My wife and I went on a snowmobile tour with Glacier Journey planned as a specific thing to do on our 11 day Iceland trip. I’ve previously ridden a snowmobile and off-road motor cycles but my wife is an absolute beginner. While it was certainly good fun we were also safety drilled, kitted out and supervised so there should be no undue worries. Laufey and Kari were our guides on the day which started with a ride to the glacier & snowmobiles in one of the famed Icelandic (not so small) minibuses - a sightseeing experience in itself that didn’t need a crash helmet! From then on it just got better - we were shown the straightforward controls and given safety advice before setting out solo and it was then a simple go control and a brake. The snowmobiles can tootle along or can be given their head within the constraints of safety and respect for the glacier. My wife mastered her snowmobile and did the tootling and I could give mine a drop back and then squirt staying to the tracks of our leader, Laufey. Two of our group were from Saudi and had not experienced such snow conditions but coped fine and another couple were on their honeymoon. At rest breaks we were informed of the creation process for crevasses, the changes between the seasons and the effects on the snow (not just melting away) and all the questions our group had were addressed. All in all a brilliant, interesting, scenic fun trip - thank you Glacier Journey. The snow is ‘better’ in May & June so perhaps it could be calling us both back for an all-day experience ………..

We went snowmobiling on the glacier with this group and hand a fantastic time. The guides are knowledgeable and well versed in the area. The best part is their love and respect for the glacier shows.

I booked a super jeep glacier tour with Glacier Journey for my family members visiting from India. The guide Kári provided them a memorable experience. He was friendly and engaging from the get-go and immediately made them feel comfortable. The tour lasts over 3 hours and involves a drive up mountainous terrain to the top of the glacial tongue Skálafellsjökull. I have no hesitation in recommending Glacier Journey.

Fast paced with a hiking towards the top. The drive to the starting point itself is great view (if no fog) or adventurous (if fog). I was much slower than the rest of the group but the guide very professionally let the rest of the group had fun but still waited for me to make sure I am ok by letting the rest of the group did quick joy ride when I caught up. Like this.
