Snowmobile and Glacier Kayaking South Coast Combo

On this tour, you start with a snowmobile ride tot the top of Mýrdalsjökull glacier, and then explore the icebergs of Sólheimajökull Glacier Lagoon on kayak. Your day begins at Arcanum Base (Mýrdalsjökull Base) where you meet your snowmobile guide and dress up before heading up to the ice cap in a real glacier truck (30 min each way). There, you wil board the snowmobile and head to the top of Mýrdalsjökull glacier. You will get plenty of opportunity to photograph the scenery and take in the amazing South Coast views.

After the snowmobile tour, you must travel on your own to our base at Sólheimajökull. You will get detailed driving instructions on your voucher if you book the tour. There, you meet up with your expert guide and get geared up for the kayaking part. The kayaks are stable sit-on-top kayaks, and no prior experience is needed, but your guide will give you a thorough tutorial before you head out to the lagoon. There, you will paddle between majestic icebergs that have broken off the outlet glacier and enjoy panoramic views of the glacier and the mountains that surround it.
