Tour itinerary

The tour starts from our base, Gljúfrabúi by Road 249. After a short briefing where your guide takes you through safety procedures we put on a snow suit and helmet (gloves and a mask are also provided) and hop into our modified super jeep. We then drive towards Eyjafjallajökull and up it’s slopes, onto the glacier and to the base where we keep our snowmobiles.

The duration of the tour varies from season to season since we drive up to the ever changing snow-line to reach our 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 we need to drive higher to reach the snow-line, and then the tour can take up to 4 hours.
