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'.

This tour is a must if you come to this area. We went for the 45 min tour with a guide. Because of Covid-19 we did not book in advance (I think it is normally a popular tour, so booking in advance is recommended). We just met up at the cave. Tours two times a day: 13:00 and 14:00. It was a very informative and thrilling tour. Our guide was very good, telling stories about the cave. At one point we were asked to turn of all light and just stand in the cave and hear the dripping and experience the total darkness. Very cool!

We went there spontaneously and it was just amazing. Walking through the caves with torches and being in total darkness for a short moment (just listening to the sound of the cave) was a great experience. Our guide was funny and very friendly and we would definitely recommend the visit.

Quite an interesting tour to find out more about volcano cave. Visiting this beautiful cave was a unique experience. Vatnshellir was created in a volcanic eruption some 8,000 years ago. Enjoy the quick walk to go down 30 meters under ground approximately. When you explore Vatnshellir, you will descend into a subterranean cavern of stalactites and stalagmites. Best part is to experience complete darkness when all lights are turned down. You see nothing and just hear the water dropping from the top of the cave. A must to visit for an adventurous experience.
