Come along on a fantastic tour of the glacial peninsula of Snæfellsnes. See the diverse sights of the area before jumping into a buggy to ride across the white expanse of Snæfellsjökull glacier. Those looking for an exciting adventure should not miss this excursion.

This fun-filled day tour departs from Snæfellsnes Peninsula. From the charming village of Arnarstapi, you'll hop aboard a large 4x4 truck, specially built to handle the rough glacial landscapes of Iceland, and make your way to the magnificent Snæfellsjökull glacier. 

In former times Arnarstapi was a vibrant community and a busy fishing port. Today, it is a thriving centre for tourism as a variety of natural attractions are located in and around the village.

The path from Arnarstapi to the glacier has some fantastic historical locations like Mt. Stapafell which is a pyramid-shaped 526-metre high palagonite mountain and a volcano, located right next to Snæfellsjökull glacier. You will also see the remnants of an old ash factory built in the 1930s'.

At the roots of Snæfellsjökull, you'll exchange the 4x4 truck for a snow track buggy that will take you on a breathtaking ride. You'll travel through the white expanse of Snæfellsjökull glacier, which covers a 7000-year-old stratovolcano.

Snæfellsjökull is one of the most famous sites in Iceland, gaining international attention when Jules Verne made it the entryway to the centre of the earth in his classic sci-fi novel 'Journey to the Centre of the Earth'. The whole area is said to hold a mystical energy and driving along the ice and lava promises to be a unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
