Ice cave adventure
We start the day by picking you up in a super truck at Gullfoss café, located by the wonderful waterfall Gullfoss. From there we will head towards our snowmobile base which is located at the roots of Langjökull glacier, the second largest glacier in Iceland. There you will get all the equipment that you need for the snowmobile ride. After a short safety briefing and a lesson on how to operate the snowmobile we head out on a one hour exhilarating snowmobile ride. When we are halfway through the ride, we will make a stop for approximately 15 minutes to explore a unique natural ice cave on the glacier. There you will also get the opportunity to changes drivers before heading back to our base.
Langjökull, which translates as the “long glacier”, is the second largest icecap in Iceland. It is also the closest glacier to the city of reykjavik and sits at 4,000 ft (1,200 m) above sea level. The water from Langjökull eventually goes on to become the white river which feeds Gullfoss waterfall.
