From Gullfoss: Langjökull Ice Cave and Snowmobile Tour

1. From Gullfoss: Langjökull Ice Cave and Snowmobile Tour

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.

Professional guides will take you into the Icelandic highlands to give you the most amazing views of the majestic glacier and its surroundings.

What people are saying about Highlands of Iceland

From beginning to end, the snowmobile tour is a 4 hour activity with 30 minute transit per direction, one hour snowmobiling, and additional time for gearing up. My partner and I had an absolute blast! Neither of us had been snowmobiling before and it was a great first experience. We went on an incredibly foggy day but the glacier and nearby mountains were stunningly beautiful. We didn't do a ton of research going into it but were surprised by how large the group was (~40 people) since we booked the Gulfoss pick-up version, so your experience will vary based on who you follow and where you are in the single file snowmobile line. The guides were attentive and made everyone feel very safe! If you're experienced and want to get a thrill, I would probably book the other version of this tour.

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.

Brilliant staff, friendly and knowledgeable, very well organised. Wonderful experience.

Great guides, good planning and a sensational nature experience. Highly Recommended
