Epic 2.5 Hour Glacier Snowmobiling Tour on Myrdalsjokull
Join this exciting tour opportunity to the top of the majestic Mýrdalsjökull Glacier for a dose of adrenaline-fuelled snowmobiling action! This is a fantastic tour choice for those looking to pack in some adventure during their time exploring Iceland's gorgeous nature.
To begin this snowmobiling adventure, make your own way to the designated meeting point, Ytri-Sólheimar 1, by the roots of the glacier. There, you will meet your qualified snowmobile guide and get dressed up in an insulated winter over-all. After a short briefing, you will step into a real glacier truck and drive up the mountain to the snowmobile base (1 hour each way).
Once participants have had a short briefing on how to operate the snowmobiles, been provided with necessary safety equipment and the guides have been through the relevant safety procedures, you will pull the throttle and make the hair-raising journey to the top of Mýrdalsjökull glacier. Prepare for some serious speed as you find yourself whizzing across the wild and open expanse of the Mýrdalsjökull ice cap.
The glacier is the fourth largest in Iceland, reaching up to 1510 m (5000 ft), and is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful glaciers in Iceland. At the top of this gorgeous ice cap, you will step off the snowmobile at the location of Katla Caldera, one of Iceland’s most known volcanoes, which rests about 750 m (2500 ft) under your feet.
The tour offers a fun, scenic and comfortably challenging snowmobiling ride. It is a great way to explore and experience the wilderness, the glacier and the breathtaking view over the South Coast of Iceland. Make sure not to forget your camera since you'll definitely want to photograph the natural splendour that surrounds you.
