Snæfellsnes Peninsula Day Trip Including a Local Farm Meal

Summary

Join us as we head west on a full day magical mystical tour to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and surroundings. Countless lunar landscapes and volcanic vistas lie in store for us as we drive west out of Reykjavik and head towards the magnificent Snæfellsjökull glacier. The glacier sits atop the active stratovolcano of the same name that took centre stage in the Jules Verne sci-fi novel, ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’. You might even have spotted the ice cap glittering from across the bay in Reykjavik. The volcano is thought to house mystical powers and is considered by many to be one of the seven main energy centres of the earth, so don’t be surprised if you experience an unexplained spiritual energy flow whilst in it’s presence. This is an area is of exceptional geological beauty – craters, lava fields (some more recent than others) idyllic, hidden coves and bizarre rock formations all lie in wait to be explored and discovered. Local legends and folk stories abound and are an essential element of this multifaceted tour. The day would not be complete without an Icelandic home-cooked early evening meal along with some local interaction - so, naturally, this is also included. As are some light snacks and bottled Icelandic water. A fabulous tour that really hits the spot when it comes to observing volcanic phenomena, discovering Iceland’s dramatic coast line and experiencing a more spiritual and mystical side of Iceland.

Why take this tour?

Spend the day in Snæfellsnes National Park, often described as “Iceland in Miniature” for its diverse scenery. You’ll see the mossy Berserkjahraun and Grundarfjörður fishing village where Kirkjufell mountain rise from the green hills, surrounded by trickling rivers. Our next stop is at Djúpalónssandur, beautiful black lava stone beach to gaze at the rugged cliffs before heading on to the village of Arnarstapi. Where you have a breathtaking view to the Snæfellsjökull glacier, a famous site, primarily due to the novel Journey to the Center of the Earth, in which the protagonists find the entrance to the center of the earth on Snæfellsjökull.  The day would not be complete without an Icelandic home-cooked meal along with some local interaction
