Description

Join the snowmobiling adventure of a lifetime and whizz over the mighty Eyjafjallajokull glacial volcano while getting a gorgeous view over Iceland's spectacular South Coast.

While the glacier is amazing from below, nothing beats experiencing it from its surface, especially at high speeds. This tour is the perfect option for those looking for a scenic, fun ride, exploring and experiencing the wilderness, the glacier, and the breathtaking views over South Iceland.

Eyjafjallajokull is Iceland's sixth largest ice cap with a summit elevation of 1,666 metres (5,465 ft). It covers the caldera of a volcano which has erupted relatively frequently since the last glacial period, most recently in 2010 when its eruption caused enormous disruption to air travel across western and northern Europe.

There is, however, no need to worry - the glacier is monitored closely, and tours will never be conducted there if it shows the slightest signs of preparing for an eruption.

The tour starts from Bru Camp Base at Road 249. Your guides will take you through all the fundamental safety procedures and equip you with special clothing and helmets. They then provide you with everything you need for a safe and comfortable ride.

You'll dress up in a snowsuit and hop into a super jeep that takes you onto the glacier.

Once there, you will be matched with a snowmobile and head out onto the glacier. The snowmobiles are easy to drive, as it is just a matter of squeezing the accelerator or the brake.

As you venture further into this frozen expanse, breathtaking views of South Iceland unfold before you. The experience is captivating, surrounded by expansive snowfields, towering mountains, and other majestic landmarks.

Effortlessly glide across the powdery snow as your guide imparts knowledge about glaciers and the myths about them.

Snowmobiling on top of Eyjafjallajokull glacier is an extraordinary experience, and this 3-hour snowmobiling tour is the perfect length of time for experienced and first-time riders alike (about 1 hour on the snowmobile).

During the ride, you will not only intimately get to know the essence of one of Iceland's most stunning glaciers, but you will also be exposed to stunning landscapes and views that are sure to leave memories to last a lifetime.

Don't miss the chance to be part of this extraordinary snowmobiling adventure in Iceland. Secure your spot now on this once-in-a-lifetime experience that combines thrill, beauty, and the magic of Eyjafjallajokull. 

Book now and embark on a winter escapade that promises to be the highlight of your Icelandic journey. Check availability by choosing a date.
