Private Tours


Visit Snaefellsnes on a day trip from Reykjavik. This peninsula has been named “Iceland in Miniature” because many national sights can be found in this area. This includes a glacier, great ocean views, white and black sand beaches and charming fishing villages.

PT-05 Private Snaefellsnes Day Tour from Reykjavik

Early in the morning, your private guide picks you up from your accommodation in Reykjavik and you start your day by driving to the magic peninsula Snæfellsnes in the West of Iceland. You visit the Gerðuberg basalt columns. This is an impressive wall of beautiful basalt columns, forming geometric patterns in the cliffs. Then you will make a stop at the unique harbor in the fishing village Arnarstapi and have a look at the spectacular rock formations where large colonies of birds nest during summer.

On a clear day you will also see the famous volcano Snæfellsjökull. In 1864 Jule Verne wrote the classic science fiction novel about the journey to the center of the Earth that started from the Icelandic volcano Snæfellsjökull. Another highlight for today is a visit of the black beach Djúpalónssandur. The beach cannot be seen right away and you have to walk through an interesting lava field. When you exit the lava field you will find the picturesque beach covered by countless little black stones which were shaped by the ocean and the wind.

You drive all around the peninsula and you will make a short photo stop at the picturesque mountain Kirkjufell in Grundarfjörður. This mountain is probably  the most photographed mountain in Iceland and looks very different during summer and winter.
