The meeting point for this tour is at our Arcanum Base (Mýrdalsjökull Base) on road 222. There you will get a short briefing about the tour and be fitted with all the equipment needed for the tour (warm cover-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 with the glacier truck (about 30 min) to the Arcanum Base, where the tour ends.
An exciting and fun tour on top of the Mýrdalsjökull Ice Cap.

Snowmobile Tour on Mýrdalsjökull Glacier
This tour gives you the opportunity to go up on the top of a glacier. The Mýrdalsjökull glacier is Iceland's fourth largest glacier and covers the volcano Katla. To get up to the roots of the glacier we will take you up the mountain in a real glacier truck (about 30 min each way). Once there we'll get on our snowmobiles and ride up the ice cap. From there we can enjoy the glacier landscapes and scenery over south Iceland (weather dependent). Everything needed for the tour is provided and our expert guides will teach you how to handle the snowmobile to enjoy this adventure in a fun but safe way. The duration of the tour is suitable for first time riders.
