Affordable Golden Circle & Snowmobiling ​Day Tour

See Iceland's most iconic attraction and take a wild snowmobile ride on this incredible day tour. You’ll take in the sights of the famed Golden Circle and then plant your feet on the pedals of a zippy snowmobile, to spend an hour whizzing across the colossal ivory snows of Langjökull Glacier, the second-largest glacier in Iceland.

Snowmobiling on Eyjafjallajokull

Join the snowmobiling adventure of a lifetime and whizz over the mighty Eyjafjallajökull glacial volcano, while getting a gorgeous view over Iceland's spectacular South coast. While the glacier is amazing from below, nothing beats experiencing it from its surface, especially at high speeds. This tour is the perfect option for those looking for a scenic, fun ride, exploring and experiencing the wilderness, the glacier and the breathtaking views over south Iceland. Eyjafjallajökull is Iceland's sixth largest ice cap with a summit elevation of 1,666 metres (5,465 ft). It covers the caldera of a volcano which has erupted relatively frequently since the last glacial period, most recently in 2010 when its eruption caused enormous disruption to air travel across western and northern Europe. There is, however, no need to worry - the glacier is monitored closely and tours will never be conducted there if it shows the slightest signs of preparing for an eruption. Your guides will take you through all the fundamental safety procedures and equip you with special clothing and helmets. They then provide you with everything you need for a safe and comfortable ride. You'll dress up in a snowsuit and hop into a super jeep that takes you onto the glacier. Once there, you will be matched with a snowmobile and head out onto the glacier. The snowmobiles are easy to drive, as it is just a matter of squeezing the accelerator or the brake. Snowmobiling on top of Eyjafjallajökull glacier is an extraordinary experience and this 2-hour snowmobiling tour is the perfect length of time for experienced and first-time riders alike  (about 1 hour on the snowmobile). During the ride, you will not only intimately get to know the essence of one of Iceland's most stunning glaciers, but you will also be exposed to stunning landscapes and views that are sure to leave memories to last a lifetime.

Golden Circle Classic Tour with Snowmobiling | English Tour Guide & Audio Guide in 10 Languages

Explore the three classic sights of the Golden Circle and top it off with snowmobiling adventure. This tour is available in 10 different languages, made possible with an ‘in-Bus Audio Guide’. This trip begins at Reykjavík Terminal or you are picked up from your Reykjavík accommodation. You will be impressed to see that, other than your personal host, there is a tablet on each seat with audio guide in 10 languages, wifi on board, and an excellent, expert guide, who will be on hand for any questions. Once your group is together, you will set out to see the Golden Circle. The first stop on this iconic trail is Þingvellir National Park, the only UNESCO World Heritage Site on the Icelandic mainland. This was the original site of the world’s longest-running, ongoing representative parliament, and where many of Iceland’s major historical moments occurred; it was here that the country converted to Christianity, declared independence from Denmark, and elected their first president.  Þingvellir is also renowned for its position in the North Atlantic ridge, between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Iceland is the only place in the world this ridge can be seen above sea level, and there is no better place in the country to see the edges of the two continents than here. Following your time at the park, you will move onto the Geysir Geothermal Area. This hot-spring valley is visible from miles away due to the steam rising from its waters and vents, and is world-famous for its geysers. While the most known one, Geysir itself, rarely goes off anymore, its neighbour, Strokkur, erupts every ten minutes or so, to heights of up to 40 metres (131 ft). The third and final stop on the Golden Circle is just five minutes down the road: the mighty Gullfoss waterfall. This fall is immense, powerful, and incredibly beautiful, plunging in two tiers down an ancient valley. When the weather is clear, it is possible to walk to a viewing platform right beside where it's falling, so you can truly marvel at its awesome power. With the Golden Circle complete, it is time for some adventure. You will change from your bus into a custom-made Super Truck, which will take you across the desolate, stunning Highlands to the foot of Langjökull Glacier. Here, you will find the snowmobiling base camp. Once safety rules have been covered and you've put on the appropriate gear, you will hop on a snowmobile and start your journey across the ice. This exhilarating excursion is thrilling, fascinating and beautiful; Langjökull is Europe's second largest glacier, and the views atop it, across plains of endless white snow and blue ice, are breathtaking.  This tour perfectly combines classic sightseeing with thrilling adventure. Don't hesitate to book. Jump aboard to hear all about the Golden Circle in the language most comfortable to you, and for a snowmobile ride over a stunning glacier.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Snowmobile Tours in Iceland

Snowmobiling is a popular activity in Iceland, made possible by the country's great number of glaciers and wide snowy plateaus. On snowmobile tours, you explore some of Iceland's most dramatic landscapes while intimately connecting with the country's arctic features. 

1. On what glaciers can I go snowmobiling?

Snowmobile tours are operated on Langjökull glacier and Mýrdalsjökull glacier. Langjökull is located near Gullfoss Waterfall near the Golden Circle, while Mýrdalsjökull is located near the town of Vik along Iceland’s South Coast.

2. What landscapes can I expect to see on snowmobile tours?

Snowmobile tours generally take place on top of glaciers where high elevations often present sweeping panoramas of the surrounding scenery. You’ll be able to see the wonderful terrains of Iceland’s incredible landscapes from a higher altitude, weather permitting.

3. How fast can the snowmobiles go?

That depends on weather, ice and snow conditions and the experience of your group.

4. Do I need previous snowmobiling experience to join the tour?

No, the guides will teach you how to operate the snowmobile on site. It is, however, advised to read up on the rudimentary equipment.

5. Do you need a driver license to operate a snowmobile?

Yes, you will need to have a full international driver's license to display before your tour to the tour provider. You must also have been driving for at least one year. 

6. I forgot to bring my driver's license. Is a photo/email valid?

No, the driver's license must be shown before departing on the tour. If you’re travelling with a friend who can prove that he is licensed to drive, you can always enjoy the tour in the passenger seat.

7. Do you need a motorcycle license?

No, a motorcycle license is not necessary.

8. What equipment is provided?

You will be provided with everything you need to go snowmobiling in Iceland. Your guide will present you with warm overalls, a balaclava, a helmet and gloves.

11. Do I share a snowmobile with another person?

If you booked for two people, the two of you will share one snowmobile and have the chance of taking turns driving.

Snowmobiling in Iceland

Snowmobiles are All Terrain Vehicles (ATV) operating on rubber tracks and steered with incorporated skis. In Iceland, they are ever popular for transportation but also for recreational purposes. If you have ever driven a quad bike, then you may already be familiar with the basic drive of a snowmobile, although you can look forward to a far smoother and serene experience.

11% of Iceland is covered in ice, and the country boasts Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull. The journey to this coveted destination is breathtaking by itself for its prodigious mountains and deep valleys. Speeding across this natural wonder on a Vatnajökull snowmobile tour is really the only way you get to genuinely experience the enormity and endless nature of this graceful giant.

The West is home to Europe's second largest glacier, Langjökull. Just north of the Golden Circle, Langjökull is the most popular glacial and snowmobiling destination. Gullfoss itself it fed primarily by meltwater from this gigantic ice-cap and there is no better way to get to know Langjökull than by snowmobile. Its proximity to Reykjavík really leaves no reason not to visit Europe’s second largest glacier and snowmobiling excursions can be done in combination with a tour of the golden circle.

Glaciers are dangerous terrain especially since cracks in the ice can form crevasses which are not always visible, so it is necessary to have a guide show you the right way through the ice. Luckily enough, plenty of guided snowmobile tours take intrepid thrill-seekers zooming safely across the ice and snow.

Snowmobiles do not require trails or roads and often, hitching a ride on the back of a snowmobile is the only way to access the infinitely snowy wonderlands waiting to be discovered.

The snowmobiles that you will be driving here in Iceland can reach speeds of 70km/h (44mph), guaranteeing a good flow of adrenaline complementing the breathtaking landscapes. The open-air experience of being in the driver's seat—feeling and hearing the wind rush past you as you dash through the landscapes—offers an unforgettable feeling of involvement with the stunning surroundings.

Iceland’s captivating glacial landscapes give you the opportunity to snowmobile all year round, even in the summer. The midnight sun offers you precious time flexibility as well as the stunning glow of warm sunbeams against the contrasting frozen plains.

Snowmobile tours are not just limited to exploring Iceland’s many beautiful glaciers. You can also book tours of well-known attractions in the winter, and whizz through the snow and ice in captivating areas such as on the frozen lake Mývatn.

The weather in Iceland is a keen topic for locals and an informing factor as to whether or not a tour is possible; so be prepared to be flexible. It is also necessary to mention that the Icelandic driving laws apply no differently to snowmobiles so there is a zero-tolerance policy on alcohol consumption.

Seeing your favourite attractions on snowmobile really offers an experiential involvement with the stunning landscapes Iceland has to offer all year round. Not only can you reach destinations otherwise inaccessible but you can do so whilst embracing the extreme and exhilarating sport of snowmobiling.
