Tour Itinerary

This tour takes you west from Reykjavik on a scenic route to Borgarfjörður and the village of Borgarnes where a short stop will be made for refreshments.

Shortly after entering Snæfellsnes peninsula, by Ytri-Tunga Farm you‘´ll get a chance to spot local wildlife at the beach which is home to a seal colony and variety of sea birds.

Next up is a visit to the idyllic Arnarstapi village where you‘ll take a walk to view the extraordinary landscape along the precipitous shoreline and where a break will be made for lunch.

After lunch the tour continues to Djúpalónssandur, a tranquil, black-pebbled beach that offers beautiful views out to the sea and fascinating history that lies in the Snæfellsjökull National Park, close to where Jules Verne located his entrance for the “Journey to the Centre of the Earth”.

Leaving Djúpalónssandur you‘ll travel past striking landscapes to the north coast of Snæfellsnes peninsula to Grundarfjordur fishing village. Surrounded by exceptionally beautiful mountains Grundarfjörður is home to one of the peninsula‘s most iconic and photographed landmarks, the symmetrical mountain Kirkjufellthat towers 1500 ft. up from the shoreline.

Out of Grundarfjörður the route lies across Berserkjahraun lava fields that according to Viking legends was where two Swedish "Berserks" forged Iceland‘s first road and over to the south side of the peninsula through Vatnaleið pass.

Всё очень понравилось. Удобный микроавтобус, мало людей, всё по расписанию, довезли бесплатно до дома. Экскурсовод Jon (возможно, имя следует писать не так?) отлично рассказывал и давал достаточно времени на изучение всех мест. Спасибо ему и большой привет из России:) Водитель тоже отличный, хорошо и спокойно водит. Экскурсия на полуостров Snaefellsnes - очень удачная (и маршрут, и время).

Snaefellsness Island Tagestour - tolle Naturerlebnisse

   

Vom ersten Kontakt bis zum Ende der gebuchten Tour klappte alles perfekt. Mein letzter Tag in Island war durch den Ausflug nach Snaefellsness ein schöner Abschluss einer tollen Reise.
