Itinerary
Travel west to Snæfellsness on this remote journey, to the center of the Earth, the grandiose, epic stage for Jules Verne’s timeless novel. Journey back to the land of myriad secrets waiting for your discovery. Ancient, mangled lava fields give rise to the stresses and destruction these lands once endured. Twisted, crippled and bowed volcanic rock, unimaginable shapes and forms flaring up from the earth, create an impressive sight to behold. Wander beside jagged cliffs of Arnarstapi to the beautiful arcs of Hellnar. Creeping pillars of basalt slowly ascend from the unforgiving sea. A stunning backdrop to the summit of Snæfellsjökull will impress and leave you with peace. This road less traveled continues to the lava pearl beaches of Djupalónssandur, peppered with a smooth volcanic rock. Finishing on the north side of this breathtaking peninsula at Kirkjufell, before your return to Reykjavik imparts calm and invigorating positive energy from this mystical land.

Awesome tour

The day tour of Snaefellsnes Peninsula was really enjoyable especially due to our guide 'Thora' who was really knowledgeable and informative. During the return journey she also sang not 1 or 2 but 3 Icelandic songs. Really enjoyed this one.More
