Snowmobiling on Langjökull Glacier with Pickup from Gullfoss Waterfall

Experience the exhilaration of riding a snowmobile over the frozen landscapes of the Langjökull glacier, one of Europe’s largest, on this 4-hour tour from Gullfoss Waterfall. Following a brief introduction to driving a snowmobile, you’ll glide over the surface of the Langjökull glacier and absorb views of volcanic craters and dramatic mountain ranges. Receive personalized attention from your guide on this small-group tour, limited to six participants. All drivers must hold a valid driving license. 

What to Expect

Your snowmobile adventure begins with pickup from Gullfoss Café, located beside the natural wonder of Gullfoss Waterfall. Board a climate-controlled vehicle here and, following a 1-hour drive, you’ll arrive at Europe’s second-largest glacier.

Each snowmobile can accommodate one driver — who must hold a valid driver’s license — so decide who’ll be taking the wheel during your safety briefing on arrival at the Langjökull glacier.

Then, once you feel suitably prepared, set off on a 1-hour ride past the frozen crater lakes and icy landscapes of the glacier. On a clear day, you’ll be able to see Eiriksjökull glacier, Hofsjökull glacier, and the Kerlingafjöll mountain range in the distance.

Following your adventure, return to base camp to change and then relax during the return ride to Gullfoss Café, where your tour concludes.

We booked this tour last minute, and it definitely exceeded our (already high) expectations! The pickup was smooth and punctual and the guide (Ron) was very friendly and knowledgeable. The first part is a drive in a pretty impressive super jeep up to the basecamp,...More

Pure fun and amazement!

We went on an afternoon tour and happened to have great weather - slightly windy, but sunny. Everything started with an adrenaline-filled ride with a big-wheel van. The team was very welcoming and quick to gear us up for the ride. During the snowmobile ride,...More

Awesome Arctic Adventure

Outstanding company with top notch customer service. Our highly anticipated snowmobile adventure seemed doomed due to unforseen health concerns with one member of our group. The staff at the base camp worked tirelessly to get us back on track. We were a family of four,...More
