Join this unique tour and explore the most photographed places on the Snæfellsnes peninsula in West Iceland. Capture beautiful photos that are sure to get you extra many Likes and boost your social media profiles.

Have you ever dreamed of capturing beautiful photos of powerful waterfalls, black sand beaches, glaciers, and the amazing Northern Lights? We can show you these fantastic sights.

After being picked up at your accommodation, you will visit the black church in Búðir. This is a perfect photo location if you love minimalism in photography, thanks to the contrast of the black facade against the colours of the surrounding Icelandic landscape.

Not far from Búðir lies another popular Instagram location: the charming village of Arnarstapi, with its sea cliffs and rock formations. There are a lot of platforms along the cliffs of Arnastapi from where you can take pictures of the cliffs and the waves crashing through lava arches. Walk around to find the perfect angle and make sure you have a tripod to take some fantastic long exposure shots.

You will then continue through Snæfellsnes National Park where the mystical Snæfellsjökull can be found, the glacier mentioned in Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth. We will stop at Lóndrangar to admire amazing cliffs and rock formations and in Djúpalónssandur for spectacular black beaches.

The absolute highlight of the tour is the majestic Kirkjufell, the most photographed mountain in Iceland. Kirkjufell—the 'church mountain'—is a trendy photo location for Instagrammers and also one of the filming locations of Game of Thrones. 

The features that make this mountain so unique are its conical shape and the small waterfall opposite the mountain, named Kirkjufellsfoss. By following a short path, you will be able to take the iconic shot of the waterfalls with Kirkjufell in the background.

We will end our tour in charming Stykkishólmur, a picturesque town on the northern coast of the peninsula, where you will walk among colourful old Icelandic houses and take pictures of the famous red lighthouse overlooking the harbour before we head back to Reykjavík. If you take this tour during the wintertime, you might catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights on the way back.
