Why You Shouldn’t Miss This

The Snæfellsnes Peninsula consists of the most-visited tourist attractions in the country. It is teeming with glacial rivers, volcanic craters, caves, and small fishing villages that seem like they belong in a fictional medieval fantasy universe.
Kirkjufell, a mountain that saw a significant upsurge in popularity after it was featured in the TV show Game of Thrones, is shaped like the head of an arrow and rises to a height of 463 meters. It stands at the edge of the peninsula and has been the most photographed mountain in Iceland.
Djúpalónssandur was an important fishing port in the past. Although it does not serve its old purpose anymore, signs of the fishermen and their culture are littered along the coast. The 54 Kg stones here are notoriously heavy. Icelandic men would lift this stone and place it on a 3 foot ledge to prove their worth. Small fishing villages dot the entire.
peninsula. Most of these are located along the shoreline. Hellnar and Arnarstapi are two such serene villages. Arnarstapi is located at the base of the Stapafell mountain. The village is brimming with local legends that are interesting to learn. Grundarfjörður is a beautiful town situated between the sea and a mountain range. Snæfellsjökull, also known as the ‘Snowfall Glacier’, is believed to be about 700,000 years old. It can be seen all the way from Reykjavik if the the skies are clear. This is where Jules Verne ended his famous novel, ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth’.

Your Experience

You will be picked up from your hotel early in the morning. The first area of interest will be the town of Grundarfjörður and Kirkjufell Mountain. The mountain is very close to Grundarfjörður, and is a stunning sight to witness. You might also spot a few fossilized birds and fish on the beach that borders the town on one side. Click a few photos of the mountain before proceeding to the black sand beach of Djúpalónssandur. Relax for a while on this tranquil beach. You can even try and lift one of the infamously heavy ‘lifting stones’ on the beach.
The villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar are next on the agenda. Listen to fascinating tales of Bárður, a man who was believed to be part ogre and part human. Learn about the literary history of Arnarstapi and admire the well-maintained harbor near the village. If the skies are clear, you might get the opportunity to see the glacier-capped stratovolcano, Snæfellsjökull, as you travel along the southern and western perimeter of the peninsula.
