Enjoy the golden glow of the Midnight Sun Snowmobile Tour on Europe’s second-largest glacier from the Gullfoss area in South Iceland.

Description

North of the Polar Circle a natural phenomenon called the Midnight Sun occurs. From May and through August the skies radiate with shades of pink and gold through the night. The sun only sets for a few magical moments, casting an illuminating glow during dusk.
The mystical light creates an ambiance fitting Iceland‘s myths and legends. There’s something strangely exotic about a place so close to the pole that the sun refuses to set for a chunk of the year.

Far away from the city lights, we will be driving across the glistening snowfields, breathing in the Arctic air while being embraced by the Midnight Sun. The vast glacier reflects these subtle sunbeams, setting the stage for memories you will cherish forever.

  • Pick-up and drop-off at the Gullfoss upper-parking lot
  • Warm overalls and appropriate equipment.
  • Monster truck transfer to the glacier hut
  • One hour snowmobile tour
  • Our snowmobiles are double-riders and children are welcome to ride as passengers as long as they have reached the age of six. A valid driver‘s license is needed to operate a snowmobile.
  • This tour starts at the upper parking lot in the Gullfoss area and travelers need to get there either by bus or if you have a rental car. A direct drive from Reykjavík to there takes about 2 hours.
  • Visibility is dependent on the weather and clouds
  • The ride on the monster truck is an adventure of its own, so enjoy the moods of Mountaineers.

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.
