Full description
Following your Reykjavik hotel pickup, you will hop inside your climate-controlled Super Jeep, a 4x4 specially equipped to tackle Iceland’s rugged terrain. You will meet your group of no more than six passengers, and then enjoy the views of the stunning west coast as you travel north to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. You will hear about this untouched peninsula, immortalized by Jules Verne in his novel "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" from your guide, and learn about its viking heritage and folk tales, beloved by Iceland’s artists, writers, and musicians. Upon arrival, you will enjoy a comprehensive tour of the peninsula’s scenic highlights, quaint towns, and villages. You can view Snæfellsjökull, the towering, snow-covered volcano on the peninsula’s tip, and take photos of the rock formations. You can also watch for "kittiwakes" as your guide explains how Verne imagined the volcano’s crater as the entrance to the earth’s center. Next, you will pause at Skardsvík Beach to admire its golden sand and cliffs, before driving through the folklore-steeped Lóndrangar to see its basalt pinnacles that look like a seaside rock castle. You will then stop for photos at Búdir, where a tiny church stands picturesquely against the Snæfellsjökull Volcano, before visiting the villages of Hellnar and Arnarstapi, tucked among basalt mountains and connected by a spectacular coastal road that winds past rock formations. Keep your camera ready for the harbor town of Grundarfjördur. Set beneath Mt. Kirkjufell, this is a stunning, cone-shaped mountain replete with waterfalls and known as one of Iceland’s prettiest spots. You’ll also visit Stykkishólmur, one of Snæfellsjökull’s most charming towns which is known for its environmental sustainability. You can admire the pastel-hued buildings, see the well-preserved traditional houses in the center, and take in the surrounding coastline, home to colonies of seabirds.
