Arcanum Glacier tours

Arcanum Glacier Tours is a qualified glacier tour operator with almost twenty years of experience in taking customers up on  the magnificent glaciers Mýrdalsjökull and Sólheimajökull.  Under Mýrdalsjökull glacier the volcano Katla lies dormant.  The glacier is the 4th largest in Iceland and covers about 600km2.  The ice is on average 250 meters thick.  

Arcanum main products are Snowmobile tours, Glacier walk tours  and ATV Quad bike tours. All the tours start at the Arcanum base camp where we fit you with the relevant gear and go over safety instructions.  
The Snowmobile tour is excellent for first time riders. Everything you need for a safe and comfortable ride is provided. Safety is a keyword  with Arcanum so  before we head upon the glacier we give you a short briefing.
When the visitbility is good, the view from the top of the glacier is awsome and we allow some time for photography.   Departures:  Total 2 hours (1 hour snowmobile + 1 hour glacier truck transfer)
Glacier Walk is another tour which we are very proud of.  After we provide you with the necessary equipment and give a short lesson in icewalking, we start the tour.  The route goes over amazing terrain with crevasses, sink holes and ice rigdes.  Departures: 2 or 3 hours
