Snaefellsnes Tour by Minibus

The Snæfellsnes Peninsula in the West of Iceland comprises a world of diversity. During this day tour from Reykjavík, you will visit charming fishing towns, walk along with black and white sand beaches, see the mysterious Snæfellsjökull glacier and you will drive through impressive volcanic landscapes. It is a day full of natural highlights and you should not miss visiting this beautiful area during your holiday in Iceland.

You will get picked up from your accommodation in the morning and travel along the coastline of West Iceland in the direction of Snæfellsnes. Your first stop will be at a beach close to the charming farm Ytri Tunga. This light sandy beach is well-known for its seal colony. You need a little bit of luck but often seals can be spotted either sticking their heads up from the water or lying on the rocks just a few meters off the coast.

Next, you will visit the charming fishing town Arnarstapi. Beautiful rock formations decorate the coastline and you will have enough time to stroll along the cliffs. You will be impressed by the beautiful basalt columns, which reach inside a beautiful cave and you should also have a look at the huge sculpture of Bárður Snæfellsás. This sculpture represents the mythological figure Bárður, who is half a troll and half a man and the protector of Snæfellsnes.

Later you will visit the gorgeous black beach Djúpalónssandur. This black iconic pebble stone beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Iceland. There, you can also test yourself with stone lifting like the local fishermen did in the middle ages. At this time the beach was a busy fishing village and the four stones at the beach were used by fishermen to test their strength.

You will drive all around the peninsula and will reach the most photographed Mountain of Iceland in the afternoon. Kirkjufell Mountain rises 463 meters above sea level and is the landmark of the small town of Grundarfjörður. It is one of the most popular photography spots in Iceland (for a reason), so be sure to get a picture for your own collection!
