Snæfellsjökull Top of the Diamond Snow-cat Tour

    Tour Operator: Snæfellsnes Excursions     3 hours     Travel method: Bus     Region: West

Join us on a fantastic snow-cat sightseeing tour of Snæfellsjökull. 

We start the tour from the foot of Snæfellsjökull glacier but you can add an optional pick up from our office in Grundarfjörður if you wish. 

 At the foot of the majestic Snæfellsjökull, our snow-cat will be waiting for you, to take you up to the top of Snæfellsjökull, the top of the diamond. 

Snæfellsjökull rises 1446 meters above sea level and it is mostly famous because it is here that Jules Verne set a passage leading to the center of the Earth in his well-known over Journey to the Center of the Earth. The mountain is believed to have some special energy and it is considered one of the Earth-s seven sources of spiritual energy. Whether you believe this or not, our sightseeing snow-cat tour will give you a chance to see this spectacular glacier from up close, for an unforgettable experience. 

As we drive up the mountain, we will make some stops for you to enjoy the views, step on the glacier, and take some amazing pictures. 

Please keep in mind this is not a glacier hike but mostly a sightseeing tour during which you will be on a small bus and on a snow-cat. 

The views from the glacier and how high up we will go will depend on the weather conditions. 

Please wear warm waterproof clothes as we will be spending some time on a glacier so it can get quite cold even in the summer.
