Daily itinerary

Day 1 - Reykjavík – Landmannalaugar area


Landmannalaugar Highland Snowmobiling tour


We depart in the morning and start journey to the Landmannalaugar area. When we have reached the mountains, our expert snowmobile guide will give you a snowmobile briefing, before we head out on to explore our snowmobile wonderland. We’ll show you how to play safely in the mountain terrain while you explore some amazing sledding areas.

After a few hours of riding we will reached our mountain hut in the Landmannalaugar area, Hrafntinnusker. The hut on Hrafntinnusker, Hoskuldarskali, was built in 1977 at 1027 meters above mean sea level, the house is geothermally heated the whole year round.

Our hut at Hrafntinnusker is named after Obsidian which is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock. It is produced when felsic lava extruded from a volcano cools rapidly with minimal crystal growth.

In our traditional hut our guide will cook an old-style mountain BBQ before we head off to bed and rest for our next snowmobiling day.


Day 2 - Landmannalaugar area – Reykjavík


Landmannalaugar Highland Snowmobiling tour


After a good night’s rest and a nice breakfast our expert snowmobile guide will lay out the plan for our second day in the in the Landmannalaugar area in the Highlands of Iceland. The nature resevere is called Fjallabak and was established in 1979. The Nature reserve is 47.000 hectares and is over 500 meters above sea level. The land is mountainous, with rhyolitic stratovolcanoes and complex of subglacial volcanoes and geothermal activity, covered by lavas, sands, rivers and lakes. So, no worries there is still a lot of treasures to explore in this vast mountainous area. A little fact about the area is that there was a volcanic eruption around 870 which left a thin layer of tephra all over Iceland. This layer makes possible to determine the exact dates of many archeological finds.

After a nice day of snowmobiling we will start to head on towards our pick-up vehicle, which will drive us to Reykjavík.

We expect to be back in Reykjavík in the evening.
