Snæfellsnes Peninsula Full Day Private Tour - Up to 9 passengers
On this full-day private tour, you will see everything this volcanic Island has to offer. Basalt columns, black sand beaches with breaking waves, waterfalls, craters, volcanoes, a glacier, lava fields, and charming fishing villages. A whole day’s adventure, full of volcanic formations and memorable places to stop at.
The volcano Snæfellsjökull – a stratovolcano like Eyjafjallajökull – is the king of this tour. Its cone shape is quite clear as it stands out furthest west on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. It became world famous in Jules Verne's novel “Journey to the Center of the Earth” in 1864. It last erupted about 1,700 years ago and is still an active volcano.
As you travel to the west you see mountains made in hundreds of different eruptions throughout millions of years. Carved by giant glaciers so you can read their story on the mountainsides, layer by layer – line by line. In between beautiful layers of recent lava covered with soft moss.
And as this is a private tour, of course, we can customize it according to your wishes. Just send us an email about your wishes and our knowledgeable, local guide will try to find a way to fit them into the itinerary.
