An exciting and fun tour on top of the Mýrdalsjökull Ice Cap.
Tour code: AG002
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.
Extended duration: Due to changed snow conditions, it now takes longer to reach the snowline for our snowmobile tours. This will not affect the duration of the snowmobile ride, but the overall duration of the tour will be extended. As a result, the duration of this tour can be up to 3 hours instead of the usual 2 hours scheduled for the tour.
Please note: This tour is operated by our partners at Arcanum Glacier tours. All drivers must be 17 years of age or older and have a full, valid driver's license. A learner´s permit, tractor, or motorcycle license is not sufficient according to Icelandic law. Single riders and groups with odd numbers are required to book a single ride snowmobile.
Accessible to all people in good health.
