Description

Enjoy an action-packed day exploring the fascinating sites of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula on this private tour from Reykjavik. Those who want to visit ‘Iceland in Miniature’ without worrying about other tourists by booking this customizable adventure!

Your private guide will pick you up from your accommodation in Reykjavik and drive your group alone through the landscapes of West Iceland towards the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. As you pass through rural landscapes and stunning coastlines, your guide will tell you about the region’s history and folklore and answer any of your questions.

They will also get to know your interests so that they can customize a tour perfectly suited to your group. After all, Snaefellsnes is packed with diverse attractions that have appeal to all sorts of travelers.

Those fascinated in wildlife, for example, can put extra focus on the seal-watching beach of Ytri Tunga, which has a year-round population, and the giant sea-stacks of Londrangar, which are home to thousands of birdlife. If Iceland’s fishing culture interests you, you can visit the thriving village of Arnarstapi and the Bjarnahofn shark museum, where you can taste fermented shark, otherwise known as hakarl. The Djupanlonssandur black sand beach is also worth visiting due to its lifting stones, which fishermen used to test their strength against to verify their fitness for the rough oceans.

Other cultural attractions include the windswept church of Budir, the abandoned village of Hellnar, and the town of Stykkisholmur.

However, it is the breathtaking natural sites of Snaefellsnes that most are eager to marvel over. The pyramid-shaped peak of Kirkjufell is so beautiful that it was featured in the last seasons of Game of Thrones and boasts a charming adjacent waterfall. Meanwhile, the cliffside cleft of Raudfeldsgja is a dramatic feature you can climb inside to find another waterfall.

Within Snaefellsjokull National Park on the peninsula’s tip, you will find even more features, most notably the subglacial volcano of the same name. This twin-peaked feature is magnificent, mystical, and said to sit on the intersection of two ley lines. If you plan with your guide in advance, you could hike this glacier or go on a caving tour beneath it.

After an action-packed day tailored to your group, you’ll return to Reykjavik.
