Snowmobile Tour on Langjokull Glacier | Departure From Gullfoss Waterfall

Based on 22 traveller reviews

Add an exciting twist to a visit to Gullfoss, by combining it with a snowmobiling excursion on Langjökull glacier. This trip is perfect for those eager spice up a day of sightseeing with a dose of adventure.

This tour begins from Gullfoss waterfall, one of the three points of the famous Golden Circle, and one of Iceland’s most iconic attractions. In the upper carpark, you will meet your guide and group, board a super-jeep, and be whisked off to Langjökull glacier.

This is a beautiful drive, taken in the shadows of dramatic snowy peaks, over a rough terrain that most vehicles cannot traverse. Once you arrive at the snowmobiling basecamp, you will be fitted with all your gear and receive a quick safety briefing, before mounting your vehicle and starting your adventure.

Each snowmobile will seat two people. Only licensed drivers are permitted to operate a snowmobile, but non-drivers are welcome to come and share one; children as young as eight can participate in this tour as a passenger. If you wish for a vehicle of your own, you can request one during booking for a moderate additional cost.

Iceland is one of the very few places in the world where you can snowmobile on a glacier throughout the year. The chance to even see an ice-cap like this is rare; but to be able to admire it from its surface, and rocket across it, is a truly unique experience.

The views across the ancient ice and surrounding landscapes are otherworldly; in clear weather, you will be able to see parts of the Icelandic Highlands, as well as other distant glaciers. This tour, therefore, is as mesmerising as it is exhilarating.

You will have a full hour to make the most of this experience, by far enough time to get used to your vehicle and truly appreciate this incredible opportunity. Once your adventure is complete, you will return to basecamp, hop back into the super-jeep, and shoot back to Gullfoss waterfall.

Hit the ice at full speed on this thrilling tour you won’t ever forget. Check availability by choosing a date.

Reviews

The snowmobile tour was the most amazing experience! We never saw or did anything like it before! It was like being on top of the world! And getting engaged on the top of the glacier really topped it off. It was worth every penny. Meeting point at cafe was not very clear but we found our guide in the end.

definitely do this one. great little side trip exploring the natural ice cave. one thing the cafe gets packed so trying to find the tour company was a bit hard with all the tourists. So you could either have a representative with a sign at the entrance of the cafe or have advertising on the trucks that take you to the snowmobile. Great funny informative guides as always.

Great tour. We did a lot of research on snowmobile tours in Iceland as we found them to be a bit expensive (like everything thing in Iceland). This tour was the cheapest one and it was awesome. Being on the glacier was great and being on the snowmobile (my boyfriend was the driver) was incredibly fun. Can recommend this trip.

Incredible experience, meeting point could have been better marked however.

Exciting experience. I did not drive myself but sat in the back with my husband who was driving the ski doo. Really loved seeing the glacier and would love to do again sometime.

Driving the snowmobile was much easier than I thought. This tour was a lot of fun and being able to skidoo on a glacier was a unique experience for me. Can highly recommend this tour.

This is the first time I ever ride a snow mobile. It was fun and exciting to ride on an ice field. The guides are good and make sure everyone is safe. There was a little hassle for the pick up. We were picked up at the Gulfoss Cafe but ther was no indication for the meeting point and we were searching everywhere for the guide.

Iceland was amazing. The people, the places where all fantastic. The landscape there changes almost every 5 mins. Fortunately the weather was in our favor. The most amazing thing was the northern lights. We just drove out onto a empty road and parked the car and watched the wonderful works of nature. The roads, the landscape, the nature is just mind blowing. Feels like you are living on the moon. If you are planning a trip dont think twice Just do it. you will treasure it for the rest of your life.

It's a wonderful tour of Iceland! With humorous guides, we all have safe and loverly experience during days in Iceland, frist time try snowmobiles and hiking on glacier. Best Iceland, great tours!

I was lucky enough to join this tour with a great group of people, the guides are really good and the make sure everybody feels save when riding the snowmobile, it is actually a lot easier than it looks. This is the perfect way to experience an Icelandic glacier with a dash of adrenaline!

I joined this tour as a part of a company trip. It was my first time snowmobiling and have to say: it was awesome! The weather was fantastic and the glacier was extremely beautiful. Driving a snowmobile is very easy, and actually much easier than I thought. First I thought it would be something similar to driving and ATV, but the terrain is so much smoother that it turned out to be much easier. Also, you can speed much more on snowmobiles than ATVs, so I can highly recommend this trip!

I can easily recommend this amazing snowmobile tour. Super exciting experience with a very friendly staff. The landscape was incredible, snow everywhere and blue sky. If you are doing the golden circle this is a great idea to add some more excitement in to it.

Had so much fun on this tour in great weather. The guides were really friendly and helpful and made sure we had a lot of fun. Being on top of the glacier and basically feeling like along in the world was just an amazing experience. I highly recommend this tour for everybody that is doing the golden circle.
