Full description

This exciting tour takes you on a discovery of Iceland’s beautiful scenery as you enjoy a 1-hour snowmobile ride on the Langjökull glacier. This adventure is a scenic and fun tour on the glacier, easily accessible from Reykjavik. You will be picked up from Skjól Campsite and taken on the fast route to the Langjökull glacier. Arriving at the mobile glacier base camp you will gear up in warm glacier overalls, gloves, and helmets. The specially trained glacier guides will then show you how to safely operate the snowmobiles on the glacier before going for an amazing 1-hour tour on the glacier. Langjökull is Iceland’s second biggest glacier. It contains 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 staggering and you will see the steep Eiríksjökull glacier, the highest mountain in west Iceland, the dome shaped Hofsjökull glacier in middle of the highlands along with the Kerlingafjöll Mountain range.

    We were so lucky to be the only ones on the tour that day plus were blessed with perfect weather up in the glacier. Our guide Oskar was clearly passionate about his job and nature and shared so much valuable knowledge about the glaciers with us. He was so friendly and helpful and respectful it felt like going on a trip with an old friend. The winter and riding gear provided was tip top, we really didn’t need anything of our own. We had a great time on the snowmobile, covered a lot of grounds and the landscape was breathtaking. Oskar offered to and took great vids and pics of us for us , it really couldn’t have been any better! Thank you so much, Oskar for such a wonderful experience and memory!

    worth it

    Very professional tour guide, telling stories with dramatic voices all the way, a group of about 30 people, walking in the endless ice field for an hour, the full equipment provided by the travel company, not cold at all, halfway in an ice cave I took a break here to take pictures and went back to the travel company to prepare hot drinks for snacks.

    I’ve never been on a snowmobile before but it was an awesome experience. Both our driver and our guides were the best. Riding across a glacier was pretty cool. It was an experience I’ll remember for a long time. They provided everything you need. They provided refreshments too. Loved every minute of it.
