This was the BEST DAY EVER! The guide was super friendly, was very clear on timings and every was organised and on schedule. The snowmobiling was the best experience during our time in Iceland and I would definately recommend it! The guide was also entertaining and told us about Christmas in Iceland which I enjoyed. Thanks!

I would highly recommend to everyone to do the snowmobiling when in Iceland it was an unbelievable experience. All I would say was it felt slightly rushed at some of the viewing points so we can could reach the activity in time but understand why this is needed due to the shorter days. The whole tour was fantastic.

Brilliant experience, from the guides and drivers to the sights and snowmobiling. I was cautious about joining a tour but as I don't drive it was necessary and I need not have worried. Daggi (our guide) and Magnus (driver) were wonderful, sharing interesting facts and stories with us throughout as well as well as a dry sense of humour. The snowmobiling trip was extremely well organised, with warm clothing provided. The monster truck driver Snaebjörn drove blind in the wet snow showing incredible skill, and then showed us how to operate the snow mobile, and then he, Heidar and a third guide whose name I missed looked after our group well and still had time for snowball fights with my son and selfies. Thank you all so much! P.s. I saw an earlier comment about driving in a boring circle and I'd just like to say, yes we drove a circut but it was not a circle and given the weather and lack of visibility it was thrilling yet safe. I recommend this.
