SNOWMOBILE

In an Icelandic environment, hospitality is not only a noble gesture
- it is a necessity and an important part of safe travel.

HOSPITALITY IS IN OUR DNA

Volcano by Snowmobile – Snow06

Across Katla volcanic caldera to Fimmvörðuháls and Magni and Móði volcanic craters.Fimmvörðuháls is an 1100 m. mountain ridge between the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull (1666 m) and Mýrdalsjökull (1510 m). The raw terrain on the ridge is built up by volcanic activity and carved down by the glacier ice. Before the volcanic eruption in Eyjafjallajökull, a smaller one happened on Fimmvörðuháls. Magni and Móði are the two new craters that formed in the eruption in 2010. At the meeting point, our main base at Ytri-Sólheimar 1, you’ll get dressed up in an insulated winter over-all and after a short briefing we step into our super-jeeps and drive up the mountain to the snowmobile base. Once participants have had a short teaching how to operate the snowmobiles and the guides been through the safety procedures we push the throttle and ride to the top of Mýrdalsjökull glacier. Under the glacier lies the famous and very active volcano Katla. We cross the volcanic caldera on top of 750 meters thick ice, reaching altitude above 1500 meters. We head west and down to the Fimmvörðuháls where we have the opportunity to walk up to the top of the new mountains which are still warm. In the tour you will get stunning photo opportunities to remind you of probably your best day in the wild and pure Iceland. Please note: The tour is highly dependent on weather and driving conditions on the glacier. To operate the snowmobiles a valid driver license is required.
