Reykjavik - Snaefellsnes Peninsula and Cave exploration



With this tour, you go on a beautiful route to Borgafjörõur and Borgarnes, where you will have a short stop.

Just after entering Snæfellsnes peninsula, you will get a chance to spot the wildlife that inhabit the beach. After that, you will visit the idyllic Arnarstapi village, where you will take a stroll to view the unusual landscape along the shoreline, before you continue the trip the Hellnar. In Hellnar you will have a short break for lunch, before continuing to the Vatnshellir lava tube cave, located in the Snæfellsjökull National Park.
While exploring Vatnshellir, you will see a variety of stalacites, stalagmits and unique lava formations. After the lava tunnel, the tour continues to Djúpalónssandur, a silent and black-pebbled beach, offering magnificent views over the sea. The trip continues past landscapes to the north coast of Snæfellsnes peninsula to a small fishing village, called Grundarfjordur.

Out of the Grundarfjörður route, big lava fields can be found. The Berserkjahraun is known, because of Viking legend, telling that two Swedish “Berseks” copied Iceland’s first road.
