Take a ride on a monster truck and a snowmobile on your way to a newly-discovered natural ice cave, and let the professional guide show you around. The ride on the monster truck is an adventure on its own, so come and enjoy the Mountaineer lifestyle!

What to expect?

Gullfoss

Park your car at Gullfoss Café, and you will be stunned by the massive trucks and super jeeps from Mountaineers of Iceland that await your arrival. Our driver will greet you at our meeting point sign, and from there we start the journey to the glacial highlands of Iceland, driving from Gullfoss to Langjökull glacier.

The epic scenery on the way and the impassable road that our massive machinery eats through is an adventure on its own!

Once we get to the glacier, we will step out of the monster truck and into our glacier hut for snowsuits and other accessories that keep you warm during the snowmobile ride.

When suited up, we head to our fleet of snowmobiles and the guide will go over the details of how to operate them. No worries, it's quite easy. After the short introduction, you select your snowmobile, and once the guide signals you to go, the ride begins.

Riding the glacier in good visibility, you will be immersed in the epic surroundings of the lava rock mountains.

The ride will take you to a newly-discovered ice cave that the Mountaineers built a custom entrance for. Ease of access all winter long!

The Brand New Ice Cave

The ice cave was discovered just before winter. It is a giant opening that seems endless. Our expert guides were in awe, and they were already planning to maintain access, since winter was just around the corner, and with it a great deal of snowfall that would seal up the entrance. After building an access point to the mysterious world of ice, we have been able to welcome travelers into a safe environment to experience the unique natural beauty of the ice cap from within. The trip to the ice cave is an exhilarating snowmobile tour. When we arrive at the Ice Cave, we will explore every corner and detail, although it's mostly round. The trip to the ice cave and the stop takes approximately an hour and a half.

We then head back to the Mountaineers Glacier Hut, and hop back on the monster truck to ride through the snowy terrain on our way to Gullfoss.

This is going to be the story you tell after an incredible trip to Iceland!
