Full description

Embark on a day trip from Gullfoss, go on a snowmobile through Langjökull Glacier, and feel the adrenaline rush through your body. Admire the beautiful views of one of Iceland’s largest glaciers as you speed through the snowfields.

Meet your guide at the Gullfoss waterfall to start your snowmobile tour through the Langjökull Glacier, available for individuals and groups alike. Transfer to the base camp on the east side of the glacier to equip yourself with a snowmobile and see the landscape from a different perspective. Enjoy an adventurous ride; this is an ideal choice for those with transportation but want to top off a Golden Circle adventure with something special. Professional guides will take you into the Icelandic highlands to give you the most amazing views of the majestic glacier and its surroundings. Grab a monster truck at the Gullfoss Café before you transfer to the base camp. Travel through relatively new scenery compared to the rest of the world’s terrain. Look at a sparsely settled countryside with only a few signs of commercial activity. Arrive at the base camp, and receive the appropriate equipment, such as helmets, overalls, overshoes, gloves, and a hat. Get detailed instructions from the friendly, fun-loving guides, and learn how to operate the snowmobile before you ride off into the winter wonderland.

Enjoy a snowmobile trip for approximately an hour with stops, and the guides carefully review the route selection daily to maximize the experience. Stop and take pictures, catch your breath, and enjoy the silence and the scenery.

Second time to do this. First time (May 2022) there was a lot more snow at the base camp and with clear blue skies we got some amazing pictures. This time (26th Nov) we had to travel a bith further up but it was just as amazing. It was a total whiteout and with the sun breaking through it really felt like you were in a unique place. The guides are excellent and informative and the experience of going on a snow mobile is a must. Highly recommended. We have used Get Your Guide a few times now and they are very trustworthy and reliable.

We had an amazing day and we’re lucky enough to have our guide Ants from Mountineers. He was really informative and gave us a unique tour as there was only us on it. He took us to a great mushroom restaurant and gave us extra time at the secret lagoon. On the glacier we had great fun and the journey there and back was great too.

This is a "just show up and have a great time" activity. You can book the tour directly from the provider, or, I noticed, it can be included in other tours. We easily booked directly. Come dressed normally for the weather -- at the base camp you will be fitted with warm overalls, gloves, and shoe coverings appropriate for snowmobiling on the glacier. The mountain bus trip to the base camp is part of the fun. The actual ride follows the leader in a line, but it is still fun to have control of your own snowmobile and to experience the thrill of blasting across a glacier at the top of the world.
