Ice Cave & Snowmobile from Gullfoss


CERTIFIED OPERATOR     Tour operator: Mountaineers of Iceland     5 hours     Travel method: Self-Drive

Gullfoss

Possibly after a great golden circle trip of your own, park your car at Gullfoss Café and you will be stunned by the massive trucks and super jeeps from Mountaineers of Iceland that await your arrival. Our driver will greet you at our meeting point sign and from there we start the journey to the glacial highlands of Iceland, driving from Gullfoss to Langjökull glacier.

The epic scenery on the way and the impassable road that our massive machinery eats through is an adventure on its own!

Once we get to the glacier we will step out of the monster truck and into our glacier hut for snowsuits and other accessories that keep you warm during the snowmobile ride.

When suited up we head to our parked snowmobile rows and the guide will go through the details of how to operate the snowmobile. No worries, it´s quite easy. After the short introduction, you select your snowmobile and once the guide signals you to go, the ride begins. A valid drivers license is required to operate a snowmobile, meaning you have to have the right to drive a car.

Riding the glacier and with good visibility, you will be emerged in the epic surroundings and lava formed rock mountains. Total whiteout is always a possibility but that is no less fun and what we truly call the moods of Mountaineers.

The ride will take you to our newly discovered ice cave that Mountaineers have built a custom entrance for ease of access all winter long!

The Brand New Ice Cave

The ice cave was discovered just before winter and was this giant opening that seemed endless. Our expert guides were in awe and already planning to maintain access since winter was just around the corner and with it a great deal of snowfall that would seal up the entrance. After building an access to the mysterious world of ice we are able to welcome travelers into a safe environment and actually, experience the unique natural beauty of the ice cap from within. The trip to the Ice Cave is an exhilarating snow-mobile tour. When we arrive at the Ice Cave we will explore every corner and detail of it, although it´s mostly round. The trip to the ice cave and the stop takes an estimated an hour and 30 minutes, give or take.

We then head back to Mountaineers Glacier Hut and hop on the monster truck to ride back through the snowy terrain on our way to Gullfoss.

This is going to be the story you tell after an incredible trip to Iceland!
