Join us on a fascinating journey through the mesmerizing wonders of Snæfellsnes, a region of Iceland that promises to leave a lasting impression. Prepare for an extraordinary tour where nature’s breathtaking landscapes unfold at every twist and turn.
Our adventure begins in the small village of Grundarfjörður, where your vessel is anchored, and where your tour bus awaits, ready to transport you to some of the top sites of Snæfellsnes Peninsula.
Our first destination is Malarrif, a gateway to the Snæfellsjökull National Park. Delve into the region’s rich history, geology, and fauna at the Visitors Center or opt for a leisurely stroll to a nearby black pebble beach where crashing waves and a majestic lighthouse create a mesmerizing backdrop. From here you can also enjoy a scenic view of Lóndrangar lava stacks.
Next, venture to Arnarstapi, a picturesque village nestled beneath the legendary Snæfellsjökull, one of Iceland’s most famous glaciers. Embark on a scenic walking trail along the shore, where awe-inspiring sea cliffs and extraordinary rock formations showcase nature’s artistry. We take a longer break in Arnarstapi. There are a few nearby dining options, including Samkomuhúsið, a small café with facilities and a gift shop selling traditional Icelandic sweaters and other handcrafted items.
Continuing along the winding road of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, discover the Maritime Museum in Hellissandur. Immerse yourself in the local fishing traditions and explore a turf house, gaining insights into Icelanders’ lives not so long ago.
The grand finale awaits at Kirkjufell, an iconic peak that has captured the attention of photographers worldwide. Marvel at its cone-shaped silhouette elegantly rising above the earth, with cascading waterfalls adding an ethereal touch. Game of Thrones enthusiasts may recognize this mystical location as the “arrow-head mountain”. Capture the perfect shot of Kirkjufellsfoss, the waterfall, gracefully dancing in harmony with the mountain’s grandeur.
After enjoying your time in the Kirkjufell area, you have the option of walking back to the village of Grundarfjörður, a mere 2.5 km/1.5 mi away. Alternatively, we offer a comfortable drive back to the harbor, ensuring you return in ample time to embark on your ship, with memories that will forever linger in your heart.
Our local drivers and knowledgeable tour guides will make sure you have a great time while learning about the nature and history of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula.
