Embark on an exhilarating small-group adventure from Reykjavik with this combination snowmobile and ice cave tour in Langjokull glacier. Thrill-seekers keen on exploring the frozen wilderness of Iceland’s second-largest ice cap will enjoy the activities that this guided tour offers.

This day tour in Iceland begins in Reykjavik, where you’ll meet your experienced guide and the rest of the tour joiners. The guide will pick you up from your accommodation or a nearby designated bus stop for your convenience.

Alternatively, you can also drive directly to the Skjol campground near the Gullfoss waterfall. This will be the route of the tour regardless if you get picked up from Reykjavik or not. The drive takes about two hours.

Once in the Skjol campground, the group will take a short but exciting super truck ride to the snowmobile basecamp by the foot of the Langjokull glacier. The transfer is an excellent introduction to the Icelandic Highlands' rugged terrain, with possible views of outlet glaciers and snow-capped mountains on the horizon.

Upon arrival at the snowmobile base, the guide will help you suit up with glacier equipment, including a warm overall and a helmet. They will also provide a safety briefing and a demonstration on operating the snowmobile, so even first-timers are welcome to join.

Feel the thrill as you zip across the snow-covered terrain of Langjokull, surrounded by panoramic views of white expanses and towering ice formations. Langjokull is ideal for snowmobiling because of its uninterrupted vast snowfields and slopes. After all, its name translates to the “Long Glacier” in English.

While enjoying the ride, you may explore ice crevasses, moulins, and multi-colored ice sheets. Your guide will lead you on an unforgettable snowmobiling, ensuring your safety and fun for roughly an hour.

Next, prepare to delve deep into the icy depths of Langjokull as you explore a natural ice cave hidden within the glacier. Every ice cave in Iceland is unique because they constantly freeze and melt with the passing of different seasons.

Step into a world of blue and white ice as your group explores one of the ice caves. Inside, you’ll see breathtaking ice formations that may also have “zebra striping” or streaks of gray ash from past volcanic eruptions.

While admiring and taking photos with the ice formations as your backdrop, the guide will share insights about the formation and geology of Icelandic ice caves. Feel free to ask questions to make your trip more engaging and knowledgeable.

After your time in the ice cave, you’ll ride the snowmobile back to the basecamp one last time. There, a truck ride to Skjol and transfer to the Icelandic capital will be waiting for you.

Join this epic adventure into the heart of Langjokull glacier, where thrilling snowmobiling, enchanting ice caves, and awe-inspiring landscapes await. Check availability now by choosing a date.
