Snowmobile on Eyjafjallajokull

Based on 1 traveller reviews

While the south is certainly spectacular from "below” nothing beats experiencing it from "above”! Snowmobiling on top of Eyjafjallajökull glacier is an extraordinary experience.

This 1 hour snowmobile tour is the perfect length of time for first-time riders and individuals looking for a scenic, fun ride, exploring and experiencing the wilderness, the glacier and the breathtaking views over South Iceland in good weather.

The tour starts from our base. After a short briefing, we dress up in the snow suit and step into a Super Jeep. We then drive up the mountain, onto the glacier where we pick up the snowmobiles and ride to the glacier Eyjafjallajökull.

The glacier adventure will provide stunning photo opportunities in good weather. We provide you with everything you need for a safe and comfortable ride – bring only yourself. Our guides will take you through safety procedures and equip you in special clothing and helmets.

The snowmobiles will not be a problem – it is just a matter of squeezing the accelerator or the brake.

** Gljúfrabúi base. Road 249 **

We are located about 1 hour and 40 minutes drive away east of Reykjavík by Road 1. The duration of the drive often takes much longer time in icy and winter conditions.

Eyjafjallajökull is the 6th largest ice caps of Iceland, located just north of Skógar and west of Mýrdalsjökull. The ice cap covers the caldera of a volcano with a summit elevation of 1,666 metres (5465 ft). The volcano has erupted relatively frequently since the last glacial period, most recently in 2010. The 2010 eruptions caused enormous disruption to air travel across western and northern Europe over an initial period of six days in April 2010.
