Don't worry if you've never tried snowmobiling before; your guide will be on hand to help every step of the way—just make sure to bring your full international driver's license if you want to operate a snowmobile yourself.

Your guide will also provide you with all of the necessary safety equipment, such as bright windproof overalls, a helmet and gloves. When you're all kitted out, it's time to take to the glacier itself!

Whizzing across the ice cap, you'll find the perfect balance between sightseeing gorgeous natural surroundings and enjoying a boost to your adrenaline! The glacier itself is wide, open and beautiful, perfect for picking up some speed as you reach higher and higher elevations.

Highly recommend! Snowmobiling across seemingly endless stretches of the purest and whitest snow was absolutely one of the best parts of my trip to Iceland. It was definitely an adrenaline rush, and watching the sun set during the tail end of the hour-long ride was breathtaking. The hour went by super fast, and I was so sad that I didn’t drive the whole time! It’s two to a snowmobile, so my friend and I split the time. (I believe you are allowed to request to be the sole driver.) The instructors are great, and they simplified the instructions; it was so easy to pick up! The ride to the glacier was also scenic and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. It’s quite bumpy and rocky, as the only way to trek through the depths of snow is by riding on monster truck type vans. If you’re staying I need Reykjavík, this is the perfect tour for you!

Best experience of my life!! I booked this trip as a surprise for my boyfriends 25th birthday and we truly loved every minute of it! Our tour guide was great (Arie/Arnie sorry I didn't catch spelling) he was the nicest and funniest person we met in Iceland. The drive up the mountain was beautiful and great fun! The snow suits were really cosy as well!! The actual snowmobiling was amazing, the views were incredible as the sun was just starting to set and the pit stop up the glacier was great (until my phone froze and I couldn't take any more pictures haha!). Me and my boyfriend took turns on the snowmobile and it's safe to say he preferred being the driver! If your going to Iceland it is worth spending a bit extra to do this trip because it is without a doubt a once in a lifetime experience that you'll never forget! I will recommend this to all my friends and family. Thanks again everyone, you were great fun!

This was without a doubt the highlight of my trip. Unfortunately, the first day my tour was cancelled (like dozens of others due to snow) but the office was quick to email me back and reschedule my tour for the following day. I was picked up promptly at the correct time in a spotless car and the driver was fun and friendly. The drive up to the glacier was remarkable and the team prepped us well as we suited up. WORTH EVERY PENNY. We had plenty of time on our snowmobiles and I could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you!

This trip was the highlight of my friends and I trip. The tour guide made it so fun and hilarious even after getting stuck on the road for a bit. Every penny was worth it! An Incredible view and experience in Iceland
