Ice Caving & Snowmobile Tour from Reykjavik

Join this tour from Reykjavík to go snowmobiling on the Langjökull glacier and visit a natural ice cave hidden below the ice cap. This is the only natural ice cave day tour departing from Reykjavík, so don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to explore the shimmering ice cave of Langjökull.

You will be picked up from Reykjavík and driven to the base camp of Langjökull glacier. After gearing up, you will hop on your snowmobile and ride across the ice plains, taking in the breathtaking views and crisp air for about half an hour, culminating with a journey into the ice cave. Below the ice ceiling, you will have plenty of time to study the unique natural phenomenon and snap some pictures to send your friends melting with envy.

Langjökull (“The Long Glacier“) is located in the midwest highlands and is the second-largest glacier in Iceland, its wild beauty framed by snowy valleys and gnarled pillars of volcanic rock. The glacier feeds the river Hvítá (‘White River’), which is home to Iceland‘s most famous waterfall, Gullfoss, and is one of Iceland‘s most popular rafting destinations.

Natural ice caves are sculpted by melting glacial water or geothermal heat and are an impermanent phenomenon, flexing with the glacial crawl and undergoing regular seasonal shifts. One must take care to consult local experts before exploring natural caves, but glacial guides have located the most enticing caves and established their accessibility to ensure you can enjoy their majestic, fleeting beauty safely.

Cross “snowmobile” and “ice cave” off your Iceland bucket list. Book this tour today to join an exciting snowmobile adventure and explore the wild serenity of an Icelandic ice cave from Reykjavík. Check availability now by choosing a date.
