Description

Take your journey in the Icelandic Highlands to the next level with a tour of the massive and stunning Langjokull glacier from the comfort of a glacier truck. Travelers who wish to have a chance to explore Langjokull glacier and experience its awe-inspiring beauty and magnitude should book this tour today.

Langjokull glacier is located in the Western Highlands, a short distance from the tour’s meeting point at Gullfoss waterfall. Spanning 31 miles (50 kilometers) long and 12 miles (20 kilometers) wide, Langjokull is the second-largest glacier in Iceland. 

The ice of Langjokull is over 1,900 feet (580 meters) deep in its thickest areas and covers a mountain range and two active volcanic systems. The nearby Hveravellir geothermal area is fueled by one of these systems, and the resulting hot springs are considered some of the most beautiful in Iceland.

Langjokull glacier is a popular stop for adventurous visitors, with numerous exciting outdoor opportunities. Ice caving, glacier hiking, snowmobiling, and more are all great ways to explore this natural treasure.

Your three-hour tour starts with meeting your group at Gullfoss waterfall before heading off to Langjokull. Your transportation is in Sleipnir, the largest glacier truck in the world and the most comfortable way to traverse the glacial terrain. 

You will have the chance to get out of the truck once you reach the top of the glacier to enjoy the jaw-dropping views of the Highlands and explore the icy landscape atop Langjokull. Take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime experience by lying down on the glacier and feeling its power, and be sure to take lots of pictures!

Once you have finished taking in the incredible beauty of Langjokull glacier, it is time to head back down towards Gullfoss. Upon completing your tour, you will be left with lifelong memories of exploring one of Iceland’s most incredible natural areas. 

The Langjokull Glacier Expedition is suitable for all travelers, including children six and older. Comfortable, warm clothes and shoes with a good grip are necessary for exploring the glacier, and crampons for your boots are provided if needed. 

Since this tour leaves from Gullfoss, one of the most popular stops on the Golden Circle route, it is straightforward to add it on as an addition to your self-drive tour. A day spent visiting Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir geothermal area, Gullfoss waterfall, and Langjokull glacier is a well-rounded introduction to some of Iceland’s favorite natural features. 

Travelers looking to add an adventurous stop to their Golden Circle tour will love the Langjokull Glacier Expedition, allowing them the chance to ride to the top of Langjokull glacier in the world’s largest glacier truck and explore the beauty of the massive ice cap.
