Full description

Park your car at Gullfoss Café amongst the monster trucks and super jeeps. Meet your driver and begin your journey to Iceland's glacial highlands, from Gullfoss to Langjökull glacier. Enjoy the scenery on the way. Watch the massive machinery eats through the impassable road.

Upon arriving, step into the glacier hut to collect snowsuits and other accessories for warmth during the snowmobile ride. The guide will explain how to operate the snowmobile, which is easy to navigate. After the introduction, choose your snowmobile and wait for the guide to signal to go. 

Ride along the glacier with good visibility to emerge surrounded by lava-formed rock mountains. A total whiteout is always a possibility, and often more fun. The ride will take you to the newly discovered ice cave with a custom-built entrance for ease of access all winter long. 

Building access to this mysterious world of ice creates a safe environment and highlights the natural beauty of the ice cap from within. Explore every corner of the cave with your guide. Head back to the glacier hut and take the monster truck for a return ride through the snowy terrain to Gullfoss.

    First I want to say, when booking on this website, be sure to notice that you can change the currency rate on a tab in the upper corner, I did not see this and was charged more than expected. Luckily, I was able to speak with the customer service team and they refunded me based on my currency that I had thought I was paying, which was very good of them and much appreciated. The experience was amazing! We went in December and had a great weather day, although windy and chilly but great day for a ride. You are given zip up suits, gloves and a helmet. The cons: The staff wasn’t the friendliest and wish we could have snowmobiled a little more off course, but I understand the safety of it. The ice cave was cool but small so you don’t spend much time in there. Overall, it was a lot of fun and an amazing experience, how many people can say They snowmobiled on a glacier?!!

    A unique experience

    It is worth it because it is very exciting and the guides are great, the only drawback is that the bike that touched us was bad, the shock absorbers were very worn and all the blows were noticed and also we broke the belt twice. Although the guides fixed it quickly I would have liked to go a little slower to contemplate the landscape at sunset that was spectacular
