Know More about this tour

After pickup at your Reykjavik hotel, your day trip begins as you head out of the city toward Hsafell in Borgarfjrur. From there, start your ascent to the ice cap of Langjkull, the second-largest in Iceland.

Your 1-hour snowmobiling experience starts at the base at Jaki, situated on the west side of the glacier. Get ready by putting on the provided thermal suits with all of the necessary safety equipment, and listen to important instructions about how to operate the snowmobile from your guide. Then take off on the ice, following your guide across this enormous glacier as you soak up the remarkable surroundings.

Next, go down into the glacier itself on a tour to the man-made ice cave situated here. Your guide takes you on a journey deep within the glacier, where you have a chance to see thestunning blue ice and the chambers that have been carved out of it. Until very recently, what lies beneath the surface of Langjkull was a mystery, but sometimesbold ideas can come to life, and the realization of this man-made ice cave was onlypossiblewith help from top engineers and renowned geophysicists. Inside the glacier, where the temperature is usually around 32 Fahrenheit (0 C), you can see from the layers of ice how the glacier was formed.

After this, make your way back to civilization as you return to the small town of Hsafell. Following a day spent on the ice, you can chose between soak in the warming thermal swimming pool or see the famous waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafoss beforeheading back to Reykjavik.
