Arcanum Glacier Tours

Arcanum has been serving locals and tourist for 20 years. Their cozy cabin is situated at the foot of the Myrdalsjökull glacier. These full package tours are costly but I found that they were worth it. The price includes the hour and a half snowmobile tour, insulated coverall, helmet, face mask and English speaking tour guide. Myrdalsjökullis is the fourth largest glacier in Iceland and experiences three earthquakes per day. When driving to a flat surface of the glacier where we found our snowmobiles waiting we were informed by our tour guide Börn that we should, in fact, be scared.  However, someone was close by monitoring the actions. We couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide. Born was quite patient with my godsister Alexis and me as it was our first time riding.  He gave us plenty of opportunities to stop for a break, ask questions and take pictures. If you’re in Reykjavik and interested in snowmobiling, ATV rides, a glacier walk or anything of the sort I suggest you entrust that adventure to Arcanum.
