English commentary

The Snaefellsnes Peninsula is often called “Iceland in Miniature”, with glaciers, mountains, waterfalls, black sand beaches and an enormous snow-capped volcano all contained in one peninsula just a short drive away.

The tour will start with a pickup in Reykjavik and after a refreshment stop in Borgarnes, you’ll soon spot the highest volcano in the area, Snaefellsjokull with its magnificent snowy crown.

Snaefellsnes translates as “Snow Mountain Peninsula” and it’s the place that inspired Jules Verne to write “Journey to the Center of the Earth”.

Your own magical journey will pass many isolated farms where there are only Icelandic horses and a few seabirds for company.

Ytri-Tunga Seal Colony

Our first stop on the peninsula is at Ytri-Tunga, a charming farm with a seal colony on a nearby beach, which is golden in color rather than the usual Icelandic black sand. The seals are cute and often playful when they’re here in the summer – we’ll show you where to find them!

Black Church - Budakirkja

Then we will spend some time at the beautiful black 19th-century church of Budakirkja. This church is famous for being built by a local woman despite the church authorities not being very interested in having a church here. Nowadays, people from all over the world come here to get married!

Arnarstapi – fishing village and sea arches

The waves from the Atlantic Ocean crash just offshore from the old fishing village of Arnarstapi, which is our next stop.

The coastline here is a dramatic combination of colors, with black lava rocks and deep green and bright yellow mosses clinging to them, all set against the brilliant blues of the sea and sky.

Londrangar Cliffs

Then we will spend some time at the beautiful black 19th-century church of Budakirkja. This church is famous for being built by a local woman despite the church authorities not being very interested in having a church here. Nowadays, people from all over the world come here to get married!

Black Beach of Djupalonssandur

We’ll also take you to Djupalonssandur, another gorgeous black sand beach where the air is filled with the sounds of birds and the Atlantic waves pounding the sands. You’ll be able to walk through the lava fields on rock steps to the ocean, with the rusty remains of an old shipwreck offering a stark contrast to the black sand beach. These ruins are a memorial to men lost at sea here and should be left as they are.

Kirkjufell – the most photographed mountain in Iceland!

This is one of the most popular places for a photo in all of Iceland and major highlight of our Snaefellsnes Day Tour, as Kirkjufell (Church Mountain) rises majestically out of the surrounding green hills with its almost triangular shape, which will be well-known to “Game of Thrones” fans as the Arrowhead mountain. There are many great spots to take an extraordinary photograph here, particularly by the little waterfall – we’ll show you where!
