What To Expect
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 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.
