What To Expect

Your snowmobile adventure begins with pickup from Gullfoss Café, located beside the natural wonder of Gullfoss Waterfall. Board a climate-controlled vehicle here and drive to Europe’s second largest glacier.

Each snowmobile can accommodate one driver — who must hold a valid driver’s license — so decide who’ll be taking the wheel during your safety briefing on arrival at the Langjökull glacier.

Then, once you feel suitably prepared, set off on a ride past the frozen crater lakes and icy landscapes of the glacier. On a clear day, you’ll be able to see Eiriksjökull glacier, Hofsjökull glacier, and the Kerlingafjöll mountain range in the distance.

Following your adventure, return to base camp to change and then relax during the return ride to Gullfoss Café, where your tour concludes.

Unbelievable Adventure
Jason_B, Oct 2021
Amazing adventure with skilled guides in a small group setting. Highly recommend this to anyone even thinking of snowmobiling!
Not worth the money - 20min in slow motion on snowmobile
Jenskumar_S, Jan 2020
I was expecting one hour in a small group on snowmobile. Rather it is a tour where you see a ice cave and then go there by going 20min slow on the snowmobile. Do not recommend.

This was a fantastic tour put on by We own snowmobiles and these machines are newer and in fantastic shape. I wish this tour was longer for the price but don't we all. The staff was fantastic. Our bus super truck broke a rim on the return as the ride to the glacier is not easy 2 ft snow drifts up mountains and the whole time our driver kept everyone calm and informed. Would highly recommend bringing your own good shoes, mittens, and face hood if you have one. I am small and things were quite big.
