Don't worry about bringing any gear, we give you a snowmobile suit, balaclava, helmet, and gloves. Let your tour guides know if you have any questions or concerns before we take off so they can ensure a positive experience.
Snowmobile across Langjökull Glacier
Equipped and oriented, it’s time to motor off across the glittering Langjökull Glacier! Langjökull, which translates to 'Long Glacier,' stretches 925 km² (357.144 mi²) with the highest peak, Baldjökull, standing at 1405 m (4609.58 ft). Rip and roar into the vast unknown on your snowmobile with an action-packed ride on expansive frozen tundra. The glacier includes a smattering of snow-frosted mountains, such as Jarlhettur ("the earl's hat"), along the way that adds to the dreamy scenery.
Step into the Langjökull Ice Cave
A guided tour of the Langjökull Ice Cave is one of the featured spectacles of this excursion. Step into the dazzling, blue-hued cave and marvel at the natural beauty of one of the most striking glacier caves in Iceland. Learn about how the caves are formed as you make your way deep into the heart of the glacier. You’ll get about 15 minutes to explore and photograph this crystal ice cave.
Waiting outside the caves, your snowmobiles will take you back to base camp. On the way, you’ll get a chance to see both the Eiríksjökull and Hofsjökull Glaciers. Don’t miss out the chance to explore all that Langjökull Glacier has to offer while taking in the spectacular views along the Golden Circle.
