Full description
Jump aboard the monster truck at Gullfoss Café and begin the tour by driving into the barren landscape heading for the Langjökull glacier area. You will arrive at a glacier hut, where you will be geared up for the highlight of the tour, snowmobiling in the darkness.

Guided by snowmobile headlights, a whole new world opens up before you as you gaze upon the frozen landscape. Iceland is famed for the natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights, which can often be seen dancing in the Icelandic sky. With good fortune, you will see the Aurora Borealis performing its ancient dance.

The quiet serene environment makes you feel as if you are by yourself in the world and in a place where the stars seem so close you will want to reach out and touch them. After the snowmobile tour, head back to Gullfoss after a truly one of a kind experience.
