Description

Imagine yourself driving a snowmobile on Langjökull, Iceland’s second largest glacier and then entering inside to see the largest man-made ice tunnel in the world!

Get ready to drive yourself up to the ice tunnels located 1260 meters above sea level to enjoy the amazing view just below the clouds.
