Hop on to this full-day tour snowmobiling in Iceland's beautiful Central Highlands and experience the freedom of speeding across a blanket of white snow. This is the perfect tour choice for travellers to Iceland looking to add a real level of excitement and adventure to their trip.
This tour begins at the operator's base at Hamragarður next to Gljúfrabúi, by Road 249. There, you will meet your friendly, experienced and certified snowmobiling guides for the day; they will proceed to give you a safety briefing, a basic rundown on snowmobiling and all of the necessary gear, including a snowsuit and helmet.
Fear not if you've never tried snowmobiling before. Though some experience is a plus, this tour is open to all levels, from total newbies to pro-riders. When everyone is ready, it's time to take your seat in the modified super jeep for a short journey onto Eyjafjallajökull glacier.
Eyjafjallajökull is most famous for the 2010 eruption that shut down air traffic across mainland Europe. Don't worry about that today, however, from atop the snowmobile, the ice cap will appear as an open canvas, ready for a little action! Thankfully, this tour is not a "lead and follow" type of affair. Instead, you're free to carve your own path across the ice.
Nothing can quite describe that feeling of adrenaline as the wind blows through your hair, your hand trembling on the throttle. This is surely one of the most adventurous activities available in the country.
From the top of the glacier, you will be exposed to some truly some incredible views over Iceland's South Coast. Make sure not to forget your camera, for views like this only come along a few times in a lifetime!
Don't delay any longer! Book now and you too can conquer the mighty Eyjafjallajökull glacier on your very own snowmobiling adventure in Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.
