Snowmobile Tour on Mýrdalsjökull Glacier | South Iceland
Join this tour for a ride to the top of Mýrdalsjökull glacier, where you can go snowmobiling. Make your own way to the meeting point, our main base at Ytri-Sólheimar 1 by the roots of the glacier. 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 briefing on how to operate the snowmobiles and the guides have 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 snowmobiling ride. 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 metres 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 seeing it from the glacier‘s top is an unbeatable experience.
