If you have a rental car, you can meet up with the super trucks at Gullfoss café, where they will transport you to the glacier.
If you don’t have a rental car, you can also opt for this tour out of Reykjavik.
No matter where you are picked up, the adventure will begin the moment you meet up with your expert guide!
You will be driven along highland road Kjolur, up towards the snowmobile base. There, your snowmobile guide will provide you with overalls, helmet and all the gear necessary for a safe and enjoyable snowmobile tour. You will need to sign a confirmation of liability, and be given a safety brief before the snowmobile tour starts – now you are ready to ride!
The thrilling 1-hour snowmobile tour will take you across stunning glacier landscapes, on the second-largest glacier in Iceland. Riding across the vast, white snow field will feel like you are in another world! Some days, you will barely be able to see the difference between the white ice cap, and the white sky above you, and it feels like you are floating in the air.
Once you reach the ice cave, you will be stunned by the stark contrast between all the white outside and all the lovely hues of gray, blue, black and white inside the cave. The ice cave displays a vast array of glacier-colors and the ice is so translucent, you feel like you can see through the other side of the glacier. You can see the various layers of ash, from past volcanic eruptions, giving the ice a zebra-like look, adding to all the beauty. You get about 15 minutes to explore, enjoy and photograph the cave, before it is time to return to base.
After this amazing tour, you will be dropped off at the same place we picked you up.
