An exciting snowmobile adventure tour on Langjökull, Iceland´s second largest glacier and a visit to a totally magical natural ice cave. This is the ultimate glacier tour from Reykjavík – experience all that Icelandic glaciers can offer!
Our service desk is open every day From 8:00 am – 07:00 pm GTM. You are always welcome to send us an email using our contact form. Our friendly customer service will assist you every day during business hours.
Your snowmobile and ice cave adventure starts when we pick you up in Reykjavik. You are driven through the very attractive South Iceland countryside to our snowmobile base camp at Langjökull Glacier. Your certified glacier guide will provide overalls, helmet and all the gear you need, give you a safety briefing and a few straightforward snowmobile driving instructions. You are then 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 a majestic white land. Langjökull is known as ‘The White Glacier’, glaciers are predominately white but Langjökull is just so incredibly white. Make the most of the journey but feel your spine tingle in anticipation as you approach the natural ice cave – you will not be disappointed.
Before winter comes our glacier guides begin their exciting search for the new Langjökull Ice Cave. All ice caves are really special but some are more special than others! This year our Langjökull Ice Cave is a totally spellbinding stunner – we can absolutely promise you that this is the best ice cave yet. Remember, this is ‘The White Glacier’, well, our Ice Cave displays the most amazing bright jewel blue ice imaginable. The ice-ceiling above you resembles a brilliant blue river, the ice is so exceptionally translucent, it seems as though you are surrounded by pure blue-hued quartz crystal jewels. 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 to enjoy the rare and precious crystalline blue beauty of this amazing natural ice cavern.
Outside, your trusty snowmobile is waiting. Skimming across Langjökull you journey back to the Snowmobile Base Camp. At the end of your spectacular full day snowmobile and ice cave adventure we will drive you back to Reykjavík, dropping you off where we picked you up.
This tour includes pick-up from your accommodation or a nearby authorized meeting point in Reykjavik. Picking everyone up can take up to 30 minutes, your patience is much appreciated. Available pick-up points:Arctic Adventures’s pick-up list.
What to bring: Warm layers, weatherproof top layer, headwear, gloves, scarves and sturdy hiking shoes. Warm overalls are provided. We recommend that you bring a packed lunch along as well.
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. For solo or odd number of bookings, you must book a solo snowmobile for 6.000 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.
You do not need previous snowmobile driving experience. Your guide will provide easy to follow operating instructions.
However, you do need a valid Driving License if you intend to drive. If there are two of you, only one of you needs to bring a Driving License but if you both bring one, each of you can take a turn at driving.
We don’t exactly have a weight restriction but participants need to be able to fit in our winter overalls. The largest size we have is 5XL. As for the physical level, the tour is listed at the level moderate and anyone in average physical condition should be able to complete the tour without any trouble.
Ice caves are ever-changing natural phenomena that are only accessible during winter when the temperature drops well below zero, so the water from the rivers that run underneath the glacier freezes and leaves us with this phenomena to explore. Each year, new caves are formed in different locations. We will visit the best available naturally formed ice cave during this tour and the cave we visit is chosen based on conditions and safety each time.
Iceland is known for colourful weather. It can sometimes show you all 4 seasons in one day.
Dressing for this sort of weather can be a challenge so we always recommend dressing in layers. 3 or 4 upper layers are highly recommended such as a light t-shirt (preferably wool) next to the skin, then a fleece or heavy wool garment, topped off with a waterproof windbreaker.
Jeans are not recommended for our trips as they become very heavy, cold and uncomfortable to wear when they get wet.
Lightweight hiking pants, track pants or long cotton pants are best and then wind/waterproof pants over. We also recommend using sunglasses and sunscreen even if it is cloudy due to the high UV and sunlight reflecting off of the glacier.
You will need sturdy hiking boots that fit crampons for the glacier hiking tours. If you do not own a pair then we rent out good hiking boots as well as a waterproof raincoat and trousers.
This is, of course, a personal choice, we have often had pregnant women on our trips. We recommend you take a close look at our trip description and difficulty rating, they will hopefully give you a better idea. It is also good to contact your physician, pregnant women’s health can be quite different. Feel free to contact us if you have further questions or concerns.
Review of: Glacier Snowmobiling and Ice Cave Tour from Reykjavik
Honestly, this was hands down the best part of my trip. Snowmobiling in these remote areas is a dream come true. The guides were tons of fun, we took a super jeep to get there and back and they had all the equipment we could want. It was truly a once in a lifetime trip and I HIGHLY recommend. Don’t hesitate – book it today 🙂

"Great day!" | By Ingrid Muxworthy 27/01/2018
I did this tour with my mum and brother so I went on the snowmobile solo and felt very well prepared by the guides (I had never been on a snowmobile before)! The whole day is very well organised and although we got a bit stuck in the snow on our way back to Reykjavik this only lasted 10 minutes and added to the experience! Great day trip!
"Fantastic tour" | By Rebecca Capps 30/01/2018
The tour guide was really friendly, kind and had a fab sense of humour. The snow mobiles are easy to drive and everyone stays together the whole time. The cave was amazing although I did feel there was maybe a few too many people on the tour but only because it was a little cramped in the cave. The clothes they give you are really warm and we never felt the cold even though it was snowing a lot. I would highly recommend this tour as it was great fun. You need you bare in mind that you are on the snowmobile for an hour and although this does not sound ling you may ache a lot the day after, so keep this in mind when deciding what day to do this. Great tour Definately would do it again
"Best Ice Cave Tour Experience" | By Zhen 02/02/2018
You will be briefed about how to operate. then got to ride the snowmobile 20 mins each way, going and returning from the Ice cave! Dont be scared and push that thorttle button hard!
"This tour was great! " | By Kylie 07/02/2018
This tour was great! The tour guide was hilarious and kept us well informed what we were doing and what was expected. The only downside was it was cold on the first bus, especially on my feet! All the people around me felt like they had frost bite on their toes. Then when we actually got the snowmobiles, you weren't around to ride them around, we just had to go straight to the ice cave and back in a single file, slow line. Overall the views were beautiful and the service was wonderful.
"Thoroughly enjoyable!" | By Tony Ancell 25/02/2018
"Highlight of my trip" | By Raj 01/03/2018
I was saddened by the fact that I couldn't see the northern lights. However, the snowmobile adventure blew my mind. It was beyond my wildest dreams. My wife and I had a pure blast. I know it's a little pricey but it's worth every dollar. DO IT. You won't regret it.
"Would recommend this to anyone" | By David Jackson 01/03/2018
A very enjoyable day out. I would go again and would recommend this to anyone
"We had so much fun snowmobiling and the ice cave was very interesting" | By Carolyn Dyer 06/03/2018
This was a splurge for us, but I'm super glad we did it! We had so much fun snowmobiling and the ice cave was very interesting. Part of the excitement they don't mention is the ride across the glacier to get to base camp. Our experienced guide drove us to base camp on a "road" that was melting and tricky to navigate, and their specially modified vehicles plus his skill as a driver made it fun and safe! The next day we saw in the news about a group who went on this same road who had to be rescued when their vehicle slid off the road and got stuck. Boy, was I glad we picked Arctic Adventures!
"Unbelievable tour" | By Dave 06/03/2018
The snowmobiling and ice cave tour was unbelievably good and we really enjoyed it. Very professional and friendly staff, who managed to put the tour on, and negotiate the tricky roads, despite battling against the weather. We received detailed and prompt emails a day before the tour regarding a change to the time of the tour, which really helped. We would definitely do it again if ever back in Iceland!
"Amazing trip" | By Robbo 16/03/2018
Snowmobiling and ice cave was awesome. Great guides, great equipment and a breathtaking trip. It was even more amazing as i proposed to my partner in the Ice Cave and she said yes!! A truly life changing adventure! Skál Robbo
"Snowmobiling" | By Ellen Colgan 17/03/2018
Fast snowmobiles! Beautiful sunny weather. Not a cloud in the sky. Driving orientation was very clear and helpful. We loved Schuli and his cohort. (We called her H-R.) Van was warm and comforttable. Lots of laughs and education about Iceland. Thank you. Ellen and Tim.
"Great tour!" | By Meghan Lowenfield 18/03/2018
I loved the tour! The guide was funny and knowledgeable, and everything was well organized! The snowmobiling was so much fun, and the ice cave was very cool! My only suggestion is maybe adding to this tour some golden circle sites! We passed the Gullfoss waterfall and the geyser on the way there and back, and I wish we had a few minutes to see both of those!
"So much fun!" | By Cara M. Crownover 19/03/2018
The tour was great and we really enjoyed the snowmobile ride to the ice cave. The guides were really amazing too. We had a little hiccup because one of the other 4x4 vans broke down so we had to wait a little at one of the tour stops so that they could send a non-4x4 bus for us to take us back to Reykjavik so our 4x4 could go back up to the glacier. But it gave us all a chance to see the waterfall, which wasn't on our tour, and the company did their absolute best to get everyone going again as soon as humanly possible. It really was a first-class experience and a first class company!
"Fantastic experience, fantastic company" | By Amy Feasey 19/03/2018
I don’t usually leave reviews but after this unbelievable experience, the phrase praise where praise is due comes to mind. I want to start by thanking our guide (martis?). Home grown, incredibly welcoming and very funny. It was my first tour in Iceland, and martis was so informative. She regaled us with tales of her youth and Icelandic culture as we drove to the glacier. Pointing out interesting sights and giving us information about the glacier. On the drive to Langjökull we stopped at gulfoss waterfall and the geysir for quick breaks, and so they could prepare the truck for off-roading through snow but martis gave us enough time to quickly check out the sites there too! Bonus! From gulfoss we then drove on the back roads and off road in our monster truck. Martis handled the truck like a badass, giving us a great experience in itself! So much fun. At the glacier base camp we’re kitted out with neon orange overalls which make for fantastic photos then introduced to our trusty steeds! After a safety briefing and a tutorial on how to drive the snowmobiles we were off. Our group was meant to be a huge group of 20+ (Made up of two tours combined) but the other group was running late so we ended up being a small group of just 12 ish with 2 guides which was great. They let the more confident ones go off quickly at the front, following single file behind a guide and the other guide stayed back with the slower less confident ones. This worked well as I wasn’t held back by the ‘slower’ ones and could go for it up front with our guide leading the way. The safety briefing explained that if at any point you get into trouble or can’t see the group. Stop where you are and they will come fetch you as they can track you on the GPS. So you always feel safe and in good hands. We had heard it was possible to flip the snowmobiles but the route was perfectly flat and great for fast long straights. Just go gentle on the turns. Half way we stop off at the ice cave which they joked they had lost due to the snow and had to re-dig out! this was stunning and a great experience. The guides take your safety seriously and ensure you don’t slip. Then we hopped back on the snowmobiles back to the base camp We were incredibly lucky with the weather, clear blue skies and breathtaking views. The next few days were rainy so I’m very glad we caught the best of the weather Thanks again martis and arctic adventures for giving us a fantastic experience. I would 100% do this again next time I come to Iceland.
"Snowmobile Ice Cave Tour" | By Chares R. Hall 26/03/2018
Thank you Arctic Adventures for an amazing tour! It was truly one of the best days of my life. Our guide was great! He was very informative and did a great job from when we were picked up until we were dropped off. He was a wealth of information on Iceland and had a great sense of humor. It was nice being picked up right from our hotel. It was a nice scenic drive to Gullfoss. The Super Jeep ride to the snowmobile base camp was incredible in itself! The scenery while snowmobiling on the Langokull Glacier to the ice cave was amazing! The ice cave was incredible. One of the coolest things I have ever seen. Thanks again for an incredible trip that I will never forget. I would recommend Arctic Adventures to anyone who is looking for a great time in Iceland.
"Glacier and Snow Mobiling" | By Jana Planz 26/03/2018
Great day out! Fun & action
"Amazing experience" | By Dushica 06/04/2018
"The highlight of our trip and I would highly recommend to everyone that you undertake this 'once' in a lifetime experience. Only thing I would recommend is that you take some nibblies or a packed lunch and definitely a drink! But don't hesitate and definitely do it! I have told everyone about this experience and it will live with me forever! Thanks Arctic Adventures Team who were truly fun and entertaining"
"A Wonderful Tour!" | By Carly Nelson 10/05/2018
We absolutely loved this tour! Definitely something that I will never forget. When else are you going to be able to snowmobile on a glacier during a snow storm!? I will definitely recommend this tour to anyone and hope to be back one day. Thank you Arctic Adventures!
"Best experience ever" | By Ann-Sofie 20/05/2018
During my time in Iceland this was absolutely the best tour. Your guide was so funny, the snowmobiling was amazing and the ice cave was stunning. Thank you for the best time
"Snowmobiling on Glacier" | By Richard 23/05/2018
This excursion is a must do when you go to see Iceland mountains and glaciers. They properly outfit you for the experience and it will be one of your best memories of your trip to Iceland. The guides are great, the super trucks are a blast, and the small ice cave is a special treat. We are still talking about it.
"Best Part of Our Trip!" | By Don Bates 30/10/2018
This was our 3rd day out of 8 in Iceland and it was BY FAR the best experience of the trip. Our tour guide, James, was very interactive and fun to be around. The snowmobiles were very fun to drive and the glacier was amazing to see. 10/10 would do again and recommend to anyone traveling to Iceland.
"Amazing experience" | By Izuchi 30/10/2018
Definitely, something I would recommend to anyone when the topic of Iceland comes up.
"Exciting, Thrilling , Not to miss" | By KH Lim 16/11/2018
The guide was puncture and friendly. Professional. Knows their stuff well. Good clean overall. Tour well organized. Great to enter a natural ice cave. Very accommodating people! Wonderful experience.
"Snowmobiling" | By Ray W 18/11/2018
This was our third Arctic Adventure excursion. We went snowmobiling. It was everything we expected. We got a pickup in the time window and were able to see some of the golden circle highlights during the tour. The ice cave was very natural so it was a lot smaller than what we envisioned from the ads we saw on the internet. Overall, a good trip and good value.
"Best day in Iceland!" | By Kendal 20/11/2018
The Ice Cave and snowmobile tour was the best thing we did in Iceland!! The snowmobile was awesome, felt unreal driving over the glacier with just snow and mountains all around. Our tour guide was awesome, and loved how he stopped in the way home to show us some Icelandic horses and a beautiful waterfall. Couldn’t have done anything better, thank you for the best day Arctic Adventures!
"Wonderul adventure" | By Sarah Hanrahan 20/11/2018
We did snowmobiling and ice caves day tour. Words cant explain what a wonderful time we had. The guides took time to explain the snowmobiles to us and we never felt like we were holding up the group. The ice cave was just breathtaking. Would definately recommend this tour
"One of the best excursions" | By Marissa 22/11/2018
"If anyone if thinking of booking this trip then you must book! its an amazing experience. The guides was very experienced, caring and always able to answer any questions you have. The glacier and the Ice cave was amazing! At the end of the trip they give you a hot drink and biscuits which was a nice touch to me and my cousin. You must book this trip!! I haven't stopped talking about it to my family friends work colleagues. Thank you to our driver, guides, lady in the dressing room for such an amazing experience one I will never forget. Marissa"
"Brilliant experience - brilliant team!" | By James bouch 22/11/2018
"I can’t recommend artic adventures highly enough - this was an amazing experience from beginning to end. It’s not the cheapest but represents true value for money. All the guides were knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about their company and Iceland. Our trip was slightly unusual as when we got to the snowmobiles they were snowed in!! After 10 mins watching the team trying to dig them out some of us we offered to help - straight away the team trusted us to dig, pull, take apart and re-build the snowmobiles to get them ready for the tour. It was a brilliant team effort, and although we started 90 mins later than planned the tour wasn’t compromised in any way. An amazing experience and an amazing company - thank you!!"
"Multiple Tours - Glacier Snowmobiling Tour / South Coast Tour with Glacier Hike" | By Binna & Shane 26/11/2018
"Amazing experience in Iceland in general. The tours we booked with Arctic Adventures made our lives easy and the guides were great. Would highly recommend to first-time travelers, or those who are planners and don't want to worry about anything other than getting to the pick-up location upon arrival to their destination. Glacier Snowmobiling & Ice Cave Tour - This was by far the best tour. The snowmobiling was excellent. The guides were easy to follow and did everything they could to make it an awesome experience. The ice cave flooded due to some rains so they made an extra stop to take pictures with a beautiful view when we snowmobiled back. Binna & Shane"
"Snowmobiling / Ice cave from Reykjavik" | By Zach Deuerling 01/12/2018
Me and my wife had a wonderful time on this tour! It did take about 8 hours with a fair amount of driving but it was well worth it! Would definitely recommend!
"Well worth it!" | By Sarah Sordo Vieira 06/12/2018
Excellent tour with beautiful views of the glacier and ice cave. A lot of driving, but well worth it. The snowmobiling was a little rough sitting in the back with my husband driving, but he had a blast! The tour guide was helpful and gave a thorough safety lesson before snowmobiling. You can’t see these views on your own, and this tour was well worth it!
"Fantastic Trip" | By Kevin Gillan 08/12/2018
Great trip getting to drive the snowmobile across the Glacier and being able to tour the ice cave. The guide was great providing knowledge as we traveled up to the glacier about the places passing. Was also looking to see if there was going to be northern lights on the trip back so could stop.
"Appreciative" | By Lynn 08/12/2018
Our guides were incredibly kind and professional. I'll recommend Arctic Adventures to everyone planning a visit to Iceland.
"Glacial Magic!" | By Sam Heke 09/12/2018
"I sat on the fence wondering whether to book this tour and wow I’m so glad I did, one of the best experiences I have ever had! Arni was so knowledgable and a great guide from start to finish...he timed the Geysir perfectly as we drove past, he was great on the glacier and he even turned on the northern lights as we returned home! What a magical day"
"Experience of a lifetime" | By Neil Williamson 11/12/2018
Amazing experience from start to finish..couldn’t recommend this tour enough..one of the best things myself and my wife have ever done..our tour guide Arni was excellent,very helpful and really funny as well whilst also keeping our safety in mind..worth every penny
"Brilliant experience" | By Linda Vint 17/12/2018
I have got to admit I was a little hesitant about this trip, not the ice cave just the snowmobiling. So we agreed that my daughter would drive as she didn’t want to be the slowest. I did wonder what on earth I had agreed to as we set off with my daughter determined to keep up. She claims she didn’t hear my cries for help! It was though absolutely amazing snowmobiling across the glacier and I am glad I was talked into it. The ice cave was also something you would never see. We both enjoyed everything about the trip. Our guide Quentin was helpful and interesting, they all were. The safety instructions etc were very clear and the suits and helmets kept out the cold very well. Would I do it again, yes absolutely, but think I would drive next time
"1st Time in a Snow Mobile!" | By Linda Lyon 17/12/2018
"This was my 1st time on a snow mobile so didn’t really know what to expect. It was so cold and windy the day we went but hey I guess that’s the norm for Iceland glaziers! The snow mobile was much faster than I expected and being a passenger with my partner who’s not very big - I was terrified! The guides were brilliant at reassuring me and I got to ride back with a guide due to my fear which helped me no end, as there was no way I wanted to get back on my partners but had no choice as they told me they couldn’t get a car out there to get me! So all in all I would recommend and may return one day to do this again now I know what to expect."
"Incredible experience!" | By Yesi 18/12/2018
I highly recommend doing the earlier tour I did the on that started at 12pm and it got dark way too fast but I was still able to enjoy the view, scenery, and overall snowmobiling experience, it was just hard to capture the moment in picture or camera due to lighting. However still so much fun! experience of a lifetime me and my boyfriend had a really good time! The ice cave is smaller than I expected but the staff is so nice and funny and will help you capture great photos there.
"Snowmobile and Ice Cave" | By Sarah K Whitley 24/12/2018
What a wonderful time we had traveling on the snowmobile and entering the natural ice cave. The instructions for operating the snowmobile were perfect and our guides were very conscientious in keeping everything safe as we traveled to the magnificent NATURAL ice caves. The cave was beautiful and we were allowed plenty of time to take pictures and enjoy the beautiful striations in the ice as well as the ice tower in the making. Thanks for making our trip to Iceland so memorable. My husband and I, my daughter and my grand daughter will always remember this very special experience. Sarah
"Amazing experience" | By Madeline Salha 26/12/2018
This was my favorite experience in Iceland. The views we're absolutely breathtaking. The gear they provided kept me warm, and I didn't even have on a ton of layers like most people did. I have never been snowmobiling and I am not a very confident driver in general, but it was fine. I stayed in the back so I could go at a slower pace, and I was just careful about turns and whatnot. The ice cave was small, but still very beautiful. The guides we're very nice and helpful. My friends and I loved this experience! I did this tour in December for reference.
"Incredible experience!!!" | By Martin Barnard 28/12/2018
Did the snowmobiling excursion in December 2018 and it was utterly incredible!! Extremely well organised, everything ran on time, guides were brilliant and very helpful. The equipment is all modern and up to date and all clothing is in good condition. Anyone thinking of doing this should do it. Yes, its not the cheapest of activities, but its worth every penny!! 10/10!!
"Excellent tour" | By Toni Blezard 29/12/2018
This tour is a must if in Iceland. Booking was very easy and communication via Facebook was reasonably fast ( I had a few questions). We were picked up promptly from our stop and the vehicle was beautifully clean. Our guide was fantastic! IV forgotten her name but she's the queen! She was funny and very informative with lots of stories on our journey there. The snowmobiling was unbelievable. We had so much fun and for a first time they cater for all abilities. We stopped half way to go into the glacier which was beautiful and was allowed plenty of time to view it. On returning to the base came hot chocolate, tea and biscuits were provided to warm us up...not that we even got cold but was still tasty. All in all it was a great experience and would highly recommend not just this excursion but this company also. Other groups were larger and impersonal and cost relatively similar.
"True Adventure" | By Angela 06/01/2019
Our family of 4, including 2 young children, enjoyed our day on this tour. The pick up was prompt and the tour guide was great. Snowmobiling was a fun first and the ice cave was amazing. However, a few things that surprised us were that the snowmobiling didn't begin until it was completely dark outside again and the experience would have been more amazing in at least twilight, we had no concept of where we were driving. The equipment given to us was protective against the wind but not the heavy precipitation. We were completely soaked and freezing at the end of the adventure and wearing our own gloves would have been better. Thankfully, the staff took great care of our children and helped us all to warm up with hot chocolate and time in front of the heaters at base camp before driving home.
"Great fun!" | By jeffery bosch 11/01/2019
"We took the snowmobile and ice cave tour. The tour and tour guide were excellent. The drive up to the glacier and on the glacier were great but the snowmobiling was unbelievable. What an adrenaline rush. Our three early twenties children had the time of their lives. Unfortunately the ice cave had to be canceled due to flooding. No fault of anyone."
"Extremely pleasant" | By Tomika 12/01/2019
I can’t remem our tour guides name. Maybe Ramone, not sure but he was very pleasant and informative he explained everything b/4 it happens. He also wish me a happy bday. I will absolutely recommend them to everyone know going to Iceland.
"Fantastic experience. Great trip!" | By Alice 16/01/2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our time snowmobilling with Arctic Adventures. Unfortunately, we couldn’t do the ice cave part due to the weather but we were promised a partial refund for this. Great guides, very helpful, informative and funny! Snowmobilling is exillerating and lots of fun... worth the money! I reccommend paying extra to rent the snowmobilling boots! A must do excursion whilst visiting beautiful Iceland!
"Excellent trip, entertaining guide" | By Lynn Jones 23/01/2019
We would definitely recommend this trip, they provide all the clothes and equipment you need, all the staff we met were really friendly
"Arty our guide was amazing!!! He had such a great personality and made us feel very welcomed. We had such an amazing time, we would definitely recommend it!!!!! Renee Georgia"
"Absolutely exhilarating snowmobile ride to ice caves." | By Niles Donegan 29/01/2019
I highly recommend this tour - my 10yo daughter and I had an enormous amount of fun on it. It was also a little scary at times as I'd never driven a snowmobile and it was difficult to know if my daughter was still holding on as a passenger behind me. But she held on tight, and we were treated to a beautiful ice cave under a nearby glacier.
"Fun tour" | By Mike Metzenroth 29/01/2019
Snowmobiling was really fun and the ice cave was beautiful. We were picked up at our hotel right on time and everything we needed was provided. The tourguide was terrific too. My only complaint is that the bus was quite cramped but otherwise everything was great.
"An adventure from start to finish" | By Steve 02/02/2019
From pick up to drop off the whole thing was excellent. We had a 10/10 day weather wise which made the snow mobiling excellent.
"Great tour" | By Cortney 05/02/2019
Our tour guide was so nice! It was one of the best things we did while we were in Iceland, by far. I definitely recommend it!
"Must do!" | By Jessica Hammerton 05/02/2019
The perfect experience for my Husbands 30th birthday. The guides where whitty, charming and very knowledgeable. The trip was perfectly run, and we was surprised just. How much time You had on the snow mobiles! We enjoyed spending the day with you and ive reccomended this as. A must do your if you visit Iceland. Thankyou!!
"Amazing time" | By Alyssa 07/02/2019
This was such an exhilarating experience. I was nervous about not being able to drive the snow mobile being the prissy girl that I am but it was so fun! I will say that riding in the back as the passeneger was an entirely different feeling; I felt like I was going to fly off every couple of minutes. My arms were so sore due to holding on for dear life. However, I am not someone who enjoys rollercoaster rides or anything of that matter so if you do enjoy that kind of stuff, you’ll love it (just like my husband did)! Overall I’m glad I did it.
"Awesome experience. Absolutely recommended" | By Aakash Savla 19/02/2019
If you've not driven a snowmobile this would be an experience of a lifetime. Going inside the glacier to see the ice cave is an out of the world experience. Our guide was very informative as well.
"Awesome adventure" | By Patricia Halliburton 19/02/2019
I’m so happy we were able to take this adventure. It was one of my favorite experiences while in Iceland. All of our guides were amazing with in-depth knowledge and experience. Our guide who drove us went above and beyond. He was a brand new father returning to work for the first day in three weeks. A snow storm blew in while we going to the ice cave so the roads on the way back were more difficult to get through when returning. Several vehicles got stuck including ours. Our wonderful guide never complained or got frustrated he continually helped to get us unstuck as well as helping others even when the vehicle was a different excursion company. We were extremely impressed with his patience and persistence. I would highly recommend this adventure!
"Awesome Experience" | By Poe Hills 20/02/2019
"Pick up was spot on time. Our Super Truck was held up by 30 mins due to adverse conditions. 30 mins isn't that long. You understand you cant control the weather. BUT you're held up at Gulfoss so WHO CARES!? Being held up and having time to go see Gulfoss was an added bonus to the day. Getting us all into arctic suits must have been like herding cats but they managed in good time. Not our 1st time on a snowmobile (different company). However this lesson was far more detailed. Good teacher. Trip across to the glacier was awesome and controlled. Ice cave was as stunning as expected. Pedro's knowledge was much appreciated. They even helped with lighting to make sure everyone got good pictures. Good to come back to coffee and biscuits. Felt safe the whole time. Felt looked after - making sure people had access to loo breaks all of the day. Everyone was approachable and welcoming. I would totally come back and do this exact same tour again and bring my friends."
"Snowmobile and ice cave tour" | By Nic Dyer 21/02/2019
"Great tour, well organised and we felt safe for the whole time. A unique experience that is well worth the cost. We were well looked after and the cave experience was very different to other caves we have been in. The snowmobile ride had its challenges, reduced visibility due to snow and iced up goggles but so enjoyable. If you get a chance you should do the tour because riding snowmobiles is so different to other forms of transport. The super Jeep ride was really good too. Going through deep snow really tested these extraordinary machines but you knew that our driver was experienced in how to handle the conditions. A great experience."
"Fantastic experience" | By Colin Christie 22/02/2019
"Our guide Einar got us into the mood for a fun day with an on time pick up from our hotel as it was a full day tour. The setup at the snowmobile base was well organized with safety instructions for everyone regardless of experience. The 2 person snowmobile was ideal for my wife and l will guides supervision across the snow and ice the entire time. The ice cave was a very ""cool"" experience with the natural ice forms from the glacier and the expert guides knowledge of glaciers and caves adding to the experience. After the trip back hot chocolate and biscuits to warm up before heading back to Reykjavik. Fantastic day."

It was a great experience all the way around and was a must do adventure while in Iceland.
"Best Day Ever!" | By Stephanie Long 28/02/2019
The trip was seriously one of the very best day trips I’ve been on during my travels around the world. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and good humoured. He picked us up in a huge and I mean huge, 4x4 mini bus and we tackled the snow drenched roads with ease and a lot of laughs. The crew kitted us out in warm suits and boots and were really enthusiastic about their jobs. Snowmobiling was AWESOME as we raced over the glacier. It was just white all around. You felt as if you were on an amazing adventure. We then descended into an ice cave under the glacier before zooming over the glacier again, back to base. It was a day I’ll never ever forget. Our brand new mini bus broke down on the way back but our guide saved the day and had a replacement bus pick us up only 20 minutes later. He tackled the problem with great Icelandic humour and grace. Well done Arctic Adventures yet again!
"Extremely Professional" | By Carel Estrada 05/03/2019
We booked the tour to go snowmobiling. I wasn't thinking much of it. Our drive up to the mountain was insane. The skill of our guide was impeccable. Any other person would have gotten stuck in the snow. James was awesome. Other tour companies got stuck in the snow that day. After dropping us off at basecamp, our van driver went out to help pull them out of the snow. After he pulled them out of the snow, he took our group out onto the glacier and into the ice caves. It was an amazing day with many new experiences. I was very impressed with the professionalism shown by the entire Arctic Adventures staff, up on the mountain.
"Awesome Adventures" | By Klair Phillipoff 11/03/2019
Even if you never snowmobiled in your life, do this tour. Where else are you going to snowmobile on a 600 year old glacier to an ice cave?! The guides are very fun and professional, Quinton was lovely to talk to, Bjorn was fun and pretty sassy ha ha. Overall I had a great time!
"Snowmobile and Natural Ice cave at Langjökull" | By KandA 17/03/2019
We enjoyed the experience. We had a clear day and the views form the glacier were spectacular. This was our first time riding a snowmobile. They provided a briefing before beginning the 30 - 40 min ride up to the ice cave. I would like to suggest to add a quick stop half way for the guides to check how everyone is doing beyond rising your hand if you have an issue.
"Best experience ever !!" | By Ana 20/03/2019
This tour was fantastic !!! Its a must do if you are visiting Iceland. So much fun we had, definitely something I would do again.
"Fabulous snow experience" | By Warren Roane 21/03/2019
Our guide, Hans, was very knowledgeable and we had a fantastic time. We view the snowmobile experience on the glacier as the highlight of our trip to Iceland. We would do it again as it was definitely worth it.
"Brilliant" | By Caroline Pearson 24/03/2019
Great trip, well organised, guides great. Would definitely recommend.
"Amazing adventure with a well organized group" | By Sarah Nguyen 25/03/2019
Snowmobiling with arctic adventures was the highlight of my time in Iceland. They were so well organized, and our guide the "little mermaid" was fantastic! She picked me up at my hotel, and then we went to a meeting place where we transferred to their big wheel vehicle to drive into the glacier. When we were on the glacier, it was pretty much a white out, but conditions were still good enough to go out. We had about 18 people in the group. I was a single rider and at 115 lbs by myself, it was a bumpy ride. I would recommend 2 people if you have that option. Would highly recommend Arctic Adventures!
"Overwhelmingly amazing tour" | By Tia Gillon 22/04/2019
What’s not to love about this tour. Snowmobiling was easy to learn and we took in some amazing views while drifting across the snow. The ice cave was a natural beauty and our tour guide was fantastic throughout.
