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 man-made ice cave that is hidden in its icy depths.
Before and during activities on the multi-day tours consumption of alcohol is prohibited. If we suspect that a participant is intoxicated, we will prohibit them from joining the activity.
After the activities of the day are finished, you are welcome to have a drink and relax.
Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Elding has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summertime).
Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs. Most of our super jeep tours are also suitable for children over the age of 6 years old. If you would like a nice and relaxing experience we would also recommend the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon tour.

We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at the time of booking.
The Kolviður Fund is the oldest, most respected carbon offsetting program in Iceland. With your support, one tree will be planted in special Kolviður forests in Iceland to carbon offset your tour with us.
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.
