Grundafjordur on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula

No reviews, be the first!

Grundafjordur is a town located on the 90-kilometer long Snaefellsnes Peninsula, northwest of Reykjavik. The peninsula is often called “Iceland in miniature” because in its small area you can see just about every landscape represented elsewhere in the country. In an afternoon’s drive around you’ll see glaciers, waterfalls, rocky coastlines, rolling hills, black sand beaches, a giant glacier, and tiny fishing villages. There are several towns to choose from on the peninsula, but Grundafjordur is a great option because it’s not so minuscule there’s nothing to do, yet it still has a remote feel to it.
