December Snowmobile Experience
, Jan 2022
Fun experience, snow mobiling on what felt like the top of the world. Meet in parking lot, bus ride up glacier, then suited up like astronauts - all well worth it!

Thank you for your review. We're happy that you enjoyed the day with us!
Poor communication
, Jan 2022
The trip was cancelled but Viator didn’t inform us at all. Arrived at the pickup site (1,5 hour drive with only 4 hours of daylight in wintertime) but no one was there. Had to call the tour company, who informed everyone by e-mail, the trip was cancelled due to bad weather. Viator didnt forward that e-mail to us, one vacation day ruined. Still waiting for our refund!

We're sorry for your experience during that day. There have sometimes been issues with Viator bookings delivering to our system. As I understand this is a temporary issue. We do notify all parties (at least the ones we're aware of) when we cancel due to the weather or other conditions. When the weather conditions are unfavorable we're forced to cancel tours for safety reasons. The rest of your review is more directed straight to Viator.
Not what you expect, but still very cool.

The off-roading bus, snowmobiles, and cave were all really neat. The cave was very small but still very neat to see. The guides were not the most friendly but it was still worth it and fun overall.

Getting to drive the snowmobiles each
, Mar 2020
Me and my boyfriend done this experience, we absolutely loved it! It’s worth the money, our guides were very pleasant and had lots of info! They always made sure we were all safe and together which was reassuring as I had never driven one of these before nor have I driven in a car on snow! The weather was bright but snowing so it made it a little difficult to see but still, the ice cave is pretty incredible! what a experience I’ll never forget Thankyou to sniper!!

Sniper is one of a kind type of guy and we love him as well. So nice to hear you had such a great time and that you loved the Ice Cave. Welcome back anytime.
Breathtaking view of the cold side of mother nature
, Feb 2020
We never had any experience riding a snowmobile let alone driving one. Our guide, Sniper was very thorough with the instructions and we all did make it to the ice cave and back to base camp safely. The ice cave was astonishing and the expanse of snow-covered mountains was breathtaking.

Thank you for an amazing review and recommendation, so good you had such an amazing time. Sniper is one of a kind guy, unfortunately. So glad you liked the Ice Cave.
Exhilarting Experience!!!
, Jul 2019
This is a must do! The tour is very well organised and the skilled driver of the monster truck who also doubles as your instructor was very patient. The only downside I found was the tour we booked did not have a pick up in Reykjavik. So I had to pre book a cab for the whole day to take us to Gulfoss and bring us back. Luckile, the cab driver was an excellent driver and very friendly. At Gulfoss the Monster truck takes you to base camo where you change into your snow clothing and over shoes and head for the Glacier. Once there, you are given a lesson in how to operate your snowmobiles. You can easily give the Iave a miss (Atleast I was not too taken up) and drive your snowmobile for the fun experience. An unforgettable trip!!

Dear Traveller, Thank you so much for your nice review and for making all the effort to get to the meeting place. We are so glad you had such a great time with us and would love to welcome you again. We do offer a Super 4x4 snowmobile and ice cave tour with pick-up in Reykjavik in case travellers do not have a rental car to meet us on location.

Bello il giro sulla motoslitta, però non abbiamo visitato la grotta di ghiaccio. Abbiamo pagato il tour per fare il giro sulla Motoslitta e per visitare La grotta di ghiaccio, ma non l’abbiamo visitata.
