Snowmobiling on Langjökull Glacier with Pickup from Gullfoss Waterfall

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Your snowmobile adventure begins with pickup from Gullfoss Café, located beside the natural wonder of Gullfoss Waterfall. Board a climate-controlled vehicle here and drive to Europe’s second largest glacier.

    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.
