Private Tours of Snæfellsnes Peninsula
Private tours are perfect if you want to enjoy Iceland at your own pace and in all comfort. We hear your wishes and design the best private tours of Snæfellsnes, often referred to as Iceland in miniature for the wide variety of glacier-carved mountains, lava fields, black beaches, sea-cliffs and spectacular ocean views.
Our local guides will take you on a fantastic journey to explore the best places on Snæfellsnes.
We are very flexible and try to fit your preferred stops and locations in our tours but there are some places we recommend visiting.
Djúpalónssandur is one of the main attraction on Snæfellsnes. The path to the black beach cuts through wonderful rock and lava formations. A very interesting rock in this lava wonderland is Gatklettur, which makes for a fantastic picture spot. Through this rock’s hole, you can see the majestic Snæfellsjökull glacier.
The black beaches and lagoons of Djúpalónssandur are wonderful places to explore, also rich in history.
The cliffs of Lóndrangar are uniquely-formed remnants of ancient basalt volcanic dikes sticking out from the sea. From the parking lot, it is an easy walk to the view point from where you can admire this wonderful landscape of sea-cliffs and lava formations constantly eroded by the ocean.
Arnarstapi is one of our favourite places on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. This old but extremely charming fishing village is located at the foot of Snæfellsjökull and guarded by the giant statue of Bárður Snæfellsás, a legendary half man-half troll being from the time of settlement in Iceland.
On a private tour, you will have enough time to walk along the sea-cliffs and admire the spectacular stone arches and rock formations.
From Arnarstapi, a path along the coastline through a lava field leads to Hellnar, where you can see a lovely beach, interesting rock formations, cliffs and a cave whose color varies according to the natural light and movement of the ocean waves. If walking is not for you, it is possible to drive to Hellnar during a private tour.
Snæfellsjökull is one of Iceland’s most famous glaciers, where Jules Verne set the entrance to the center of the Earth in his novel Journey to the center of the Earth. In the summer, it is possible to combine your private tour on Snæfellsnes with a snow-cat tour on the glacier.
Last but not least, the world-famous Kirkjufell. This mountain is one of the most iconic places in Iceland and it was even featured in HBO’s popular series Game of Thrones. The best place to admire the mountain is from Kirkjufellsfoss, the beautiful waterfall opposite the mountain from which you can take fantastic photos.
