2. Vik: Mýrdalsjökull Snowmobile Adventure
Go on a glacier snowmobiling ride on the majestic Mýrdalsjökull Glacier, an ice cap to the north of Vik, while enjoying panoramic views of the South Coast.
Begin your tour at the Mýrdalsjökull Base Camp. Meet your guide and get dressed up in an insulated cover-all. Then, step aboard the glacier truck, specially modified to climb the steep mountain road leading up to the edge of the glacier.
Once you reach the snowmobiles, get a briefing from the guide on how to safely operate the gear, before starting the ride. Be safely led through the crevassed ice field of Mýrdalsjökull.
Upon making it to the top of the ice cap, step off the snowmobiles to admire the amazing views of Iceland's South Coast. Below your feet rests the giant Katla Volcano, hidden beneath the ice cap.
After an hour-long ride, head back to the Base Camp. Make sure not to forget your camera to savor the sheer magnitude of the glacier.
