Into and Above the Glacier Iceland tour is a truly amazing adventure. First you get to snowmobile across the vast snowy wastes of an Icelandic glacier. Then you descend deep into the ice cap and explore its wonderful icy netherworld through a huge man-made glacier tunnel.
We set off from Reykjavík towards Húsafell in Borgarfjörður. Step on board Reykjavik Sightseeing´s all new bus fleet, equipped with computer tablets in each seat. On the tablets you can use our GPS Sensitive In Bus Audio Guide, available in 10 languages. So, if you wish to know interesting facts about Iceland and the places you will visit on the tour in a language that you are likely to be comfortable with, that is very possible. Onboard you will also find a USB Charger and free WiFi. Should you have any questions during the tour, you can ask the host on board who will happy assist you.
From Húsafell we will start our ascent to the Langjökull Ice Cap. We begin our snowmobiling trip from the base camp at Jaki. After putting on the necessary clothing and getting our helmets, we listen to the safety briefing from our guide. Then we´re ready to drive off across the glacier´s vast snowy wasteland and marvel at the incredible surroundings.
After snowmobiling we walk down into a magnificent man-made Ice Cave beneath the ice cap. Your expert guide will take you on this fantastic journey to the icy netherworld deep within the glacier.
After snowmobiling and exploring the Ice Cave we make our way back to civilisation, or to the small village of Húsafell before taking a scenic route back to Reykjavík. Truly a day to remember!
