Full description
Join a 1 - hour Exhilarating Snowmobile Adventure on Langjökull Glacier! The ride takes you up towards Langjökull Glacier in a specialized Super-Jeep. It is an exciting experience in itself. After arriving at our glacier base camp, you will be provided with a snowmobile suit, gloves, balaclava and helmet for your snowmobile ride. Your professional glacier snowmobiling guide will then show you how to safely operate a snowmobile before your one-hour excursion officially starts. Langjökull Glacier is home to several enormous ice-filled volcanic craters, rimmed in by imposing volcanoes and set in the breathtaking Icelandic interior. The views from the flanks of Langjökull are quite incredible. In the distance rests Eiríksjökull glacier, the highest mountain in west Iceland, the dome-shaped Hofsjökull glacier, and Kerlingafjöll Mountain range.

Good guidance. Super cool experience. Our children aged 13 and 10 found it very exciting and fun. From Reykjavik it is a 1.5 hour drive to the point where you get special clothing. Then you have to drive another 45 minutes with a special bus to the glacier . Take a travel tablet if you get car sick easily . Enthusiastic guides and very professional.
