Day Trip to Snæfellsness Peninsula from Reykjavik

4 reviews
Visit the Snæfellsness Peninsula on a private day trip from Reykjavik. Enjoy western Iceland’s amazing natural scenery as you pass by sites like the Eldborg crater and Gerðuberg basalt wall. Take a short hike to Hellnar, known as a spiritual place where people often practice meditation and yoga; if you do not wish to take part in one of those activities, you may continue hiking. Other locations you’ll see before returning to Reykjavik include the coast at Dritvík and the church at Grundarfjörður.

Well done piece of interesting history and the house itself is lovely. If you like the Viking stories, this is a must.

Our tour guide took us to the museum and we had both audioguide tours of the Settlement and Egily Saga exhbits. They were really well done but both of us found the tours to be too long, too much standing around. Would have been nice to have a "skip" button for when part of the tour was less interesting or a 2x speed option. In the end we felt disappointed. Visiting at the end of many hours in the coach was perhaps not the best idea - we just wanted to get to our hotel room. The museum shop has some really nice things, prices are of course Iceland-high. If you found my review helpful I would appreciate your vote.

Thank you so much for your review. Well it is always a bit difficult to find the exact length of a very big story and maybe it is hard to concentrate after a long journey. But we receive thousands of guests every year and very seldom get this complaint. But I do hope you had a wonderful stay in Iceland. Best regards Sigridur Margret

We ate here two evenings in a row. A large, spacious restaurant with elegant furniture and fittings. The fish and the lamb were both very good, the desserts were also tempting. The local Viking beer was a good way to relieve the day's travelling.

Thank you so much for this wonderful review and generous rating. Maybe you were one of our last guests for the time being - We had to close yesterday due to Covid 19 and your comment is really heart warming. Now we will use the time for extra special cleaning - and be well prepared - can´t wait to open again and greet our customers anew. Best regards Sigridur Margret

The self guided tour was informative and several of the exhibits were very cool. A tad spendy for the price..as it is self guided.
