Itinerary
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 1-hour 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.

Wow.

The snowmobiling was spectacular, so we decided: “why not do the ATV tomorrow?” Both tours are spectacular. Do both if you can. Not only are they fun, but the views are incredible.
