About

Private Snæfellsnes Tour:

The Snæfellsnes Peninsula is often called “Iceland in Miniature”. It’s the perfect blend of waterfalls, rough lava fields, black sand beaches and Icelandic folklore.


Highlights of the tour:

Berserkjarhraun lava field – created around 4000 years ago after the three surrounding volcanos erupted shortly after each other.

Kirkjufell – the most photograpged mountain in Iceland. You’ll want a picture here we promise!

Saxhóll Volcanic Crater – There’s a staircase that makes the walk to the top very easy. Nothing short of a spectacular view that awaits you at the top.

Djúpalónssandur – Breathtaking black sand beach.

Arnarstapi – Beautiful and charming fishing village with stunning rock formations and picturesque cliffs.

Budakirkja Black Church - known for its unique beauty.

Seal Colony at Ytri-Tunga – Golden-colored beach. Fun fact: Huge seal colonies can be found at this beach during the whole year and your guide will lead you to the place where you can find them.


To spice things up a bit, we can add different extra activities to the tour for you. You can choose one during the checkout process here to the right.

  • Kayak Tour: Get the best view possible of Kirkjufell, Europe’s most photographed mountain! On this 2 hour-long guided tour, you will paddle along the beautiful Icelandic coastline and have the chance to view this magnificent mountain from all angles. Along the way, there are stops at various scenic locations where you can take photos, meet some curious seals, float in the sea or just enjoy the beautiful view. We guarantee your friends will be jealous of your photos! (Only available from May to September)
  • Lava Cave: The area all around the glacier contains hundreds of lava tubes, which makes the area special for those interested in caves. The cave itself is an 8000-year-old lava tube created by a volcanic eruption from a nearby crater in the Purkhólar crater family. As the lava rushed down the hill in a lava river it began to cool on the surface, creating a crust on top of the lava river. As the eruption stopped, all the lava from underneath this crust continued to drain out. That eventually left behind an empty tube with a roof on top that gradually cooled down.
