Home to rivers and mountains

Our tour will begin when we all meet at the snowmobile base camp in the Trollaskagi Peninsula, also known as the Troll Peninsula. Trollaskagi is a renowned area of sublime natural beauty, home to many waterfalls and rivers and the backyard to some of the tallest mountains in Iceland. The ice caps topping the mountains are minuscule compared to some of the other glaciers in Iceland, however, that doesn’t make gliding across them on a snowmobile any less exciting!  

Once at the base camp, our expert glacier and snowmobile guide will provide you all with the necessary equipment to ride the snowmobile. On top of shielding overalls, warm gloves, footwear, and a helmet, your guide will also demonstrate how to handle a snowmobile.

Your safety is our number one priority, therefore, a quick safety briefing will follow. Don’t worry if you have never ridden a snowmobile before. They are extremely easy to operate and with the supervision of our expert guide, you will feel completely in control of your experience.

Once everyone is ready, we’ll head towards the slopes of the peninsula. The last ice age shaped Trollskagi as it appears today, carving out rivers that never freeze. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of ice and snow for you to speed across during this exhilarating 3-hour snowmobile tour!

Our certified guide will be next to you at all times, sharing the history and formation of this mystical yet very tangible troll peninsula. He’ll also show all the secret, hidden spots and picture-worthy sceneries for you to soak in.

The Trollaskagi Peninsula is extremely overlooked by locals and tourists alike, leaving its borderless horizons for no one but you and a handful of others to feast on. This glacier snowmobile tour is ideal for those seeking an authentic adventure in the land of fire and ice.
