Into & Above the Glacier

A truly amazing adventure, first on a snowmobile across the vast snowy wastes of an Icelandic glacier, then on foot deep into the ice cap to explore its wonderful icy netherworld through a huge man-made glacier tunnel.

We set off from Reykjavík towards Húsafell in Borgarfjörður. Step on board Reykjavik Sightseeing´s all new bus fleet, equipped with GPS Sensitive In Bus Audio Guide, available in 10 languages. So, if you wish to know interesting facts about Iceland and the places you will visit on the tour in a language that you are likely to be comfortable with, that is very possible. Onboard you will also find a USB charger and free WiFi. Should you have any questions during the tour, you can ask the host on board who will happily assist you.

From Húsafell we will start our ascent to the Langjökull Ice Cap. We begin our snowmobiling trip from the base camp at Jaki. We put on the necessary clothing and get our helmets, we listen to the safety briefing from our guide. Then we´re ready to drive off across the glacier´s vast snowy wasteland and marvel at the incredible surroundings.

After snowmobiling, we walk down into this magnificent man-made Ice Cave beneath the ice cap. Your expert guide will take you on this fantastic journey to the icy netherworld deep within the glacier.
After snowmobiling and exploring the Ice Cave we make our way back to civilization, or to the small village of Húsafell before taking a scenic route back to Reykjavík.
