Overview
Adventure by snowmobile along the winding ice trails of Myrdalsjokull glacier. This Icelandic snowmobile safari outfits you in a helmet and insulated overalls, taking you through rugged wilderness on a fun, guided tour that’s perfect for first-time riders. Stop along the way to capture memories of the scenic mountain landscape. Pick from a choice of times to best fit your schedule.
What to Expect
Choose between a morning, midday or afternoon snowmobile safari. Each tour leaves from the base of Myrdalsjokull glacier, a short drive west of Vic. From there, you’ll pull on a helmet and a set of insulated, cold-weather overalls, get a safety lesson from your English-speaking guide and board the off-road bus that transports you on the half-hour trip (each way) to the glacier trail head.

At Myrdalsjokull, you’ll hop on a two-person snowmobile with a driver (solo riders pay a surcharge) and set off on a 1-hour ride with a small group and English-speaking guide.

Along the way, you’ll be able to stop and snap photos of the dramatic Icelandic scenery. Afterward, you’ll end your tour where it began.

UNBELIEVABLE!!

Tip: you don’t need to pack anything - they have everything. You may want your own gloves. They have everything else you need. This was an amazing afternoon. We were a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children (8 and 5 years old)). We...More

Brilliant. Highlight of my visit to the south

This was an excellent trip. I’ve been on similar excursions in the past where they basically keep you all on the same track and follow a set route. These guys took us all over the icecap at a pace that suited everyone in the group....More

We went snowmobiling in July so I'd say it's a year round activity.
