Gather up your favourite people and join this private tour of the magical Snæfellsnes peninsula. Visit sleeping fishing villages and sandy shores, see stunning waterfalls, imposing mountains and jagged lava rocks. You can even race across the icecap of the majestic Snæfellsjökull glacier by snowmobile on this immersive day tour. 

This is the perfect tour for those looking for a more personalised and individual experience. You will be picked up from Reykjavík in the morning by a 4x4 Jeep or a minibus, depending on the size of your group. Then you will be whisked away out of the city to the wondrous Snæfellsnes peninsula.

The peninsula has been dubbed ‘Iceland in miniature’ as it has all of the elements that make Iceland so unique. There you’ll find stretches of black lava fields, beautiful waterfalls and colourful mountains. The area boasts lovely villages, sandy shores, high cliffs and, of course, a mighty glacier. 

Snæfellsnes is not only stunningly beautiful, it is also steeped in history, and your expert guide will tell you stories of days of old while you traverse the region. You will also get to know the peninsula’s many folklores and myths, and visit places where trolls and elves are said to live.  

The legendary Snæfellsjökull glacier will loom over you as you travel along the stunning landscape. The glacier sits on top of a 7000-year-old dormant stratovolcano and gained some fame when it served as the entrance to the subterranean excursion in Jules Verne’s classic science fiction novel ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’.

In the hamlet of Arnarstapi, you will have the exclusive opportunity to hop on board a snowmobile and ride across the icy plane of this famous glacier for some amazing views of the pearly white snow, rugged mountains and the vast Atlantic ocean. 

Don’t miss this exclusive chance to see the stunning and mythical Snæfellsnes peninsula. See the sights with only the people you cherish on this private day tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
