Meet us at our Base Camp for a snowmobile tour on Europe’s second largest ice cap.
We offer snowmobile tours for individuals and groups from our base camps at the east side of Langjökull Glacier. This is a great choice for those who have their own transportation and want to top off the Golden Circle with something extra special. Our professional guides will take you on a snowmobile adventure in the Icelandic highlands, giving you the most amazing views of the majestic glacier and its surroundings.
Once you arrive at our base camp you will receive the appropriate equipment, such as helmets, overalls, overshoes, gloves and a hat. Our friendly and fun-loving guides will give you instructions on how to operate the snowmobile and go over the safety procedures before you ride off into the winter wonderland.
Our snowmobiles are double-riders and children are welcome to ride as passengers as long as they have reached the age of six.
Please note: The drive up to the glacier can be difficult to negotiate and is only passable by the general public from June and until October. A part of the route is a gravel road only suitable for 4×4 vehicles.
