South Iceland and Snowmobile Tour on Glacier

Join this tour to the south coast with snowmobiling on a glacier for a great and memorable day in Iceland.

You'll be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík before heading to our meeting point: Ytri-Sólheimar 1. There you'll get dressed up in an insulated winter over-all and after a short briefing we step into our super-jeeps and drive up the mountain to the snowmobile base. Once participants have had a short teaching how to operate the snowmobiles and the guides been through the safety procedures we push the throttle and ride to the top of Mýrdalsjökull glacier.

The tour offers a fun, scenic and comfortably challenging snowmobile ride for one hour. It is a great way to explore and experience the wilderness, the glacier and the breathtaking view over the south coast of Iceland. The glacier is the fourth largest in Iceland, reaching up to 1510 meters and at the top of the icecap we step off the snowmobiles where Katla caldera, one of Iceland’s most known volcanoes, rests about 750 meters under our feet.

The glacier adventure provides stunning photo opportunities to remind you of the beautiful, wild and pure Iceland. We provide you with the special clothing and all the equipment needed for the trip so you can enjoy a safe and comfortable ride. The south coast is certainly spectacular but it is an unbeatable experience seeing it from the glacier‘s top.

Please note: To operate the snowmobiles a valid driver license is required.

On the route back to Reykjavík we make stops by the picturesque waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.
