About the tour

We begin this journey, starting in Reykjavik, and head towards the breathtaking glacier, Solheimajokull. After getting dressed in the proper clothing and equipment, we will drive to the base camp where your snowmobile journey begins.

After a safety briefing and short training, you’re ready to go. It’s an exhilarating ride as we make our way along the top of the glacier, riding over glacial rifts and bumps. Be sure to take a moment and snap some wonderful and unforgettable photos.

After the hours snowmobile journey we will make our way back to Reykjavik. On the way back we stop at the breathtaking waterfalls of Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss. Be sure to watch out the window at the beautiful landscape and seaside.

Our first stop is Skogafoss. Be sure to catch this waterfall from two views, in front and above. Do you have what it takes to walk the 60 meters of stairs?

Back in the jeep we drive to Seljalandsfoss, the last stop before returning to Reykjavik. Here you can make your way up the steep staircase to catch a glimpse of what it looks like behind a waterfall. Feel the power as the water drops from the famous glacier, Eyjafjallajokull.
