Package Itinerary

While the south is certainly spectacular from "below” nothing beats experiencing it from "above”!

Snowmobiling on top of Eyjafjallajökull glacier is an extraordinary experience and a once in a lifetime experience.

This tour is the perfect length of time for 'first-time riders' and individuals looking for a scenic, fun-ride, exploring and experiencing the wilderness, the glacier and the breathtaking views over south Iceland.

In perfect conditions the jaw dropping view includes Westman Islands, the whole south coast all the way to Ingólfsfjall and even a big part of the highlands!

The tour starts from our base, Gljúfrabúi by Road 249. After a short briefing where your guide takes you through safety procedures we dress up in a snow suit and helmet and hop into our modified Super Jeep. We then drive towards Eyjafjallajökull and up it's slopes, onto the glacier base where we keep our snowmobiles.

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, then the tour can take up to 4 hours.

What to bring

Warm outdoor clothing, waterproof jacket and pants, head-wear, gloves and lunch. Appropriate hiking boots/shoes are required.

What is included

1 hour snowmobile ride, insulated cover-all, helmet and snowmobile balaclava face mask.

We provide you with everything you need for a safe and comfortable ride.

‘Shared ride’ is when two people share one snowmobile. Each snowmobile can take 1-2 people at a time.
