The Snowmobile Tour is something else! You and a partner will share snowmobile and drive yourselves up to the ice tunnels on Langjokull glacier. An English speaking very experienced guide will lead the way and teach the basics in snowmobile riding. Anyone 16 years and older with a drivers licence can take part in this once in a life time adventure.
There are two persons per snowmobile, taking turns driving and relaxing at the back. Driving up to the ice tunnels at 1300m above sea level is an amazing experience with spectacular views over the glacier and the Icelandic highlands. After the snowmobile fun the guide takes you Into The Glacier where you enjoy this amazing man-made tunnels inside the glacier. For a whole hour you will enjoy the beauty and force of mother nature first hand inside the glacier. After the Into The Glacier experience you drive the snowmobile back to base camp, about 2,5 hours later.
