Full-day Snaefellsnes Peninsula tour from Reykjavik
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.

We have visited many beautiful places: a couple of amazing beaches, lava field, waterfall, cliffs etc.
Must-see for photographers!
Special thanks to our guide Snow - a very kind person, with deep knowledge and love for Iceland and people - and with a good sense of humor :)
A definite highlight of Iceland-An experience not to be missed
Our Guide Yona (not sure of spelling) lol- was super-energetic,fun and informative. The area itself is breathtaking. The best way to see it is with this company!!! Hands down
The places of interest was mesmerising. The tour guide was marvelous - knowledgable, accommodating, and most importantly allowing us ample time at each spots to appreciate its wonders. Highly recommended!!!
The trip was beautiful even though the weather wasn’t the best. Our guide spoke to the history and mythology of Iceland as we approached each stop that corresponded. They also went out of their way to take us off path to give better photo opportunities.
WHAT AN AMAZING DAY!!! Our bus was small, comfortable and the pick up process was seamless. Our guide, Ice Man, was very knowledgeable and took great care of us. I would highly recommend this tour. The sites could not be beat and it was great someone else was in charge of the driving :
