Description

Embark on a breathtaking hike of the Drapuhlidarfjall mountain on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, then reward yourself with a relaxing swim in a geothermal swimming pool and a delicious four-course meal on this full-day tour. Adventurers who want a challenging hike and a fantastic culinary experience will love this all-inclusive tour.

The excitement begins in the charming town of Stykkisholmur, the largest settlement on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. You will meet your expert local guide, who will introduce you to the geology of the Drapuhlidarfjall mountain and the folk tales surrounding it. They’ll also give you some energy-rich snacks to keep you going during the hike. 

Once you arrive at the starting point, lead by your guide, you’ll begin your ascent. The hike is about 2.8 miles (4.6 kilometers) long, but it’s a reasonably challenging route with a climb of roughly 1,624 feet (495 meters). The demanding nature of this hike means the tour is unsuitable for novice hikers or people without a good fitness level.

As you hike, you’ll encounter the stunning colors of the bright, yellowish liparite rock that dominates the mountain. Other unique features like crystal-filled pebbles, flaky rock, and beautiful heather will make this a memorable walk. Be sure to bring your camera.

At the summit, hikers can bask in the feeling of joy and freedom as they take in the breathtaking panoramic views of the area. The view spans from Breidafjordur Bay and all its islands to the rugged Berserkjahraun lava field and the mountain ridge along the Snaefellsnes Peninsula.

After enjoying the view, you’ll walk back down the mountain. You’ll be walking for about three or four hours, so you’ll have quite an appetite by now. The group will stop for a lovely meal, prepared by a local restaurant. 

Don’t miss your chance to take part in a spectacular mountain hike on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Check availability now by choosing a date.
