  • From Reykjavik: Snæfellsnes Peninsula Full-Day Tour

    1. From Reykjavik: Snæfellsnes Peninsula Full-Day Tour

    Depart Reykjavik and head to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula to experience Iceland's diverse natural beauty in a single area. Take in the dramatic landscape of volcanic peaks, sea cliffs, golden beaches and sparkling fjords. Visit charming fishing villages, such as Grundarfjordur, Arnarstapi and Hellnar. Admire the spectacular mountains and volcanic craters, including Kirkjufell and Ljósufjöll. Cast your eyes on the black sand beach at Djúpalónssandur, see the majestic glacier of Snæfellsjökull. Tour at a leisurely pace and experience the magnificent scenery of the peninsula at ease. The 10-hour tour takes in a variety of landscapes in a compact region, immortalized by Jules Verne in his book, "Journey to the Centre of the Earth." 

    This was a fantastic tour. You spend a lot of time on the road but you get to see so much in just one day. The landscapes are awe-inspiring as are the tales that accompany them. Peter, the guide, told us histories, myths, and legends along the way. Mount Kirkjufell is breathtaking. My best photos of the trip came from this place.

Moreover, following Howser recomendation we ate a really tasty cod for a good price. Excellent day and tour!!! 100% recomendable

The weather was not the best, but our guide made sure to show us much more than the trip promised and adapted the day to the weather in the finest way.
