Enjoy the thrill of a snowmobile adventure upon Langjökull glacier, the second-largest ice cap in Iceland!

This family-friendly, small-group scenic snowmobile tour is an ideal activity for newcomers and seasoned riders alike. Snowmobiling is a wonderful, versatile way to explore glacial features. You’ll have the ability to traverse the rugged terrain of Iceland’s pristine backcountry with ease as you immerse yourself in a myriad of diverse and fascinating landscapes.

Your adventure begins at Gullfoss waterfall on Iceland’s famous Golden Circle. It is here that you will meet with your guide and the rest of the group, before departing on a super jeep to our snowmobile base camp at Langjökull. Along the way, you’ll pass by vast lava fields, large boulders left over by the retreat of the glaciers, as well as striated, rocky moraines. As you make the ascent towards Langjökull, your guide will give you a rundown of the area’s history, including the importance of Iceland’s glaciers and how they have changed over many thousands of years to the present time today.

Upon arrival at base camp, your guide will equip you with the necessary safety gear required for this tour, including a helmet, cover-alls, face mask and gloves. They’ll go over some safety procedures and teach you how to safely operate a snowmobile. Once everyone is ready, your guide will check that you are comfortable on your equipment before you head out on the adventure of a lifetime.

Langjökull glacier is a snowmobiler’s paradise and you’ll soon learn why. Get ready to set your sights on some of Iceland’s most remarkable glaciated terrain. You’ll follow an incredible riding trail as you make your way by snowmobile across the expansive, ever-evolving landscapes atop Langjökull glacier. Enjoy the sweeping views as you glide over the snow with impressive mountains, ice formations and stunning vistas all around. During this tour, there will be plenty of time to explore the magic of the glacier, including the opportunity to stop and set foot upon thousand-year-old ice. Standing upon Langjökull is an exhilarating experience made all the more thrilling by the buzz and excitement of snowmobiling.

Following an epic and fun guided adventure on the snowmobile trails, you’ll head back to base camp, where you will board the super jeep for the drive back to Gullfoss waterfall – no doubt with special memories to last you a lifetime.

Whether you are after an adrenaline pumping experience or to capture some awe-inspiring photographs, crisscrossing the Langjökull glacier is a great introduction to the remote and breathtaking nature of Iceland.
