You'll start your day from your chosen pick-up location in Reykjavik at 9:00 a.m. Please note that the whole pick-up might take up to 30 minutes.
Your first stop will be Borgarnes – a village known for its fascinating Viking history. Next on your agenda, you'll be greeted by Mount Kirkjufell, located north of Snæfellsnes peninsula. Not far away from the mountain is a waterfall that makes the whole landscape look so spectacular. Because of its surreal view, this is the place where the TV show Game of Thrones was filmed.
After a morning filled with beautiful views and good emotions, you'll arrive at Grundarfjörður. In this town, you'll have some time to take a break and have a delicious lunch.
After lunch, you'll continue your trip to Arnarstapi with a short stop at Búðir. Arnarstapi is a fishing village known for its impressive eroded stone arch called Gatklettur. What follows next is a beach like no other – Djúpalónssandur. What makes it so different? It's black sand shores. Here, you'll get time to admire the beauty of the beach by going on a short hike along the coast. On your way, you'll also get to see the mysterious remains of the shipwreck that happened in 1948. Or, if your strengths allow it, try moving some of the lifting stones, as it was done by fishermen back in the day.
Vatnshellir Lava Cave is one of Snaefellsjokull National Park's gems. Going to this 8,000-year-old cave gives you a rare chance to feel like a character from Jules Verne's novel, A Journey to the Center of Earth. Please note that this attraction is optional, so if you decide not to attend the cave, you can spend your time at the Malarrif visitor center and its lighthouse. If there's some extra time left, you can also visit Lóndrangar rock cliffs.
Your first day will end at Hellissandur Adventure Hótel, where you can rest and prepare for the next day.
