What to expect
We pick you up at the meeting point and drive you to our cabin by the glacier. From there we give you all the necessary gear required to participate in the snowmobiling activity. Then we give a short introduction on how to operate the snowmobiles and safety issues you need to be aware of. Then we go out snowmobiling to the glacier for one hour. We stop for photos and to enjoy the view once during the trip. After that, we take you back to the meeting point.

Snowmobile trip
Feb 2021 • Family
The trip was breath taking and the guides were great. They have all the gear you will need for the trip but we brought some of our own with us. The transition from getting to the base camp to getting on the sleds was quick and very easy. The views on the glacier were spectacular. Highly recommend this trip to anyone coming to Iceland. I am a resident of Iceland and this was my first time on one of the glaciers.

Great ride

Great ride, great guides but a bit too much water and ice and too little snow. High focus on safety.

Thank you for your comment, glad to hear that you had a great ride with us. As we are operating on the Glacier year-round this is what happens during the warmest season in Iceland, the snow that has accumulated on the glacier over the winter starts melting leaving us with more water then we would preferer. But usually this season is very short, as we are at a high altitude with lower temperatures. Hopefully you will be able to join one of our tours during the wintertime one day. Best regards Mountaineers team.

Shorter Fully Guided Ride
Aug 2020
We spent 40 mins on the snowmobile, not an hour. The ride is fully guided, there is no time or area for you to go alone. There were 30 people on the tour when we went which slowed down the group.
The organisation was poor, our time got changed twice and the meeting point was a further 30 min drive from gullfoss into the mountains (due to Covid) on an F road, which you aren’t insured to go up unless you have hired a 4x4.
In summer you are on one track through the glacier as there is little snow, mainly ice.
I would say that on the snowmobile it was fun, but at £140pp it was too much money for what it was. Knowing what I know, I wouldn’t have spent this money on this once in a lifetime experience - save snowmobiling for winter.

Thank you for your review. We're sorry that the tour didn't live up to your expectations. Conditions on the glacier in August are very different than in the winter. A track is laid in the ice and for safety reasons, the tour is operated a little slower than in the winter. The tour is a little slower but the scenery is all the more spectacular as you're able to view the ice in the glacier all around. During the pandemic, we've been forced to adjust time schedules and we've requested some departures to meet us at our basecamp, in Geldingafell. According to the Icelandic Road Authority the road up to our basecamp is not an F-road. We do our best to make arrangements if something in the car rental agreement forbids driving on gravel roads.

Nice outing, but a bit too slow
Jul 2020 • Family
Lots of preparations and traveling to finally have about an hour on the snowmobile. With so many participants, max speed was about 30kms/h and we all had to follow in a single row. Not as exhilirating as we expected

Dear Stefan Thank you for your comment, during the winter when the glacier is covered in snow we offer more variety of tours that might fit you better. These are strange times that we are dealing with and we put safety first and foremost during this time, and the conditions each day determine how we are able to travel on the glacier. Best regards Mountaineers

Great fun at the glacier
We went (two families with teenagers / young adults) on a snowmobile trip to Langjokull with Mountaineers. Our guide, Snæbjörn, was excellent. He sent carefully trough all the safety issues and then kept a good eye on all the group during the trip and assisted those less experienced with the snowmobile. The weather conditions were fantastic. We all had so much fun. A smile on every face. 😊

Ok
Mar 2020
The scenery was wonderful as was the ice cave. The guides were friendly and the snow mobiles in good shape. But the drive there is 3 hours, only to have a ride for 40 min. It is not for beginners, the group was going quite fast so better be ready to have some skills.

Thank you for your honest review and good to hear you enjoyed the scenario and our Ice Cave. It is true, Iceland is a big country with long distances so the drives take longer times. I'm sorry that we didn't live up to your expectations.

Wonderful snow mobile experience!
This is my first time on a snow mobile but it was a really Good experience. However I must say at first we were scared because of the Weather condition! We had poor visibility, the snow and wind was falling but the guides were Good and kept a compact formation! I think this is a must see attraction!

Snowmobiling was fun but zero info
Feb 2020 • Couples
This is not exactly what I was expecting. We were picked up at the waterfall in a monster truck looking bus then travelled for an hour up to the snowmobiling base, where we changed into waterproof suits, gloves and helmet. The snowmobiling was fun we travelled out for about 20 minutes then took a 10 minute break and then circled back around to the base. It was snowing hard so visibility was extremly poor. Obviously the weather is not anybody's fault and it was kinda cool driving along in the snow. It would have been nice to be able to open it up a little but we just travelled along at a slow enough pace in a long line of snowmobiles until we took the 10 minute break in the middle of nowhere basically just taking pics of the snowmobiles as we could see nothing else then swapped drivers and headed back to the base then quick change and back on the bus back down the hill. The lack of information was disappointing we were supposed to be snowmobiling on a glacier but it wasn't mentioned once no info about where we were or anything just a quick talk on how to operate the snowmobile. It would have been nice to have some more info on where we were. A talk or short presentation before we headed out would have been great especially condidering we could see nothing outside through the snow. We could have been snowmobiling in someone's back garden for all we knew

Thank you for the review. I want to begin with apologizing for our lack of information, that's not up to our normal standards. Probably not our best day on the Glacier. The weather plays a big role in our operation and of course, it's nobody's fault when the weather is acting like this. But we can always do our best in any situation and I feel like we could have done better on this day. But thank you for your review, we will do our very best and use this to improve.
