Snaefellsnes Junior | Minibus Tour

Tour the Snaefellsnes Peninsula – by minibus

… and discover the picturesque landscapes at the National Park along the volcano & glacier Snæfellsjökull. It’s the setting of the Jules Verne novel “Journey to the Center of the Earth”.

As we explore the coast, you’ll see weird basalt rock formations along the trail between Arnarstapi and Hellnar. Bird colonies are to be found there all year round, with seagulls, cormorants and fulmars feeding from the rich fishing grounds of the area. You’ll enjoy the cliffs made of basalt lava. One of the nicest formations is an arch or gateway located at the trail’s head name Gatklettur.

Shaped by the ocean, the glacier, and centuries of volcanic activity with lava fields, fjords, waterfalls and cute fishing villages, the Snæfellsnes Peninsula is certainly ‘Iceland in Miniature’. We’ll show you see the little black church Búðarkirkja at Búðir, take a walk along the basalt rock formations, and visit the impressive beach of Djúpalónssandur where you can see the remains of two ship wrecks, and later the volcanic neck of Lóndrangar at Malarrif. If you want, you can take the optional extra of Cave Vatnshellir (highly recommended).

Some of the other highlights are the photogenic Kirkjufell mountain and waterfall, the Fjord Kolgrafarfjörður, and the village of Stykkishólmur, which has lots of renovated period houses and a lovely lighthouse. There will be of course secrets stops as usual… “only Guide knows…”!

REVIEW: “Wonderful experience!”

“My spouse and I did the Snaefelsness tour as a small group (two couples) in late February. It was quite frankly awesome! Ori was a wonderful guide, and we were just repeatedly awestruck by the sights to which he led us.” […] Continue reading on TripAdvisor…

REVIEW: “The ONLY way to see Iceland”

I cannot say enough good things about Discover Iceland. The office was very responsive and informative while booking tours and the guides were all extremely nice, professional, and fearless when it came to the snow-covered roads in blizzard-like conditions. We had the fearless Orri and his amazing “super-jeep” Joy for two tours (Golden Circle with snowmobiles and Southern Coast) … Continue reading…
