Description

Snaefellsnes is often also called Iceland in Miniature. While it may only take 3 hours to circumvent the whole peninsula, craters, glacier, and eerie rock formations, the vast geology diversity can take you the whole day just to have a closer look at its wonders. It’s also believed that one of seven mystical energy centers of the world is situated here, so pack up and get ready for a boost.

Start the day taking a northwestern direction towards the Snaefellsnes peninsula. The majestic Snaefellsjokull is the main attraction of the Snaefellsnes National Park. Possibly due to it’s special magnetic properties, some people believe that this is one of the seven energy centers of the world. Then it's time for a stop at Búðakirkja church, which is one of the landmark churches in Iceland. The distinctive black church is very popular among locals for weddings.

Moving along the south coast of the peninsula, it's time to make a stop at Arnarstapi. It is a humble fishing village that also used to serve as an important trading port in the past. In the summer months, you have the option take a short hike over to our next stop, the spectacular basalt rock formations at Hellnar.

Move on to the western coast of the peninsula where you find Djupalon Bay. It is a black pebble bay with a series of oddly shaped rocks protruding from the ocean. Here you can also test your strength - there are four big stones that were used to test fishermen.  

The last stop of the day is Kirkjufell, a beautiful and symmetrical mountain that is also known as the Church Mountain. This free-standing mountain is very popular among photographers.
