On this tour, you will be picked up at your selected location in Reykjavík. From there, you will start your exploration of the South Coast. You’ll start by visiting the main base in South Iceland where you will suit up in warm overalls and safety gear. Next, you’ll ride a glacier truck up to the snowmobile base on the glacier. From the snowmobile base, you will ride up to the top of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier.

During the tour, you will have plenty of opportunities to take pictures and film the stunning landscape that surrounds you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to have a valid drivers license to drive a snowmobile?

Yes, you must have a valid driving license and be at least 18 years of age to operate the snowmobile.

If you do not have a valid license, you can ride in the back of the snowmobile of your licensed travel partner. Kids also ride on the back of their parents’ snowmobiles, who must hold a valid license.

What is the difference between a double ride and a single ride?

The standard price for the tour includes a double ride, which means that two persons ride together on one snowmobile.

If you would like to ride the snowmobile by yourself, you can book a single ride at an additional cost.

Note that snowmobiles are not shared with other guests on the tour, so if you are traveling by yourself or in a group with odd numbers, such as 3 or 5, you must book a single ride for one person.

What should I wear on this tour?

You should wear warm, windproof clothing in addition to good, sturdy shoes. Keep in mind that the weather in Iceland can change quickly, so it’s essential to wear proper clothing.

You will be supplied with warm overalls and safety gear on location for the snowmobile tour, but you should still dress in warm clothing underneath your overalls.
