High speed snowmobile ride
Exploration of the Langjökull glacier.
As mentioned your destination, the Langjökull glacier, is the second largest glacier in Iceland. Its name translates to “The long glacier” and while it does not directly feed many rivers, as other glaciers do, it is believed that a series of underground streams lead from the glacier. These streams are reported as being the origin point for a fair number of lakes and hot springs in the surrounding area.
Langjökull is about 1400 meters above sea level and expands over an area of 953km2. To be able to enjoy a snowmobile tour all year round this would be the place to do it. We start the tour by picking you up in Reykjavik at your accommodation or at one of the bus stops close to your hotel. We continue to the area of Gullfoss about a 2 hour drive from Reykjavik we will do a quick stop there if needed, then we continue to our base camp where we suit up for the tour and get a lesson on how best to operate the snowmobiles on the glacier and go over some safety protocols. Then it is time to enjoy a full hour of snowmobile tour across the snowfields, the routes taken are not always the same it depends on the weather conditions each time. This tour is an excellent option for those who have already done the Golden Circle but don’t want to miss out on an unforgettable snowmobiling tour on Langjökull glacier.
