Unlike the Golden Circle / South Iceland tours, with is more hardcore. The Snæfellsnes Peninsula is much more isolated, but just as amazing. Our tour was in a mini coach instead of a classic coach, but that was ideal to venture off the more classical tourist spots. Djúpalónssandur beach was my personal highlight, say it quietly but I think it's more impressive than the more famous 'black beach' near Vík. This is very much a full day tour, so don't have dinner plans afterwards; instead enjoy this less ventured area of an amazing country.

The Snaefellsness day tour was amazing! We had a wonderful driver/tour guide who regaled us with anecdotes, history, and stories about places we passed and the stops we made. It was a very full day, with us leaving at 9 am and returning to the city around 9 pm. Our driver coordinated a special lunch at a great restaurant that everyone enjoyed.

Such a great tour. Even although the bus broke and we needed to wait for nearly 2 hours for a new one. But with the right spirit within the group and the amazing guide Ómar this was just a longer unexpected stop in the middle of nowhere. Ómar made it even possible to see all planned stops during the tour and organised a shorter but perfect lunch break for everyone. The day was longer than expected but worth it! Thank you for that! Highly recommended and Ómar is a really authentic and nice local guide!
