Snowmobile Tour on Myrdalsjökull Glacier

Snowmobile Tour on Myrdalsjökull Glacier
Mýrdalsjökull Glacier is open, white and authentically Icelandic, the perfect spot for snowmobiling.
Mýrdalsjökull Glacier is, naturally, freezing; but snowmobiles are capable of handling extreme temperatures.
Riding a snowmobile in pairs is an incredibly bonding experience.
Depending on the weather at Mýrdalsjökull Glacier, you may or not see the mountains that surround the glacier.
It's hard to describe the feeling of freedom that comes across you when snowmobiling.
Mýrdalsjökull Glacier is north of Vík and east of Eyjafjallajökull Volcano.

Jump into this exciting snowmobile tour all the way to the top of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, visiting amazing South Coast attractions along the way. This adventure is perfect for all, both thrillseekers and sightseers, visiting Iceland. 

You will be picked up in the city of Reykjavík and board a modern and comfortable bus, ready to take you across the fantastic landscapes of the South Coast before reaching the foot of the glacier for your snowmobile adventure. 

Along the way, you will stop at the gorgeous Seljalandsfoss waterfall, the crowning glory of the river Seljalandsá. Feel the spray on your face and breathe in the pure air as the waterfall crashes down into the basin below. Don't forget to take the rocky path behind the waterfall to experience it from a different perspective. Look out through the water over the rolling countryside and hear the calling of the gulls winging past the cliffs.

You will also stop at the majestic and much-photographed Skógafoss waterfall. One of the widest waterfalls in Iceland, so much spray is created by its mighty waters that a rainbow is often visible on sunny days.

Then, it is time to embark on a snowmobile adventure, where you will zip across the surface of Mýrdalsjökull glacier, surrounded by an incredibly pristine winter scenery. 

Finally, you will visit Skógar Folk Museum to appreciate the hardships of life in Iceland in past centuries. The museum sports a meticulously curated collection of approximately 15,000 artefacts exhibited in 6 buildings which have been fully restored for guests curious about Icelandic history and lore.

Don't miss out on this zippy trip to the top of one of Iceland's premier natural wonders, including both the adventure of snowmobiling and the joys of sightseeing nature. Check availability by choosing a date.
