Itinerary

Your adventurous day starts when we pick you up at the arranged place and time. Depending on your booking option, we will pick you up in Reykjavik or Skjól Campground, located not so far away from the famous Gullfoss Waterfall. Then we'll head up to Langjökull Glacier, Iceland's second largest glacier, in the Icelandic Highlands in our Super Truck. On a clear day, the views are incredible. You will be able to see Eiríksjökull Glacier (the highest mountain in west Iceland), Hofsjökull Glacier, and the Kerlingafjöll Mountains.

A certified glacier guide will provide all the necessary snowmobiling equipment, including overalls and a helmet. After that, your guide will give you a safety briefing and basic straightforward snowmobile driving instructions. The amazing thing about snowmobiling is that no prior experience is required! After a short briefing, you are ready to ride - driving a snowmobile is easy, but feel free to ask any questions before you roar off.

Your stunning 1-hour snowmobile ride will take you across Langjökull Glacier, the second largest glacier in Iceland, rising to 1450 m above sea level. Feel your excitement and adrenaline soar! Your snowmobile tour on Langjökull will feel like a magic carpet chase across the roof of majestic white land. Glaciers are predominately white, but Langjökull, known as 'The White Glacier,' is incredibly white. Make the most of the journey but feel your spine tingle in anticipation as you approach the natural ice cave – we promise you will not be disappointed.

As winter covers the ground, our glacier guides begin their exciting search for the new ice caves in Langjökull Glacier. All ice caves are exceptional, but some are more special than others! This year the Langjökull Ice Cave is an absolute stunner – we can promise you that this is the best ice cave yet. Since Langjokull is nicknamed 'The White Glacier,' its ice cave displays the most amazing bright jewel blue ice imaginable. The ice is so exceptionally translucent that it seems as though pure blue-hued quartz crystal jewels surround you. The ice around this 'blue river' is white, bearing very unusual subtle gray 'zebra striping,' formed from the ash layers of various volcanic eruptions. You get about 15 minutes to explore and photograph the cave and enjoy the rare and precious crystalline blue beauty of this amazing natural ice cavern.

Outside the cave, your trusty snowmobile is waiting, ready to skim you across Langjökull to our Snowmobile Base Camp. After a one-hour tour, we will drop you back at Skjól Campground.

The Glacier Snowmobiling and Ice Cave tour from Skjól Campground is a great way to experience the best that Icelandic glaciers can offer.

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 a 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.

Snowmobile & Ice Cave Tour In Iceland

FAQ

Meet on location means travelling to the location of the tour yourself and then meeting our tour guides rather than being picked up and taken to the location.

This is a great question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated. This is because you may well be the first pick up of the day. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.

Here you should wait for your guide.

Have your email and phone number listed with us so we can contact you if we run into any trouble finding you.

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.

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.

No, full drivers license is required to ride a snowmobile.
