Along the way your guide will share with you lots of information about the areas you are passing through. Whatever your start point you will pass through really sensational and varied Icelandic scenery on your way up to our snowmobile base. Of course, we stop at any places you have chosen to include in your itinerary!

Your snowmobile guide will provide you with an insulated suit, safety helmet and a powerful Lynx Adventures 600 CC or Polaris IQ LXT 550 CC snowmobile. A few snowmobile operating instructions and you are away on your spine-tingling and goosebump raising adventure. This is a truly mesmerizing trip which can be amazingly exhilarating or more serene – with a private tour you get to choose. There is no better way to explore the stunning white majesty of Langjökull, the 2nd largest glacier in Iceland. This icecap covers 953 m2, and rises to 1450 m, higher than the magnificent mountain peaks in the area. You will have the trip of lifetime!    

Depending on the start time and location and any extra sightseeing or activities you have chosen your return will be some time between late afternoon and late evening.

Why not join us for a night in the wilds of the Icelandic Highlands at Kerlingafjöll? Relax in the hot spring pool as amazingly colorful rhyolite peaks mystically frame the horizon. There is nowhere better to enjoy the bright Icelandic summer nights. In winter, so far from city lights, on a clear night the stars shine unbelievably bright, as soft clouds of steam waft from the surface of the water. If your northern lights luck is good, the magical aurora might paint the sky.
