Snowmobile & natural ice cave
From Gullfoss waterfall we drive in super jeeps into the highlands to the snowmobile base where we provide the gear needed, helmet, winter overall and gloves, to make sure you are safe and warm on the snowmobile activity.
Before we hit the throttle a certified snowmobile guide will teach you all the basic and show you have to safely before we head out for an hour snowmobile adventure. During the snowmobile ride to a natural ice cave and spend about 15 minutes exploring all that the caves has to offer.
The glacier is roughly parallel to the direction of the country’s active volcanic zone: north-east to south-west. Under Langjökull there are two or more volcanic systems. The area of the glacier includes some mountains, e.g. Mt. Skriðufell and Jarlhettur (“The earl’s hat”) on the east side of Langjökull, a palagonitic mountain range, which originated in a fissure vent under a glacier during Ice Age. On a clear day we can even see Eiríksjökull glacier, the dome-shaped Hofsjökull glacier and Kerlingafjöll Mountain range rest in the distance.
