Yes, Iceland is a cold country so our glaciers are here all year around and we can go snowmobiling in every season.

We do not have weight restriction but participants need to be able to fit in our winter overalls. The largest size we have is 5XL. Same goes for the physical level, the tour is listed as a moderate level and therefore anyone in average physical condition should be able to complete the tour without trouble.

We will provide you with an overall, a balaclava, goggles, gloves and a helmet.  

No, full drivers license is required to ride a snowmobile.

First and foremost warm clothing.

Upper body: Thermal shirt and a fleece or a thick sweater over.

Lower body: Warm pants.
If you get easily cold, also thermals.

Shoes: It’s best to wear boots as it’s pretty cold on the glacier and they can get wet.

NOTE: You need to bring a lunch or some snacks. Lunch is not included in the tour.

Yes, if traveling solo you will need to purchase the single ride extra fee. 

The age limit is 8 years old, of course in company with a guardian.
