Itinerary

Our adventure starts by driving through the mountains that separate Reykjavik from the south. You’ll be treated to breathtaking views of lava fields, distant peaks, and geothermal plants releasing steam.

Borgarnes

Borgarnes village and Hafnarfjall mountain in west Iceland
On the route to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, we’ll make our way through the stunning town of Borgarnes, nestled amidst a fjord and surrounded by panoramic mountains. Notably, Borgarnes holds historical significance as one of the primary settlements of the Norwegian Vikings upon their arrival in Iceland.

Kirkjufell and Kirkjufellfoss Waterfall

An iconic slender mountain, known as Kirkjufell, has claimed its fame as the beacon of Snæfellsnes in recent years, owing to its portrayal as the “Arrowhead Mountain” in Game of Thrones. Carved by the relentless forces of glaciers during the last ice age, this picturesque mountain stands as one of Iceland’s most photographed attractions. Adjacent to it lies the elegant Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall, forming the perfect snapshot of natural splendor. Our expert guides know the best vantage points to capture these moments.

Búdakirkja, the Black Church of Búdir

Búðarkirkja black church in Búðir Snæfellsnes
On the southern coast of the peninsula rests a quaint village boasting only a hotel and a modest black church known as Búdakirkja. Isolated among a field of lava rocks, this historical structure, initially built in 1703, was reconstructed in 1987 following an impassioned request. Adorned with a historic graveyard, a bell, and a chalice from its early days, this preserved site remains under the care of the Búdir parish, adding a touch of enchantment to the landscape.

Arnarstapi Fishing Village, Hellnar & Arch

Amidst the rugged coastal cliffs shaped by ancient magma meeting the tempestuous Atlantic waves, lies the charming Arnarstapi Fishing Village, renowned as one of Iceland’s most picturesque harbors. Erosion over millennia has sculpted remarkable stone arches and a striking marine geyser, creating a captivating narrative around the infamous Bárður, half-man and half-troll, and his legendary exploits in the region.

Ytri Tunga Beach and Seal Colony

Concealed along the sandy shores of Ytri-Tunga, a delightful surprise awaits— a lively seal colony basking on the rocks, a sight to behold. These friendly creatures often venture close, offering a delightful opportunity to observe their playful antics from a distance.

Lóndrangar and Basalt Cliffs

Lóndrangar in Snæfellsnes Peninsula
Lóndrangar, a pair of imposing basalt rock pinnacles, stands as the remnants of a once-great crater, now a striking testament to the forces of nature. These magnificent 75-meter-high structures dominate the southern coastline, serving as a haven for various seabirds, including northern fulmars and puffins, creating a vibrant display of wildlife.

Djúpalónssandur, Beach of Black Volcanic Sand

Djúpalónssandur black sand beach in Snæfellsnes peninsula
Djúpalónssandur unveils a mysterious beach shrouded in black volcanic sand and stones, bearing witness to the toil of Icelandic fishermen who braved the Atlantic in search of bountiful fishing grounds. Echoes of the past resonate through the infamous “lifting stones,” remnants of a bygone era when strength was a measure of survival. Meanwhile, the haunting remnants of a stranded British fishing trawler in 1948 serve as a poignant reminder of nature’s indomitable power, strewn across the beach as a somber memorial.
