South Iceland is certainly spectacular from "below” but nothing tops experiencing it from "above” Our snowmobile tour goes to the top of Mýrdalsjökull glacier - an icecap covering one of Iceland’s largest volcano, Katla.
Explore and experience the wilderness and the breathtaking views over South Iceland.
The snowmobile tour is perfect for those who are looking for a scenic fun ride on a glacier and want to explore the wilderness and breathtaking view over South Iceland. The length of the tour is suitable for first time riders.
The tour starts with a short briefing and dressing up at the main base. Next we board a real glacier truck and head up the mountain towards the glacier and the location of the snowmobiles. The snowmobile ride takes you to the top of Mýrdalsjökull glacier.
This glacier adventure tour will give you an opportunity to photograph and film the scenery and the nature, for a remembrance of a great day in wild and pure Iceland.
Everything you need for a safe and comfortable ride is provided – just bring yourself. The guides will go through safety procedures and hand out the special clothing and helmets. Driving a snowmobile is easy – you either step on the accelerator or the brakes.
All drivers must be 17 years of age or older and have a full, valid driver's license. Please note that a learner´s permit, tractor, or motorcycle license is not sufficient according to Icelandic law.
