In between the fantastic weather and the amazing scenery we couldn’t have wished for much else - snow, ice, mountains and sea, this park has it all. The guide was knowledgable and gave loads of info without overloading us. Large tour busses are obviously more inflexible than the smaller ones - I did get the impression we stopped at scheduled stops only, where when on an other tour we took in one of the smaller busses we had some input into when we wanted to stop for pictures on top of the scheduled stops. We couldn’t. Also - and maybe that was down to the weather being so exceptionally great - I think the scenery after the last stop is actually phenomenal too, and there were no more scheduled stops (cue desperate tourists clinging to one dude of the bus trying to get a snap through the window). This could maybe be resolved by taking the cave visit out of the tour, while the history behind it is interesting, you can’t actually see a thing down there anyway. Just a suggestion :-) I was a bit disappointed we didn’t get to stop at the same viewpoint as everyone else for the beautiful mountain by the sea in the fisher village, again, less flexibility to stop with a big tour bus, or to return back after a while, and we had to go down to a port and view it from there. Overall I would recommend this tour though. Scenery wise I actually think it’s more beautiful than the south coast.

The guide explained very well the itinerary and always remembered us of what was to come and how to make the best use of our time, which is really important when in a long tour and with children

It picked up on time. I went around a lot of sights with a small number of people. The weather was hard and rainy, but the worst was, but the guidance was very nice and the best day. I also want to use it if I have the opportunity.

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.
