thing to do as a family and we will talk about it and remember for many years to come. I was a little apprehensive but felt very safe at all times as all of the staff were experienced, professional and friendly. Can understand why it is a little pricey but worth every penny and would thoroughly recommend.

amazing

5 by Nancy January 31, 2019
"It was a very funny experience. I found, when you go to Iceland and you make Holidays, you have to book a snowmobil tour, because you see the beautiful nature and enjoy the rest. The guides are amazing, because they explain everything exactly and take care of yourself. Thank you very much!"

Very adventurous day

5 by Rambling Rose January 22, 2019
Despite the blizzard, the snow mobiling to the cave was exciting and adventurous.

Great snowmobiling experience

5 by Arina Yuzhakova January 11, 2019
"We had a wonderful guide Arni, he was knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and had a great sense of humor. Even though the weather was not great, we had a nice time on a snowmobile and visiting an ice cave. It wasn't one of the big caves, we had to bend to get into it, but it was still amazing"

Great experience

"This trip was a great experience. We where warned before we departed to the glacier that it could be possible that the cave was flooded. But we decided to go anyway. Very nice tour guide, difficult name (he knows) but with a long beard. It was great to see the glacier. Totally will go again if possible."

Excellent experience

5 by Kimberly H January 1, 2019
My sons and I did this on Christmas 2018. It was amazing. I highly recommend. My sons are young adults and said this was one of the best things they have ever done.
