Snæfellsnes Peninsula is one of the most beautiful areas in Iceland. Often referred to as Iceland in a nutshell for the great variety of landscape, it is a great off the beaten track region to visit with a Private Jeep Tour from Reykjavik.
First stop of this Private Snæfellsnes Peninsula Tour is Gerðuberg, a place famous for its colossal basalt columns. You will have some time to admire the huge basalt columns before we continue on our journey.
We will stop in Buðir, where a black wooden church stands surrounded by spectacular moss-covered lava fields.
We will then enter the Snæfellsjökull National Park and drive through some amazing landscapes with our comfortable 4×4 jeep. We will stop in the old fishing village of Arnarstapi, located at the foot of the mystic Snæfellsjökull glacier. This charming village offers great photo opportunities, as you walk along its spectacular sea cliffs and enjoy the view of the majestic Snæfellsjökull. The glacier is mentioned in Jules Verne’s novel Journey to the Center of the Earth as the entrance to the center of the earth itself. It is believed that the glacier has a mystical power and is one of the eight points of power in the world.
If you wish, you can join a spectacular tour to the top of the glacier, the Top of the Diamond Tour.
This tour, operated by a partner company, takes about 3 hours and it takes you to the top of the glacier on a snow truck buggy. This tour can only take place in good weather conditions and warm clothes are required even in the summer, as you will be going to the top of a glacier.
This tour is optional and it is not included in the regular tour. Prices are 9.000 ISK for adults and 7.000 ISK for children. If you would like to join this tour, please let us know at the time of booking.
Our Private Snæfellsnes Peninsula Tour will then continue to volcano craters, black beaches, lighthouses, beautiful cliffs, and the famous Kirkjufell, the most photographed mountain in Iceland.
We will drive you to hidden places you will not see on a bus tour and, if we are lucky, we will get to see some seals or even whales before our return to Reykjavik in the evening.
Comfort stops and lunch break will be made, extra time to take pictures and explore is always guaranteed on this Private Snæfellsnes Peninsula Tour.
