An amazing experience! We booked a double snowmobile and had a great time. The guides picked us up at the Gullfoss cafe and drove us to the base camp. There we got dressed up in warm clothing and after a thorough introduction of the snowmobiles, we were ready to go. Lucky as we were, the clouds disappeared and we enjoyed clear blue skies during our tour. Halfway we stopped at an ice cave and the guides shared a lot of interesting facts and information. It was a unique experience which I would definitely recommend.

Came across these guys as a result of a previous booking facing through so wasn't sure what to expect. However had a great day with our guide Asi who took me and another lad on a tour of the golden circle, then we met up with another group to do the Snowmobiling. The snowmobiling was brilliant fun, the time just flew by and it was over too soon but really the whole day was fab! Went to all the hotspots, took loads of snaps and we were out from 9 til 7. Very enjoyable as Asi was a great laugh and took us on paths less trod. Learned a lot about Iceland and swapped tales, questions and laughs. Treat yourselves to an excellent day out.

OK, snow mobiling isn't a "city" thing, so this was an excellent chance to do something way out of the ordinary for a Californian. The entire staff was energetic and thorough. They got us suited up quickly and did an excellent briefing on how to handle the snow mobile safely. There were 10 of us, and we were zipped along at a good pace, approaching 60 km/hr, over wide expanses of snow and up to the glacier. The weather wasn't the best, foggy and rainy, but never felt like it was dangerous and there were plenty of guides accompanying our convoy. The weather cleared a bit for the second half of the ride and the views were spectacular.

I was pretty nervous about the driving as I hadn't experienced snow mobiling before and I had a teenage son as pillion to impress!
The drive up to the glacier from gullfoss car park was incredible! Bumpy is an understatement! We could not stop giggling all the way up. At the top the scenery disappeared and all around was white, adding to the mystery.(and anxiety!!)
We were provided with really cosy suits, gloves,and helmets and were given a full safety talk.
We sped across the glacier for miles and miles and experienced a natural ice cave half way, which was absolutely incredible. The staff running the experience were friendly informative and fun and we thoroughly enjoyed every second!
It was one of the best things we did in Iceland, if not THE best- I really recommend this company.

It was the first time on snowmobile for me and it was a great experience. We travel for an hour around the glacier and went to this ice cave, one of my best days in Iceland. Our guide, Asi was funny and informative and really showed us a good time. Overall, an amazing trip.
