Full description
This tour is the perfect length of time for 'first-time riders' and individuals looking for a scenic, fun-ride, exploring and experiencing the wilderness, the glacier and the breathtaking views over south Iceland. In perfect conditions the jaw dropping view includes Westman Islands, the whole south coast all the way to Ingólfsfjall and even a big part of the highlands!

The tour starts from the base, Gljúfrabúi by Road 249. After a short briefing where your guide takes you through safety procedures you dress up in a snowsuit and helmet and hop into a modified Super Jeep. You then drive towards Eyjafjallajökull and up it's slopes, onto the glacier base where the snowmobiles are kept. 

The duration of the tour varies from season to season since you drive up to the ever-changing snow-line to reach the snowmobiles but the snowmobiling itself is about 1 hour. 
In winter time it is easier to reach snow so the tour is about 2 hours, but in the summer time you need to drive higher to reach the snow-line, then the tour can take up to 4 hours.
