Reykjavik: Snaefellsnes Peninsula and Kirkjufell Day Trip

Reykjavik: Snaefellsnes Peninsula and Kirkjufell Day Trip

Visit the Snaefellsnes Peninsula on this guided day trip from Reykjavik. See what Iceland has to offer on one trip including the Berserkjahraun lava fields, Snaefellsjokull volcano, and Kirkjufell mountain. Learn about local legends and see a seal colony. Begin your trip in the local town of Borgarnes. Grab some snacks before heading to the peninsula and try to catch a peak of the ice-capped Snaefellsjokull stratovolcano. Arrive at the Berserkjahraun lava field, and learn the origin of its name. Next, head to Kirkjufell, famously known for its role on the "Game of Thrones" television show, and for being the most-photographed mountain in the entire country. Visit the neighboring waterfall, and be swept away by the magic. Then climb the staircase to the top of Saxholl (visited only from March – November), a 100-meter-high volcanic crater. Reach the top and be rewarded by the stunning views of this 3000-year-old feat of nature. Learn local legends and the history of strong Icelandic ancestry. Venture into the uninhabited settlement of Djupalonssandur, and test your strength as local men used to on the beach. Head to the fishing village of Arnarstapi and witness the beautifully eroded cliffs and the sculpture of Barour Snaefellsas. Finally, discover a more in-depth understanding of Icelandic history at Budakirkja, or the "Black Church." View historical artifacts from the 19th century. Continue to the enchanting golden-colored beach of Ytri-Tunga (only from March - November). Witness a huge seal colony, laying on the rocks and enjoying the sun.

I chose the bus trip as an activity to do where I could sit back and enjoy the drive. The activity required us to pick a bus stop. The vehicle/bus sat 19 people. It had free WiFi (which did cut out at some points but it worked well overall). There were 5 rows of four seats, with an aisle in the middle making a configuration of 3 seats on one side and a single seat on a window. The last row was a row of four. The vehicle was comfortable and had storage above the seats. My elderly relative came with us to enjoy the ride and stayed on the vehicle at most stops. I do not think this would be good for wheelchair users who cannot get up the stairs on their own, but for someone who wants to see some sights from a bus, it worked well. The driver was funny. We stopped for food and the sights were great. He gave us great information about Iceland, recommendations and history.

What a great tour of the Western part of Iceland. Our tour guide Alex was so knowledgeable, talking through history, folklore of all that we passed. What made it extra special was Alex showed us the best places to take pictures to make the most of the scenery. Alex made effort to fit in extra places that were not listed. So very grateful. Highly recommend this tour if you are visiting.

Highly recommended. We were 4 for this tour, my daughters 11 and 13 yo. We enjoyed every seesight and our guide explained all the way the places we visited. No restaurants, so make sure to bring your picnic to lunch and snack during the trip.

Lovely tour to so many amazing places! I enjoyed that our guide Michael made sure everyone is happy with the time schedule and we even had an additional stop to greet some Icelandic horses along the way.

Excellent Guide, Very interactive with all guests, very kind with always smile, answer all questions we had. Had a great time. Thank you
