FROM 33,999 ISK

If snowmobiling is on your Iceland bucket list then why not go zooming across an ice cap? Your local guide will take you in their powerful super jeep to the ice cap where you can gear up and jump on a snowmobile to zoom across the glacier.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a meet on location tour so you will need to find your way to the location yourself. 

This tour is a total of 2-4 hours, depending on the season, with an hour on the snowmobile riding across the glacier. However, that’s only a part of the experience as the view from atop the ice cap is quite incomparable with the entire south coast and Westman Islands on one side and the central Highlands on the other.

There are scheduled departures (at least) twice a day most days. We recommend arriving half an hour earlier at their base of operations to check in and get suited and booted. Their groups can have up to 26 people (usually shared ride) so if you are interested in a more intimate experience then you can drop us an email to learn about their private options.
