This beautiful national park is a must see. It is very diverse and has magnificent views. Make sure, if you rent a car, you have plenty of gas in the tank, since it is an isolated area.

The entire peninsula of Snaefellsnes is an amazing attraction requiring at least a full day.
It's located some 2 hours drive northwest from Reykjavik, however, I suggest lodging somewhere on the peninsula in order not to waist time driving from/to capital.
We stayed in a countryside lodge (Kirkjufell Guesthouse - very good) close to town of Grundarfjordur and started our day before dawn at 7.30 PM.

Snaefellsnes is nicknamed "Small Iceland" as around it you'll see all main features of this amazing country: waterfalls, mountain peaks, glaciers, lighthouses, black sand beaches, isolated churches in the middle of nowhere, volcanoes,...
Get up early and start your drive. Main attractions are:
- Snaefellsjokul NP with its volcano and glacier,
- Kirkjufell Mountain (one of the most photographed on entire island),
- Kirkjufellfoss waterfalls,
- Saxholl Crater,
- Djupalonssandur black sand beach,
- Londranga basalt stones emerging from the ocean,
- Hellnar and Arnarstapi villages,
- Gatklettur and Stone Bridge cliffside formations,
- Budakirkja black Church,
- Bjarnarfoss waterfall,
- in between the above many amazing nature scenery and small villages. Enjoy.

This is a beautiful national park with diverse stops and things to see. Also the weather changes within the NP and it adds a lot to the atmosphere.

It's the highlight of the trip in the peninsula, a magic place full of things to discover from beaches to rocks and scenic old churches

I would have wanted more time to explore this park. I feel you could go back here for years and still be filled by awe. It's wonderful.

There are a wide variety of trails and points of interest to visit in this fabulous park.

We hiked out to Londrangar to sea the cliffs filled with seabirds (mainly Northern Fulmar since we were late in the season). We saw an orca from the trail!

We also drove out to Öndverðarnest and Skálasnagaviti lighthouses - at the northwestern part of the park. Gravel roads meant slow driving but the views were worth it! The neon orange lighthouse against the dramatic clouds was a photographer’s delight!

We also visited Saxholl Crater - less dramatic than Eldborg crater - but it’s award-winning winding stairs were worth the visit.

There were many other hikes we wish we had time for but those will have to wait for another visit!

If you have the chance drive north from Reykjavik to Snaefellsjokull national park. Its about 2 hours. Do the loop road around the park for stunning views at every turn. Its all of Iceland wrapped up into 1 park. Stunning waterfalls, great coastal views, mountains, scenic roads, beach walks. Its go it all.

This national park and especially around the rather new visitors center is quite amazing. With the volcano in the background and the lava fields around there is plenty to explore and lots of photo opportunities. The visitors enter closes a bit early (1700) which is a bit sad. Around the visitors center, there is also some scenic cliffs and a nice lighthouse.
