Snowmobiling from Reykjavik

Your snowmobiling adventure starts in Reykjavik where you will be picked up by one of our expert snowmobile guides. Our journey continues towards Langjökull, Europe’s second largest glacier and the home of our base camp. Riding the super jeep on a glacier is a fun and exciting experience in itself. Once you reach our base camp our guides will help you gear up for an exciting 1-hour snowmobile ride. We will then go over the safety briefing and show you how to operate the snowmobile safely and confidently. When everyone is ready we will then head out to the ice cap for a fantastic adventure.

Langjökull Glacier 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. This tour is sure to create some memories with its beautiful scenery.

Provided: Snowmobile suit, balaclava, gloves and a helmet.
What to bring: Thermals (top and bottom), warm socks, weatherproof top layer, headwear, gloves, scarf and hiking or snow boots.
We recommend that you bring a packed lunch along as well.

Pick-up & drop-off: This tour includes pick up & drop off in Reykjavik, please be ready for pick up at your selected pick up location.
Note that the pick up can take up to 30 min.
Available pick-up points: Arctic Adventures’s pick-up list. If you would like to meet us on location instead, check out our Snowmobiling tour from Gullfoss.

Please note

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.

How is it best to be ready for a pick-up for a tour with Arctic Adventures?

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.

View our pick-up locations in Reykjavík.

Can I drink alcohol before or during Arctic Adventures tours?

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.

Do you offer any family friendly tours, for younger children?

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 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.

Can the itinerary for the tour change?

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.

Is there a guide on each Arctic Adventures tour?

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.

All of our tours are guided in English.

Can the guide advise if I am eligible for rescheduling the tour and/or a refund?

No, for all your questions and concerns you would need to contact our customer service.

What type of power outlets are used in Iceland? Do I need to bring an adapter?

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.

How are the tours rated in terms of difficulty?

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.

For further information about the difficulty ratings and descriptions.


How does carbon offsetting work?

We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at 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.

If I have never driven a snowmobile before, can I still participate?

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.

Can you go on a snowmobiling tour in the summertime in Iceland?

Yes, you can. The plus side to being a cold country is that our glaciers are here all year around and we can go snowmobiling in every season.

Are there any weight restrictions for the snowmobiling tours?

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.

Are their any places to use the toilet at the glacier snowmobiling base camp?

Yes, we have toilets at the base camp where the tour starts that you are more than welcome to use before and after. Unfortunately we cannot offer any bathroom breaks during the tour itself.

What clothing is provided for the snowmobile ride on Langjokull glacier?

We provide you with an overall, a balaclava, goggles, gloves and a helmet. This Equipment is all included in the price of the tour.

What do I need to bring for my snowmobiling ride on Langjokull glacier?

First and foremost warm clothing.

Upper body: Thermal shirt and a fleece or a thick sweater over.

Lower body: Warm pants.
If you get easily cold, also thermals.

Shoes: It’s best to wear boots as it’s pretty cold on the glacier and they can get wet.

NOTE: You need to bring a lunch or some snacks. Lunch is not included in the tour.

I am traveling by myself, do I need to pay the single ride supplement?

Yes, if traveling solo you will need to purchase the single ride extra.

Is there an age limit to go snowmobiling on Langjokull glacier?

Yes, there is, safety is always our number one priority and after looking closely into this the age limit was set to 8 years, of course in company with a guardian.

I'm pregnant, am I able to participate in one of your snowmobile tours?

Due to safety reasons, we do not recommend women that are already 3 months pregnant to participate in our snowmobile tours.

Glacier Snowmobile tour from Reykjavik | Average rating: 4.7/5 based on 14 customer reviews

"Snowmobile adventure" | 3 stars By Lorna Furber 18/03/2018
An amazing experience & visiting the ice cave was a treat. My only criticism would be the journey from Reykjavík- it’s 3 hours+ to the glacier & the bus had a problem with the door closing and I was colder on the bus than the snowmobile!
"Snow mobile/ ice cave tour" | 5 stars By Audre Maguire 20/03/2018
The snowmobile experience was our favorite thing we did in Iceland. Along with snowmobiling we got an ice cave tour. Our guides were very knowledgeable about the glacier and ice cave. I haven’t risen a snow mobile in years and was comfortable on the machine.
"Memorable and enjoyable" | 4 stars By Angela 22/03/2018
Great guides making my first snow mobiling memorable and enjoyable
"Excellent" | 5 stars By Sandra Hernandez 02/04/2018
The best experience
"A fun arctic adventure" | 4 stars By Jen 12/04/2018
I would definitely recommend this tour as a great addition to your Icelandic adventures. The guide was fun and informative. The snowmobiling site was a beautiful place to ride and then going down into the ice cave was an unexpected cool surprise. The coffee and treats at the end was a really nice touch. Riding in the Super Jeep out to the glacier really added to the adventure. A great day of arctic fun!!
"Awesome Experience" | 5 stars By Anthony Miller 30/09/2018
It was a good experience from start to finish. Driver arrived pretty much on time at pick up location. Drive to glacier was long but comfortable. Stopped for bathroom break and food both ways. Driver was down to earth and fun. Snowmobiles were in good condition. Just overall a fun day!! My only recommendations would be is to add WiFi to shuttle van and better snacks at end of the tour.
"The best experience!" | 5 stars By Emiliano Ventura 20/10/2018
"I took the tour of the snowmobiling with Roan or Ron, don’t know how to write the name haha, and the peninsula one with Alberto. I had the best experience ever, I mean everybody were super punctual and the guides were just amazing. Sometimes the trips could be a little bit long, but this guys always try to give the best experience to the client. Everything went even better than expected. You can get in touch with me in case needing further information, but if you have the chance, you should book your tour with artic."
"Highly Recommend" | 5 stars By Rich 24/10/2018
I would highly recommend this tour. The tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Not to mention getting to see the beautiful country.
"Excelent experience!" | 5 stars By Jose Chavez 03/12/2018

"Best trip" | 5 stars By Yvonne O Connor 26/12/2018
This trip is a must do :) best experience ever and all guides helpful
"What a thrill!" | 5 stars By Mohamed 15/01/2019
For first timers, we were stressed out! Looking at the size of the snowmobile wasn't helping but the guides were brilliant. Coming as a group but we were separated into three smaller groups. Ours particularly, we had one guide just for us!we were either too slow or perhaps they were worried that we won't make it back to base camp lol Our guide was brilliant, we followed our own path, which I think suited best for us, and we didn't have any accidents whatsoever which was a great relief! Thank you arctic adventure, loving every single second of it!
"Excellent Time" | 5 stars By Jamie 17/01/2019
"We were picked up in Reykjavik, in a comfy tour bus, and headed out to Gullfoss for the superjeep pickup. The ride was fine but it is long. Once we got to the pickup spot, we were shuttled up the road to the base camp for our gear and sleds. We opted for the 12:30 run and in retrospect, I wish we would have gone earlier because it was obviously dark by the time we finally got to the glacier and the landscape wasn't as visible. The tour itself was fun - I mean how often can you sled across a glacier - and the folks running the tour are really nice. We plan to return and will use them again for another tour......"
"What a day" | 5 stars By Peter Deabrook 23/02/2019
This was something that I had wanted to do for a long time and I wasn’t disappointed. The trip was well organised and all the staff were great. The views were amazing and the ice cave was stunning. Overall a 10/10 day a must do trip if you visit Iceland
"Awesome" | 5 stars By Emma Nicholson 12/03/2019
"Pick up and drive to the glacier was long but well worth it. Had an amazing day and was brilliant fun. The glacier cave was stunning. Quentin was a great guide as were the others at the lodge. Would highly recommend and if I ever come back to Iceland that will be my top trip to do again."
