Small-Group Day Trip to Snaefellsnes National Park
Snaefellsnes National Park tour from Reykjavik - personalized experience in small groups. This fascinating journey is culminating right about the halfway point at the mighty 1 450 meter Snæfellsjökull volcano glacier - Jules Verne made it famous in his novel "Journey to the Center of the Earth''.
After crossing the Hvalfjörður through a 6 km underwater tunnel, you will visit small towns and fishing villages, see spectacular bird cliffs by the sea and beaches. In the northern side, we also stop by picturesque church-shaped mountain Kirkjufell which is accompanied by a wonderful little waterfall on the other side of the road. At Djúpalónssandur beach (may not be accessible in winter) we will allow those who feel up to it to try strength with the Stones of Trial.
The whole journey of Snæfellsnes peninsula circles around Snæfellsjökull glacier volcano which you can admire from several stops on the tour. Please note: the tour does not go on the glacier itself.
