Itinerary

This adventure combines the thrill of a snowmobile ride over Iceland's second largest glacier, Langjokull, with the fascinating experience of exploring one of nature's true wonders, a natural ice cave. Learn how to handle a snowmobile under the professional supervision of our guides, who will lead you on an expedition to the brilliant blue formations of Langjokull Glacier's majestic ice cave.

After gaining a unique and educational perspective from the glacier's heart, it's time to take in more of Langjokull's sights. As we make our way back to base camp, you'll see both Eiríksjökull and Hofsjökull glaciers, as well as the colorful Kerlingarfjöll Mountains. All are providing spectacular photo opportunities along the way!

Duration: The tour from Skjól Campground is 4-5 hours. The tour from Reykjavik is 8-10 hours.

Ready to tackle Iceland’s second largest glacier? Join us for a wild ride out on Langjokull! We’ll hit off the adventure with a drive to our base camp in a specially converted Super Jeep. Strap on your gear and helmet for a full hour, zipping by glaciers on a snowmobile. Then it’s time for a spellbinding, spelunking expedition into the Langjokull Ice Cave.

Traversing a glacier by snowmobile is the quintessential adventure, but we're not finished yet! Along the way, we will stop at one of nature's true wonders, Langjokull Ice Cave. A natural ice cave formed over thousands of years, which gives us a unique perspective of the glacier from the inside while providing fascinating insights into its formation.

We will spend around 15 minutes exploring this incredible cave's patterns and deep-blue colors, then head back for more adrenaline-filled fun on the snowmobile. We round off our epic adventure with a few photos of the beautiful landscapes before catching our breath with hot drinks and cookies back at base camp.

Group listening to guide instructions on Langjokull

On arrival at base camp, our friendly, certified glacier guide will equip you with everything you need for a warm and comfortable snowmobile ride. Don't worry if you've never been on a snowmobile before – you'll receive basic training and a safety briefing. This knowledge and your driver's license are enough to operate this vehicle.

Then it's off onto the vast, snow-covered glacier you go, taking in the natural splendor of this wild, untouched area, surrounded by some of Iceland's most famous sights. You'll see 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.

If you choose a tour option without pick-up, the meeting point is at Skjól Campground (please be there at least 15 minutes before departure). Then, we go on a rugged, scenic super truck ride to our base camp on Langjokull glacier. This route will give you a true off-roading experience with a sturdy but comfortable Super Jeep which is the perfect warm-up for future adventures.

Having had the adventure of a lifetime, we climb back into the super trucks for the scenic ride back to Skjól Campground. This unique tour is the perfect mix of fun, thrills, and awe-inspiring natural beauty, leaving you with memories for life. Arriving back at the Skjól Campground, we say our goodbyes. Don't forget to check out the incredible photos you captured!

We pick you up at your selected location in Reykjavik and drive you to the snowmobile base camp near Langjökull glacier, where we gear up and get ready for a full day. Your guide will show you how to operate the snowmobile safely and confidently. Then we strap in and ride out into the Western Highlands.

About a half-hour drive from the camp, we’ll take a brief detour to a natural ice cave. Some of the best parts of the winter season are these fantastic glacier caves in Iceland, which glitter like blue and white jewels. We’ll have a lot of time to explore the cave and pose for photos.

Choose between being picked up in Reykjavik or meeting your guide on location at Skjól Campground. The meet-on-location option is perfect for those who have a rental car. Click here for a map of the meeting point.

The guided tour price is based on two people sharing one snowmobile. If you’re a solo traveler or prefer to have your snowmobile, you can upgrade to a solo snowmobile. See the booking engine for details.

Drivers must possess a valid driver’s license and be at least 18 years of age to operate a snowmobile in Iceland.
