Amazing Snowmobile Adventure on Mýrdalsjökull Glacier

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 (weather dependent).

Everything you need for a safe and comfortable ride is provided. 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.

Please note: All drivers must be 17 years of age or older and have a full, valid driver's license. A learner's permit, tractor, or motorcycle license is not sufficient according to Icelandic law.

Single riders and groups with odd numbers are required to book a Single Rider option on tour.

...I've never been on a snow-mobile and was nervous about the experience and being too cold. So glad my family did this! Guides were excellent and clearly safety is a priority;their instructions were clear and easy to follow and they were attentive to each rider... Really wonderful way to experience a part of Iceland I would never have been able to see otherwise.

Great trip and great guide! My family and I had a great trip on our snow mobile tour with Pepe as our tour guide. He had the best attitude of any tour guide we’ve had... We will definitely be back and anybody who wants to experience being on top of the world should go on this tour... Would definitely recommend!

... We snowmobiled on the glacier with Arcanum — they provided great instructions about all aspects of the experience ... Our guides were very helpful and told us interesting info about the area and the volcanoes. For our teenage son this was the highlight of our entire trip, and we enjoyed it too.
