Description

Discover the thrill of Iceland's icy wilderness on this small-group adventure tour in Langjokull glacier. Adventurers keen on speeding across snowy landscapes aboard a snowmobile and exploring a unique ice tunnel deep in the glacier should book a spot on this guided tour today.

This combination tour in Iceland begins in Husafell, a farm estate with an activity center in West Iceland. The area is roughly 80 miles (130 kilometers) from Reykjavik. Tour joiners are advised to alot at least two hours of travel time to reach the activity center before tour departure.

At the Husafell activity center, you'll meet your experienced guide and the rest of the group. The guide will be your primary source of information and assistance for the next four to five hours. Feel free to ask them for help or questions if needed.

After a short drive through rugged landscapes, you'll arrive at the Klaki basecamp by the foot of Langjokull glacier. Here, the guide will help you suit up with snowmobiling equipment, including a warm overall, balaclava, helmet, goggles, and gloves. 

Once ready, you'll hop on the snowmobile to begin the first leg of this combo tour. If it's your first time, fret not, because snowmobiles are easy to operate and the guide will provide a demonstration. Just remember to bring a valid driver's license if you plan on driving.

Feel the adrenaline rush as you speed across the vast fields of snow, surrounded by breathtaking views of Langjokull's landscapes. Langjokull is a popular spot for snowmobiling, hiking, and skiing tours because of its beautiful terrain. It's also Iceland's second-largest glacier.

The snowmobiling experience will take approximately 25 minutes. During this time, you'll explore the glacier's ice formations, including snow valleys, slopes, ice falls, crevasses, and more.

Following your exhilarating snowmobile ride, it's time to venture even deeper into the frozen wonderland on the Into the Glacier tour. Unlike many ice caves in Iceland, this man-made tunnel is accessible even in summer.

Inside the ice tunnel, an intricate network of passages and chambers carved from Langjokull will welcome you. The white-to-blue hues of the tunnel walls are fascinating to look at and photograph up close. 

As you navigate through the frozen maze, your knowledgeable guide will provide insight into the glacier's formation, geology, and unique features to enrich your visit. Don't hesitate to ask questions if you're curious about anything.

After your unforgettable exploration inside the glacier, the guide will drive you back to Husafell, where you can unwind and reflect on your incredible journey. 

Join this unforgettable journey in Langjokull glacier with back-to-back snowmobiling and ice caving tours. Check availability now by choosing a date.
