Riding a snowmobile on a frozen lake or in a recently erupted volcanic area is an experience unforgotten. Come with us and enjoy the winter wonderland of North Iceland with a different view than most others.

We offer free pick up in the Lake Mývatn area, we come and pick you up for your tour and drive you to our location. You can also meet us on location and we will have everything ready for you.

Our local guides will welcome you and get you geared up with overalls, helmets and boots for the tour, educate about our safety features and how to drive a snowmobile. A valid driver's licence is required to operate a snowmobile but others are welcome as passengers, our snowmobiles have very comfortable passenger seats.

In the early and late winter season, we run our tours from the Krafla area. Krafla is a caldera (10km in diameter) that sits on the sections of the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates and is one of Iceland’s main volcano systems, 29 recorded eruptions have happened there since Icelanders came here. The last eruption lasted from 1975 to 1984 and the still steaming lava fields and craters are a part of our scenery for our tour.

High winter season we start from Skútustaðir and drive on the frozen Lake Mývatn, a lake famous for its beautiful nature, out of this world lava formations and one of the world’s most diverse birdlife. All around the lake craters can be seen of all shapes and size. These are called pseudocraters and we will tell you all about them on our tour.

You will drive off in a single formation and experience an hour of pure fun and pleasure, driving on the beautiful blanket of snow. Your guide will make a few stops and tell you all about the amazing surroundings we encounter on our tour. It gives you the time to admire the landscape and maybe take a few pictures.
