Snaefellsnes National Park | Small Group Day Tour

Jump aboard this captivating tour to the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Sometimes called ‘Iceland in Miniature’ due to its vast diversity of landscapes, this is the perfect trip for those who seek to capture the true spirit and beauty of this incredible island. This is a small-group minibus tour for a maximum of 19 people, allowing for a comfortable and personal experience.You’ll be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík in the morning, then head north-west. While the immediate surrounding scenery will be of rolling farmlands, it will diversify as soon as you reach the peninsula. You will cruise between the beautiful, rocky coast and a long range of mountains to your first destination: the Snæfellsjökull subglacial volcano.Often called ‘the crown jewel of the peninsula’, Snæfellsjökull is a magnificent, cone-shaped volcano adorned with ice throughout the year. Its beauty has inspired writers and artists for centuries, most notably Jules Verne; his novel ‘A Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ is set here.After admiring this incredible natural landmark, you will head to the charming farm of Ytri-Tunga to see its resident seal colony. These creatures, which spend hours hauling out on the shore, are a pleasure to observe, as they lazily sun themselves with little concern for those observing them. Animal-lovers would do well to keep an eye on the ocean around here too, as Snæfellsnes is one of the best places in the country to spot orcas from the shore.You will next see the charming villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, which are said to be steeped in magic and folklore. They are located in a lovely coastal area, which is dotted with beautiful rock formations and dramatic cliffs.The most notable of these geological formations are the two basalt columns called Lóndrangar, so tall and striking that many have compared them to a castle. Near these, you will have a chance to wander along a gorgeous black beach, Djúpalónssandur, the cliffs of which are home to many nesting seabirds.At Djúpalónssandur, you’ll find a curiosity on the beach: four large, smooth stones. They are ‘lifting stones’, once used to measure the strength of fishermen who worked and lived along the coasts here. Your guide will tell you what each was called, and you can see how well you would have risen to the challenge of moving them.Your final stop will be at the most photographed mountain in all of Iceland. Kirkjufell rises alone from a sea of green hills and wildflowers, surrounded by trickling rivers and little waterfalls; it is without a doubt one of the most scenic areas in the country. You’ll want to have your camera on hand when exploring this beautiful feature.The Snæfellnes peninsula is one of the country’s most beautiful spots. Don’t miss your opportunity to see 'Iceland in Miniature'. Check availability by choosing a date.

Along these hilly, volcanic paths, riders will observe sweeping panoramas of green plateaus and even the mighty volcano, Hengill.Given the length of this tour, you will be taking a break at local stables to learn more about the area and indulge in some light refreshments and snacks. When everybody is ready, you will make a pleasant return journey back to where you started, before boarding a bus heading to Reykjavík.So don't wait! Gallop your way onto this tour, and you too can experience Iceland’s hot springs, geothermal valleys, forests and plateaus, all from atop your own Icelandic horse.

Beautiful South Coast Bus Tour

Join this awe-inspiring sightseeing tour along the beautiful south coast of Iceland. With waterfalls, volcanoes, glaciers and black sand beaches, you will have the opportunity to see a wealth of diverse scenery in just one day.You will be picked up from your Reykjavík hotel, or a pre-arranged meeting point, from 8 am. Once your whole group is gathered, you will start to make your way east. The drive is very scenic, and your guide will note any points of interest that you will pass. One such feature will be the glacier Eyjafjallajökull, which gained notoriety in 2010 when the volcano beneath it erupted and severely hampered air travel across Europe.The first stop, however, will be at Seljalandsfoss waterfall. This is a beautiful feature in the landscape, and unique in the sense that it is possible to walk all the way around it due to the concave shape of the cliff it tumbles from. Once you have enjoyed the area, and taken your photos from behind the cascading water, it is back on the road to the next falls.At 60 metres (197 ft) tall and up to 25 metres (82 ft) wide, the Skógafoss waterfall is awe-inspiringly powerful, and the spray rising from its base throws off many rainbows when the sun is shining. It is possible to ascend a staircase beside the falls for a unique perspective and a good look at the birds who nest in the surrounding cliffs.Following Skógafoss, you will stop at Sólheimajökull glacier where your guide will walk you right up to its edge, allowing you to look at an ancient world of blue and white ice, veined with the black ash of eruptions dating back centuries. After drinking in the beauty of this magnificent place, it is back on the road to the fascinating cape Dyrhólaey.The dramatic basalt cliffs here stretch out into the ocean and feature an enormous sea arch. Puffins and other seabirds nest all around the area during summer. From Dyrhólaey, looking east, it is possible to see the Reynisdrangar sea stacks, promontories that rise 66 metres (217 ft) from the ocean. Legend has it that these are two petrified trolls, who were caught in the sun when trying to pull a ship ashore.You will get a better view of Reynisdranger at the final stop of the day, Reynisfjara beach. This stretch of coast is considered to be one of the most beautiful in Iceland, with its black sands, fascinating geology, and dramatic waves. Once you have fully enjoyed this magnificent shore, it is time to head back to Reykjavík, with a camera full of photos and a head full of memories.There is so much you can see on the South Coast in just one day. Don't let this experience pass you by. Come aboard for a sightseeing experience to remember; check availability by choosing a date.

Snaefellsnes National Park | Small Group Day Tour

Jump aboard this captivating tour to the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Sometimes called ‘Iceland in Miniature’ due to its vast diversity of landscapes, this is the perfect trip for those who seek to capture the true spirit and beauty of this incredible island. This is a small-group minibus tour for a maximum of 19 people, allowing for a comfortable and personal experience.You’ll be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík in the morning, then head north-west. While the immediate surrounding scenery will be of rolling farmlands, it will diversify as soon as you reach the peninsula. You will cruise between the beautiful, rocky coast and a long range of mountains to your first destination: the Snæfellsjökull subglacial volcano.Often called ‘the crown jewel of the peninsula’, Snæfellsjökull is a magnificent, cone-shaped volcano adorned with ice throughout the year. Its beauty has inspired writers and artists for centuries, most notably Jules Verne; his novel ‘A Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ is set here.After admiring this incredible natural landmark, you will head to the charming farm of Ytri-Tunga to see its resident seal colony. These creatures, which spend hours hauling out on the shore, are a pleasure to observe, as they lazily sun themselves with little concern for those observing them. Animal-lovers would do well to keep an eye on the ocean around here too, as Snæfellsnes is one of the best places in the country to spot orcas from the shore.You will next see the charming villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, which are said to be steeped in magic and folklore. They are located in a lovely coastal area, which is dotted with beautiful rock formations and dramatic cliffs.The most notable of these geological formations are the two basalt columns called Lóndrangar, so tall and striking that many have compared them to a castle. Near these, you will have a chance to wander along a gorgeous black beach, Djúpalónssandur, the cliffs of which are home to many nesting seabirds.At Djúpalónssandur, you’ll find a curiosity on the beach: four large, smooth stones. They are ‘lifting stones’, once used to measure the strength of fishermen who worked and lived along the coasts here. Your guide will tell you what each was called, and you can see how well you would have risen to the challenge of moving them.Your final stop will be at the most photographed mountain in all of Iceland. Kirkjufell rises alone from a sea of green hills and wildflowers, surrounded by trickling rivers and little waterfalls; it is without a doubt one of the most scenic areas in the country. You’ll want to have your camera on hand when exploring this beautiful feature.The Snæfellnes peninsula is one of the country’s most beautiful spots. Don’t miss your opportunity to see 'Iceland in Miniature'. Check availability by choosing a date.

With waterfalls, volcanoes, glaciers and black sand beaches, you will have the opportunity to see a wealth of diverse scenery in just one day.You will be picked up from your Reykjavík hotel, or a pre-arranged meeting point, from 8 am. Once your whole group is gathered, you will start to make your way east. The drive is very scenic, and your guide will note any points of interest that you will pass. One such feature will be the glacier Eyjafjallajökull, which gained notoriety in 2010 when the volcano beneath it erupted and severely hampered air travel across Europe.The first stop, however, will be at Seljalandsfoss waterfall. This is a beautiful feature in the landscape, and unique in the sense that it is possible to walk all the way around it due to the concave shape of the cliff it tumbles from. Once you have enjoyed the area, and taken your photos from behind the cascading water, it is back on the road to the next falls.At 60 metres (197 ft) tall and up to 25 metres (82 ft) wide, the Skógafoss waterfall is awe-inspiringly powerful, and the spray rising from its base throws off many rainbows when the sun is shining.

After drinking in the beauty of this magnificent place, it is back on the road to the fascinating cape Dyrhólaey.The dramatic basalt cliffs here stretch out into the ocean and feature an enormous sea arch. Puffins and other seabirds nest all around the area during summer. From Dyrhólaey, looking east, it is possible to see the Reynisdrangar sea stacks, promontories that rise 66 metres (217 ft) from the ocean. Legend has it that these are two petrified trolls, who were caught in the sun when trying to pull a ship ashore.You will get a better view of Reynisdranger at the final stop of the day, Reynisfjara beach. This stretch of coast is considered to be one of the most beautiful in Iceland, with its black sands, fascinating geology, and dramatic waves. Once you have fully enjoyed this magnificent shore, it is time to head back to Reykjavík, with a camera full of photos and a head full of memories.There is so much you can see on the South Coast in just one day. Don't let this experience pass you by. Come aboard for a sightseeing experience to remember; check availability by choosing a date.
