What To Expect

After early morning pickup from your downtown Reykjavik hotel or guest house, travel by comfortable, air-conditioned super truck — a large 4x4 specially adapted to drive on glacier ice — to the snowmobile base station on Langjökull glacier, Iceland’s second-biggest ice cap.

On arrival, take in the views over the sparkling glacier and be shown to your modern snowmobile. Then, listen to a safety briefing, and don the provided snowmobiling gear, including a thermal coverall, balaclava, helmet, and gloves. Get instructions on operating your vehicle, and when you’re ready, set off in a small group of six travelers or fewer, led by a certified glacier guide.

Cruise over the glacier and as you gain in confidence, open the throttle and pick up speed. Zip over the ice, and soak in the far-reaching views over the surrounding snow fields and mountains.

Following about 30 minutes on your snowmobile, arrive at the ice cave, and walk to the entrance. Then, descend into the depths to admire the blue ice. Learn about the glacier’s formation and how the layers of ice form its heart, and take photos of the surreal-looking, icy world around you.

After approximately 15 minutes spent exploring the cave, re-emerge onto the glacier and hop back on your snowmobile. Then, rev the engine and enjoy the return 30-minute ride back over the ice to the base station.

Your full-day tour finishes with a drop-off back at your accommodation in central Reykjavik.

Once we got out to the glacier and ice cave it was awesome, but we just didn't get to spend much time out there. I would say we were on the snowmobiles for less than 30 minutes round trip. In addition, we were at the ice cave for about 15 minutes. Beautiful, just wish I could have spent some more time there. the group was also pretty large (like 30 people) and we didn't have the option of picking up our speed at any point. I don't think I would do this again. I can see how the cost is justified because the transportation, gear, and snowmobile included, but they should have let us spend a couple of hours on the ice.

Misleading, not whats on the tin!

Me and my friends did your tour today and although we had a great time we did feel very disappointed as what we signed up to was not what we got. For one it states 1 hour snowmobiling  this is not true, being generous id say 15 minutes there and back. It also states and shows pictures of a cave, and describes this as Langjokull ice cave! We did not go to that cave we couldnt even stand up in the ice hole we were taken in. Langjokull ice cave is much larger and you can walk through it. Also our guide gave us no information as it states on our what to expect list!  Also it stated small group of 6 or less!? there was more then double that which made it extremely frustrating in terms of how fast you could go and how personable the experience was.  All in all we felt totally decieved and misled and although it was still a great experience it was not worth the money.

We where happy with tour guides and the snowmobiling on the glacier how ever we were disappointed with being notified last minute that we would not be able to visit the ice caves. No explanation given util day of when speaking with snowmobile guide. More communications would have been nice.

Best Day Ever!

Experienced guides took us to the ice sheet with confidence as we pondered the conditions. To drive yourself across an ice sheet at 60kmph on a snowmobile was exhilarating and so much fun... to top that off, venturing down in to an ice cave and listen to some local history was just an amazing day! Highly recommend if you have a sense If adventure and the outdoors!

This was one of the most amazing excursions we have ever done. The guides especially EINAR were great. EINAR was outstanding from the moment he picked ya up to getting us up the mountain safely (in less than ideal conditions). Very attentive worth every single $$$

We had a good drive up to Gullfoss waterfall where we then transferred to a superjeep. Now that was an experience in itself - bit of off-roading, great fun and felt well safe with James our guide at the helm. Upon reaching the snowmobile base, we were made very welcomed by the crew. They fitted us out with our gear and then gave us an overview as to how to drive the snowmobile. After also going through the safety rules, off we went - well WOW, what an experience from the very start. Exhilarating is an understatement, It probably took us about 30 minutes to get to the ice cave, but it wasn't long enough. Then the ice cave, not as big as I'd expected but quite spectacular - our guide was very knowledgeable and he was more than happy for us to spend as long as we wanted in it. Then the ride back to base, again pretty amazing whizzing over the glacier with nobody else other than our group in sight. Hot drinks and an abundance of biscuits awaited us once we'd finished posing for photos in our overalls and helmets sat on the snowmobile. It was an amazing experience and one I'm really glad I didn't miss. Many thanks to all of the staff for making it such an interesting and fun-filled trip

My daughter and I had a lot of fun. This was our first time snowmobiling. Our guide Mardis was professional and fun. She took good care of everyone. Arctic Adventure provided us all the gear for the trip. Highly recommend!
