Snowmobile Tour on Langjokull Glacier | Departure From Gullfoss Waterfall

Those who are not in possession of a full international driver's license can still ride the snowmobile as a passenger.
It's easy to feel small on the absolute, sheer mass that is Langjökull glacier.
Snowmobiling requires a little courage, a thirst for speed and a real willingness to have fun!
The glacier calls out to the adventurous, demanding speed, thrill and excitement!
When snowmobiling on Langjökull glacier, you will be wearing bright, colourful overalls as a means of staying visible.
Underneath the open sky, nothing can feel more freeing than snowmobiling on Langjökull glacier.

Add an exciting twist to a visit to Gullfoss, by combining it with a snowmobiling excursion on Langjökull glacier. This trip is perfect for those eager to spice up a day of sightseeing with a dose of adventure.

This tour begins from Gullfoss waterfall, one of the three points of the famous Golden Circle sightseeing route, and one of Iceland’s most iconic attractions. In the upper car park, you will meet your guide and group, board a super-jeep, and be whisked off to Langjökull glacier.

This is a beautiful drive, taken in the shadows of dramatic snowy peaks, over a rough terrain that most vehicles cannot traverse. Once you arrive at the snowmobiling base camp, you will be fitted with all your gear and receive a quick safety briefing, before mounting your vehicle and starting your adventure.

Iceland is one of the very few places in the world where you can snowmobile on a glacier throughout the year. The chance to even see an ice-cap like this is rare; but to be able to admire it from its surface, and rocket across it, is a truly unique experience.

The views of the ancient ice and surrounding landscapes are otherworldly; in clear weather, you will be able to see parts of the Icelandic Highlands, as well as other distant glaciers. This tour, therefore, is as mesmerising as it is exhilarating.

You will have a full hour to make the most of this experience, by far enough time to get used to your vehicle and truly appreciate this incredible opportunity. Once your adventure is complete, you will return to base camp, hop back into the super-jeep, and shoot back to Gullfoss waterfall.

Hit the ice at full speed on this thrilling tour you won’t ever forget. Book now for an unforgettable adventure. Check availability by choosing a date.
