Eyjafjallajökull Snowmobiling Tour
While the south is certainly spectacular from "below” nothing beats experiencing it from "above”, snowmobiling on top of Eyjafjallajökull glacier. The snowmobile tour is the perfect length of time for first-time riders and individuals looking for a scenic, fun ride, exploring and experiencing the wilderness, glacier and the breathtaking views over South Iceland in good weather. The tour starts from our base, after a short briefing and dressing up in a snow suit we step into a Super jeep and we drive up the mountain, to the glacier where we pick up the snowmobiles and ride to the glacier Eyjafjallajökull.
The tour starts from our base, Gljúfrabúi by Road 249. After a short briefing where your guide takes you through safety procedures we put on a snow suit and helmet (gloves and a mask are also provided) and hop into our modified super jeep. We then drive towards Eyjafjallajökull and up it's slopes, onto the glacier and to the base where we keep our snowmobiles.
Once there, we’ll climb onto snowmobiles for a heart-pumping experience of Iceland at its absolute best. As soon as we get onto the glacier, prepare to be struck by its size: a pristine expanse of snow dotted with rock formations and majestic ice sculptures.
As we push deeper into this icy wilderness, we’ll start to see some of the most impressive views over South Iceland. It is an enthralling experience with vast snowfields, towering mountains, and more majestic landmarks.
Glide across the powdery snow with ease. Your friendly guide will teach you all about glaciers and the myths that define them.
The duration of the tour varies from season to season since we drive up to the ever changing snow-line to reach our snowmobiles but the snowmobiling itself is about 1 hour.
In winter time it is easier to reach snow so the tour is about 2 hours, but in the summer time we need to drive higher to reach the snow-line, and then the tour can take up to 4 hours.
Note: Price is without Pick up or Drop off.
The glacier adventure will provide stunning photo opportunities in good weather. We provide you with everything you need for a safe and comfortable ride – bring only yourself. Our guides will take you through safety procedures and equip you in special clothing and helmets.
The snowmobiles will not be a problem – it is just a matter of squeezing the accelerator or the brake.
