Overview
Adventure by snowmobile along the winding ice trails of Myrdalsjokull glacier. This Icelandic snowmobile safari outfits you in a helmet and insulated overalls, taking you through rugged wilderness on a fun, guided tour that’s perfect for first-time riders. Stop along the way to capture memories of the scenic mountain landscape. Pick from a choice of times to best fit your schedule.
Highlights
  • Experience Iceland’s snowy wilderness at scenic Myrdalsjokull glacier
  • Race by snowmobile along winding trails, led by an English-speaking guide
  • An easy, fun tour for first-time riders, with cold-weather clothing provided
  • Three convenient tour times to fit your travel schedule
What to Expect
Choose between a morning, midday or afternoon snowmobile safari. Each tour leaves from the base of Myrdalsjokull glacier, a short drive west of Vic. From there, you’ll pull on a helmet and a set of insulated, cold-weather overalls, get a safety lesson from your English-speaking guide and board the off-road bus that transports you on the half-hour trip (each way) to the glacier trail head. At Myrdalsjokull, you’ll hop on a two-person snowmobile with a driver (solo riders pay a surcharge) and set off on a ride with a small group and English-speaking guide. Along the way, you’ll be able to stop and snap photos of the dramatic Icelandic scenery. Afterward, you’ll end your tour where it began.
