Full description
Driving north from Reykjavik through the Hvalfjordur tunnel and the small town of Borgarnes, you and your small group will continue north until you reach Snaefellsness peninsula. This 2-hour journey won't be wasted time - admire the gorgeous scenery out your window the whole way.

Stretching out into the ocean directly west from Iceland, this peninsula has a bit of everything that makes this country's natural landscape so iconic. There are fabulous coastal roads, small fishing villages tucked in at the base of spectacular fjords and mountains, black sand beaches and dramatic coastal cliffs adorned by bird colonies in summer. There are also surreal landscapes of lava fields and mountains offering an amazing array of geological features and even a small ice cap with glaciers.

Spend the day exploring the stunning coastline with visits to the Arnarstapi coastal cliffs of columnar basalt and during the summer season, nesting bird colonies. Along the coast, spend time exploring the black sand beaches and lava stacks at Djupalon and stop off at one of the small fishing villages surrounded by mountains and nestling in sheltered bays. Once you get to the north side of the peninsula, you'll visit a small gold sand beach (Skardsvik) that sits at the edge of a black lava field and stop to view Kirkjufell mountain and the pretty waterfall of Kirkjufellsfoss.

Throughout much of your journey around the peninsula, you'll get beautiful views of the Snaefellsjokull glacier and will be surrounded by the natural beauty of high mountains and fjords.
