Private 10-Hour Snaefellsnes Peninsula Sightseeing Tour with Transfer from Reykjavik
Discover the incredible landscapes of the Snaefellsnes peninsula in West Iceland with this private sightseeing tour departing from Reykjavik. Travelers keen to explore the beautiful region known as "Iceland in miniature" with the help of a private guide should book this 10-hour tour today.
Your adventure begins with pick-up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. Your guide will be a fully licensed chauffeur, and your transportation for the day will be a top-of-the-range Land Rover Defender. Once you're in the car and ready to go, you'll start the journey out of Reykjavik.
Your driver will take your group to the Snaefellsnes peninsula. The region is home to many natural sights and beautiful attractions. Since this is a private tour, you'll be able to customize your plans and make stops wherever you choose.
Many travelers on the peninsula choose to stop in the fishing village of Stykkisholmur. The town is on the peninsula's northern coast and has lovely views of the Breidafjordur fjord. It's the largest settlement on the Snaefellsnes peninsula, so this is an excellent place to pick up some snacks for the rest of your day.
Another popular stop on this tour is Kirkjufell mountain. It's one of the most-photographed mountains in Iceland thanks to its unusual conical shape. Its name translates to "church mountain" because it looks like a steeple. Your driver can take you to the base of the mountain so that you can get some stunning photos of this remarkable place.
The main attraction in this region is Snaefellsjokull National Park. One of only three national parks in Iceland, it's home to the jaw-dropping Snaefellsjokull volcano and glacier.
Snaefellsjokull is a twin-peaked volcano that has become one of Iceland's most easily recognizable sights. It was the entrance to the earth's core in Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth, and it's so large that people in Reykjavik, around 75 miles (120 kilometers) away, can see it on a clear day.
Your knowledgeable guide will take you into the heart of the national park and tell you about the history and geography of the area. You'll be able to explore at your own pace, enjoying the magnificent views and taking gorgeous photos.
You'll start your journey back to Reykjavik when you're ready to go. You can ask your driver to stop at other attractions on the peninsula on your way back. The black-sand beach at Djupalonssandur is worth a visit, as are the Londrangar cliffs. You could also stop at the fishing villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar.
You'll arrive back at your accommodation in Reykjavik in the evening after a fantastic day of sightseeing and exploring.
