Snaefellsnes Peninsula: Natural Park Guided Day Tour

1. Snaefellsnes Peninsula: Natural Park Guided Day Tour

Visit Mini Iceland, or the Snaefellsnes Peninsula on this guided day tour. See everything Iceland has to offer in one trip from lava fields, waterfalls, and folklore, to seals, volcanic craters, and mountains. Learn the local legends and see a local seal colony up close and personal. Begin your trip in the local town of Borgarnes. Grab some snacks before heading to the peninsula and try to catch a peak of the ice-capped Snaefellsjokull stratovolcano. Arrive at the Berserkjahraun lava field, and learn the origin of its name. Picture next, Kirkjufell, famously known for its role on the "Game of Thrones" television show, and for being the most-photographed mountain in the entire country. Visit the neighboring waterfall, and be swept away by the magic. Climb the staircase to the top of Saxholl, a 100 meter high volcanic crater. Reach the top and be rewarded by the stunning views of this 3000 year old feat of nature. Learn local legends, and the history of the strong Icelandic ancestry. Venture into the uninhabited settlement of Djupalonssandur, and test your strength like local men used to on the beach. Head to the fishing village of Arnarstapi and witness the beautifully eroded cliffs and the sculpture of Barour Snaefellsas. Discover a deeper understanding of Icelandic history at Budakirkja, or the "Black Church." View historical artifacts from the 19th century, all thanks to a woman named Steinunn. Find yourself at last at the enchanting golden-colored beach of Ytri-Tunga. Witness a huge seal colony, laying on the rocks and enjoying the sun. Find the exact place they love to relax, and try not to disturb their nap.

Very nice tour, too bad it rained all day! The guide Andrei was very knowledgeable, he gave us enough time to visit the various attractions

Such a wide variety of activities all in one day. The black sandy beach with the small pieces a boats from the past was my favorite.

A fantastic day with a good mix of stories from the Icelandic fairy tales accompanied by magnificent views and magical nature.

Thomas was a fantastic guide! Loved the trip and the weather cleared up just in time for the beach.

Great. Lots of Icelandic history/sagas which I have enjoyed and wanted to hear.
