Красиво (нам ещё и с природой повезло), отличный маршрут, действительно "Исландия в миниатюре" (немного водопадов, гор, ледников, а главное - чудесное побережье и прогулки вдоль океана).

This was a good tour to a lovely part of Iceland. Really enjoyed seeing the seals, the volcano and crater and black beaches. However, I felt that some of the stops were rushed. In particular we would have liked more time at the Seal beach to explore both sides of the beach. Visits to the lighthouse whilst necessary to use the toilets, really were one stop too many. Facilities at the lunch stop were limited so I’d recommend taking something with you (2 cafes serving pizza soup) but was able to grab a coffee. Again would have liked more time here to explore the coast and eat! However as always Grayline looked after us and pick ups and drop offs were as organised. This is a lovely part of Iceland and different to the scenery of the Golden Circle and so is worth a look.

Itinerary

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 Kirkjufell that 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.
