We booked this tour more for the snowmobile experience and it was a good experience overall! Keep in mind that the snowmobile tour is with quite a big group (more than 20 people) and if you’re unfortunate enough to get stuck behind slower people, it would make the experience less enjoyable. When driving you have to follow a path in a single line. You were provided with all of the gear needed for the snowmobile! Our tour guide took us to a 300 year old ice cave which was an added bonus! You’re allowed to swap drivers on the way back as well.

Fascinating tour, with a very well put together audio guide provided by Karen and a comfortable drive provided by Gregor. Came away from the tour much more informed about Iceland, the Icelandic way of life, its people, history, geology...the lot! The sights on the tour were amazing to see and experience and well worth the money. It was a shame about the cancelled snowmobile tour, but we received a partial refund so not out of pocket.

This trip was wonderful. Well planned, Tony was so helpful and friendly. It was a trip of a lifetime, the weather was superb, we got some breathtaking pictures. All of the gear you will need is provided.

Great experience, nothing felt rushed, transportation was seamless between both activities.

Excellent tour, viewed great places and the snowmobiling experience I would recommend.
