Would you like to enjoy the breathtaking volcanoes, glaciers and unspoiled nature of Thorsmork, the hiker’s paradise?
Visit Snæfellsnes with one of our fun local guides
and discover the picturesque landscapes around the volcano Snæfellsjökull. This area is now a National Park, but it is the setting of the Jules Verne novel “Journey to the Center of the Earth”.
There are weird basalt rock formations along the trail between Arnarstapi and Hellnar. Blowholes, birds and sheer cliffs of 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’. You can click on the map icons for pictures and details on the different locations we will visit.
