Tour itinerary

Pick up at Gullfoss

Your adventure starts in the evening at the Gullfoss Café car parking, where you will be picked up by one of our driver guides. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your tour departure.

Super truck transfer to the snowmobile base

Our journey continues towards the snowmobile base camp at Langjökull, Europe’s second-largest glacier. Riding in our modified super jeep on a glacier is a fun and exciting experience in itself.

Once you reach our base camp we will get you registered for your snowmobile tour and your guides will provide you with all the equipment that you need for a thrilling snowmobile ride in the darkness.

Most of our guests are first-time snowmobilers so you will receive a comprehensive safety briefing and instruction on how to drive your snowmobile safely and confidently. Snowmobiles are very easy to drive – you will learn all you need to know in a few minutes.

Hitting the trail

After some practice driving at our base area, your guide will lead you up a snowmobile trail through the ice cap for a fantastic adventure. Guided by the snowmobiles’ headlights, a whole new world opens up before us as we gaze upon the frozen landscape. With good fortune, we will see the Aurora Borealis – Northern Lights performing its ancient dance. The quiet, serene environment makes you feel as if you’re by yourself in the world in a place where the stars seem so close you’ll want to reach out and touch them.

During the ride, we will make stops to take in the view. You are welcome to bring your camera to record your snowmobile adventure. Feel free to ask your guide to take photos and videos of you and your family or friends – we are happy to oblige. You will have enough time to enjoy the view and take good pictures without haste. You will also have the opportunity to switch the seats for the return trip to the basecamp.

After taking photos and enjoying the view, you’ll hop back onto your snowmobile and shoot back down the glacier to the base camp. We will drop you off at the same location where you boarded the super truck.
