Possibly after a great golden circle trip of your own, park your car at Gullfoss Café, and you will be stunned by the massive trucks and super jeeps from Mountaineers of Iceland that await your arrival. Our driver will greet you at our meeting point sign, and from there, we will start the journey to the glacial highlands of Iceland, driving from Gullfoss to Langjökull glacier.
The epic scenery on the way and the impassable road that our massive machinery eats through is an adventure.
Once we get to the glacier, we will step out of the monster truck and into our glacier hut for snowsuits and other accessories that keep you warm during the snowmobile ride.
When suited up, we head to our parked snowmobile rows, and the guide will go through the details of how to operate the snowmobile. No worries, it’s pretty easy. After the short introduction, you select your snowmobile, and once the guide signals you to go, the ride begins. A valid driver’s license is required to operate a snowmobile, meaning you have to have the right to drive a car.
Riding the glacier with good visibility, you will emerge in epic surroundings and lava-formed rock mountains. Total whiteout is always possible, but that is no less fun, and we call it the moods of Mountaineers.
The ride will take you to our new Ice Cave, which gives you a good insight into how the glacier works.
Although we know how glacier looks, it’s a fantastic experience to go inside this impressive structure. The Ice we are sculpting is over 1000 years old, and you can see layers of ash from many different eruptions throughout history. The trip to the Ice Cave is also an exhilarating snowmobile tour. When we arrive at the Ice Cave, we will explore every corner and detail of it, and also our Guides will inform you about everything you want to know about the glacier.
We then head back to Mountaineers Glacier Hut and hop on the monster truck to ride back through the snowy terrain on our way to Gullfoss.
