Our driver, Carlos, was the most delightful and informative tour guide that made the beautiful Snaefellsness experience an excellent one. Carlos was an absolute professional, very attentive to the needs of each passenger and their safety. We felt very confident in his driving skills on the winter condition roads we traveled. The minibus was very clean, comfortable and with much appreciated heating and wifi. Carlos provided just the right balance of local lore, history (with great theatrical delivery!) and a playlist of Icelandic music. The scenery was beyond amazing and well worth the long travel time. Enjoying a home cooked meal was a wonderful part of this tour just before leaving the peninsula at the end of the day.

A day full of fascinating and varied experiences. Lots of driving, of course, but with quite a few opportunities to get out and explore on foot. It helped that we struck it lucky with the weather — and with our guide Zaydor, who was charming, engaging, considerate, and very informative. An excellent way to spend a memorable day.
