Into and Above the Glacier
Ride a snowmobile to the Ice cave
We set off from Reykjavik towards Icelandic highlands above Husafell in West Iceland in the early morning for a glacier experience like no other. This tour includes a snowmobile ride up the vast snowy terrain of the second largest glacier in Iceland followed by a walk through the magnificent man-made ice cave.
From the glacier base camp at Jaki we start our tour of the Langjokull Glacier Ice Cap. We begin with putting on the necessary clothing and getting our helmets fitted, we then listen to the safety briefing from our guide before we head out on our snowmobile tour. Then we´re ready to drive off across the glacier´s vast snowy wonderland and marvel at the incredible surroundings. We will actually drive our snowmobiles to the famous ice cave!
After riding the snowmobiles up the glacier we walk down into the glacier, Your expert guide will take you on this fantastic journey to the icy netherworld deep within the glacier.
Until very recently what lies beneath the surface of Langjokull was a mystery. But sometimes bold ideas become a reality and this seemingly impossible feat of creating a 500 meter long ice cave was made possible through the combined efforts of the country´s top engineers and geo-physicists. Inside the glacier the temperature is usually around zero degrees Celsius or 32 Fahrenheit.
After snowmobiling and exploring the Ice Cave we make our way back down to civilization, or to the small village of Husafell.
