GOOD TO KNOW:
We recommend all guests to bring warm clothing and wear good shoes to be able to fully enjoy this experience. Furthermore, the tour will break for refreshments at a local restaurants or café but it lunch is not included. It is also allowed to bring light snacks for the trip.
Our journey begins in Reykjavik where you will be picked up at your hotel for a day full of adventure through lava fields, mountains and ancient fishing villages.
The beauty & mystery of Snæfellsnes Peninsula lies in the natural history of the area and you might just be lucky enough to see seals, rare Atlantic birds and possibly whales from the shoreline as much of the day is spent on the coast. For the same reason, the tour can be slightly different every time as your guide of the day has flexibility to make short stops here and there when we come across wildlife or any other natural attractions beyond our control.
For the 2 hour drive from Reykjavik to Snæfellsnes we are rewarded with amazing views of the mountains, spectacular fjords and black sand beaches.
We spend the day exploring the surreal landscapes of lava fields, coastal cliffs and even small ice-cap with glaciers. Those are of course Arnarstapi coastal cliffs, Hellnar fishing village and more famous attractions. Among the stops is the “most photographed mountain” in Iceland – the effable Kirkjufell mountain. And throughout the whole tour we will be blessed of up-close views of Snaefellsjokull glacier.
The driving distance for the day is around 400 kilometers and total driving time is approx. 4,5 hours. But as all of this is divided into shorter adventures between the highlighted attraction it will be comfortable and easy.
