For those of you looking for a scenic view in which to immerse your imagination, visiting the Myrdalsjokull glacier will be a tour to cherish. Myrdalsjokull covers a known volcano called Katla. It’s located in the South of Iceland and therefore, a perfect opportunity to visit the attractions of the South Coast. There are so many things in south Iceland to take your mind off all the urban noise.
The tour starts with a short safety briefing and gearing up at the main base. Then we ride a glacier truck up the mountain towards the glacier, where the snowmobiles are kept. From here, we enjoy a snowmobile ride that takes us up to the top of the glacier for the best scenic views of the South of Iceland. The Myrdalsjokull glacier adventure will give you the opportunity to take photographs and film all the beautiful scenery and the natural entities around the ice cap. South Iceland is a spectacular view when viewed from below, but a more genuine experience is felt at the top.
Myrdalsjokull is located in the south of Iceland, just off the coast. The South Coast is a very popular destination for travelers as it has multiple beautiful natural attractions including multiple waterfalls and black sand beaches, so if you will choose the tour with a pick-up from Reykjavik we will visit the famous South Cost waterfalls: Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. This makes it a perfect tour for anyone looking for some adventure on their day of sightseeing.
Note: We do not require previous experience to join on the tour, it's a fun and easy tour. However, the driver of the snowmobile will need to have a valid driver’s license.
Meeting on Location point: The base camp is located 9 km east of Skógar and 23 km west of Vík. Please take road #222 and drive roughly 1.2 km to reach the base camp.
Pick up from Reykjavik: the pick-ups start 30 min before your tour's departure time. Please be ready at your chosen bus stop in time.
