Join this tour that takes you to the heights of Iceland, and deep beneath the ice. This tour is for anyone looking for excitement while immersed in Icelandic natural wonders.

You'll set off from Reykjavík and head towards Borgarfjörður, a fjord known for its beautiful shoreline which conceals undercurrents and furious activity below the surface. You'll drive through Húsafell, an area particularly beloved because of its dense woodlands, as tall trees are a rare sight in Iceland.

From there, you'll begin your ascent to the Langjökull ice cap. The snowmobiling crew will take off from the base cap at Jaki, on the west side of the glacier. After putting on the necessary clothing and getting your helmets, you'll receive some safety instructions from your guide.

Then, you're ready to drive off across the glacier's vast, snowy wasteland to take in the incredible panoramic views. Recently, Langjökull has been shrinking at an incredible rate due to climate change, and scientists believe that it will disappear in as little as 100 years if it continues to melt at its current pace.

After snowmobiling, you'll take a short walk down into a magnificent man-made ice tunnel beneath the ice cap. Your expert guide will take you on this fantastic journey to the icy netherworlds deep within the glacier. Inside the glacier, the temperature is usually around 0°C (32° F), so dress warmly!

Until recently, what lay beneath the surface of Langjökull was a mystery—but those who designed the ice tunnel wanted to open a whole new world to visitors from all walks of life. This idea was brought to life through the combined efforts of the country's top engineers and glacial experts.

After snowmobiling and exploring the ice tunnel, you'll return to civilisation in Húsafell, where you will have the opportunity to have lunch before we keep our journey on to the magnificent waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafoss.

Was amazing! Specially the snowmobile tour, so much fun, the ice cave is really beautiful, and we also went to the lava cave (of course we have to pay a little more) The pool included in the tour is a regular hotel pool, not like the thermal ones, so we recommend you to choose the waterfall instead

This was a unique experience. The glacier and ice tunnel were pretty cool. It gets three stars because of the advertising. It advertises a one hour snowmobile trip. It was 10 mins there and 10 mins back. So 20 mins total time on the snowmobile. And we went very slowly. One tour guide was a jerk, but Ranier was very nice, knowledgeable and funny.
