Description

Embark on an unforgettable trip to see West Iceland in this 12-hour private tour to the Snaefellsnes peninsula. Those eager to see the sights will be treated to volcanic beaches, dramatic landscapes, and famous mountains that are sure to satisfy their appetite for adventure.

This private tour will provide you with a tour guide and personalized transportation to ensure your comfort and care during the journey. Away from the crowds and with a knowledgeable guide, you'll start your trip from your pick-up point in Reykjavik. From there, it's a cozy ride to the West with plenty to see along the way.

The destinations on this tour will let you experience Iceland's many wonders. A colony of seals will greet you on the golden sands of Ytri Tunga beach. Further along, you'll see the iconic cone-shaped Kirkjufell mountain with the equally magnificent Kirkjufell waterfall cascading beside it.

In the village of Budir, you'll come across a striking image of a jet-black church set upon the backdrop of the beautiful Icelandic landscape. The Black Church of Budir was built in 1703 and was once the center of a formally busy fishing village.

You'll also stop at the charming village of Arnarstapi, where you can admire the view of the seas from above the cliffs. On the black sand beaches of Djupalonssandur, you can test your strength on the four ancient lifting stones.

For centuries, these stones measured the readiness of Icelandic youth for fishing on the icy seas. The dramatic scenery will continue to amaze you as you stop at the basalt cliffs of Londrangar. This attraction is a bird-watching haven in summer, home to many species and thousands of nesting pairs.

You'll also feast your eyes on the magnificent Snaefellsjokull, a 7000-year-old glacier-capped volcano that you can see from all the way back in Reykjavik, 75 miles (120 kilometers) away. Snaefellsjokull is most famous for inspiring the novel 'A Journey to the Center of the Earth' by Jules Verne.

This magical tour of the Snaefellsnes peninsula gives you the best experience of West Iceland. The private tour allows you to take your time enjoying the sights and capturing the views while also ensuring your comfort and enjoyment throughout the journey. 

You'll ride back to Reykjavik with plenty of memories to treasure.
