The Snæfellsnes peninsula in West Iceland is almost a miniature version of the island. Its stunning landscape has captured the attention of people all over the world.

Today you will be surrounded by black sandy beaches, spectacular glaciers and volcanic craters. We will also stop at the small fishing village of Arnarstapi, as well as the ancient fishing village Hellnar. We will visit Djúpalónssandur beach and the iconic Kirkjufell mountain as well. (B, D)

From there we head to Egilsstadir and drive along the east fjords. One of the many east fjords we will see is Stöðvarfjordur which is a settlement that began approximately one century ago. The fjord is short and open to easterly weather.

We then drive to Hofn, Hornafjordur, located on the headland between Hornafjordur and Skardsfjordur fjords. These fjords, along with the neighbouring communities, form the municipality of Hornafjordur. Settlement began late in the 19th century.

The most majestic of its several waterfalls is Svartifoss (“Black Falls”). If there´s interest, we can walk up to Svartifoss. From Skaftafell we drive via Kirkjubaejaklaustur to Vík a village east of Mt. Reynisfjall in Myrdal. It´s the southernmost village in Iceland. (B, D)

Next, the route takes us to the famous Great Geysir area with many hot springs, mud pools and geysers, of which Strokkur, the world´s most active, is likely to spout several times. Then to Gullfoss Waterfall, often described as Iceland´s most beautiful waterfall. Continue to Thingvellir, the great lava arena in a rift valley, where the Icelandic parliament met for centuries. In Thingvellir we will see the world´s oldest still-existing national parliament which was founded by the Norse settlers in 930 AD.
