Sightseeing on the Svalvogar Peninsula | Westfjords Super Jeep Tour

Sightseeing on the Svalvogar Peninsula | Westfjords Super Jeep Tour
You will pass by relics of a society that no longer sustains itself in this area of the Westfjords.
Sometimes referred to as 'The Dream Road', Svalvogar is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful routes in Iceland.
Super Jeeps allow you to travel to areas otherwise inaccessible to guests.
On your Super Jeep tour exploring the Svalvogar Cliffs, you will also discover mountains, rugged coastlines and beautiful fjords.
The captivating landscapes of the Westfjords truly defy the imagination.
Beneath the Svalvogar Cliffs, you will have a real insight into the dramatic scale of Iceland's nature.

Join this thrilling sightseeing tour circling the coastal roads of the Svalvogar peninsula by Super Jeep. This is a fantastic tour opportunity for guests hoping to experience one of the lesser-trodden sightseeing routes, and for those who wish to immerse themselves in the landscapes of the Westfjords. Don't miss your chance!

The Svalvogar route is distinguished by its craggy cliffs, sweeping black beaches, burbling brooks, fascinating rock formations and abandoned farmsteads. Steeped in fascinating folklore and rich with culture and history, you'll find yourself quickly succumbing to the many prevalent charms of the Westfjords region.

Tackling a variety of terrain, you will gain an up-close look at all of these interesting features as your Super Jeep trundles along twisting gravel roads. Passing by sights of particular interest, you will stop to take photographs and appreciate the sheer beauty of your surroundings. The Svalvogar cliffs are particularly staggering, providing a clear insight into the ocean's incredible influence over Iceland's coastline. 

Thankfully, no trip around the Svalvogar Peninsula is exactly the same, meaning this tour is perfect for repeat visitors to Iceland. For instance, lucky participants may see seals, arctic foxes or even whales on occasion, though this, of course, cannot be guaranteed on the trip. A wandering sheep or two is more than typical, however.

Waving purple fields of lupine will sprout everywhere as summer continues, and the mountains will change their face with the passing months, drifting from a dark and domineering grey to an innocent white. Fall colours will begin to appear later in the season. No matter when you decide to join us, Svalvogar peninsula always provides a memorable experience.

So don't hesitate any longer. Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the incredible Westfjords with this thrilling tour discovering the Svalvogar Peninsula. Check availability by choosing a date.
