Full description
Drive yourself from Reykjavik, or your accommodation in Iceland, to Húsafell. During winter, always use road 1 towards Borgarnes and road 50 and 518 to Húsafell. After arriving in Húsafell, head directly to the base camp, Klaki.

Meet your guide at the base camp and get set up with your gear. Hop on your snowmobile and drive into the ice tunnel of Langjökull. In the summertime, snowmobiles will be waiting on the glacier and you will transported by a glacier-vehicle to their location.

You will be accompanied by an experienced snowmobile guide who will teach you how to operate your vehicle. Inside the tunnel, you'll receive a guided ice tunnel tour, which runs about an hour. After the tour, drive your snowmobile back from the ice caves to the base camp or the glacier-vehicle. 

Please note that in order to drive a snowmobile, you must have a valid driver's license. The tour may run longer than scheduled, depending on the conditions on the glacier. Driving time on the snowmobiles is around 30-40 minutes (weather permitting).
