Snæfellsnes National Park | Guided Tour

Explore the remarkably diverse Snæfellsnes area, with black beaches, volcanoes, glaciers and lava fields

11 Hours
What to expect
As Jules Verne's timeless classic Journey to the Centre of the Earth begins in Snæfellsnes, so will our adventure. It is a place of great historical importance and captivating landscapes. Black sand beaches, formidable cliffs, regal mountains, volcanic craters and Snæfellsjökull glacier are just a few of the attractions we'll see during the trip.
On our way to Snæfellsnes National Park we'll meet some of Iceland's local wildlife at the beach, which is home to a seal colony and a variety of seabirds. Before entering the national park we'll stop for a visit in the small village of Arnarstapi where we enjoy lunch by purchase at a charming little café by the seashore. Then we take in a few more sights, like the black-pebble beach Djúpalónssandur, the world-famous mountain Kirkjufell and Berserkjahraun lava fields. Snæfellsnes is a region rich with geologic and historic significance, made all the more enjoyable when you have someone who knows the ins and outs of the area and has some great stories to share.

I am so glad I didn't read any reviews prior to booking! It seems there may be a little issue with their airport transfer service but read this review if you are planning any day trips with them! We chose this tour company because they had a pick up/drop off service to hotels on the outskirts of the city centre, which was perfect for us. We were given a pick up time and a small minibus took us to their main depot to catch a larger bus to start our trips. The first trip we took was the South Iceland And Black Sand Beaches. This was a full day trip but our 2 children (5 and 3) managed this easily as the stops were set out so well over the day. I will not spoil the experience and say everything you will see but it is well worth it! The second trip we took was the Golden Circle And Secret Lagoon. Please pay the extra to go to the Secret Lagoon as it is a very relaxing end to the day (there is an allocated 2 hours at the Secret Lagoon which is a perfect amount of time)! Their transport services are so slick....buses always waiting to transport you and people who had seperate aspects of their day booked had transport ready and waiting for them. The tour guides we had were AMAZING....they were hilarious and informative and they made our children feel so special and included. We spent this time in Iceland for our 10th wedding anniversary and these tours were a brilliant way to see some incredible things! Children under a certain age are free and I think the cost of the adults was extremely reasonable!
