This compact two-day tour begins with a journey to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, situated along Iceland’s west coast.
Snæfellsnes is one of the best-kept secrets of Iceland, with diverse scenery topped by Snæfellsjökull Glacier as its crowning landmark. This ancient glacier volcano has sparked human imagination for centuries, most famously with Jules Verne commemorating it in his novel Journey to the Centre of the Earth. Our optional (extra fee) guided tour will offer a chance to step into the 8,000-years-old Vatnshellir Cave and feel closer to the core of the Earth!
On Snæfellsnes exploration, you’ll have ample moments to admire towering peaks and cliffs, ghostly lava fields, black sand beaches, and traditional fishing villages. We’ll stop to snap great pictures of the famous Mount Kirkjufell and Djúpalónssandur, a black pebble beach dotted with fascinating rock formations.
To cap off the adventure, we’ll visit the impressive Gerðuberg basalt columns, forming geometrical patterns in the cliffs. Your accommodation will be at a country hotel in the Snæfellsnes area. Away from the city lights, you’ll have the best chance to spot the Northern Lights.
