If you’re an experienced sledder and want to test your ability while exploring new terrain, let us take you where we ride on our days off.
We’ll show you how to play safely in the mountain terrain while you explore some amazing sledding areas. This is not a follow-the-leader type trip; we’ll take you on an adventure! Each day your experienced guide will take you out for an advanced snowmobiling expedition.
Depending on weather and ground conditions, our guide will decide where it’s best to go each day. By doing this, we can offer you the best day possible of snowmobiling adventure. You’re guaranteed to find the best snow and least crowded trails!
All our guides are fully trained in First Aid and Avalanche Terrain and Rescue.
Groups are kept small, 5 sleds per guide so the trip moves right along.

Day 1: Reykjavík – Landmannalaugar

We depart from Reykjavík in the morning and head to Landmannalaugar area, having a lovely drive in Iceland's beautiful landscape.

When up on the highlands your expert snowmobile guide gives a short briefing on how to safely operate the snowmobiles. We then go for a few hours of awesome riding!

We then reach our mountain hut in the Landmannalaugar area, Hrafntinnusker. There your guide cooks a traditional mountain BBQ and tells you fun stories. 

After a lovely night we rest for a big snowmobiling day tomorrow. But first we'll look out for some flickering Northern Lights!


Day 2: Landmannalaugar area – Reykjavík

Now the sun has come up and our day begins. After breakfast your expert snowmobile guide lays out the plan for the day. 

Then after a great day of snowmobiling we head on towards our pick up vehicle, which will drive us to Reykjavík.

We expect to be back in Reykjavík in the evening.


If your accommodation is not in Reykjavík we can arrange pick up/drop off from/to other places. Note that pick up/drop off from/to other places might be charged for if the distance is further than Reykjavík. 
Please contact us for more information. 

Our guides are locals with years of experience. They posses deep knowledge of the highlands and provide you with enlightening entertainment along the way.

At the brand new "state-of-the-art" Lava Centre you will learn about the birth and growth of Iceland as one of the world’s largest volcanic islands. It has risen during millions of years from the submarine North Atlantic Ridge, through countless volcanic eruptions. They occur as a large mantle plume locally adds molten rock to the magma up-flow beneath the rifting segments that line this ridge. The spreading along the ridge results in the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates moving apart 20 kilometres every million years.

At the Lave Centre, there are several exhibitions to broad your knowledge about volcanoes and earthquakes. In the Trembling Earth Section, you will learn how diverging tectonic plate movements and rising magma cause frequent earthquakes. Also, you will experience a simulated earthquake. In front of the Fiery Heart of Iceland, you will learn how the normal up-flow of magma at the diverging plate boundaries interacts with a mantle plume (hot spot) beneath Iceland, pin-pointed in the central highlands. Once the gaseous molten rock in the earth’s crust and mantle known as magma is expelled during a volcanic eruption, it is termed lava and tephra (airborne material). You will learn about volcanic material and rocks in the Magma Learning Centre. There are 30 volcanic systems in Iceland containing many types of volcanoes, which have a strong impact on nature and the rapidly developing landscapes. In the Magma Learning Centre, you will gain insight into many volcanic structures. Tephra forms when magma encounters water or ice or if the gaseous magma is very viscous. The magma splinters into pieces of various sizes that may spread over large areas. In the Local Volcano Section or gazing from the viewing deck, you have a panoramic view of four large and active but dormant volcanoes, plus a group of volcanic islands. All are of a different type and nature, and two of them are among the most active and productive volcanoes in Iceland.
