Overview
Embark upon a true adventure on this ice cave and snowmobile tour from Reykjavik. Get insights from the onboard audio system and receive instruction and all necessary equipment from your guide before zipping across the west side of Langjökull glacier. Go inside the glacier and visit the man-made ice cave while learning how it was made.
Highlights
  • Explore an ice cave and ride a snowmobile at Langjökull glacier
  • Onboard audio guide provides insights into geology and history
  • All necessary equipment provided
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off in Reykjavik included for convenience
What to Expect
Begin your day with a morning pickup from your Reykjavik hotel. Board the tour bus and listen to the audio commentary as you journey toward Húsafell in Borgarfjörour. Upon arrival at Jaki, listen to a safety briefing and then pull on your provided thermal suit and get kitted out in safety equipment. After following the operational instructions—and feeling confident you are ready to go—begin your snowmobile adventure. Zip across the west side of Langjökull, Iceland's second-largest glacier, which is surrounded by fields of snow and ice. Go into the man-made ice cave within the glacier and marvel at the pristine blue ice while your guide explains how geophysicists and engineers carved the chambers. Afterward, your tour concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel.

I was apprehensive about this tour in the beginning and only agreed to it because my husband wanted to ride on a snowmobile on top of a glacier. All I can say is that this might be one of the coolest things I've ever done. The snowmobiling in combination with the tour of the

Hi bettertogether0428 We thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied with the tour. Our goal is to provide an unforgettable experience for our customers and therefore we value every constructive comment that we receive. The snowmobile portion of the Into and Above the glacier tour is approx. 30 minutes, as advertised, as we customers snowmobile to the ice cave, instead of an ice truck. We do offer other snowmobile tours that are longer, that are perhaps more to your fittings. Hopefully you will keep us in mind upon your next visit to Iceland. All the best, The Reykjavik Sightseeing team
