Once you reach our base camp our guides will help you gear up for an exciting 1-hour snowmobile ride.

"Great experience, highly recommended"
Snowmobile was top, service is very well organized, the guides are very pro and friendly, making sure you are enjoying as much as possible the activity. The glacier is amazing
“Went snowmobiling .... in the sun!”
Perfect day! Perfect reception! Perfect time!
The guys were great! Helpful, informative and made sure we were happy, safe and having a good time.
The equipment was all A1 and we could not have wished for better.
Would go with these guys again and really appreciated the experience.
“Snowmobiling to the Glacier with pickup from Reykavik”
Great adventure, excellent staff made us feel safe and comfortable. Snowmobiles were all new, so no problems with Equipment. Dress warm, but they will provide all outwear required for the trip.
Our driver picked us promptly at the hotel and made sure we saw all the sights on the way to and from Gulfoll, where you pickup additional customers for a short trip to the starting point. He pointed out all the different cultural and other attractions and was very friendly and knowledgeable.
This is a guided tour to and from the glacier, so do not expect that you get to go joyriding on the snowmobile. Easy for beginner drivers with no prior experience on a snowmobile.
