Mýrdalsjökull Snowmobile Tour
Ride across Mýrdalsjökull, the fourth largest glacier in Iceland and over the caldera of Mt.Katla, the legendary volcano.
Ride with us to the top of Katla. At the meeting point, our main base at Ytri-Sólheimar 1, you'll get dressed up in an insulated winter over-all and after a short briefing we step into our super-jeeps and drive up the mountain to the snowmobile base.
Once participants have had a short lesson on how to operate the snowmobiles and the guides been through the safety procedures we push the throttle and ride to the top of Mýrdalsjökull glacier.
The tour offers a fun, scenic and comfortably challenging snowmobiling ride. It is a great way to explore and experiencing the wilderness, the glacier and the breathtaking view over the south coast of Iceland. The glacier is the fourth largest in Iceland, reaching up to 1510 meters and at the top of the icecap we step of the snowmobiles where one of Iceland’s most reknown volcanoes, Katla caldera, rests about 750 meters under our feet.
This glacier adventure provides stunning photo opportunities to remind you of the beautiful, wild and pure Iceland. We provide you with special clothing and all the equipment needed for the trip so you can enjoy a safe and comfortable ride. The south coast is certainly spectacular but it is an unbeatable experience seeing it from the glacier‘s top.
