Go snowmobiling on a glacier, then explore the Ice Cave!

We set off from Reykjavík towards Húsafell in Borgarfjörður. Step on board our all new bus fleet, equipped with computer tablets in each seat. On the tablets you can use our 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 happy 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, on the west side of the Glacier. After putting on the necessary clothing and getting 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 literally walk down into a 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.

Until very recently what lies beneath the surface of Langjökull was a mystery. But sometimes bold ideas do become a reality. This seemingly impossible feat 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 to civilisation, or to the small village of Húsafell. After the day´s amazing adventures you can soak in the thermal swimming pool or relax in the hot tub. Truly a day to remember!

Tour Highlights

Barnafossar

Barnafossar is a waterfall in Western Iceland, falling into Hvítá River in Borgarfjörður. Barnafossar burst out of Hallmundarhraun, a massive lava plain. Once there was a natural bridge over the waterfall. Two children from a nearby farm died crossing the river. Later, the mother had the bridge destroyed.

Húsafell

Húsafell is a farm and church estate. It is the innermost farm in Borgarfjörður, not far from Reykholt. Húsafell is a hub of various type of tourist visiting, with a swimming pool, golf course, a multitude of lakes. Húsafell is a unique natural gem in a magnificent landscape and an active birdlife.

Ice Cave of Langjökull

Into the Glacier offers various tours to Iceland‘s most significant new attraction, the man made ice cave. Inside the glacier, you will hear interesting information on the glacier, glacial exploration and research, and global warming. The walls inside the cave are led lighted.

Hraunfossar

Hraunfossar are several waterfalls in Borgarfjörður, western Iceland. They flow out of Hallmundarhraun, a lava field which flowed from a eruption from one of the volcanoes resting underneath Langjökull. The waterfalls stream into Hvítá. Just up stream there is the waterfall Barnafossar.

Langjökull

Langjökull Glacier is the second biggest glacier in Iceland. Langjökull is the home of the unique glacier cave and a paradise for snowmobile and super-jeep lovers. Its volume is 195 km³ and the ice is up to 580 m (1,900 ft) thick. The highest point of the ice cap is about 1,450 m (4,760 ft) above sea level.

Lava Fields

Lava fields, also known as lava plains or lava beds. are large and, barring any encroaching moss growth, barren expanses of ragged basalt lava flows whose molten march was long since halted by the forces of a flat ground. These fields often go on for miles, but geologists prefer to measure them in cubic kilometers.

"“These guys raise the bar in tourism services”"

A phenomenal tour group, tip top services! Being in the hospitality industry, one is always inclined to observe the "little extras that go a long way", the small details that set a company apart from the rest. Reykjavik Sightseeing went above and beyond my expectations. They run a fleet of exceptionally new, modern and comfortable buses which make longer tour travel an absolute dream.

"“Wow just wow”"

Went on our aurora tour our first night in Iceland. Got picked up on time from our hotel. What a night !!! Our tour guide was fantastic. Informative patient and enthusiastic for what he was doing. The buses all had tablets in the seat pocket but take your own earphones to listen in your own language. What a display !!!!!!! Best they had seen in a long time. The guide had binoculars telescopes and endless enthusiasm. Definately use them again 10/10.
