Zooming, whooshing, flying through the powdery, pillowy snow and gazing out onto the arctic white desert: nothing says Icelandic adventure like hurtling over a glacier on a snowmobile. Holding down the throttle and feeling that rumble of the engine beneath you, you’ll be hooked and you’ll need that adrenaline, just to keep you warm. This is Icelandic wilderness at its most harsh and glorious, and this is one of the most exciting ways to see it.
