Tour description

If you like adventure, exploring and having fun then this is the tour for you. The tour starts right here in central Reykjavik where you can be picked up in a specialised Super-Jeep. The pickup locations are widespread around the central area so only a few minutes walk from most hotels in Reykjavik.

From there you start towards the glacier, around a 90 minute drive to the North-East. The drive is its own experience with the beautiful landscape surrounding you from the get go. You drive past mountains, lakes and even another glacier, Þórisjökull before finally reaching the second largest glacier in Iceland, Langjökull.

When you arrive at the base-camp you will get suited up for your exhilarating tour. All you need will be available at the base camp, all necessary safety and snowmobile equipment, including snowmobile suit, gloves, balaclava and helmet.

A guide will then show you the ropes, get you all set for the trip before safely mounting the snowmobiles before your one-hour excursion starts for real! It really is a once in a lifetime tour that no one should miss.

Snowmobiling across the glacier!

Are you looking for an adventure, something other than looking at the classic sights? Then this is a perfect tour. We're not making this complicated, not a bundle tour like some of the other snowmobiling tours we offer, but a pure SNOWMOBILE ADVENTURE!

You get picked up right from central Reykjavik, a few minute walk from most hotels in Reykjavik. The driver will take you in a Super-Jeep up to the Base Camp at Skjól where you can start your unforgettable experience.

Experience of a lifetime

We treated ourselves to a private tour, and we were lucky to get perfect weather (between 2 storms). Had an amazing time with a great guide (Arne), went right across the glacier, in perfect sunshine, blue skies and no wind. Super friendly and helpful, with lots of information about Iceland, culture, lifestyle and weather ! Saw all the sights, with all the time that we wanted. Highly recommended, both the company and Arne as a guide ! And the cauliflower soup was delicious !

Out of this world

The snowmobile adventure on Langjokull Glacier was well worth the money. Our super jeep driver, Gunnar, was incredible, he made sure we got the trip we paid for despite the weather not being the best. He went out of his way to ensure we had a memorable experience he customized our itinerary on the fly to show the beauty of the country. We can not say enough good things about Gunnar he is a wealth of knowledge and has a passion for his job. We recommend bringing good rain gear and hiking boots. We had two days of rain but we were still able to enjoy ourselves due to the fact we had good clothing and footwear. The weather can not be controlled by your guide but in our case Gunnar made a point to give us the best trip despite the weather. We would take another adventure with Amazing tours and Gunnar in a heartbeat. Our adventure was a good value for the price. Trust me you will not be disappointed.
