Located on the west coast of Iceland, Snæfellsnes peninsula has been referred to as ‘Iceland in Miniature’ as it is home to so many of the nation's sights. The area is also just the 4th place in the world to be awarded a Green Globe 21 certification for environmental sustainability.
Our guide to Snæfellsnes National Park
This tour takes you west from Reykjavik on a scenic route to Borgarfjörður and the village of Borgarnes where a short stop will be made for refreshments.
Shortly after entering Snæfellsnes peninsula, by Ytri-Tunga Farm, it's time for some wildlife spotting at a beach which is home to a seal colony and variety of sea birds.
Next up is a visit to the idyllic Arnarstapi village where you‘ll take a walk through extraordinary landscape along the precipitous shoreline to the small village of Hellnar where a brake will be made for lunch.
After lunch the tour continues to Djúpalónssandur, a tranquil, black-pebbled beach that offers beautiful views out to the sea and fascinating history that lies in the Snæfellsjökull National Park, close to where Jules Verne located his entrance for the “Journey to the Centre of the Earth”.
Leaving Djúpalónssandur you‘ll travel past striking landscapes to the north coast of Snæfellsnes peninsula to Grundarfjordur fishing village.
Surrounded by exceptionally beautiful mountains Grundarfjörður is home to one of the peninsula‘s most iconic and photographed landmarks, the symmetrical mountain Kirkjufell that towers 1500 ft. up from the shoreline.
Out of Grundarfjörður the route lies across Berserkjahraun lava fields that according to Viking legends was where two Swedish "Berserks" forged Iceland‘s first road and over to the south side of the peninsula through Vatnaleið pass.
