Itinerary

The meeting point is at the Húsafell center or Klaki base camp. When arriving from Reykjavik, please give yourself at least 2 hours to reach the meet-on location point. Check-in is 30 minutes before your tour starts. At Húsafell Center, you’ll have a chance to grab something to eat and use the restroom, before we make the short drive to Langjökull Glacier, where our adrenaline-pumping snowmobile ride takes place.

The snowmobiling adventure is available to everyone and you don’t need any previous snowmobiling experience to take part. Our certified guides will provide you with all the equipment that you need, demonstrate how to use the snowmobiles and deliver a quick safety briefing, making it ideal for beginners and experts alike.

As soon as we get onto Langjökull you’ll be greeted by a seemingly never-ending expanse of white snow stretching far into the horizon. Glaciers are constantly on the move – creating an incredible landscape filled with deep moulins, beautiful ice falls and craggy crevasses. Your friendly guide will tell you more about the natural history of glaciers and how they’ve helped to make Iceland so unique. You’ll also get a chance to take some incredible photos of the surrounding mountains and volcanoes, ensuring that the tour is truly memorable.

Then there is the snowmobiling itself – a liberating experience that will allow you to escape the chaos of the modern world and become one with nature. Enjoy the feeling of gliding across the pristine white snow and the adrenaline rush that you get from twisting in and out of this natural wonder. We’ll spend around 20-25 minutes riding on the glacier and then head to the ice tunnel that is hidden in its icy depths.

Two people ride each snowmobile. If you are on your own or wish to ride solo, you need to book this and pay for an upgrade. All snowmobile drivers need to bring a valid Driving License.

The price of the tour is for one person when sharing a two-person snowmobile. Please choose the solo ride option when booking in odd numbers. Also, if you want to ride alone on the snowmobile, select the “solo on a snowmobile” option.

You must book a solo snowmobile for 6.500 ISK extra for solo or an odd number of bookings.

If you wish to have a solo snowmobile but do not have a valid driver's license, then you can book an extra guide to operate your snowmobile for an additional 50.000 ISK. Don't hesitate to contact our sales desk for further information and booking.

Note: We cannot guarantee that the actual view during your visit will match the photographs since ice caves are a natural phenomenon that undergoes constant change. How they look may vary depending on the season, time of the day, lighting, and other factors.

Kolviður forests are strategically planted to absorb the maximum amount of CO2 and the forests are protected for a minimum of 60 years. During their lifetime the trees absorb carbon and store it in their root system, trunk, and branches. Trees also prevent soil erosion and maintain storage of carbon in the soil.
