Vik: Mýrdalsjökull Snowmobile Adventure

1. Vik: Mýrdalsjökull Snowmobile Adventure

Go on a glacier snowmobiling ride on the majestic Mýrdalsjökull Glacier, an ice cap to the north of Vik, while enjoying panoramic views of the South Coast. Begin your tour at the Mýrdalsjökull Base Camp. Meet your guide and get dressed up in an insulated cover-all. Then, step aboard the glacier truck, specially modified to climb the steep mountain road leading up to the edge of the glacier. Once you reach the snowmobiles, get a briefing from the guide on how to safely operate the gear, before starting the ride. Be safely led through the crevassed ice field of Mýrdalsjökull. Upon making it to the top of the ice cap, step off the snowmobiles to admire the amazing views of Iceland's South Coast. Below your feet rests the giant Katla Volcano, hidden beneath the ice cap. After an hour-long ride, head back to the Base Camp. Make sure not to forget your camera to savor the sheer magnitude of the glacier.

What people are saying about Vik

Wohoooo! This was beyond expectation, an incredible fun and educational ride over the glacier. We were two adults and two kids and recommend this tour to everyone. Don’t worry if you wonder if you’ll be able to operate the snowmobile, it’s easy: throttle with your right thumb and brake with your left hand. No gear or clutch involved. If you are able to operate one of these shared electric city scooters you’ll be totally fine. Have fun!

Incredibly fun experience! Everyone was very welcoming right from the moment we arrived. Easy to find location as well. Our guide gave easy and clear instructions so we both (driver and passenger) felt absolutely confident and safe. Information about the glacier was shared at one stop and it was very interesting. We were able to take photos as well. Highly recommend this tour and this company!

We had a beautifully clear day and could see miles of the beautiful landscape from atop the glacier. Our guides were helpful and knowledgeable, and we learned a lot about the geology of Iceland and the growth and decline of glaciers.

Great experience, great guide. Guide drove several hundred meters after a lost glove. Nice with the good overalls, which were inclusive. An unforgettable experience!

I’ve have enjoyed driving and the view from the top.
