Towering volcanic peaks, windswept beaches and a staggering glacier, the Snaefellsnes Peninsula is a beautiful branch of western Iceland. Filled with magical landscapes and picturesque fishing villages, it juts out into the Atlantic Ocean and comes as an easy trip from Reykjavik.
Nicknamed Iceland in miniature, the north and south coasts are divided by a string of mountains that are crowned by the Snaefellsjokull ice cap – the region’s showstopper. We can take you on private glacial drives around its base and out to a wealth of other volcanic and coastal sights during your Iceland tour.
With such an abundance of wondrous scenery, this fascinating peninsula has become the focus for much lore and legend, with creatives such as artists, musicians and writers eternally drawn to the wild and untamed nature of this part of the world. Include the Snaefellsnes Peninsula on your Iceland tour itinerary, and we’re certain you’ll be captivated by it too.
