South Coast and Snowmobile

Certified Operator     Tour Operator: Icelandic Mountain Guides / Arcanum     10h 30m     Travel method: Bus     Region: Capital Region

The South Coast and Snowmobile is a great way to enjoy a memorable day on south Iceland. 

In the morning we pick you up before heading out of town. 

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 teaching 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 snowmobile ride. It is a great way to explore and experience 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 known volcanoes, Katla caldera, rests about 750 meters under our feet’s. 

The glacier adventure provides stunning photo opportunities to remind you of the beautiful, wild and pure Iceland. 

We provide you with the 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.   

Please note: To operate the snowmobiles a valid driver license is required.
