10. Reykjavik: Day Trip to Snaefellsnes Peninsula with Photos
Experience Iceland in miniature form as they call this the peninsula with everything- glaciers, volcanos, fishing villages, sea stacks, waterfalls and the famous Kirkjufell Mountain. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel in Reykjavík and teach you the history of the land of ice and fire as you make your way northwest towards Snaefellsnes peninsula. Our first stop is the Black Church- Búðakirkja, a beautiful church standing in the middle of an ancient lava field with a history dating back centuries. From there, we head to the famous Arnarstapi fishing village, famous for its photogenic coastline, sea stacks, and town. Just down the road from Arnarstapi, we will come to a massive photogenic castle like formation called Lóndranger where you will truly feel small in such a powerful landscape. Entering into Snæfellsjokull National Park, you will experience what it’s like to be surrounded by an extinct volcano system and will have the opportunity to stand on one at Saxhóll Crater. After a lunch break in one of the small villages, we will head to the iconic Kirkjufell mountain and waterfall for sunset to enjoy one of the most magical places in all of Iceland. The day ends as we drive back towards Reykjavík after sunset, hopefully encountering some northern lights along the way. Your guide will drop you off at your hotel to end your magical day in miniature Iceland.
