Join this tour to spend the afternoon whizzing across the slopes of Langjökull glacier on a revved-up snowmobile. This adventure is for those who wish to get to know the country's famous glaciers, looking for a thrilling activity in between all the sightseeing the land of ice and fire.

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 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 base camp, you will suit up for the tour with helmet, gloves and hood, and get a lesson on how to best operate the snowmobiles. Then, you‘re off to explore the wintry landscape at hand, at whatever speed you prefer. The pristine mountain views and frosty air are sure to leave you breathless.

Your snowmobile will leave tracks crisscrossing the powdery snow as you zoom across the white expanse, revelling 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 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.

Once you finish with your chilling ride, you will head back to base camp and catch a ride back to Gullfoss Waterfall.

Don't miss this chance to experience the thrills of snowmobiling and to leave your mark on the second-largest glacier in Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.

Great trip! Despite poor weather this was an amazing trip, we were wrapped up well with good equipment and had an amazing time on the snowmobiles! Both my other half and i had a decent amount of time at the handlebars and the ice cave we visited was fantastic! The glacier was out of this world, highly recommend this trip! Thank you
