Glacier Ride

Snowmobile Adventure to Langjökull

We will pick you up from cafe Gullfoss and take the fast route to the Langjökull glacier.  Arriving at our mobile glacier base camp we will gear you up in warm glacier overalls, gloves and helmets. The specially trained glacier guides will then show you how to safely operate the snowmobiles on the glacier before going for a great one-hour tour on the glacier. Langjökull is Iceland’s second biggest glacier; it is 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 staggering. You will see the steep Eiríksjökull glacier, the highest mountain in west Iceland, the dome shaped Hofsjökull glacier in middle of the highlands along with the Kerlingafjöll Mountain range. The Glacier Ride is a scenic and fun glacier tour, easily available from Reykjavík.
