Tour Description

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 an adventure not to be missed!
Our adventure begins when we all meet at our base camp close to the legendary Eyjafjallajokull Glacier. There, one of our friendly certified tour guides will provide you with all the equipment that you need and give you a short safety briefing. Then it’s time to ride a specially designed super jeep to the starting point of your snowmobile ride.

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 the 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, Brú by Road 249. After a short briefing where your guide takes you through safety procedures, we put on a snowsuit and helmet (gloves and a mask are also provided) and hop into our modified super jeep. We then drive towards Eyjafjallajökull and up its slopes, onto the glacier, and to the base where we keep our snowmobiles.

Once there, we’ll climb onto snowmobiles for a heart-pumping experience of Iceland at its absolute best. As soon as we get onto the glacier, prepare to be struck by its size: a pristine expanse of snow dotted with rock formations and majestic ice sculptures.

As we push deeper into this icy wilderness, we’ll start to see some of the most impressive views over South Iceland. It is an enthralling experience with vast snowfields, towering mountains, and more majestic landmarks.

Glide across the powdery snow with ease. Your friendly guide will teach you all about glaciers and the myths that define them.

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 wintertime, it is easier to reach snow so the tour is about 2 hours, but in the summertime, we need to drive higher to reach the snow-line, and then the tour can take up to 4 hours.
