Your adventure day starts when we pick you up at the arranged time.
Depending on your booking option, we will pick you up in Reykjavik or from Amazing Basecamp Skjól (Campground), located not so far away from the famous Gullfoss Waterfall.
If you want to be pick-up near Gullfoss, please book this option HERE.
Then we’ll head up to Langjökull Glacier, Iceland’s second largest glacier, in the Icelandic Highlands in our super truck. On a clear day, the views are incredible. You will be able to see Eiríksjökull Glacier (the highest mountain in west Iceland), Hofsjökull Glacier, and the Kerlingafjöll Mountains.
Your certified glacier guide will provide overalls, helmets and all the gear you need, give you a safety briefing, and a few straightforward snowmobile driving instructions.
You are then ready to ride – driving a snowmobile is easy but feel free to ask any questions before you roar off. Your stunning 1-hour snowmobile ride will take you across Langjökull Glacier, rising to 1450 m above sea level. Feel your excitement and adrenaline soar! Your snowmobile tour on Langjökull will feel like a magic carpet chase across the roof of majestic white land. Langjökull is known as ”The White Glacier”; glaciers are predominantly white, but Langjökull is just so incredibly white. Make the most of the journey but feel your spine tingle in anticipation as you approach the natural ice cave – you will not be disappointed.
Before winter comes, our glacier guides begin their exciting search for the new Langjökull Ice Cave. All ice caves are exceptional, but some are more special than others! The ice ceiling above you resembles a brilliant blue river; the ice is so exceptionally translucent that it seems as though pure blue-hued quartz crystal jewels surround you. The ice around this ”blue river” is white, bearing very unusual subtle gray ”zebra striping”, formed from the ash layers of various volcanic eruptions. You get about 15 minutes to explore and photograph the cave and enjoy this fantastic natural ice cave’s rare and precious crystalline blue beauty.
Outside, your trusty snowmobile is waiting, ready to skim you across Langjökull to our Snowmobile Base Camp. We drop you back to Amazing Basecamp Skjól.
