Itinerary

Snowmobiling on Myrdalsjökull

While the south is certainly spectacular from “below” nothing beats experiencing it from “above”, snowmobiling on 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 the perfect length of time for first-time riders and individuals looking for a scenic, fun ride, exploring and experiencing the wilderness, glacier and the breathtaking views over South Iceland in good weather. The tour starts from our base, after a short briefing and dressing up in a snow suit we step into a real glacier truck and drive up the mountain to the glacier where we pick up the snowmobiles and ride to the glacier Mýrdalsjökull.
The glacier adventure will provide stunning photo opportunities in good weather. We provide you with everything you need for a safe and comfortable ride – bring only yourself. Our guides will take you through safety procedures and equip you in special clothing and helmets.
The snowmobiles will not be a problem – it is just a matter of squeezing the accelerator or the brake.

A valid driver’s licence is required.
