Glacier Rush Snowmobile Tour. Mountaineers “SnoMo” trips are suited for those that have some recreational vehicle experience.

Description

Wilderness snowmobiling on Langjökull, Europe’s second largest glacier on our most powerful snowmobiles, Yamaha Vipers.
The snowmobiles offered in this tour pack more than double the horsepower than the snowmobiles used in our regular tours. This tour has a higher pace and greater thrill for those that want to get the blood pumping.
This tour is always run in smaller groups.

  • 1-hour snowmobile tour
  • Overalls, gloves, helmet, hat, and overshoes
  • Pick-up from Gullfoss Cafe
  • Drop-off at Gullfoss Cafe

*Food and shoes not included.

  • We cannot accommodate for two passengers per snowmobile in these tours since the Yamaha Viper snowmobiles are single-riders only.
  • If you want to be picked up from your hotel in Reykjavík, please select “Yes, we would like to be picked up” below. You will then be picked up between 8:30 am and 9 am at your pick-up place.

Itinerary

For the Rush Seeking Traveller!

Mountaineers “SnoMo” trips are suited for those that have some recreational vehicle experience. You will be provided with a powerful Yamaha Viper snowmobile, a three-cylinder 1000cc machine with approximately 140 horsepower. These snowmobiles have more than double the displacement that we offer in our other non-SnoMo tours. These performance snowmobiles are single seated mountain machine monsters capable of literally all snowy terrains.

More Private

We do not operate the glacier rush tours with our regular tours and therefore, you will be able to travel faster, further and experience more. Our professional guides will tailor your trip according to weather and terrain and you will experience the glacier as the locals do on their own performance machines. This tour is the true glacier rush!

Our friendly and fun-loving guides will give you instructions on how to operate the snowmobile and go over the safety procedures before you set off into the winter wonderland. For this tour, we only use our most skillful and professional guides.

Meeting point

The meeting point is at Gullfoss Cafe. A direct drive from Reykjavík to there takes about 2 hours.

Varnir gegn smitsjúkdómum.

Íslenska

Okkur hjá Mountaineers of Iceland er mjög hugað að öryggi og heilsu starfsmanna og viðskiptavina okkar.  Það er okkur mjög mikilvægt að halda öllu hreinu hjá okkur.  Í einu og öllu förum við eftir hreinlætisplani sem er í öryggisáætlun okkar og tilmælum Landlæknis er varðar hreinlæti.

Þar af leiðandi höfum við gripið til þessa ráðstafanna vegna Covid-19 og annarra sambærilegra smitsjúkdóma:

- Áður en sest er upp í faratæki okkar þurfa allir að sótthreinsa á sér hendurnar. Einnig áður en komið er í starfsstöðvar okkar við Langjökul til að klæða sig í viðeigandi fatnað.
- Viðskiptavinir fá allir hrein buff (höfuðklúta) til þess að fyrirbyggja snertingu við hjálma.
- Við reynum eftir bestu getu að tryggja að það sé 2 metrar á milli viðskiptavina. Við biðjum einnig viðskiptavini okkar að virða 2 metra regluna.

Allir snertifletir eru þrifnir nokkrum sinnum á dag og einnig eru gallarnir og hjálmarnir spreyjaðir með hreinsiefni eftir notkun með efni sem heitir Virkon. Það er sótthreinsandi efni og drepur alla sýkla sem það kemst í snertingu við. Buffin og hanskarnir eru svo þrifin í lok dag og einungis notuð einu sinni á dag til að koma í veg fyrir smit.

We at Mountaineers of Iceland are very concerned about the safety and health of our employees and our customers. It is very important for us to keep everything clean. All in all, we follow a hygiene plan that is in our safety plan and the recommendation of the Medical Director of Health regarding hygiene.
As a result, we have taken these measures for Covid-19 and other comparable infectious diseases:

- Before settling into our vehicles, everyone needs to disinfect their hands. Also before coming to our local offices at Langjökull to dress in appropriate clothing.
- Customers are all given a clean buff (headscarf) to prevent helmet contact.
- We try our best to ensure that it is 2 meters between customers. We also ask our clients to respect the 2-meter rule.

All contact surfaces are cleaned several times a day and also the overalls and helmets are sprayed with detergent after use with a substance called Virkon. It is an antiseptic and kills any germs it comes into contact with. The scarves and gloves are then cleaned at the end of the day and used only once a day to prevent infection.
