Your certified glacier guide will then show you how to safely operate a snowmobile before your one-hour excursion officially starts. Langjökull is home to several enormous ice-filled volcanic craters, rimmed in by imposing volcanoes and set in the breathtaking Icelandic interior. The views from the flanks of Langjökull are quite incredible. In the distance rests Eiríksjökull glacier, the highest mountain in west Iceland, the dome-shaped Hofsjökull glacier, and Kerlingafjöll Mountain range.

Our tour guide was Martinez who was fantastic and is the only female monster truck driver based in Gulffoss- girl power! Martinez was so helpful and informative and drove us up to the snowmobiling base on the Glacier. All the snowmobiling staff were very helpful and provide you with all the necessary kit. Once in a lifetime experience I would highly recommend!
“Langjökull Glacier Snowmobiling”
Tour guide Tate picked us up right on time. Drive 30 minutes to where we got our suits for snowmobiling. They were hilarious to wear but kept us warm and we had a fun photo shoot! Continued to drive another 30 minutes to the glacier. Got on the snowmobiles and drove around for an hour. Driving was so fun and the amazing views were even better. Such a fun day, great for groups or couples. Definitely a must if in Iceland.
We had a brilliant day out snowmobiling o the Langjökull glacier from Gullfoss. A great family experience on fantastic equipment with excellent guides…truly unforgettable.
