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.

The tour was wonderful and the guides were very friendly and informative. The tour consisted of following closely behind the guide and other guests. It was fun however if you are with a large group or a slow group, do not expect to have a wild n' free adventure. Fun none the less!

Excellent! Thoroughly enjoyed it, I would have liked more time & more speed on the snowmobile but that's just because I enjoy that sort of thing. The guys & girls were great & the views were beautiful. Amazing & highly recommended!

My husband and I had a great time on this to! We were well equipped and the staff was great! My only comment would be that the actual time on the snow mobiles seemed a little short compared to all the time we had to spend getting there and back, but it was still worth it. Lots of fun!!!

This was the most amazing experience! Thrilling and exhilarating - the perfect way to spend my 40th Birthday! Right from the start in the Monster Tour bus, up into the Highlands and then on to the Snow Mobiles. We were lucky enough to have our own guide due to a large group that had come together. Our guide was really lovely, gave us some great info on the Glaciers and Iceland and clearly loves what he does too. Highly recommend.

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!
