Join this thrilling snowmobile tour where you’ll zoom across the white expanse of a glacier while the Midnight Sun lights up the night. Those looking for a truly Icelandic experience should grab this opportunity now!
The days are long during the summertime in Iceland as the sun only dips below the horizon for a short time, if at all. This slow sunset creates a stunning and colourful twilight sky, and there is no better way to witness this beautiful display of nature than on top of a glacier.
You will start this nighttime adventure at the settlement Húsafell in western Iceland. There, you will meet your guides and board a large vehicle that will take you up to Langjökull, Iceland’s second largest glacier.
Your guide will help you get geared up for the snowmobile tour. You’ll receive overalls, gloves and a helmet before you are taken to your ride. Don’t worry if you’ve never driven a snowmobile before; your guides will show you how and the vehicles are quite easy to operate, it is just a matter of squeezing the accelerator or the brake.
Once everybody is ready, there is nothing left but to start your exhilarating journey across the ice and race through the plains of endless white snow. After a while riding over the shimmery snowfields, you will make a stop to enjoy the breathtaking view.
Here you can think back to your home country. This late in the evening, the sky might be pitch black there, but here in Iceland, on top of this glacier, the sky will be illuminated by pink and gold rays of the Midnight Sun.
You’ll then start your drive back, crisscrossing over the pillowy mounds of snow until you reach the snowmobile base camp where you'll find your ride back to Húsafell.
