Scale the snowy slopes of Múlakolla Mountain in a powerful snowcat on this unique sightseeing tour from Ólafsfjörður. If you happen to be staying in or passing through the North of Iceland and are looking for something special to add to your holiday, this winter adventure is perfect for you.

The tour sets out from the town Ólafsfjörður in northeast Iceland, located at the mouth of Eyjafjörður fjord. After meeting up with your guide, get ready to board an authentic snowcat, typically used to smooth snow for skiing routes. Rest assured that your snowcat will take you places a car never could.

Your destination is the upper slopes of Múlakolla mountain, but its peak sits at approximately 984 metres above sea level. You will find yourself standing at the brink of the dramatic mountain range belonging to Tröllaskagi, also called the Troll Peninsula. These mountains are the tallest in all of Iceland outside the central Highlands and offer some of the most sweeping sceneries of the North.

On a clear day, the views you can expect to see reach across the fjord and out to the Atlantic Ocean, where the islands Hrísey and Grímsey rest along with their sleepy fishing villages. These islands are the northernmost populated areas in Iceland, with Grímsey being the only part of the country that actually sits partly on the Arctic Circle.

In the other direction, expect to see powerful rivers cut through the beautiful countryside of the North. Remember to bring your camera along for all the unique photo opportunities on your journey, sure to leave your friends back home green with envy.

Once you trail back down the mountain, there will be plentiful chances to meet the locals of Ólafsfjörður and get a taste of their quiet village life. 

Seize this opportunity now to enjoy the spectacular mountain views of the North on a real snowcat. Check availability by choosing a date.
