Snæfellsnes sightseeing tour
These sightseeing tours of Iceland’s fascinating Snæfellsnes Peninsular is a good value adventure. As the setting for Jule’s Verne’s “Journey to the center of the earth”, the magic will also hit you from time to time as you explore the nooks and crannies of this crazy headland shaped by violent eruptions, the weather and people. The highlight is Kirkjufellsfoss, but there are amazing coastlines and lava fields to keep you busy before we get there.
Often the main stop. This fascinating waterfall complex has 2 levels and a wide variety of access points. The challenge is to include the Church mountain (Kirkjufell) in your scene.
Smaller groups are more flexible with time and professional guides will have the opportunity to spend time to assist you.
The peninsular is dominated by some large lava fields which creep down to the shore from the mountains. There is a chance to capture some great colours on the Berserk rocks.
Seasons: Running all year.
Summer: Most sightseeing tours make the most of the evening in Summer. Trips may revert to regular hours towards September.
Winter: Regular morning starts from 07.30 – 09.30 for most of the Winter.
Some of our favourite coastlines are on the Snæfellsnes Peninsular. Knowing the best view points can really help you get the shot right first time. These cliffs are also home to a wide variety of seabirds, such as kitty-wakes and guillemots and the occasional puffin. There are some amazing local restaurants in the coastal towns, plenty of chance to try some local food.
