THE MIDNIGHT SUN TOUR
Whizz across the stunning snowcaps of Vatnajökull glacier, the largest glacier in Europe on a snowmobile with this thrilling sub-arctic adventure. This tour should not be missed by those seeking an authentic glacier experience in southeast Iceland.
Snowmobiling is one of the most exhilarating excursions you can take in Iceland; the fresh winds rushing against you as you race over the glacier provide an adrenaline-pumping thrill.
Aside from the great adventure, you will expose yourself to amazing views across the gleaming surface of the ice and snow, and of the highlands, east and south of the country.
You will stop halfway through your adventure to take photos, our guides are very informative and entertaining; they will tell you facts about the area, stories from the community, fairytales and everything you would like to know, so please do not be shy to ask them questions about anything that comes to mind.
At base camp, you’ll change into the overalls and helmet provided, before you are given a safety briefing. Don’t worry, you don’t need any experience, as snowmobiles are very easy to operate. Then, it’s time to mount your snowmobile and set off.
This tour is open for a limited time only and only if the weather is good. This tour is not suitable for children.
