You will meet us at Arcanum Base where we will take you up to the ice cap in a real glacier truck (30 min each way). Once there, we will ride across the ice field on our snowmobiles and enjoy the glacier wilderness and the amazing South Coast scenery.

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 will meet your certified and expert glacier guide, who will lead you on a 2.5 hour long excursion through the fascinating features of Sólheimajökull glacier. You will get a safety briefing and a tutorial on how to use your glacier equipment, and then you will go on a short and safe glacier walk around the deep crevasses, ice formations and tunnels on Sólheimajökull.
