Reykjavik: Small-Group Snæfellsnes Day Trip

Reykjavik: Small-Group Snæfellsnes Day Trip

Spend the day in Snæfellsnes National Park, often described as “Iceland in Miniature” for its diverse scenery. Travel in a group of no more than 19 people for your comfort and maximum personal attention. Depart Reykjavik and get your first view of Snæfellsjökull volcano on the way to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. Marvel at the highest peak in the area, often visible from the capital on clear days. Continue to the charming farm of Ytri-Tunga, where the nearby beach is home to a popular seal colony. Look at their cute faces as they sunbathe and play in the surf. Discover the coastal areas and natural harbor of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, where beautiful rock formations, spotted with green-and-yellow moss, dot the coastline. Take a stroll along the cliffs to get some refreshing sea air. Next, look at the 2 black basalt columns of Lóndrangar, so tall that they can be seen from the road. Go to the black beach of Djúpalónssandur, where the air is filled with the sound of birds circling the cliffs and the ocean waves hitting the sand. Move on to the curious smooth stones of Djúpalónssandur. Known as “lifting stones,” they were used to measure the strength of fishermen who worked and lived along the coast.  The largest, called "Fullsterkur" (“Full-Strength”) weighs 154 kilograms (340 pounds) and you should lift it with your knees so that you don’t hurt your back. The second is known as "Hálfsterkur" (“Half-Strength”) and weighs 100 kilograms (220 pounds), while the third, called "Hálfdrættingur" (“Weakling”), weighs 54 kilograms (119 pounds). If you could only lift the 23-kilogram (50-pound) stone called "Amlóði" ("Useless”), then you were considered the shame of your village. Test your strength! End this fascinating day trip with a visit to Kirkjufell Mountain. See the mountain rise from the green hills, surrounded by trickling rivers. This is one of the most popular photography spots in Iceland, so be sure to get a picture for your own collection.

Snæfellsnes: Small-Group Hidden Treasures of The West Tour

Snæfellsnes: Small-Group Hidden Treasures of The West Tour

On the way to Snæfellsnes Peninsula, we will pass a wonderful little town called Borgarnes. The journey to this place is absolutely phenomenal – we will drive through a fjord and many scenic mountains. Borgarnes was one of the first places Norwegian Vikings settled when they arrived in Iceland. Our first stop in Snæfellsnes will be a heavenly place for animal lovers – a place where the wild seals live. Ytri-Tunga is a sandy beach that has a little secret hidden away down by the sea, behind the farmhouses… a seal colony! Seals love to spend their time on the rocks of this beautiful beach. They are friendly and curious and will climb up on the rocks for you to spot them from a distance. In the old days seals used to be killed for food or for fashion, however nowadays Icelanders see seals as a beautiful addition to the culture and encourage visitors to come and visit them as well. Our next stop will be an old village located in the middle of huge lava fields – Búðir. In the old times the village used to be called Hraunhofn, which meant ‘“The Harbor of Lava” in Icelandic. Nowadays, in the once thriving town, the only standing building is a tiny wooden black church called Búðakirkja – better known as Black Church of Búdir. Also a modern Hotel Búðir has been recently built. Our next stop is a small fishing village at the bottom of a mountain, with one of the most beautiful harbors in the country. This tiny fishing village has picturesque coastal cliffs which derived from glowing magma, hit by the wild waves of the Atlantic. Thousands of years later, erosion has formed beautiful stone arches and a remarkable marine geyser. We will visit the coastline as we share some extremely fascinating stories about Bárður, the half-man half-troll, and his stories in the area. Afterwards we will stop at a beautiful Gatklettur, also known as “Hellnar Arch”. Gatklettur is a beautiful naturally formed stone arch. Gatklettur is a spectacular place for photographers, and videographers. Djúpalónssandur is a striking black sand beach on Iceland's Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Its volcanic pebble shoreline, shipwreck remains, and ancient lifting stones create a captivating and mysterious atmosphere. Nearby Dritvík Cove offers breathtaking views and is a haven for birdwatchers. Djúpalónssandur is a place where Iceland's coastal beauty and rich history come together. The Lóndrangar are a pair of gigantic (75-meter high) basalt pinnacles, which are remains from a volcanic crater from ten of thousands of years ago. They can be seen emerging over the entire southern coastline. In the area we might find a huge variety of seabirds, northern fulmars and Iceland’s beloved puffins. We will end our day with Kirkjufell - the most famous mountain in Iceland, which was featured multiple times on Game of Thrones. At the bottom of the mountain, you will find a lake which reflects a perfect mirror image of Kirkjufell.

The day trip filled my bucket list. It was raining most of the time, but I don’t mind it all since it add drama to my pictures. Our tour guide Monica was the best! She had prepared music and visual aids to go with the trip. She introduces the local's songs. She made sure we received all the information about Iceland. She’s the only one I ever met as a tour guide that prepared extra to meet the needs of the tourist 😊. Overall I am happy with the trip 😊. Thank you 😊.

It was a really wonderful day with lots of great places! Also thanks to our great guide Alain, who took such good care of his guests and made the trip an absolute highlight with his knowledge and stories. The trip is really recommended!

Fantastic experience not to be missed, highly recommended, the driver and guide Addie were very attentive and patient! The cold air in the bus was not appreciated for half the journey

My parents and I had a great time on the Snaefellsnes peninsula tour with Alain. All of the stops were great and his interesting stories made the time fly by. Thanks for a great tour.

Sigi is unique, funny, engaging and I learned a lot about Iceland through his stories. So far the best day trip I took with an agency. 👍
