Explore Snæfellsnes peninsula
The West and Snæfellsnes peninsula have so much to offer. There you will find small fishing villages, Kirkjufell the most photographed mountain in Iceland, amazing coastline and rock formations at Arnarstapi, Snæfellsjökull Glacier and Löngufjörur to name a few.
If you want to join us for a tour around Snæfellsnes you can find it here. We often take a brake for lunch at Hótel Búðir or find the perfect place with a great view for an outdoor picnic. It is also possible to stop at the shark-museum at Bjarnarhöfn to learn about the history and the process of making fermented shark and of course you get to taste of this famous Icelandic delicacy.
