Experience the magic of Snæfellsnes

The Snæfellsnes peninsula in West Iceland is almost a miniature version of the island. In addition to its characteristic Snæfellsjökull glacier, there are black sandy beaches, bird cliffs, spectacular mountains and volcanic craters. On this tour, we will, for example, stop at the small fishing village Arnarstapi, the ancient fishing village Hellnar, visit Djúpalónssandur beach and pass by the iconic Kirkjufell mountain.

The stunning landscape of the peninsula has captured the imagination of people all over the world, ever since Jules Verne wrote the famous science fiction novel "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" but the journey begins at Snæfellsjökull glacier.

    This was one of the reasons why we came to Iceland...to see some of the amazing natural wonders. It was an all day tour but well worth the travel time. The tour included a couple of "comfort" stops plus a lunch stop w/traditional Icelandic fare. We took the tour in the middle of January but had "mild" temps @ 45... more

    Our Pick for Excursions

    5.0 stars on  Friday, July 28 2017

    We took three excursions with this company and one with another. We found this company to be superior. Their buses were newer, seats more comfortable and were equipped with USB ports (essential on the longer tours). The tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly and had easy command of English. We especially recommend the Wonders of Snaefelsnes tour.
