We were picked up at Gulfoss in a huge truck (much needed due to the weather conditions) and transported to the glacier. We had a great time - good opportunities to speed up a little for whoever wanted to, but also the opportunity to hang back and go slower if needed. The

Our family of six (grown children and significant others) had a great time. We'd never snowmobiled before, but the guides were excellent and led us on a fun ride. Even in a slight falling snow, we stayed warm.

Dear Sue, Thank you for sharing your experience with this tour. We do appreciate your feedback and we hope to make improvements. We understand that short notice cancellations can cause a lot of disappointment for travelers and we would never make such changes if we could do without them. All paying customers receive a ticket with our contact details - the phone number is there as well. We always do our best to get back to everybody as soon as possible. Of course, a refund is offered in a situation like this, but we cannot control the exchange rate or foreign transaction fees applied by the bank. Please accept our sincere apologies for this frustrating and disappointing experience. We hope you get a chance to enjoy snowmobiling on a glacier sometime in the future. Best Regards, Gintare B.

Dear Valued Traveler, Thank you for taking the time to share this experience with us. We’re very sorry to hear about the situation you’re in. Kindly note we do have a very limited number of passengers per tours and therefore, we have to apply our cancelation policy when it comes to late tour modifications/cancelations. We also state to exact address on the voucher and also provide GPS coordinates for easier navigation around. Therefore, to be able to treat all of our customers with the same rules and guidelines, we are not able to reschedule travelers if they contact us less that our indicated time. Let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with. Best regards, Elze

Yeah don't use this company at all. We booked a snowmobiling adventure as the highlight of our trip to Iceland. We were told to meet at the basecamp on Lanjokull. Fine - except that there are two basecamps. So we went to the wrong one and tried to rebook (apparently it happens a

Dear Graham P, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We understand your frustration and disappointment for missing the tour. Please note that once you've booked the tour you've received a ticket with all the necessary information. We always ask our customers to read through the ticket in detail. There is a hyperlink on your ticket "snowmobile base camp at Langjökull Glacier" and if you click on it, it opens a maps link which shows the exact location on the map where you need to be for the tour. We also provide GPS coordinates and driving directions word by word, we try to make it as clear as possible, even if there are two base camps on the ticket the right one is indicated. We also inform our customers that they are responsible to arrive to the meeting point of the tour in time for the adventure. We are very sorry this situation turned out this way, but we sincerely hope you have enjoyed your time in Iceland overall. Once again, thank you for your feedback and apologies for the inconvenience. Best regards, Laura S.
