Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Snæfellsnes is a beautiful peninsula located on the west side of Iceland. The stories of the hidden powers of Snæfellsjökull glacier have traveled the world.

The tour takes you to Djúpalónssandur; a tranquil, black-pebbled beach that offers beautiful views out to the sea and fascinating history.

Enjoy the sight of Kirkjufell, a mountain known for its beauty and unique symmetric shape, and probably the most photographed mountain in all of Iceland.

Travelling through the Snæfellsnes peninsula and Snæfellsjökull National Park you will experience the small village of Arnarstapi and the dramatic landscape of Hellnar where you can enjoy lunch at a sweet café by the shore (lunch not included).

With some additional stops along the route we hope you’ll feel the magical influence of the Snæfellsjökull glacier.

Incredible tour! I never would have been able to pack in as much as our guide did. Very long day, but got to see any number of different attractions in snaefellsnes. Our guide was fantastic! Set expectations, was welcoming, and built in ample bio/coffee breaks. The pickup from a central bus stop was easy enough too. Would recommend this tour to anyone going to Iceland!

This was the tour I knew the least about when I booked it and I'm so glad we went. The experiences at the black sand beach, walking along the cliffs at Arnarstapi, the mountains and waterfalls at Kirkjufell, I could go on and on. The tour made the perfect number of stops and our tour guide Elli was lovely. I should note that we were lucky to have the most beautiful sunny day, so I'm sure that contributed to our experience.
