About the Snowmobile Tour

The snowmobile tour is an amazing first-hand experience of the power and beauty of “Langjokull” Iceland’s second largest glacier. Get ready to drive yourself up to the ice tunnels located 1300 meters above sea level to enjoy the amazing view just below the clouds. An experienced guide will lead the tour and also teach the basics of operating a snowmobile. Anyone 16 years or older with a driver’s license can take part in this once in a lifetime adventure. Midway through the snowmobile ride our guides will take you into the icy world of Langjokull where you enjoy the amazing man-made tunnels leading to the heart of the glacier. After you have finished your journey inside you will be taken back to Húsafell for the end of your tour.

The tour will start at Húsafell center located 2 hours away from Reykjavik. GPS coordinates for Húsafell are listed here below. For driving instructions please see them here. For those that require a transfer from Reykjavik please check out our tour “Into and Above the Glacier”. The setup for this tour is two persons per snowmobile, each taking turns driving or enjoying the view from the back of the sled. You will be provided with a snowsuit, helmet, and gloves before the start of the tour but we also recommend bringing good outdoor clothing and waterproof shoes for this journey.
