Snaefellsnes Peninsula Classic Day Tour from Reykjavik

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet a driver at your hotel in Reykjavik, then begin the 93-mile (150-km) trip to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, a tranquil retreat from the bustling city. The first stop of the day is the black sand beach of Djupalónssandur, where the rock worn smooth by countless waves, to learn about its rich history.

    Then drive to Kirkjufell, a stunningly-formed mountain peak whose name means "Church Mountain," and looms behind the scenic waterfalls at the base.

    As you drive, Snæfellsjökull will dominate the horizon as you travel, and you’ll find stunning views of the ancient stratovolcano, which is capped with a shining glacier. Stop at the Londrangar viewpoint to admire the rock formations.

    The final stop is the village of Arnarstapi, for a scenic walk along a row of jagged cliffs. Then begin the return trip to Reykjavik, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

    This may be the highlight of my entire iceland trip because of the tour and our amazing guide Howser. He’s one of the best guides I’ve ever had from my years of traveling. He’s pretty much a walking encyclopedia and his stories are all entertaining. He has a soothing voice too

    I’m not sure how all of these reviews aren’t 5/5 stars! What an amazing day!!! Our bus, (with WiFi and power outlets) was super Comfy. Our guide, Atli, really went out of his way for us and made sure to include all of the historical and interesting facts about each stop we made.

    I had the most amazing day (11/10/19) on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula Tour. Our tour guide Howser was absolutely brilliant and I loved all the mystic sagas he told us. We also had a fantastic driver, Christophe. The whole day was so well organised and we saw Kirkjufellsfoss

    Do not waste your time or money on this tour. It is 99% sitting on a bus with no sightseeing stops. Very disappointed. Again spend more time on southern coast. This was a waste of a day.

    Response from Bustravel-Iceland, Guest Relations Manager at Snaefellsnes Peninsula Classic Day Tour from Reykjavik

    I think you have left this review for the wrong company (maybe Arctic Adventures given the title of your review?). Our Snæfellsness is one of our most popular tours with extremely positive feedback. We make multiple stops on this tour with the highlights including: Kirkjufellsfoss, Kirkjufell, Djúpalónssandur, Lónsdrangar and Arnarstapi. This tour includes famous waterfalls, black beaches, a glacier and quaint fishing villages. The peninsula is often called the 'hidden gem of Iceland' given that so much can be seen in such a small area. I'm sorry that you did not enjoy your time in Snæfellsness, and I ask that you direct your review to the relevant company who operated your tour.
