Snæfellsnes peninsula, located on the west side of Iceland, is a beautiful area offering many recreational activities for your enjoyment and attracting thousands of people every year. Some visitors come regularly each summer to enjoy the energy radiation, as they believe it to be one of Earth’s seven energy spots.
The first stop after reaching the peninsula is at Ytri-Tunga farm where you'll get a chance to spot local wildlife at the beach which is home to a seal colony and variety of sea birds.
On the way the tour will stop at Arnarstapi, a small fishing village at the foot of Mt Stapafell, where you will take a walk through extraordinary landscape along the precipitous shoreline to the small village of Hellnar where a brake will be made for lunch.
Thereafter, the tour continues to Vatnshellir lava tube cave that lies in the Snæfellsjökull National Park, close to where Jules Verne located his entrance fot the "Journey to the Center of the Earth". In Vatnshellir you will plunge into a subterranean world of stalactites, stalagmites, and strange lava formations that in the glow of your headlights form eerie shapes and shadows flickering across the walls of the cave.
Snæfellsjökull glacier is a dormant 700,000 year old volcano which attracts thousands of people each year. Some visitors assemble here regularly each summer to enjoy the energy radiation since they believe it to be one of Earth's seven energy spots.
From Vatnshellir the tour takes you to Djúpalónssandur, a tranquil, black pebbled beach that offers beautiful views out to the sea and fascinating history.
From there you will head to Grundarfjörður fishing village. Surrounded by exceptionally beautiful mountains Grundarfjörður is home to one of the peninsula's most iconic and photographed landmarks, the mountain Kirkjufell that towers 1500 ft. up from the shoreline.
Heading back to Reykjavik the last, but by no means the least attraction on the tour is the Natural Heritage Site of Gerðuberg, home to a beautiful basalt columns in impossibly geometric shapes.
