Snowmobiles are specialized winter travel vehicles that both look and operate like motorized sleds. They are able to move at high speeds over Ice and snow while also giving enough grip and traction that the driver can be in control of the vehicle.
The creation of the modern snowmobile is not attributed to any one particular individual. Rather the devices were slowly built and improved upon over time as advances in engine technology and propulsion were developed giving it a development cycle similar to that of cars or planes. Today the snowmobile is widely used not only as a transportation tool in icy regions but also as a recreational tool for both sport and hobbyists alike.

Although Iceland certainly has plenty of arts and cultural attractions, those who visit the country are generally in search of an adrenaline filled holiday. Iceland is well known for its natural beauty, ancient landscapes, volcanos, waterfalls, and glaciers. Traveling by tour bus will only get you so far, and for the rest of the time you are touring the country, you are likely to do so either on foot, on horseback, or on the back of a snowmobile.
The country is considered to be one of the best holiday destinations in the world for those looking for a thrill. Guests can enjoy an immense range of activities, some of which you wouldn’t expect from a country of this kind. Apart from lazy days spent hiking or on horseback, guests can also look forward to climbing up glaciers for that perfect photo opportunity, exploring the land with an all-terrain vehicle, going diving between tectonic plates, or walking out into the snow and gazing up at the dazzling Northern Lights. But riding on a snowmobile up to the top of one of the biggest glaciers in all of Europe is without a doubt one of the most exciting adventures. When in Iceland, this action packed trip is an absolute must!
Getting to the top of the glacier, and being surrounded by only snow, ice and mountains is an unforgettable trip that no one should pass up on. The feeling of walking in the clouds is truly a once in a lifetime experience.
