From Reykjavik: Snaefellsnes National Park - Small Group

From Reykjavik: Snaefellsnes National Park - Small Group

Spend the day in Snæfellsnes National Park, described as “Iceland in Miniature,” on a full-day tour from Reykjavik. Following your transfer from the city center, travel along the coast of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula and Snæfellsnes Glacier, enjoying mountain scenery on one side, and the unique Breiðafjörður beach on the other. Locals call it the "Golden Beach" as it is one of the only beaches in Iceland that is not made of black sand. Pass small towns and fishing villages, including the hamlets of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, and see spectacular birds nesting in cliffs by the sea. Look out for other wildlife, including - if you are lucky - seals! End in the center of the park at the mighty Snæfellsjökull volcano glacier, made famous by Jules Verne in “Journey to the Center of the Earth.” On the north side of the peninsula you will see the famous church-shaped Kirkjufell Mountain, with the nearby waterfall of Kirkjufellfoss.

From Reykjavík: 3-Day Tour of the Wild Westfjords

From Reykjavík: 3-Day Tour of the Wild Westfjords

Enjoy the experience of a lifetime on this 3-day guided tour of the wild Westfjords, departing from Reykjavík. You’ll see the breathtaking beauty of one of the most unspoiled areas of Iceland, filled with exciting places to visit, where nature reigns supreme! Day 1 Embark on your Westfjords adventure with a pick-up in the capital and a scenic drive to Borgarnes. Along the way, we'll visit Eiriksstaðir, the Viking heritage museum, where you can explore the turf-roofed house that was once home to Eirik the Red and his son Leif the Lucky. As we continue, you'll be treated to breathtaking views of the coastal cliffs at Breiðafjörður, the gateway to the Westfjords. Countless fjords await you on this road trip, with plenty of opportunities to stop and take in the magnificent scenery. One of the highlights will be the Vatnsfjörður Natural Reserve, home to Þingmanná Waterfalls and a stunning canyon. Another stop will be at Birkimel Bay with its sandy beach, where you can experience (optional) the Krosslaug Swimming Pool - a true Icelandic gem. This natural pool, run by the local Youth Association, offers a chance to relax and soak in warm geothermal waters while enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Crossing the towering Kleifaheiði mountain range, you'll be amazed by the 5-meter-high stone statue called Kleifabúi, a testament to the dedication of the engineers who built the mountain road. Day 2 Enjoy incredible Westfjord vistas as you explore the towering cliffs at Látrabjarg, a perfect place for bird spotting. Look out for the Garðar shipwreck on the way! This is the westernmost point in Iceland, where thousands of seabirds (including puffins!) make their way every summer. Take a stroll on the multicolored sands of Rauðisandur, and enjoy views of Fossfjörður waterfall and the iconic “A-House.” Then, gaze in wonder at Dynjandi, the wedding cake-shaped cascade with its seven-step “waterfall ladder.” Finish your second day with a great night out in Ísafjörður, the capital of the Westfjords. Day 3 The day start with visit at the top of Bolafjall (638m) and walk on the skywalk viewing platform build over steep cliffs. Then, we will stop at charming Ósvör Fishing Village (collection of turf-roofed buildings) and Óshólaviti Lighthouse. Then it is time to start the drive via the Seven Fjords Road. The road hugs the coastline and offers uninterrupted views of fjords, mountains, and glaciers in all directions. You’ll enjoy unforgettable views wherever you look as the road traces its way up and down seven breathtaking fjords. Arctic foxes roam this area, so keep a close eye out for the only native land mammal in Iceland here! If you won´t have luck, you can still meet them at Arctic Fox Center and contribute to their protection. There will also be a stop at Hvitanes, one of the most accessible places to spot seals in the Westfjords, so we’ll take a look at these charming creatures here. Last stop will be by colorful Grabrok Volcanic Craters.

Gummi was an exceptional guide. He is a very engaging storyteller who is knowledgeable and informative. We loved hearing his tales of Icelandic folklore. The tour itself, was breathtaking. Gummi knew where the best locations were for wildlife viewing. This tour exceeded our expectations. We were captivated by the beauty of Iceland and would highly recommend Gummi as a guide.

A simply fantastic tour, Ian was an amazing guide:a born storyteller and an extremely kind person. My additional gratitude for managing to return my lost phone so quickly and in spite of the long day drive! I recommend this tour wholeheartedly

It was really a beautiful day. Our guide was really very kind, pleasant, and keen to share with us his knowledge of this country he loves, Iceland. He knew the region very well. I recommend!

Loved it, super professional guide (Halldor) that made the experience even more interesting. Would highly recommend

All was excellent. Itinerary, guide Jonas, wheather, vidíte pláčem. Rezonance.
