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.

unforgetable experience

I imagined myself in an astronaut's suit. The trip over the glacier in the special truck is unforgettable and seems perilous, but the drivers know exactly what they are doing. On the snowmobile under a shining sky that is Iceland too!

Expensive but worth it.

Well organised trip with a very good leader. The weather was perfect which helped but would recommend anyway. Only slight negative is that you have to go at the pace of the slowest rider and therefore it can be a bit stop start.More

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