Snowmobile Tours on Mýrdalsjökull Glacier

The snowmobile tour is the perfect length of time for first-time riders and individuals looking for a scenic, fun ride, exploring and experiencing the wilderness, glacier and the breathtaking views over South Iceland. The tour starts at the farm Sólheimakot, after a short briefing and dressing up in a snowsuit we step into a super-jeep and we drive up the mountain to the glacier where we pick up the snowmobiles and ride to the top of the glacier Mýrdalsjökull. The glacier adventure will provide stunning photo opportunities to remind you of probably your best day in the wild and pure Iceland. We provide you with everything you need for a safe and comfortable ride – bring only yourself. Our guides will take you through safety procedures and equip you in special clothing and helmets. The snowmobiles will not be a problem – it is just a matter of squeezing the accelerator or the brake.

Location - where is Myrdalsjokull Glacier?

Mýrdalsjökull is located north of the small town of Vík í Mýrdal, east of Eyjafjallajökull (which dominated world news in 2010 when it erupted and disturbed flight traffic in Europa for days). Fimmvörðuháls, which is one of the most popular walking routes in the Icelandic wilderness, lies between Mýrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull. The main driving route, Route 1, lies close to Mýrdalsjökull and the glacier can be viewed when traveling on Route 1.

Day Tours from Reykjavík

You can enjoy a Snowmobile tour as a day tour from Reykjavík where we pick you up at your accommodation and take you to our base where we prepare you for the trip to the top of Mýrdalsjökull.

Where is the location of Arcanum base

Meet us on Location for Snowmobiling Tours on Myrdalsjokull.  Our base is located at Ytri-Sólheimar 1 at the foothills of Mýrdalsjökull so the trip from the base to the glacier is short. We take you up to the glacier, where the snow scooters are located, in our super-truck, and from there we proceed the journey to the top of the glacier. The location of our base makes us the ideal travel partner as we are located so close to the glacier that we are always well aware of how the condition up on the glacier are.

Safety Precautions

Our team has years of experience in guiding and snowmobiling in this area. The goal here is to provide safe and entertaining tours, zooming on glaciers. Our staff will take good care of everyone while all they have to do is having fun. The only requisite to drive a snowmobile is a valid driver’s license and to be over 18 years old. Novices can relax, no previous experience is required to do this kind of tour. Of course, everybody needs to be sober and totally responsible for their own actions. It is really important to follow the rules that were given before the departure. Among them, it is primordial to do a single line behind the guide, or differ between Mario Kart and the reality.
