Snowmobile Day Tour

Ride a Snowmobile on Langjökul

About Tour

Have you ever dreamed of stepping into a majestic ice tunnel that pierces through the heart of a glacier? Spend a day in the icy wonderland of Langjokull Glacier, the second-largest ice cap in Iceland. Ride a snowmobile on top of the glacier!

Highlights

  • Small group tour
  • Snowmobiling on a glacier
  • Langjökull Glacier

If you travel from Reykjavik you will reach Húsafell after about two hours. Here you can grab a bite, use the restroom, and stretch your legs. After a short break, we’ll drive to Langjökull Glacier (“the long glacier”), the second-largest glacier in Iceland, where our snowmobile adventure takes place.

Once we arrive at our basecamp, the guide will introduce you to all the equipment you’ll use. You don’t need any prior snowmobiling experience. You’ll need a driver’s license if you intend on driving the snowmobile. The guide will show you how to operate the snowmobile. After a short safety briefing, you’ll be ready to roll!

Snowmobiling is a thrilling experience. You’ll drive on glowing white snow that endlessly stretches out in front of you. Langjokull Glacier is ever-changing, with deep moulins, craggy crevasses, and mesmerizing ice falls that shape the landscape. You’ll spend around 40 minutes riding across the top of the ice cap before we explore the heart of the glacier.
