Tour description

The Wonders of Snæfellsnes National Park

There is something otherworldly about Snæfellsnes that Icelanders often associate it with spiritual experiences and folk tales. This tour provides insight and spectacular views of this unique area where geological wonders border on the magical.  

A Sample of Iceland

The Snæfellsnes peninsula in the West of Iceland is almost like a miniature version of the entire island. The area has beautiful samples of some of the natural wonders Iceland is famous for. This includes black beaches, magnificent mountains, volcanic craters, incredible birdlife, magical caves, and the most picturesque glacier of them all, Snæfellsjökull.

Volcanoes & Villages

This tour stops at the small fishing village of Arnarstapi and provides real insight into quintessential volcanic craters. Along the way, you’ll get great views of the iconic Kirkjufell mountain, and the dark cliffs and black sand of Djúpalónssandur bay are a favourite among photographers. 

The Star of the Show

In the middle of this beautiful peninsula sits Snæfellsjökull, the stunning glacier that has captured people’s imagination all over the world. One of them is Jules Verne, who began his Journey to the Centre of the Earth at Snæfellsjökull glacier. The tour offers numerous views of this beautiful landmark. It is, after all, the real star of the show.
