The epic day begins when we pick you up in Reykjavik. Together we will be heading on a journey of dramatic landscape and endless visual adventures. We'll make a quick stop giving you a chance to snack up for the trip ahead.
On Snaefellsnes peninsula, we will make our way through the dramatic lava field of Berserkjahraun. According to Viking legends from the pagan times in Iceland, this is the place where two Swedish "berserkers“ forged Iceland‘s first road. Over to the south side of the peninsula through a rural highland pass.
Our first highlight will be one of the best ones, every photographer’s dream - the epic "arrowhead" mountain Kirkjufell, at the northern side of Snæfellsnes peninsula. Rising 463 meters out of sea this idyllic landmark stands tall above the fishing village.
After soaking in the view of this outstanding natural treasure and its beautiful waterfalls, we'll continue along the coast of Snæfellsness.
Our next stop will be the dramatic black pebble beach of Djúpalónssandur which offers astonishing views of the sea and here your guide will tell you fascinating stories of shipwrecks that lie on the beach.
Next, we will visit another, even smaller fishing village, Arnarstapi. There are few places in the world as charming as this location and here we will take a walk to the scenic coastline. While in town, you'll have the opportunity to visit Miðgjá stone bridge, a natural rock arch off the coast.
Just east of Arnastapi, we'll stop to admire Búðakirkja, the 19th-century church and then head to see some cute seals at Ytri-Tunga.
Before arriving back at the capital, we'll make another shortstop in the town called Borgarnes, where you can get a good Icelandic hot dog. Finally, we will drop you off at Reyjavík, allowing the day's magic to sink in.
