1 hour Snowmobile Tour from Lake Mývatn
Driving a snowmobile through the winter wonderland of Lake Myvatn gives you sights not everyone get to experience. Standing in the middle of the lake admiring the amazing volcanic landscape and the beautiful nature surrounding you. Or driving through the volcanic area of Krafla, seeing the craters and fissures of this volcanic and active place. It is an experience of a lifetime!
Get the thrill of riding a snowmobile! It is a short tour exploring the area of Lake Myvatn. You can enjoy magnificent view of the surrounding mountains from the lake or the amazing views of Krafla Volcano. With a snowmobile you can explore the Icelandic nature during the winter months in a different way. Take an exciting adventure on our snowmobiles out on the frozen Lake Mývatn or travel deep into the highlands with one of our guides.
Where we run our tours depends on snow layers. At the beginning of the season we operate our tour in Krafla. There we get the first snows of the season to safely drive snowmobiles. As soon as the ice on Lake Myvatn is safe, we move our gear to Sel Hótel and operate from there until springtime we move back to Krafla to finish the season. In a normal year we run our tour from November until May.
Kids are welcome on our tours as passengers, they get 50% off.
