Join this tour to the incredible South Coast with snowmobiling on Mýrdalsjökull glacier for an unforgettable experience in Iceland. This tour is ideal for both sightseers and thrill-seekers looking for the perfect day tour in the land of ice and fire. 

Your journey begins as you get picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík, before enjoying a scenic route as you head to the meeting point by the foot of the glacier, at Ytri-Sólheimar 1. There, you'll get dressed up in an insulated winter over-all and step into a powerful Super Jeep to drive up the mountain roads to the snowmobile base camp.

Once you have had the necessary teachings on how to operate the snowmobiles and the guides have been through the safety procedures, get ready to push the throttle and ride like the wind, all the way to the top of Mýrdalsjökull glacier.

You will then be facing a fun, scenic and adequately challenging snowmobile ride for approximately one hour. Taking part in this adventure is a great way to explore and experience the wilderness of the ice cap in question, as well as the breathtaking views stretching across the South Coast of Iceland.

You can also rejoice in the fact that about 750 m (2500 ft) underneath your feet, the great and powerful caldera of Katla is resting, but this roaring volcano is one of the most famous, as well as infamous, in all of Iceland. 

This glacier adventure provides stunning photo opportunities to remind you of the pristine and wild nature of Iceland. You will be provided with all the equipment needed for the trip, so you can enjoy a safe and comfortable ride. The South Coast is spectacular on its own, but it is an unbeatable experience seeing it from the top of a glacier.

Once your thrilling adventure zipping across the ice sheet comes to an end, you will make your way down the glacier and begin your ride back to the capital, but not before stopping at the renowned South Coast attractions of waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss. 

Don't hesitate in booking this exciting day tour in the land of ice and fire, experiencing the wonders of the South Coast and embarking on a riveting snowmobile ride. Check availability by choosing a date.
