Snæfellsnes Minibus Expedition

Based on 11 traveller reviews

Avoid the crowds and come along for a full day minibus exploration of the majestic Snæfellsnes Peninsula.

After being picked up from your preferred location in Reykjavík, you'll join us for a drive towards Iceland's majestic western coastline. Here you'll experience first-hand the beautiful landscapes this unique part of the country has to offer.

You'll stop at some of the most famous must-see spots and a few extra ones as well. You'll get to visit the picturesque Kirkjufell waterfall, situated right next to the iconic cone shaped Kirkjufell mountain. 

You'll also visit the stunning black sand beach of Djúpalónssandur. There you'll get a chance to test your strength on the four ancient lifting stones that for centuries were used to measure whether or not Icelandic boys were strong enough to become fishermen.

In addition, you'll pass the serene fishing village of Arnarstapi where you can admire the charming little houses that overlook the cliffs and seascape. If you're a fan of 'The secret life of Walter Mitty' you'll be delighted since some of the scenes from the movie are filmed in that exact location!

You'll also stop to see the dramatic landscapes of the Lóndrangar basalt cliffs before reaching the enchanting Snæfellsjökull glacier. This 7000-year-old stratovolcano with a glacier covered peak can be seen from the city of Reykjavík, at a distance of 120 kilometres. Situated on the most western part of the peninsula, Snæfellsjökull remains one of Iceland's most iconic attractions, famed for its captivating and mystical atmosphere which was the setting of Jules Verne's 'Journey to the Centre of the Earth'.

You'll have plenty of time to walk around, admire and take photos at each and every stop along the way. The free wi-fi onboard the minibus, Icelandic music and snacks will ensure that this trip is as comfortable as possible.

After doing other tours with Troll Expeditions, this was unfortunately our last one as our flight was the day after, we were very lucky as we got the last 2 seats on this tour! As with our other two tours this one was amazing, this was the third guide we had and they were all so amazing, they always made sure we were getting as much as possible out of our trips, doing extra stops and keeping us entertained the whole time! The Snaefellsnes peninsula is breathtaking, we did plan to come to this area on our trip so we did not know much about it before, but this is a must visit place!! The small fishing villages, beautiful mountains and beaches make this tour absolutely amazing!! Thank you, thank you, thank you Troll Expeditions, we will see you again in winter for northern lights tours!!!

We did total 3 tours with this provider, even if the weather was windy and it rained a fair bit we had a great time hearing stories about Iceland and being informed about different landscapes and myths on Snæfellsnes.

The Snaefellsnes peninsula is something you have to see! The peninsula has it all, black sand beaches, red sand beaches, mountains, glacier, waterfalls and a lot of small and friendly towns. Our guide was fantastic! Thank you Trolls!

I basically went on this trip to see Kirkjufell mountain, which was amazing and made my day! But everything else was brilliant. Turns out my favorite part of the tour was Arnarstapi. Our guide was very entertaining and gave interesting facts about Norse Mythology, trolls and elves throughout the ride, which is very big in Iceland. She also told us the history of each place we visited. I definitely recommend this tour!

Turns out I was lucky enough to have the same guide for the Golden Circle and the Snæfellsnes day tour. Kristján, he is the perfect mix of knowledge and energy. And believe me you need energy to fully take inn all these majestic places. We made several stops at very photogenic places. My favorites were Ytri Tunga where we could walk as close as 3 meters away from seals lying on the sandy beach. Overall this tour showed me how beautiful Iceland is and I would say it´´s a must for every visitor. Attn: Bring a camera to document the different landscaped and amazing moments that you experience.

Kirkjufell is the most beautiful mountain I have ever seen! And I have travelled the world around. Everything was perfect, we had an amazing guide, weather was good and we got to see everything in good time. Highly recommended!

Easy laid back stressless tour of the peninsula with a fun entertaining guide that has good knowledge about the area and played some funky Icelandic music on the way. The weather was not all to good but Hey this is iceland! and the view is magnificent and the colours and scenery great. One of the better tours we did with Troll tours on our stay. We will definitely be back and can highly recommend them.

Great experiance! We had such a nice time in the tour. Snaefellsnes is clearly one of the great places we've ever been to. The tour was well organized, with great mix of professional guiding and friendly fun. Our guide SIgga is clearly the best guide I've ever had.

We were so lucky to visit the Peninsula, this area is very remote and the landscapes is just unbelievable beautiful. Snæfellsjökull remains one of Iceland's most iconic attractions and I highly recommend it for everyone wanting a off the beaten path experience.

nice tour with a great guide for a fair price! definitely recommended.
