Snaefellsnes Peninsula Tour
Snæfellsnes is a peninsula in western Iceland famous for its bird cliffs, black sand beaches, mountains, and the large glacier at its western tip. Its attractions and geological features encapsulate the diversity of the Icelandic landscape in many ways and for this reason many consider it to be Iceland in miniature. Situated well away from the Ring Road, this remote region is sparsely populated and all too often overlooked by visitors who stick to the more traveled paths.
Snaefellsnes is significant culturally as well. The landscape here has played itself in Jules Verne’s famed adventure novel Journey to the Center of the Earth and subsequent film adaptations, and filled in for the north of the wall in Games of Thrones. Iceland’s favorite mountain, Mt. Kirkjufell portrayed the Arrowhead mountain.
As well as Mt Kirkjufell, you will see the nearby Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall, the stunning Arnarstapi Bird Cliffs and stone bridge and arch, Djúpalónssandur black beach, and much more. See Búðir’s famed black church and maybe you will be lucky and sea seals at Ytri-Tunga beach.
