Frequently asked questions

When is the best time to visit Snaefellsnes peninsula?

Snæfellsnes peninsula can be traversed throughout the year. Whale watching tours are operated year-round, but glacier hiking tours run from April to August. Whereas in the winter months, the famous Kirkjufell mountain is blanketed in snow and looks as it did when it appeared in the Game of Thrones TV series. Therefore, when you choose to visit will depend on what you want to see and experience while you are there. No matter the time of year, be sure to pack warm and waterproof clothes as the weather can be changeable.

The combination of beautiful mountains, rock formations, lava fields, glaciers, and pebble beaches gives this peninsula in Iceland the reputation of having ‘a little of everything’ that Iceland has to offer.

How far is Snaefellnes peninsula from Reykjavik?
