Join this incredible journey to the alluring Snæfellsnes Peninsula in the west of the country. This is a fantastic tour opportunity for those travellers looking to gain a real insight into this fascinating region,  as well as those drawn to picturesque landscapes and unique natural attractions.  

On this tour, you will be visiting a lava cave, a jet-black volcanic beach, cascading waterfalls and ancient, dried magma fields. Of course, throughout your trip, you be in the shadow of the magical Snæfellsjökull glacial volcano, most famous for its starring role in Jules Verne's fantastical novel, "Journey to the Center of the Earth”.

Your first stop of the day is at Gerðuberg, a beautiful basalt column with formations up to 14 meters in height and 1.5 meters in diameter. Moving west towards Vatnshellir lava cave, you will quickly be awe-inspired by this amazing geological feature smack dab in the middle of an 8000-year-old lava field. This attraction was formed in an eruption in the nearby crater, Purkhólar.

Next on your list is the small, ancient fishing village of Hellnar, found close by to Lóndrangar rock formations. Lóndrangar is a series of volcanic basalt plugs, 75 and 61 meters high, beautifully structured and formed by erosion of the surrounding material.

At the edge of Snæfellsnes Peninsula is Djúpalónssandur black beach. The small black pebbles on the beach have been smoothed by the ocean waves, and amongst them are scattered rusted parts of a 1948 shipwreck.

You will also visit Kirkjufell, located on the northern side of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. It is one of the most picturesque mountains in Iceland. This is the last stop before heading back to Reykjavík.

So what's the delay? Hurry, and you too can dip into the brilliant landscapes of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula with this thrilling day tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
