Amazing tour to our spectacular crown jewel of Iceland “Snæfellsjökull”
We offer tours on the Snæfellsjökull glacier in a Snow Track Buggy. The glacier rises 1446 meters above sea level. The mountain is one of the most famous sites in Iceland, primarily due to Jules Verne’s novel “Journey to the Center of the Earth”, in which an entrance to a passage leading to the center of the earth is found on Snæfellsjökull. It is said that the glacier has a mystical power and is one of the eight points of power in the world.
The tour starts at Arnarstapi (Samkomuhúsið) where we go on a 4×4 truck and drive to the root of the glacier, there we go on the Snow Track Buggy and off we go to the top of the glacier.
These are always fascinating excursions, but it is important for travelers to realize that views from the glacier are naturally dependent upon local weather conditions at the given moment.
For the excursions, it is very important to bundle up in warm clothes, good shoes, hat and gloves.
