Tour Description

We will meet at Flatey – a dairy farm located 38km west of Höfn.  While at the base camp, we will prepare you for the tour – we will provide overalls and helmets. Before starting the unforgettable drive up on the glacier, we will demonstrate how to use the snowmobiles, and have a quick safety talk about what to do; and about what not to do on a glacier. Snowmobiles are easy to operate, therefore it does not matter whether you have driven one before.  Once everyone is ready, we will take off to an exciting adventure – to experience phenomenal views over a mighty glacier and its snow- and ice-covered surface. Half way through the tour, we will stop in an extremely beautiful and peaceful area, where we will be able to take some photos. If the weather is nice, we will be able to see the most breathtaking views – the Icelandic highlands.

 

Wish you a magnificent journey, filled with unforgettable memories!

Solo rider

The standard version of our snowmobile tour has two persons riding together on a snowmobile. If you would prefer to ride alone you can choose the solo rider option.

However, if you are travelling solo or in a group of odd numbers 1, 3, 5, etc., you need to book at least one solo rider, as we do not pair you with another solo traveler.

When choosing the solo rider option you would always have to combine that with an adult ticket. As an example, if there’s a booking for 3 adults you would have to book 3 adult tickets + 1 solo rider.
