Eyjafjallajokull Snowmobiling

Snowmobiling on the World-Famous Eyjafjallajokull Volcano Glacier

An exciting adventure on the World-Famous Eyjafjallajokull Volcano Glacier - An experience of a lifetime!


The vast Eyjafjallajokull ice-cap hides a notorious secret beneath its icy depths: a massive volcano that captured the attention of the world when it erupted in 2010 and downed the majority of Europe’s air fleet. Since then it has become a popular tourist destination for adventure seekers who want an exhilarating experience that exemplifies the land of fire and ice. This tour will take you on a snowmobile ride on some of the breathtaking glacier outlets that are situated off the main body of the ice cap, offering adrenaline-pumping fun and areas of exquisite natural beauty. There is no better way to see this natural wonder than on the back of a snowmobile, alongside one of our friendly guides who will keep you safe and tell you everything that you need to know about the incredible things that you are seeing.

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, including helmets and snowsuits and give you a quick safety briefing. Then we will climb into one of our specially designed super jeeps, which will take us to the starting point for the snowmobile ride.

Once there we will get onto the snowmobiles for a heart-pumping experience that shows Iceland at its absolute best. As soon as we get onto the glacier, you will be struck by its size: a pristine expanse of snow dotted with rock formations and majestic ice sculptures. Then as we push deeper into this icy wilderness, we will start to see some of the most impressive views over South Iceland that can be found anywhere. It is an enthralling experience, replete with violent volcanoes, towering mountains oases of green, the deep blue Atlantic Ocean and much, much more.

While the snowmobiling is equally fun, as we glide across the powdery snow with ease. Our friendly guide will be constantly describing the natural phenomena that we are seeing and the things that cause them, along with the myths and legends that have come to define the area: there are rolling fields tended by Icelandic farmers, spellbinding places of jaw-dropping natural beauty and much, much more.

It is a tour for adventure seekers, who want to have a heart-pounding time on a legitimate natural wonder. We guarantee that you will want to bring your camera and immortalize the many incredible things that you are seeing and will treasure the memories that you create for the rest of your life. So, come and snowmobile with us on the very definition of the land of fire and ice.
