8:30 AM

After booking, the operator will contact you about pickup time.

After Reykjavik hotel pickup, hop inside your climate-controlled Super Jeep, a 4x4 specially equipped to tackle Iceland’s rugged terrain. Meet your group of no more than six passengers, and then enjoy the views of the stunning west coast as you travel north to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula.

Hear about this untouched peninsula, immortalized by Jules Verne in his novel, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, from your guide, and learn about its Viking heritage and folk tales, beloved by Iceland’s artists, writers, and musicians.

On arrival, enjoy a comprehensive tour of the peninsula’s scenic highlights, and quaint towns and villages. View Snæfellsjökull, the towering, snow-covered volcano on the peninsula’s tip. Take photos of the rock formations here, and watch for kittiwakes as your guide explains how Verne imagined the volcano’s crater as the entrance to the earth’s center.

Pause at Skarðsvík beach to admire its golden sands and cliffs, and drive through folklore-steeped Lóndrangar to see its basalt pinnacles that look like a seaside rock castle, and rugged cliffs frequented by puffins and fulmars.

Stop for photos at Búðir, where a tiny church stands picturesquely against Snæfellsjökull volcano, and visit the villages of Hellnar and Arnarstapi, tucked among basalt mountains and connected by a spectacular coastal road that winds past rock formations.

Keep your camera ready, too for the harbor town of Grundarfjörður, set beneath Mt. Kirkjufell, a stunning, cone-shaped mountain replete with waterfalls that’s one of Iceland’s prettiest spots.

You’ll also visit Stykkishólmur, one of Snæfellsjökull’s most charming towns, and known for its environmental sustainability. Admire the pastel-hued buildings, see the well-preserved traditional houses in the center, and take in the surrounding coastline, home to colonies of seabirds.

After a day’s exploring, return to Reykjavik where your trip ends with a hotel drop-off.

A beautiful area

Our guide took us around the peninsula as advertised. He was kind and informative. The trip was beautiful. As nonsmokers, we will say that there was a little too much vaping (always outside the vehicle) for our liking going on all day long.

Just returned from a week in snowy Iceland, the highlight of which was this tour! We were lucky enough to have Adam and the Jeep to ourselves for this all day tour and it was definitely an experience we wont forget. Lava fields, volcanoes, golden beaches, glaciers, waterfalls and a fab walk through a snow covered lava field this tour had it all and was made all the more beautiful by the weather. Adam was friendly, knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. The route was well planned with many stops along the way but we were told early on that if we saw anything interesting he would happily stop. He suggested a walk through a coastal lava field, had walking poles ready for us to use and hot tea and coffee waiting on our return. On the way home, having learnt that out Northern Lights Tour had been cancelled a few nights earlier, he constantly checked the forecast and even stopped a few times so we could get out and see if there was anything showing this was a complete bonus and very generous as we had already been on the road for over 10 hours! This is a long tour but worth every penny. We did not see many tours offered for the Snaefellsnes Peninsula which is such a shame as it is a stunning area and well worth the extra driving time outside of Reykjavik. We did several other tours South Coast and Golden Circle by minibus and standard coach and this was the best one by far we wished we booked it all through Try Iceland! Fully recommend you book through Try Iceland Tours you wont be disappointed!
