Full description

Discover an oasis of tranquility in the west of Iceland and journey back to the land of myriad secrets and ancient landscapes on this group tour from Reykjavik. Travel to the highlights of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula aboard a climate-controlled minibus.

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. Explore the north side of the peninsula and the famous Mt. Kirkjufell. Discover the photographer's dream subject, the black church at Budir, which sits in desolate isolation. Look out for playful seals at Ytri Tunga gold beach, your final stop. Then, journey back to your meeting point in Reykjavik.

Benefit from the extensive knowledge and experience of your 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.

Great tour! Snæfellsnes really is all of Iceland in miniature and even less touristy than other places! Above all, the small group is very personal and I would recommend it because you are very flexible and need less time at the stops and can make one or the other stopover. Our tour guide David was also very nice and was able to tell a lot about the peninsula and Iceland in general

I already did the tour in summer and even now in winter it was a completely different one. We were extremely lucky with the weather and the scenery was just a dream! Our guide had a lot to tell about the area, took us to each station and was just as wonderful as a photographer. All in all a long but beautiful tour that MUST be done when visiting Iceland.

Unfortunately, several groups had to be swept together in a large bus. This bus also had a breakdown, which meant that the excursion for us only ended at 21:00! And we had to get up at 3 AM to go home. Received an email with an apology and a proposal to do another excursion with a 50% discount. Useless because we went home. Nothing but praise for the guide about the excursion itself! The places he showed were also beautiful and impressive. I wonder if we'll get some sort of compensation...
