Snowmobile Tours


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.

Whizz across the stunning snowcaps of Vatnajökull glacier, the largest glacier in Europe, on a snowmobile with this thrilling sub-arctic adventure. If you want an authentic glacier experience in southeast Iceland, you don’t want to miss this tour.

Aside from the great adventure, you will expose yourself to amazing views across the gleaming surface of the ice and snow, as well as the eastern and southern highlands of Iceland.

You will stop halfway through your adventure to take photos. Our guides are very informative and entertaining and they will tell you facts about the area, stories from the community, fairytales and everything you would like to know. Don’t be shy to ask them questions about anything that comes to mind!

At base camp, Glacier Journey provides overalls and helmets for the tour. Don’t worry, you don’t need any experience, as snowmobiles are very easy to operate and we will show you how they work. Then, it’s time to mount your snowmobile and set off.

Snowmobile tours are available from March – October.
