Main Description

A shuttle will pick you up in Reykjavik 30 minutes prior to departure, i.e. between 07:30 and 08:00.

Then, we take off on our adventure towards West Iceland to visit Snæfellsnes. Before reaching the peninsula you travel along the west coast through the town of Borgarnes located in Borgarfjörður Fjord. Once you reach the peninsula you will see small fishing villages such as Arnarstapi at the foot of Mt. Stapafell, and Hellnar, which has been a fishing port for almost 500 years.

Next, we bring you to Djúpalónssandur beach where you can see the remains of a ship, which was wrecked in 1948. The beach is located at the foot of Snæfellsjökull glacier which was picked by Jules Verne to be the entry point to start the "journey to the center of the world" in the novel with the same name. The 2008 movie of the same title was filmed here on location.

Finally, we visit the iconic Kirkjufell mountain, which got its name from its form, which reminds us of a church. On the drive back to Reykjavik you get to take in the west of Iceland once more.

After a long day we head back to Reykjavik where we arrive around 21:00.
