The famous glacier and volcano Eyjafjallajökull is in a short distance from Skálakot Manor Hotel. It is the perfect place for doing an adventure snowmobile tour. The Glacier Eyjafjallajökull is a small ice cap on the south coast of Iceland and underneath the ice is a volcano with the same name. The volcano erupted in 2010 and the ash from the eruption did affect the air traffic in Europe for a few days. The volcanic eruption lasted for around five weeks. Now the ice has covered the place where the volcanic eruption took place.
The glacier is a great place for doing a snowmobile tour. It is only about 15 min drive from our Hotel to the snowmobile base. There they will suit you up and drive with you up to the mountain towards the glacier to the snowmobile location. The drive is from 30 minutes to one hour depending on the condition on the mountain, but it is a fun ride in a super jeep.
From the snowmobile location, you will do one your snowmobiling on the glacier. It always depends on the condition on the glacier and the weather condition where they will take you. On a nice clear day, you will get amazing views over the south coast.
