We understand how frustrating it can be to snowmobile in a large group. Therefore we only go in small groups – 6 people max, with a private snowmobile departure.
You’ll be picked up from Reykjavik in a super jeep to see fascinating geology, beautiful countryside, exploding geysers, a powerful waterfall Gullfoss, and an adrenaline-pumping snowmobile ride. For your ultimate experience, you will have the same guide throughout the day, in the super jeep and snowmobiling on the glacier.
Give the typical Golden Circle a massive boost with a snowmobiling ride on an Icelandic glacier.
Your pick-up in Reykjavik starts at 8:30 and can take up to 30 minutes.
We will visit the National Park Thingvellir [Þingvellir], where Icelandic history and great geological wonders come together. In Thingvellir, a parliament was established in 930, but there is also where the two tectonic plates meet, the North American and the Eurasian plates.
Most of the water in lake Thingvallavatn comes from the glacier Langjökull [Long glacier], running along underground channels for 20-30 years, filtering the water. Therefore it is so clear, fresh… and cold.
We will go and walk among the bubbling hot springs in the Geysir area, where we will also stop for lunch.
Strokkur, a fountain geyser, is famous for its frequent eruptions every 5-7 minutes. It can sometimes erupt to 40 meters in height!
We take the mountain road Kjölur, with its fascinating glimpses of Iceland’s Highlands nature, to the snowmobile Base Camp by Langjökull glacier, the second largest glacier in Iceland.
Once there, you will be given the Snowmobiling gear needed, such as overall, mittens, goggles, and a safety helmet. Then the experienced Snowmobile guide gives you clear and precise instructions for handling these powerful machines before we shoot off up the glacier. We promise you that you don’t have to hang around and wait a long time for others as we have a private snowmobiling departure in a group that will never have more than 6 people.
Two people share the snowmobile; upgrade to a solo driver is possible while booking. The passenger doesn’t need to have a driving license.
The journey down from the glacier to one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland, Gullfoss (The golden waterfall), provides further unmissable photo opportunities on this action-packed day. Gullfoss is located in the Hvítá (White river) that runs from the glacier we have snowmobiling.
You will come back to Reykjavik around 7 PM.
Refund if canceled at least 24 hours before the event.
This unique semi-private snowmobile adventure is thrilling, extremely comfortable, and personal. Exploring the Golden Circle (Iceland’s must-see) in a Super Jeep is exciting. Perfect, luxury combo.
