Whizz across the stunning snowscapes of the mighty Vatnajökull glacier on a snowmobile with this thrilling sub-arctic adventure. This tour should not be missed by those seeking an authentic glacier experience in southeast Iceland.
You will meet your guides at Flatey dairy farm, and team up with your group before you are transported to Vatnajökull glacier base camp where your snowmobiles are waiting.
You can ride as a passenger if you are eight or above but need a valid driver’s licence (or the official translation if written in non-Latin characters) to operate one. Two people will be assigned to each snowmobile, but you can ride by yourself at an additional cost.
At base camp, you’ll change into the overalls and helmet provided, before you are given a safety briefing. Don't worry, you don’t need any experience, as snowmobiles are very easy to operate. Then, it's time to mount your snowmobile and set off.
Snowmobiling is one of the most exhilarating excursions you can take in Iceland; the fresh winds rushing against you as you race over the glacier provide an adrenaline-pumping thrill.
Aside from the great adventure, you will expose yourself to amazing views across the gleaming surface of the ice and snow, and of the highlands, east and south of the country.
You will stop halfway through your adventure to take photos, and switch the driver if applicable so you can experience the ride as a passenger too. You can ask your glacier guide anything you want to know about the ice caps and the surrounding nature, and they will be happy to answer.
At the end of the tour, you’ll return your snowmobile to the base camp and be dropped off back at Flatey or Jökulsárlón.
