Snowmobiling on glaciers is a once-in-a-lifetime experience which is becoming an increasingly popular activity. Travellers can choose between being a passenger or driver.
Snowcat tours are also available. Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe, is the country's main snowmobiling destination, offering the greatest choice of routes and sights.
Package tours are available, including either flights from Reykjavík to Höfn in southeast Iceland, or a coach trip to the glacier. Boat cruises amongst the icebergs in the glacial lagoon, Jökulsárlón, may be included in the same tour. Other glacier tour operators arrange trips to the glaciers Mýrdalsjokull in the south, Langjökull near the western interior and Snæfellsjökull on the western tip of the Snæfellsnes peninsula.
Glacier touring involves a certain amount of risk. People on the tour are therefore advised to follow the guides' instructions at every moment.
