Our Snæfellsjökull Top of the Diamond Snow-cat Tour is a spectacular and unique sightseeing excursion that brings our visitors close to one of Iceland’s most spectacular and mystical glaciers, Snæfellsjökull.
Snæfellsjökull rises 1446 meters above sea level. This glacier-topped volcano is where Jules Verne set a passage leading to the center of the Earth in his popular novel Journey to the Center of the Earth and it is believed to be one of the Earth’s seven sources of spiritual energy.
The tour starts with a bus drive through a mountain pass to reach the foot of Snæfellsjökull glacier. There, we get on board our snow-cat to start our journey to the top of the glacier. The ride up is slow and we also try to make some stops on the way for everybody to enjoy the view and take pictures along the way. Once at the top, there is time to walk around before a faster descent with the snow-cat.
The excursions is always fascinating however please note that views from the glacier are naturally dependent upon local weather conditions at the given moment.
Remarks/requirements: Dress in warm clothes and according to local weather conditions with good footwear (closed toe recommended) with a rubber or non-slip sole. Hat and gloves. Bring camera.
