SNAEFELLSNES PENINSULA

YOUR SUPER JEEP DRIVER AND GUIDE WILL PICK YOU UP FROM YOUR HOTEL OR ACCOMMODATIONS IN REYKJAVIK AT 8 A.M. THEN IT’S DUE NORTH, THROUGH THE MAIN TOWN OF WESTERN ICELAND AT BORGARNES. WE HEAD WEST NEXT, ONTO THE BEAUTIFUL MULTI-COLORED TERRAIN OF THE SNÆFELLSNES PENINSULA.

The western tip of the peninsula is the newly designated national park, including the Snæfellsjokull glacier and stunning coastal beaches and cliffs. We will visit a view point in the foothills of the glacier, made famous in the novel Journey to the Center of the Earth penned by French novelist, Jules Verne.

Buðir, meaning “shops,” was the old trading post of the area many years ago. What remains today are almost invisible ruins of this formerly vibrant trading post.

We’ll stop for coffee at the Buðir Hotel, one of the most popular country hotels in Iceland and often used as a remote meeting place and hideaway for Icelandic and foreign celebrities. You never know whom you might run into!

We’ll go down to the tiny village at Arnarstapi to see the beautiful sea cliffs and views in this area. There is a scenic 2.5 kilometre walk from Arnastapi to Hellnar, which you are also free to enjoy.

We’ll be visiting the small settlement of Hellnar, a town practically sitting below the glacier at the ocean’s edge. Seabirds and cliffs dominate the area. During summer, lunch stop 8 not included ) at the Fjöruhúsið Café located in a great warm spot near the beach. From here you’ll enjoy amazing views and hear some intense birdsong!

Then we’ll enjoy some time on the beach at Djúpalónssandur, but rather than swimming, we’ll collect stone pebbles or naturally polished lava stones at the surf’s edge. Our last stop is Ólafsvík, a weather-exposed fishing village. Your busy day comes to a close back at your starting point!
