Overview

Zip across Iceland’s second-biggest ice cap by snowmobile and visit an ice cave on an 8-hour Langjökull glacier trip from Reykjavik. Ride a snowmobile over the ice toward a glacier cave, admiring the views over snow fields and peaks. Then, descend into the cave on foot to view the blue ice inside the glacier before snowmobiling back. Return transportation, with central Rekyjavik hotel pickup and drop-off included.
  • 8-hour Langjökull glacier snowmobile ride and ice cave visit from Reykjavik
  • 1-hour snowmobile trek across Iceland’s second-biggest ice cap
  • Zoom over the snow and ice led by a glacier guide
  • Stop to visit Langjökull ice cave deep inside the glacier
  • View the cave's layers of blue ice and learn how they formed
  • Small-group snowmobile tour of six or fewer, with required equipment included
  • Round-trip air-conditioned transportation, including downtown Reykjavik hotel pickup and drop-off
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.

This trip was so much fun, the highlight of the entire week we spent in Iceland. All of our tours with Arctic Adventures were so smooth and lots of fun, pick up was easy, drop off was easy they were always right on time. For this tour our driver was a young guy, I wish I remembered his name, he had short blonde hair, no facial hair, he was a blast! We went off roading up the glacier then snowmobiling the rest of the way. Highly recommend this tour!

For a novice, driving the snowmobile is more hard work than fun. Going up into the high country on the glacier is very memorable. The ice cave was not a stand up and walk through experience.

This tour was excellent! the tour guides were helpful and emphasized our safety as a priority. The cave was gorgeous and the snowmobile ride was perfect i.e. not too long, not too short given the cold weather conditions. Would definitely recommend this tour ::
