Come along on a wonderful tour on the glacial peninsula of Snæfellsnes. We take off from Arnarstapi up a wonderful path to the roots of Snæfellsjökull Glacier. There we exchange from 4x4 truck to Snow Track Buggy that takes us on a magnificent trip on the glacier.

The path from Arnarstapi to the glacier has some fantastic historical locations. In former times Arnarstapi was a vibrant community. It was thus from very early on, a busy fishing port and commercial centre, servicing the West Coast area.

Today Arnarstapi is still a somewhat busy harbour during the summer months, serving private fishing and recreational vessels as well with its maintained docks that were renewed in 2002. Being a popular destination for tourists in summer, Arnarstapi is today a thriving centre for local tourism activities where there is a variety of natural and culinary attractions as well as a cluster of second homes are located in and around the village.

In front of Arnarstapi, you see Mt. Stapafell, it is a pyramid shaped 526 m high palagonite mountain and a volcano right next to Snæfellsjökull Glacier. The mountain looks like a pyramid only seen from Arnarstapi, but when you drive up by it and visit Sönghellir cave then you will have a totally different view of Stapafell. On the way, you will also see where we had an ash factory build in 1930's used to produce a type of cheaper concrete for houses, it hasn't been used sins 1955.

It is a mystical and powerful experience to drive along in ice and lava with such amazing story. Snæfellsjökull Glacier is said one of the eight points of power in the world and is one of the most famous sites in Iceland. It is situated in the most western part of the Snæfellsnes peninsula in Iceland. Sometimes it may be seen from the city of Reykjavík over Faxaflói, at a distance of 120 km.

Come and join us for this unique experience!
