Full description
Discover an oasis of tranquility in the west of Iceland and journey back to the land of myriad secrets and ancient landscapes. Make your way to the dramatic Snæfellsnes Peninsula, where mangled lava fields reveal the stresses and destruction the land once endured. Marvel at volcanic rocks of unimaginable shapes as they flare up in twisted forms from the earth. Take a walk beside the jagged cliffs of Arnarstapi and see the beautiful arcs of Hellnar, where pillars of basalt slowly ascend from the unforgiving sea. Take in the stunning backdrop of the summit of the Snæfellsjökull glacier. Journey along roads less traveled to find beaches of lava and smooth volcanic rock at Djupalónssandur. End on the north side of the peninsula at the high mountain of Kirkjufell. Then, journey back to Reykjavik with a new sense of calm and positive energy. Along the way, benefit from the extensive knowledge and experience of the guides. They will share not only the must-see sites but local knowledge, great stories and personal recommendations to make the most of your time in Iceland.

It was one of the best experiences ever! We had great guides in Luis and Armando. Those guys are hilarious, keep the mood light and make it easy even for the nervous to take on the activity confidently. Would certainly recommend these guys as your guides. Thank you Adventure Vikings for making this experience very special.

The tour was excellent. David, our tour guide, was very informative. Besides his extensive knowledge of Iceland's history, he also gave some tips for exploring Snaefellsnes. The black beach was gorgeous, and it was different from the other black beach in Vik. We are glad we booked this trip. I thought it was well organized. David chose a restaurant with really fresh cod, and we really enjoyed our lunch there. We have several opportunities to use the restroom as well as plenty of time to enjoy the scenery. I recommend this tour. Despite the long travel time, the experience was worth it. David mingled with all of us. It's hard to remember his last name, but he's an excellent tour guide and an original from the UK. Our tour was made even more enjoyable by the beautiful weather that day!

Our guide who went by the nickname “Iceman” was a wonderful guide. He was very knowledgeable about the geology and provided excellent information about the landscapes and the history of the area. He made the tour special by stopping by places that weren’t listed on itinerary and gave us plenty of time to explore the stops. Having a great tour guide makes the experience better and we were so lucky to have him as our guide. The tour is definitely worth going on as you will see another side of the country.
