Tour description

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. 

Everything you need for a safe and comfortable ride is provided  – just bring yourself. 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.
