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.

Don't overthink it, you wont have any regrets!

To be honest we did this tour on a perfect day so our experience might differ from yours as there were no weather considerations (wind, rain). We had thought about doing this tour and almost left without doing it. On our final day we decided...More

Exhilarating!

This was amazing! From changing into the thermals, to the big snow truck that took us up to the glacier, to riding in the back with my husband driving. Going through the side of the hills and having to put your weight towards it.. wow!...More

Wow is right!

All necessary gear is included, so it's a pretty pricey adventure, but worth it. Hats, balaclavas, helmets, gloves, real overalls, boots. The ride up to the glacier is pretty amazing. The huge ATV began its life as a rocket launcher. It can climb anything. Everyone...More

I think it's 2 hours. You'd likely stop by the geyser on your way there
