  • From Reykjavik: Hot Spring, Ice Cave & Snowmobile Tour

    1. From Reykjavik: Hot Spring, Ice Cave & Snowmobile Tour

    Driving through the Geysir Hot Spring area with its boiling mud pits and spouting hot springs, you will head straight toward Langjökull Glacier for a snowmobile tour. The surrounding snowfields will take your breath away while you enjoy the thrill of dashing across Europe’s second largest glacier. Continue to a glacial ice cave, going over 300 feet deep into the ancient ice. Marvel at the layers of ash from past volcanic eruptions. For your last stop of the day tour in Iceland, be taken near the small village of Flúðir. Ease into a secret outdoor lagoon, a natural hot spring, for a luxurious bath to soothe all your cares away.

    Snow mobile was a lot of fun. We did not get to go to the ice cave. Not really an explanation of why, the guide said people were checking it out and we never heard anymore. The secret lagoon was good, nice and warm. Very crowded for a winter's afternoon.

  • Húsafell: Langjökulll Glacier Ice Cave Tour

    2. Húsafell: Langjökulll Glacier Ice Cave Tour

    Experience Iceland’s second-largest glacier from the inside and enjoy the rare sight of blue ice at the heart of an ice cap glacier on this half-day tour.  All tours depart from Húsafell, from where you will catch a shuttle to the Glacier Base Camp, Klaki. You will meet a professional guide and gear up in warm overalls if needed, before boarding a specially-modified glacier truck for the drive up to the cave entrance. Arriving at the cave entrance, head inside the glacier with your guide. The man-made Langjökull Glacier Tunnel is a wonder to behold. The ice is lit up from behind by glowing hues, allowing you to see the layers that have formed over many years. Your guide will walk with you through the glacier's corridors where you will have a chance to learn about geology, the history of glaciers, how they are formed and how they move.

    Such a unique experience - an absolute “must di”. It is a long day - be ready for 4 hours - and dress warm!

    On this adventure tour, combine glacier snowmobiling and a natural ice cave visit on Langjokull Glacier. Start by gearing up at the base camp before going over safety features regarding your snowmobile ride. When you take off, head to the glacier to start your adventure. After about a half hour of riding, reach the ice cave. Park the sleds and walk to the cave while taking in your great surroundings.

    Very good and enjoyable and good fun, very informative guide Herman, make sure your helmet is tight on your head before you start, my partner had to put a hood up halfway to stop it moving about .

  • From Reykjavik: Langjökull Glacier Ice Cave Tour

    4. From Reykjavik: Langjökull Glacier Ice Cave Tour

    Depart Reykjavík early and head to Langjökull Glacier. Upon arrival, marvel at the 953-square-kilometer land of ice (the second largest glacier in Iceland). You will travel aboard a new bus equipped with computer tablets in each seat for your convenience. Make use of the GPS-sensitive in-bus audio guide (available in English, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Japanese, Korean, Chinese Mandarin and German), along with a USB charger and free Wi-Fi. Then, get ready to stand on top of a vast ice-cap and descend into the icy netherworld of a glacier. You will journey to the ice cave aboard a huge, specially-modified 8WD truck. Discover a man-made tunnel of ice in a remote area of the glacier at the very heart of Iceland. Listen as your guide explains how global warming has started to impact the glacial environment. Then, go on an amazing journey deep within the glacier, and see and ...

    Wow, Wow, Wow! I highly recommend this tour. It was so fun! I highly recommend going. The trucks you ride in to get to the cave is unique and fun to ride in. The guides do a nice job of telling information about the cave, and of answering questions. They provide you with clamp-ons, and a hiking pole if needed. So, you feel comfortable walking on the ice. It is a unique and memorable way to spend the day.

  • Langjökull Glacier: Ice Cave and Snowmobile Tour

    5. Langjökull Glacier: Ice Cave and Snowmobile Tour

    Park your car at Gullfoss Café and be stunned by the monster trucks and super jeeps from that await your arrival. Your driver will greet you and then begin your journey to the glacial highlands of Iceland, from Gullfoss to Langjökull glacier. Enjoy the epic scenery on the way. There is a usually impassible road but the massive machinery eats through it, which is an adventure on its own.  Once at the glacier, step out of the monster truck and into the glacier hut to collect snowsuits and other accessories to keep you warm during the snowmobile ride. When suited up, head to the rows of snowmobiles. The guide will go through the details of how to operate the snowmobile, which is quite easy. After the introduction, select your snowmobile and wait for the guide to signal to go.  Ride along the glacier with good visibility to emerge in epic surroundings of lava formed rock mountains. A total...

    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?!!

What people are saying about Langjökull Glacier

Great experience! The adventure begins with the drive over the ice in the specially prepared vehicle. Everything was well organized. Our tour guide did a really great job and guided us through the tour in a very personable way! As expected, it is wet in the glacier, but the right clothing will ensure that you stay dry :)

This was a remarkable tour up to and into the glacier. Be ready for the cold and dress for cold and wet conditions. Our guide and drivers were amazing!! Memory of a lifetime!!!

The tour was impressive and fun. Also a little reminder that we are responsible if we can no longer visit such great glaciers because they no longer exist

It was cold and good. The guide was very helpful to arrange us another tour in the lava cave instead of the tour that we missed. Thanks every one.

Great experience on the glacier, everything is planned to have a good time without getting cold!
