Meet us at Gullfoss for a Snowmobiling tour, Langjökull
Join this tour to spend the afternoon whizzing across the slopes of Langjökull glacier on a revved-up snowmobile! This tour is for anyone who wants to spend time on Iceland‘s famous glaciers or anyone looking for a little activity in between sightseeing and eating in the fabulous restaurants of the city.
You'll make your way to Gullfoss café about a 2 hour drive from Reykjavik to meet up with your guide. You can select a departure time 10:00, 12:30 or 14:00 that fits your schedule, the tour should take about 3 to 4 hour depending on season. As you roll along, be sure to take in the surrounding countryside, the lava fields and rock cliffs so characteristic of Iceland.
Once you‘ve reached the snowmobile base camp, you will suit up for the tour (helmet, gloves and hood) and get a lesson on how to best operate the snowmobiles. And then you‘re off to explore the wintry landscape. The pristine mountain views and frosty air will leave you breathless.
Your snowmobile will leave tracks criss-crossing powdery snow as you zoom across the white expanse, reveling in Iceland‘s natural world. Every part of the glacier is full of mystery, from the vertical shafts puncturing the surface, called moulins, filled with pure blue ice to the icy peaks of the surrounding mountains.
In medieval times, the caves surrounding the glacier were a popular hiding spot for the outlaws of Iceland as they escaped exile or plotted revenge on their enemies.
Don't miss this chance to leave your mark on the second-largest glacier in Iceland! Check availability by choosing a date.

The tour was great ! The snowmobile ride is one of the most amazing things you can do in Iceland. I took my son with me together. and my 6 years old boy loves it so much, we never saw or did anything like it before! It is was the most amazing experience for us! Actually driving the snowmobile was much easier than I thought. I recommend, definitely do this one when you are in Iceland.
This tour was so much fun. The bus pick us up from Gullfoss cafe, took about 45 min to drive to their campsite. They provide all equipment, helmet, glows and also overall suit to keep you worm. The snowmobile was super easy to drive, will definitely go again. Highly recommend !!!
It was an excellent tour. In front of the cafe, the tour car was right in front of us, quite easy to find. There were plenty of warm clothing provided in the camp with all sizes. I didnt expect snowmobile could be that exciting, felt totally different from glacier hiking. Would love to go again.
Fantastic experience! Really had great time riding one of those bad boys on the glacier lol The meeting point was right outside of the Gullfoll Cafe, easily to see the logo-ed monster truck with biggest ever tires. Took about 40 mins to reach the campsite where we put on the gears and started the journey. Was a bit nervous of getting lost in the middle of s-now-where although all mobiles were equipped with GPS, but certainly did not take long before the excitement and joy took over. Whole ride was about an hour with a short break. Super nice guides, 5+ star!
