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.

Review of: Glacier Snowmobiling and Ice Cave Tour from ReykjavikHonestly, 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 🙂
