Pingdom Check

Race across the snowy tundra, breathe in the fresh cool air and feel the adrenaline pumping.

All around you the diverse scenery is simply breath-taking, with glaciers rising majestically to the north and miles of coastal black sand beaches to the south. While you peacefully sail across the frozen expanse of Iceland’s fourth-largest glacier, the majesty of Iceland’s ever-changing relationship with Mother Nature is more evident with the infamous subglacial volcano Katla lurking just beneath.

A generous amount of time is provided with approximately 45 minutes at each major stop on this tour, including the waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss, plus the glaciers Solheimajökull and Myrdalsjökull. Your snowmobile ride will be approximately 1 hour as part of the 3-3.5 hours spent on the glacier.

Important: Price is based on two persons sharing one snowmobile. In order to ride solo, customers will be required to pay a fee of 7.000 ISK to the tour operator upon arrival on the day of their tour.

What do I bring? A few things! Lunch for your break on the glacier, good outdoor shoes, and since weather changes can be sudden and frequently unexpected, bring warm, waterproof clothes including jacket, pants, headwear and gloves.
This tour will have you in the comfort of your coach where each seat comes equipped with a USB power outlet and a touch screen tablet complete with a unique "In Bus Audio Guide" available in 10 languages, including Chinese, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish. Be sure to bring your own headphones so you can avoid having to purchase them on board.
