The Snæfellsnes Peninsula Tour is a unique opportunity to experience the beauty and tranquility of Icelandic nature

Driving north from Reykjavik through the Hvalfjordur tunnel and the small town of Borgarnes, we continue north until we reach Snæfellsnes peninsula and although this journey is quite long, around 2 hours, the scenery is very rewarding, and we will make a short comfort stop along the way.

Stretching out into the ocean directly west from Iceland, this peninsula has a bit of everything that you can find elsewhere in Iceland.Throughout much of our journey we will have views of the Snæfellsjokull glacier and will be surrounded by the natural beauty of high mountains and fjords. There are fabulous coastal roads and also surreal landscapes of lava fields and mountains offering an amazing array of geological features and vistas.

We spend the day exploring the coastline with visits to the tiny hamlet of Arnarstapi. There we will see stunning sea cliffs and during the summer season, nesting bird colonies. Along the coast we spend time exploring the black sand beaches and lava stacks at Djupalon. We will stop at one of the small fishing villages hiding in sheltered bays surrounded by mountains and we will visit the famous Kirkjufell mountain and the pretty waterfall of Kirkjufellsfoss.

Much of the attraction of Snæfellsnes lies in the natural history of the area and we may be lucky enough to see seals, large bird colonies and possibly even whales from the shoreline, as much of the day is spent on the coast. As a result, the day might include other short stops depending upon what we come across in the way of wildlife, on weather, road conditions and time constraints. These extra stops will be at the discretion of your guide on the day, but having this flexibility makes the tour exciting and slightly different each time.

Lunch is not included but there will be opportunities to purchase something to eat along the way.
