Join this snowmobile tour of Langjökull glacier to spend an afternoon journeying across the slopes on a revved-up snowmobile. Snowmobiling atop one of Iceland's most stunning glaciers is a once in a lifetime adrenaline-pumping experience. This adventure is perfect for those wanting to explore the country's famous glaciers and experience one of Iceland's most thrilling activities.
You'll begin by making your way to Gullfoss, the highlight of the Golden Circle, to meet up with your local guide. From there, you will head towards the snowmobile base camp by the foot of Iceland's second-largest glacier Langjökull. As you travel, be sure to take in the surrounding countryside, especially the lava fields and rock cliffs which are such characteristics of the rich and diverse Icelandic terrains.
Once you've reached the base camp, you will suit up for the tour with a helmet, gloves and hood, and get a lesson on how to operate the snowmobiles best. Then, you're off to explore the incredible wintry landscape in front of you, at a speed you're comfortable with. Your journey will take you across the snowy white expanse of the glacier where you can take in views of the pristine mountains all around you.
Your snowmobile will leave tracks crisscrossing the powdery snow as you zoom across the glacier, revelling in Iceland's natural world. Every part of the glacier is full of excitement, from the vertical shafts puncturing the surface, called moulins, filled with pure blue ice to the icy peaks of the surrounding mountains. It's an adventure like no other providing fascination and intrigue to all the riders.
In medieval times, the caves surrounding the glacier were a favourite hiding spot for the outlaws of Iceland, as they escaped exile or plotted revenge on their enemies. Ask your guide all about the history of these stunning natural surroundings. As glaciers are continuously on the move, the landscapes will shift and change, leaving each visit a unique experience.
Once you've completed your snowmobile ride, you will head back to base camp and catch a ride back to Gullfoss waterfall. Make sure to snap some pictures from the top of the glacier after you dismount and take in the sheer magnitude of your experience.
Don't miss this chance to experience the thrills of snowmobiling and to leave your tracks on top of the second-largest glacier in Iceland.
