The Wonders of Snæfellsnes


An affordable and convenient way to explore the amazing Snæfellsnes peninsula – an area known for its stunning landscape, diverse bird life and breathtaking beauty.

On this tour you will hit some the highlights of Snæfellsnes like Arnarstapi, Hellnar, Djúpalónssandur and Kirkjufell mountain. There’s never a dull moment and the area is known for beautiful scenery, waterfalls in abundance and Iceland’s most photographed mountain.

This is a big bus tour. If you would rather do this tour on your own we also offer great prices on car rental, especially on short rentals (perfect for day tours out of the city). We’ve put together this Drive-It-Yourself guide to the area so you don’t miss a thing!


About this tour

This tour is fairly long and although there is plenty to see on the way, it’s not quite as action-packed as the south coast when it comes to attractions. However, if you don’t mind taking things a bit slower you will be rewarded by some of the most beautiful landscapes in Iceland.

Snæfellsjökull glacier is the crown jewel of the Snæfellsnes peninsula and people believe it has all sorts of mystical powers. It’s also where the start of the Jules Verne novel Journey to the Center of the Earth takes place and when you see the glacier and lava surrounding it, it’s not hard to imagine why this place has inspired so many.
