Package Itinerary

Day 1: Reykjavík – Landmannalaugar area

We depart from Reykjavík in the morning and start heading to the Landmannalaugar area. When we have reached the mountains, our expert snowmobile guide will give you a snowmobile briefing, before we head out on to explore our winter wonderland. We’ll show you how to play safely in the mountain terrain while you explore some amazing sledding areas.
After a few hours of riding we will reached our mountain hut in the Landmannalaugar area, Hrafntinnusker. The hut on Hrafntinnusker, Hoskuldarskali, was built in 1977 at 1027 meters above mean sea level, the house is geothermally heated the whole year round.
Our hut at Hrafntinnusker is named after Obsidian which is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock. It is produced when felsic lava extruded from a volcano cools rapidly with minimal crystal growth.
In our traditional hut our guide will cook a traditional mountain BBQ before we head off to bed and rest for our next snowmobiling day.

Day 2: Landmannalaugar area – Reykjavík

Now the sun has come up and our day continues. After a nice breakfast our expert snowmobile guide will lay out the plan for our second day in the in the Fjallabak Nature Reserve in the Highlands of Iceland. Fjallabak Nature Reserve was established in 1979. The Nature reserve is 47.000 hectares and is over 500 meters above sea level. The land is mountainous, sculptured by volcanoes and geothermal activity, covered by lavas, sands, rivers and lakes. So, no worries there is still a lot of treasures to explore in this vast mountainous area.
After a nice day of snowmobiling we will start to head on towards our pick-up vehicle, which will drive us to Reykjavík.
We expect to be back in Reykjavík in the evening.
