Combine sheer natural beauty and a thrilling adventure with this Northern Lights snowmobile tour on Langjökull glacier. Race across the ancient ice on a snowmobile while the stunning Auroras dance in the evening sky above. Those looking for the ultimate Iceland experience should not miss this tour.

You’ll meet your guides at the parking lot of Gullfoss Waterfall in the evening. There, you will board a large vehicle that will take you through the rough terrain of the Icelandic Highlands to the country’s second largest glacier, Langjökull. 

At the base camp at Langjökull, you will be given all necessary gear needed to enjoy your tour to the fullest, as well as a quick safety briefing and a lesson from the experts on how to operate snowmobiles. Then there is nothing left but to mount your ride and head on out into the darkness.

You’ll let your snowmobile’s headlights guide the way through the powdery white snow. Seeing a glacier at night is a unique experience, and the fading sun bathes this remote landscape of snowy peaks in orange and pink light as the last rays of sun hit the ice. Then the darkness takes over and the icy plains transform into the perfect place to witness the celestial display of the Northern Lights.

You’ll be in the cosy embrace of the darkness as you look up into the evening sky for a glimpse of the elusive Auroras. Should the weather gods be in your favour, you’ll see a spectacle that defies the imagination as the green, pink, purple and white colours in the sky swirl beautifully above.

Book this tour now to secure your spot on this incredible tour where you’ll hunt for the elusive Northern Lights by riding a snowmobile on top of a glacier. That's certainly something to write home about. Check availability by choosing a date.
