Meeting point for your Snowmobile tour is Arcanum Base (Mýrdalsjökull Base). Arcanum Base is located 9 km East of Skógar and 23 km West of Vík. The distance from Reykjavík is 160 km and the driving time is about 2,5 hrs. Take Road #222 and drive about 1,2 km to Arcanum Base (Mýrdalsjökull Base) (see road map). Please be ready 30 minutes before departure time.
There you will get a short briefing about the tour and be fitted with all the equipment needed for the tour (warm over-all, balaclava face mask, helmet). Next you will board the glacier truck that will take you up the mountain (about 30 min) to the ice-field where we find the snowmobiles. There your guide will explain to you how the snowmobile works and how to ride it in a safe and fun way. After about 1 hour of snowmobiling we go back down in the glacier truck (about 30 min) to the Arcanum Base where the tour ends
We always recommend to book as soon as you are ready especially if you have a strict travel schedule or a large group. It is easy to change or cancel 24 hours before departure by emailing us ([email protected]). Tours can also be purchased the day of as long as there are spaces available.
