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.

    This was a great experience, the journey to the snowmobiles gave spectacular views and the truck was brilliant! The snowmobiling was fun and the setting was amazing. We didn't explore the ice cave - we'd been emailed prior to the trip to say that some of the cave had melted due to global warming and it wasn't safe so they had managed our expectations with that. I have rated the overall experience as 'good' and not excellent due to how busy the experience was. The room where you collected the kit got very crowded - not great in a pandemic! But the staff managed it the best they could. Dress well for this - they give you kit but if you can layer up you'll make it much more comfortable. Also - switch on the handlebar grip warmers on the snow mobile - it makes the cold more bearable on your hands (the bit that gets the coldest!). The staff were all so friendly, cheerful and helpful.

    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?!!

    Merece la pena porque es muy emocionante y los guías son genial, la única pega es que la moto que nos toco a nosotros estaba mal, los amortiguadores estaban muy gastados y se notaban todas los golpes y además se nos rompió la correa dos veces. Aunque los guías lo arreglaron rápido me hubiera gustado ir un poco más despacio para contemplar el paisaje al atardecer que era espectacular
