Travel across the vast snowcaps of Vatnajokull, the largest glacier in Europe, with this three-hour snowmobiling tour during the midnight sun in Iceland. Those seeking the perfect glacier adventure in Iceland with added adrenaline rush should not miss this tour. 

The small-group snowmobiling tour begins at the operator's base camp, near Hotel Smyrlabjorg. Your operator will supply you with your overalls and helmets for safer snowmobiling. Thus, make sure to arrive at least 30 minutes before departure so you can get suited up for your adventure. 

When you are ready, you will journey to the top of the Vatnajokull glacier, where you will get a snowmobile. Snowmobiles are very easy to operate, and even first-timers can use them. Moreover, trained and experienced guides will guide you on how to run a snowmobile and give you some safety rules before you can start riding. 

During your snowmobiling tour, you will experience one of the most exciting tours in Iceland as you race across the snow. You will also see amazing views, from the gleaming surface of ice and snow illuminated by the midnight sun to the highlands of southeast Iceland. 

Halfway through the midnight sun tour, you'll stop to take a rest. Your break is the perfect time to take photos of your surroundings and ask your guide questions. Your guide will also give you information about the area, tell local stories, and even share a fairytale or two. 

The small-group tour is available for only a limited time of the year because the midnight sun in Iceland only happens in midsummer. During this time of the year, the sun never fully sets, making it the best time to explore the nature of Iceland, especially its glaciers.

Also, during this time, the golden hour, considered the best time to take landscape photos, extends to almost seven hours. 

Another thing to note is that a valid driver's license is required if you want to drive a snowmobile. But, you can still enjoy the tour if you don't have one by riding the snowmobile as a passenger since the standard snowmobile carries up to two people.

Moreover, in case you don't wanna be paired with another person, you can purchase a "solo rider" option along with your standard ticket. 

Ride across the snowcaps of the Vatnajokull glacier and enjoy a unique experience with this stunning midnight sun and glacier tour in Iceland while riding a snowmobile. Check availability now by choosing a date.
