Departure from SAMKOMUHÚSIÐ ARNARSTAPA
This great tour takes about 3 hours. We take off from Arnarstapi in offroad bus and drive to the root of the glacier, that is a beautiful path with historical places on the way.
Snowcat will then take you to the top of the Glacier, Snæfellsjökull. 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.
These are always fascinating excursions with amazing view.
It is important for travelers to realize that views from the glacier are naturally dependent upon local weather conditions at the given moment.
Due to varying weather conditions in the area, we reserve the right to cancel the trip on short notice
What to bring
For the excursions, it is very important to bundle up in warm clothes, good shoes, hat and gloves.
