Meet us at Gullfoss for a snowmobile tour on the second largest ice cap in Iceland Langjökull. Because of Covid 19 we had to make some changes to the tour and from June to October 2020 all departures will be from our base Geldingafell Camp.

Description

Join our super truck transfer from Gullfoss for the snowmobile ride of a lifetime!
This is a great choice for those who have their own transportation and want to top off the Golden Circle with something 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 unique surroundings.
We offer three daily departures from Gullfoss Café where you can park your car and grab some lunch. Driving in our super truck through the rugged, Mars-like landscape of Iceland, is an adventure of its own so please make sure to enjoy the ride. The view out of the window: a vast countryside and mountain ranges… indeed, a rare sight for many travelers.
Once we arrive at our glacier hut, you will receive the appropriate snowmobile gear. Our friendly and fun-loving guides will give you instructions on how to operate the snowmobiles and go over the safety procedures before you ride off into the wondrous winter wonderland.

Itinerary

Self-drive

We offer snowmobile tours for individuals and groups from our base camps on 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.

From Gullfoss Café*

We offer daily departures from Gullfoss Café where you can park your car and grab some lunch. Our monster truck will then take you up to Langjökull glacier. Driving through Iceland, a relatively new land compared to most of the world’s terrain is quite an adventure. Looking out the window, at the sparsely settled countryside with a few signs of commercial exploits is a rare sight for many visitors.

Once you arrive at our glacier hut, 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.

Relaxed sightseeing snowmobile ride

This tour is often a very relaxed ride on the glacier in a group. If you are seeking more of a thrill and want to go fast, you can check out our “Glacier Rush” tour – the same pickup location, same hours, totally different snowmobiles and faster pace.

* Due to the covid 19 pandemic we are unable to pick you up at Gullfoss please meet us at our base Geldingafell Camp (from June to October 2020)

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.

Gestir/viðskiptavinir mega ekki koma í skála hjá okkur né skipulagðar ferðir ef þeir eru í sóttkví eða heimkomusmitgát. Eru í einangrun (einnig meðan beðið er niðurstöðu sýnatöku). Hafa verið í einangrun vegna COVID-19 smits og ekki eru liðnir 14 dagar frá útskrift. Eru með einkenni (Kvef, hósta, hita, höfuðverk, beinverki þreytu, kviðverki, niðurgang o.fl)

Enska

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.

Visitors are not allowed in our mountain huts or on our organized tours if they are in quarantine or taking special precautions after border screening. Are in isolation (also while waiting for results). Have undergone quarantine for COVID-19 with less than 14 days from discharge. Have flue like symptoms (colds, cough, fever, head ace, bone ace, fatigue, abdominal pain, diarrhea etc).
