Snaefellsnes Peninsula Day Trip from Reykjavik

Snæfellsnes Peninsula Tour

The Snæfellsnes peninsula in West Iceland is a miniature version of the island. In addition to its characteristic Snæfellsjokull glacier, there are black sandy beaches, bird cliffs, spectacular mountains, and volcanic craters.

On this tour, we will stop at the fishing village Arnarstapi, the ancient fishing village Hellnar, visit Djupalonssandur beach, and pass by the iconic Kirkjufell mountain.

There are only a handful of places in Iceland where golden and pink beaches can be found, as the country is best known for its black lava beaches. In addition to stunning scenery, the peninsula is home to a number of small towns and villages that are a joy to visit.

Snaefellsjokull National Park & Glacier

Snæfellsjökull which is Snæfellsness’s main attraction is a 1446m (4744ft) dormant strato-volcano with a 200m (656ft) crater. The astonishing glacier towers over the Snæfellsnes National park at the tip of the peninsula. The glacier is known to be one of the world’s seven energy centers (chakras) and some believe it to be a meeting place for extraterrestrials.

Because of the strong energy field coming from the glacier, you can’t escape feeling re-energized after your stay there. The amazing Snæfellsjökull volcano has not erupted in the last 1800 years. The Snaefellsnes Peninsula’s communities were the first among European communities to receive the EarthCheck certification which is an international system used as a benchmark for sustainability in travel and tourism.

Ytri Tunga

The seal colony at Ytri-Tunga is a sandy beach where the seals like to hang out at. The favorable time to spot them is over the summer months of June, July, and August. You’ll have the chance to get pretty close to them by climbing the rocks.

Budir Church

The Black little church is also a popular spot to visit and photo. This historic church is located in Budir and has a small beautiful cemetery next to it. The hidden gem is great to take photos with since it is located in the lava field.

Bjarnarhofn Shark Museum

At the Bjarnarhofn shark museum, you’ll have a chance to learn all about sharks as well as take part in the popular tradition of tasting a rotten shark which is definitely an experience you want to have as a story to tell later.
