Explore the Snaefellsnes Peninsula with a moderate-level hike followed by hot spring bathing and a three-course meal. Hiking and gourmet food enthusiasts will love the perfect combination of active adventure and rejuvenation on this tour and should book now.

Your exciting day begins when you meet your tour guide and the other participants at the Midhraun Lava Resort on the eastern Snaefellsnes Peninsula. From there, the group will take a bus to Grundarfoss waterfall, where the hike begins.

Grundarfoss waterfall is a picturesque spot to start the walk. Ensure your camera is ready to snap photos of the pristine water tumbling from rugged cliffs amid breathtaking surroundings.

Today you’ll walk the Lysuskard trail, a moderately-difficult trek around 8 miles (13 kilometers) long. The path takes you from Snaefell’s north to its south through valleys and ravines with the mountains towering around you.

The first part of the hike is the most strenuous due to the steep incline. However, you’ll set off in high spirits after marveling at Grundarfoss’ beauty. Getting the most challenging portion done initially while your energy levels are high is also fantastic.

Your guide will keep you going with insights about geology and stories of folk sagas, an excellent way to understand more about the area you’re hiking. You also get energy-rich snacks as part of this tour, so you can have them ready whenever you need a pick-me-up.

The trail follows an old national road, and the setting is stunning. As you weave through valleys and canyons, it’s all about enjoying the journey. You’ll have opportunities to stop and rest or take photos for lasting memories of your magical day.

The walk finishes at the Lysulaugar mineral algae baths, where drinks and refreshments await. After refueling, you can relax completely in the warm geothermal waters. It’s the perfect way to ease tired muscles and reflect on your trek. 

Hot spring bathing is a favorite Icelandic pastime and one of the best ways to rejuvenate your body. The Lysulaugar mineral algae baths feature a pool, two hot tubs, and an ice bath amid glorious mountain scenery. 

You’ll feel revitalized after your thermal bathing experience and, by now, ready for a delicious meal. From Lysulaugar, the driver will take you back to the Midhraun Lava Resort, the tour’s starting and finishing point.

This incredible day isn’t over yet, though! The friendly resort staff will greet you with cocktails before the group enjoys an outstanding three-course meal. It’s an unbeatable way to finish an epic day full of nature, adventure, food, and relaxation.

Don’t miss this gourmet hiking tour on the Snaefellnes Peninsula, including a moderate-level hike, hot spring bathing, and a three-course meal. Check availability now by choosing a date.
