The Mýrdalsjökull glacier is Iceland’s fourth largest glacier and covers the volcano Katla. We will take you up the mountain in a real glacier truck (about 30 min each way). Once there we’ll get on our snowmobiles and ride up the ice cap. From there we can enjoy the glacier landscapes and scenery over south Iceland (weather dependent). You will be taught how to handle the snowmobile to enjoy this adventure in a fun but safe way. The duration of this tour is suitable for first time riders.
Extended duration: Due to changed snow conditions, it now takes longer to reach the snowline for our snowmobile tours. This will not affect the duration of the snowmobile ride, but the overall duration of the tour will be extended. As a result, the duration of this tour can be up to 3 hours instead of the usual 2 hours scheduled for the tour.
