Snowmobiling Tour on Langjokull Glacier from Gullfoss Waterfall
Race across ancient ice and explore pristine places unreachable on foot with this exhilarating snowmobiling tour on top of Langjökull Glacier. This is the perfect option for thrill-seekers looking to add an icy adventure to their Golden Circle sightseeing trip.
You’ll meet your guide at Gullfoss Waterfall, one of the three sites which make up Iceland’s most popular sightseeing route, the Golden Circle. Here, you’ll board a massive monster truck which is fully equipped to handle the rocky and rough road up Langjökull Glacier.
The route to the glacier is an adventure in itself. First, you’ll travel to the bare and barren Highlands of Iceland, seeing little to no signs of human interference. After a while, the snowy landscapes of Langjökull, Iceland’s second-largest glacier, will take over.
At the base camp, your guide will provide you with all safety gear required for this tour. This includes a helmet, warm overalls, gloves, baklava, and overshoes. You will then mount your snowmobile. Don’t worry if you’ve never driven one before; your guide will show you how to operate the vehicle before you head out to the glacial wilderness.
To operate a snowmobile, you must be at least 17 years old and hold a valid driving licence. However, children as young as six years old are allowed to ride as passengers, making this a perfect experience for the whole family.
Once on top of your snowmobile, you’ll follow your guide on an icy path, with plenty of room to speed up to feel your heart race and the adrenaline surge through your veins. You can also take it slow and enjoy the spectacular scenery that surrounds you. After a while, you’ll stop to take in the breathtaking views on top of the glacier. Here, you’ll also get the perfect opportunity to snap a few photos of you on your snowmobile.
When it is time to head back, you’ll mount your snowmobile again and race towards the base camp. You will then board the monster truck again and make your way back to Gullfoss Cafe. You are then free to continue exploring the Golden Circle or any one of Iceland’s spectacular attractions found nearby.
