Itinerary

Information

Snowmobiling on a glacier is the perfect way spend your vacation here in Iceland. You meet at our base camp on Langjokull Glacier (See driving directions) for a 1 hour snowmobile ride on Europe's 2nd largest glacier. Upon arrival to our basecamp your certified glacier guide will provide you with all the snowmobile gear needed for the tour, ensuring that you will stay safe and warm during your 1 hour  snowmobile ride. In continuum your guide will go over how to safely operate the snowmobile before you head off on a 1 hour ride on the glacier. This tour is a unique experience that you should definitely not let slip through your fingers!

If you are not able to meet us at our basecamp, please take a look at our other snowmobile tours which include pick up from Reykjavik or Gullfoss:

Snowmobile tour from Reykjavik
Snowmobile tour from Gullfoss

This tour offers daily departures from our Langjokull base camp. We kindly ask you to meet us there no later than 15 minutes before your departure time. Driving from Reykjavík takes around 2 and a half hour so please make sure you calculate enough time for your drive.

GPS: N64°31.306′ W019°54.251′

The price of the tour is for one person when sharing a two-person snowmobile. For solo or odd number of bookings, you must book a solo snowmobile for 6.500 ISK extra.

If you wish to have a solo snowmobile but do not have a valid drivers license then you can book an extra guide to operate your snowmobile for an additional 40.000 ISK. Please contact our sales desk for further information and booking.

The road from Gullfoss to the Base road is an F-road so please contact your Car Rental in order to see if you are allowed to drive F-roads.

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.

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.

Your safety is our number one priority! Keeping this in mind, Arctic Adventures reserves the right to adjust the itinerary and/or take different routes depending on conditions. Please read more information in our cancellation policy.

Yes, there is a specially trained and certified guide on each of our tours. The only exception to this is for our self-drive tours.

The standard in Iceland is 230V and 50Hz and we use F-type power sockets and plugs, so you might have to bring an adaptor if you are visiting from UK, USA, Canada or other countries using a different voltage, Hz or plugs.

Our tours are split into four different categories that help participants to understand what to expect from the tour. The categories are Easy, Moderate, Challenging and Demanding. Each tour is rated making it easier to find tours that suit you.

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.

Snowmobiling in August!

Reviewed on August 21, 2019 by Simon Hayden From our post-trip system

My friend and I had a great time snowmobiling on the Langjokull glacier. I had never been snowmobiling before, but I quickly got the hang of it and thoroughly enjoyed it. I never thought I'd be doing it in August! The drive to Glacier was great, with our guide cracking jokes and sharing interesting tid bits along the way. I can't wait to go snowmobiling on Langjokull again, and I can't think of higher praise than that. Highly recommended!

Great experience!
