Our cabins in the highlands

Deep in the Icelandic highlands, up in the mountains on the edge of Langjökull glacier, three lodging huts or cabins can be found. It is where we rest our bones, keep our equipment and host events. Two of our huts are located on the east side of Langjökull glacier and one on the west side.

Skálpanes – east side

Skálpanes is a large, timber lodge. With our recently constructed glasshouse next to it, it is the perfect place to host events such as meetings, buffets and weddings. We heat this lodge to keep it warm. It’s also equipped with a kitchen, restroom and enough space to hold up to 100 people.
Next to the hut, we have constructed a base camp where we keep all of our snowmobile equipment and where travelers can gear up before heading out on the vast snowfields.

Jaki is our lodging hut located on the other side of Langjökull glacier. We heat this hut with a generator. It has a kitchen, restroom and enough space to hold up to 60 people. Jaki is popular for incentive groups, film projects, truck tours and is becoming more and more popular for snowmobile tours.

We have a mobile open fire pit which can warm our guest during the cold winter months. The fire gives a great feeling after you’ve completed your tour with us. Please Contact Us and inquire about the fire pit which is available upon request for groups of all sizes.
