Tour description

Travel west to Snæfellsness on this remote journey to the center of the Earth just like in the grandiose, epic beginning of Jules Verne’s timeless novel. Journey back to a land possessing a myriad of secrets waiting to be discovered. Ancient, mangled lava fields unveil the stresses and destruction these lands once endured. Twisted, crippled, and bowed volcanic rock possessing incredible shapes and forms flare up from the earth, creating an impressive sight to behold. The tour lasts for 11 hours and includes a professional, English-speaking guide.

An ideal retreat for travelers in pursuit of tranquility. Wander beside the jagged cliffs of Arnarstapi to the beautiful arcs of Hellnar. Creeping pillars of basalt slowly rise from the unforgiving sea. A stunning backdrop to the summit of Snæfellsjökull will impress onlookers and leave you with a feeling of tranquility. This road less traveled continues to the lava pearl beaches of Djupalónssandur, peppered with smooth volcanic rock. Finish on the north side of this breathtaking peninsula at Kirkufell, seeing the glorious vistas that impart calm and invigorating positive energy from this mystical land. Enjoy complimentary hotel pickup and transfer from your centrally-located hotel or guesthouse in Reykjavik. The pickup starts at 9am, and the return to Reykjavík accommodations are around 7pm.
