About the tour

We begin this journey in the late afternoon, starting from Reykjavik and head towards the breathtaking glacier, Langjökull. After getting dressed in the proper clothing and equipment, we will drive to the base camp where your 2 hour snowmobile journey begins.

After a safety briefing and short training, you’re ready to go. It’s an exhilarating ride as we make our way along the top of the glacier, riding over glacial rifts and bumps.

On a clear winters night, if the sky is clear, you will hopefully see the wonderful performance of Northern Lights as you drive around on this glacier. Be sure to take it all in, it’s truly unforgettable.

The aim of this evening tour is to spot the Aurora Borealis dancing across the sky so keep an eye out and remember your camera for that memorable shot.

After the ride, there will be light refreshments before heading back to Reykjavik.

To help you get the most out of your magical lights experience, this tour also includes entrance to the Aurora Reykjavik exhibition in the old harbour area of downtown Reykjavik. The exhibition is Iceland’s first Northern Lights centre and has educational and recreational displays on offer.
