Description

Discover the wonders of one of Iceland's most celebrated natural attractions on this thrilling glacier snowmobiling and ice cave tour from Gullfoss. This four-hour adventure takes travelers across the famous Langjokull glacier before exploring a fascinating ice cave.

The action begins in the morning when a friendly guide picks you up from Gullfoss Cafe and takes you to the snowmobile base on the east side of Langjokull glacier. Upon reaching the basecamp, you'll see warm little cottages to gear up and prepare for the snowmobiling adventure.

Before you can ride the snowmobile, your experienced guide will give you a quick briefing about the tour. Furthermore, they will give you all the safety gear and equipment for the ride. You'll be given a helmet, gloves, ski goggles, a snowmobile suit, and a cozy balaclava. Once you're all geared up, you'll ride a super truck that will take you toward Langjokull glacier.

As Iceland's second-largest ice cap, Langjokull glacier covers an area of approximately 395 square miles (1,023 square kilometers). Its name, translating to "long glacier," is perfect, given its elongated shape stretching across the landscape, which you can enjoy during the tour.

Upon reaching Langjokull glacier, snowmobiling guides will discuss the basics of riding a snowmobile and how to ride safely. The snowmobiles used are designed to handle the glacier's challenging terrain, making them perfect for beginners and experienced riders.

Operating the snowmobile requires a driver's license. However, you may book an extra guide to man the snowmobile if you don't have one.

After the safety reminders, you'll begin riding your snowmobile across the majestic glacier. The tour features a guided one-hour double ride through Langjokull glacier's breathtaking landscapes. As you set off across Langjokull glacier, the thrill of speed and the rush of cold air will energize you. 

You'll see an endless expanse of white, complemented by deep crevasses and towering ice formations. You'll also witness gigantic ice-filled volcanic craters. Moreover, the guide will take you to scenic spots with unmatched views.

Once you're done zooming across the glacier, the guide will take you to a natural ice cave for an experience like no other. Upon reaching the ice cave entrance, you'll be equipped with a helmet and crampons for safety.

As you enter the ice cave, you'll see the walls shimmer with a spectrum of blue hues ranging from deep sapphire to translucent azure. While you explore the cave, the guide will provide insights into the glacier's geology and the fascinating process of ice formation.

At the end of the tour, you'll ride the super truck back to the Gullfoss cafe. On your journey back, you can revisit the pictures you've taken or enjoy the beautiful sights along the way.
