Come along on a fantastic tour of the glacial peninsula of Snæfellsnes. See the diverse sights of the area before jumping into a snowcat to ride across the white expanse of Snæfellsjökull glacier. Those looking for an exciting adventure should not miss this excursion.

This fun-filled day tour departs from Snæfellsnes Peninsula. From the charming Grundarfjörður, home town of the famose Krikjufell mountain, you'll hop aboard a large 4x4 truck, specially built to handle the rough glacial landscapes of Iceland, and make your way to the magnificent Snæfellsjökull glacier. 

The path from Grundarfjörður to the glacier has some fantastic historical locations like Krikjufell mountain, and Búlandshöfði.

At the roots of Snæfellsjökull, you'll exchange the 4x4 truck for a snowcat that will take you on a breathtaking ride. You'll travel through the white expanse of Snæfellsjökull glacier, which covers a 7000-year-old stratovolcano.

Snæfellsjökull is one of the most famous sites in Iceland, gaining international attention when Jules Verne made it the entryway to the centre of the earth in his classic sci-fi novel 'Journey to the Centre of the Earth'. The whole area is said to hold a mystical energy and driving along the ice and lava promises to be a unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
