Snaefellsnes Peninsula Classic Day Tour from Reykjavik

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet a driver at your hotel in Reykjavik, then begin the 93-mile (150-km) trip to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, a tranquil retreat from the bustling city. The first stop of the day is the black sand beach of Djupalónssandur, where the rock worn smooth by countless waves, to learn about its rich history.
    Then drive to Kirkjufell, a stunningly-formed mountain peak whose name means "Church Mountain," and looms behind the scenic waterfalls at the base.
    As you drive, Snæfellsjökull will dominate the horizon as you travel, and you’ll find stunning views of the ancient stratovolcano, which is capped with a shining glacier. Stop at the Londrangar viewpoint to admire the rock formations.
    The final stop is the village of Arnarstapi, for a scenic walk along a row of jagged cliffs. Then begin the return trip to Reykjavik, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

    Underrated tour. Extremely beautiful. The tour guide was informative both about the sights and Iceland in general. The stops were well timed, short lunch breaks which allowed us to spend more time at the actual locations. Highly, highly recommend.

    Our tour was mid February. We were on a large tour bus that was less than half full. Perhaps 25 people.

    I was on this tour today and we did not visit the seal beach. The tour guide told me they took it off the itinerary.
