The journey continues through the National Park where you will experience Iceland's outstanding beaches and great bird life. The magical stone, lava and crater formations have been created by ancient volcano eruptions.
Snæfellsjökull glacier is a dormant volcano which attracts thousands of people each year. The legend says that this glacier is one of the earths seven energy spots and some visitors assemble there regularly each summer to enjoy the energy radiation.
Before the tour returns to Reykjavík you will visit the charming Stykkishólmur village by Breiðafjörður bay for a short stop.
This bus tour followed the coastline and a chain of gorgeous mountains that led us to Snaefellsjokull and the National Park. Our guide was charming and the scenery spectacular. As an older woman, I appreciated the frequent bathroom stops and the chance to stretch our legs. We stopped for lunch at a small restaurant near the stunning coast, then strolled through arctic tern nesting grounds to the bluffs overlooking the ocean. While walking along the path near the edge of the bluffs, we saw a breaching orca whale. We loved the tour and were very happy we had chosen it.
I thought this tour was fantastic. The scenery is spectacular and one sees a variety of different landscapes from pleasant valleys with sheep, to lava fields, to spectacular cliffs, and the most spectacular of all, the glacier. There were only a few people on this trip so the bus was small. The trip was well designed and the guide was excellent. The tour was also very punctual about hotel pick-up. If you like beautiful scenery, the tour is very worthwhile.
