Small-Group Snaefellsnes National Park Day Trip from Reykjavik

85 reviews
Head west to the stunning Snaefellsnes peninsula on a full-day tour from Reykjavik. The excursion is a guaranteed hit with photographers, aspiring geologists, and anyone who loves a good folktale. An extensive itinerary takes you to cliffs, beaches, fjords, mountains, and tiny villages that dot the landscape. The top attraction is Snaefellsjokull Volcano, which Jules Verne in his book 'Journey to the Center of the Earth'.

The road to the beach is paved, there is a small parking lot, and beach is directly in front of the lot so no hiking needed. Unlike most Iceland beaches, this one is actually sandy and golden. It is surrounded by black basalt cliffs and boulders which makes for some beautiful contrasts. If you catch it on a nice day, it would be a beautiful picnic spot. Definitely worth a short detour from the main road to see!

The drive in to Skardsvik was pretty quick but we found it to be quite windy. There wasn’t too much to see/do given the conditions but there is a pretty cool tiny cave / enclosure and there was a picnic table. If you do make the journey I recommend a 20 minute stop roughly but I didn’t notice any washrooms so my recommendation would be to skip this beach and add extra time to a stop at Djupalonssandur.

The view was beautiful, but we could not hike down the beach. It was extremely windy, wet and cold. I guess it is different on a sunny summer day...

Most people would find nothing exciting about a beach with regular sand, but when you’ve been in Iceland for a few days and all you’ve seen are black sand beaches you’d find a new appreciation for golden sand. You’re mind gets tricked into believing that you’ve seen sand this golden for the first time in your life. Although the weather was harsh, and we hardly got to spend 15-20 minutes at the beach because of the crazy itinerary we had for that day, I’d have missed not seeing it.

The black basalt coloumns of Skardsvik beach are beautiful. Lava fields reach all the way to the sea, Very windy
