If you’re looking to explore the majestic Icelandic glaciers in the funnest, most unique way possible. Then we believe that doing an awesome snowmobile tour on the truly special, Langjökull glacier is an absolute MUST-DO!
The Guides were brilliant. It is about a 1.5-2 hour drive from Reykjavik to their base camp. We were assisted into our Snowsuits, balaclavas, helmets & snow boots . Our safety was always their top priority & making sure it was fun for us. The Guides gave us information about what we would see on the Glacier, they made sure we were comfortable handling the Snowmobiles & making sure everyone had their photos taken. There was Hot chocolate & biscuits waiting for us back at base camp once we returned!!! Wonderful. My Sisters & I had a fabulous time
This was an extraordinary adventure. It started out well when our driver, Hans, was friendly, knowledgeable and super accommodating and then the day got better and better! The team were experts at building our expectations step by step - the switch from a van to a super truck, the moment we headed off-road into the highlands, kitting out into our very flattering (!) snowsuits, the safety briefing, the drive up to the snowmobiles and finally the instructions and then whoosh... we were off. There really isn't an adjective good enough to describe speeding across a glacier on a snowmobile. Hans challenged us to try without smiling - impossible! We were warm, it felt safe but exhilarating and more fun than I can describe... I should add that we had perfect weather and conditions and that certainly added to the joy.
I would add this to a must do list when in Iceland. I booked several tours and all were great, they had great communication, prompt pickups, wifi on all vehicles and great staff overall. The snowmobile experience included a visit to a small ice cave which was pretty unique. The guides assist you in an manner necessary and make sure all age groups are cared for. It’s a good distance from Reykjavík so be prepared with snacks and such. I would recommend Wake Up Reykjavik for any of your planned excursions, overall had a great experience with all the tours I booked through them!
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, there is, safety is always our number one priority and after looking closely into this the age limit was set to 8 years, of course in company with a guardian.
First and foremost warm clothing. Upper body: Thermal shirt and a fleece or a thick sweater over. Lower body: Warm pants. If you get easily cold, also thermals. Shoes: It’s best to wear boots as it’s pretty cold on the glacier and they can get wet. NOTE: You need to bring a lunch or some snacks. Lunch is not included in the tour.
Yes, we have toilets at the base camp where the tour starts that you are more than welcome to use before and after. Unfortunately we cannot offer any bathroom breaks during the tour itself.
Yes, of course! The tour operates all year round. The plus side to being a cold country is that our glaciers are here all year around and we can go snowmobiling in every season.
Of course! You do not need previous snowmobile driving experience. Your guide will provide easy to follow operating instructions. You just need a valid Driving License if you intend to drive - and you'll be all set for the fun!
