Overview
Explore the fire-and-ice landscape of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula on a full-day, small-group tour from Reykjavik. Walk along the coast in the villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, find perfect views of Snæfellsjökull, and visit black pearl beaches at the edge of the peninsula. Pickup and drop-off at centrally-located Reykjavik hotels.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Reykjavik, then begin the 93-mile (150-km) trip to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, a tranquil retreat from the bustling city. The first stop of the day is the village of Arnarstapi, where you’ll take a scenic walk along a row of jagged cliffs, then continue to Hellnar, a coastal village with fewer than 10 year-round residents.

Snæfellsjökull will dominate the horizon as you travel, and you’ll find stunning views of the ancient stratovolcano, which is capped with a shining glacier. Keep driving toward the lava pearl beaches of Djupalónssandur, the rock worn smooth by countless waves.

The final stop is Kirkjufell, a stunningly-formed mountain peak whose name means "Church Mountain," and looms behind the scenic waterfalls at the base. After your time at Kirkjufell, begin the return trip to Reykjavik, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.
