Explore the fire-and-ice landscape of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula on a full-day, small-group tour from Reykjavik. Walk along the coast in the village of Arnarstapi, find perfect views of Snæfellsjökull, and visit black pearl beaches at the edge of the peninsula.

  • Full-day Snaefellsnes Peninsula tour from Reykjavik
  • See volcanoes, lava beaches, and cliffs
  • Enjoy a day in a pristine landscape
  • Visit scenic highlights with an experienced guide
  • Pickup and drop-off in 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.

It is a very nice tour with a very nice tour guide that goes out of his way to teach the tourists and trek various paths to show all that can be shown. The tour guide worked very hard for the group. I enjoyed it very much.
Awesome Tour!

The Snaefellsnes Peninsula has amazing views/scenery. The tour overall was very informative. My family and I took lots of great photos. This tour is a must. Highly recommend it!
This tour is a MUST DO!

A trip to Snaefellsnes Peninsula should be on top of your list. This tour was very well organized, and our tour guide was awesome. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the history of Iceland, and gave us great commentaries (I don't remember his name, but I guess it was Yohannes. He said we could call him Your Highness!! He was very funny also!) Anyhow, this trip was totally AMAZING and the scenery was out of this world and breathtaking, especially the Djupalónssandur beach and village of Arnarstapi and the walk along the cliffs. I can't recommend this tour enough; it was one of the highlights of my trip. Thank you Bustravel for such an unforgettable day.
A tour of Iceland's history
, Oct 2019
From all my stay, this was the best trip ever. The guide not only showed all that there was to see, but told about the history of Iceland and about it's historical writings. Because of that I am right now reading "Egil's saga" and loving every word of it. The tour guide pefectly blended the border between myth and reality and I saw Iceland with different eyes. I saw the trolls, I saw the berserks, I saw it all. Fantastic.
Nice if you have nothing else to do

If you like to sit on a bus all day, this is the tour for you. A stop every hour to take pictures from far away. I wish they would have fewer stops but more time per stop. the cliffs were beautiful, but we were way too far away to see the glacier.
Great experience!

Our tour guide was really great and patient with all of us, gave us enough time in each place. I hope we will have her again in one of our future tours. Thank you!

Our guide, Atli, was awesome! The trip covered the peninsula's most memorable sites, walks, and waterfalls. We had lunch at a small restaurant where the owner had just caught his "catch of the day" and his daughter, the restaurant chef, prepared it for us. Such a treat in a small fishing village!
DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. Unlike Enterprise, they will NOT pick you up!!!

I am a solo traveler and I travel all over the world for a YouTube travel show. I usually book all of my tours with Viator and never before have I ever missed a tour pick up, but this tour company claimed they came to pick me up at exactly the same time that I was sitting in the hotel lobby waiting for them to pick me up. After 40 minutes of waiting, I had the hotel concierge call to find out where they were and the woman who answered at BusTravel responded that they had been there and left because I was "not there". I had to laugh at that because there was a group of us waiting there for the tour and no buses/vans showed up during that entire time. I admit I booked this trip while I was in Iceland as a last minute excursion (2 days prior to the tour date) and I think because I was a solo traveler they simply took advantage of me. I recieved a confirmation email stating the pickup time would be between 8-8:30. I was in the lobby promptly at 8 am. I realize the alleged driver's watch could have been fast but why didn't the company call my room if they couldn't find me (this did NOT happen)? Why didn't the driver check in with the concierge or the front desk staff? This did NOT happen. The concierge spoke to them directly on the phone and confirmed no one had been in from their company. The front desk employee, Linda, also confirmed no one had been in from their company looking for me. BOTTOM LINE: THIS COMPANY STOLE MY MONEY. They refused to offer me a refund so I am now disputing the charges with my credit charge company. The company did send me an email hours later offering a replacement tour but since I was leaving the next day this was not a viable option. Please do yourself a favor and go with a reputable company like NICE TRAVEL. I booked two different excursions with them and both times they actually showed up!
