    Stop At: Troll Expeditions, Fiskislod 45-G, Reykjavik 101 Iceland

    Pick up from your accommodation or closest bus stop in Reykjavík. The pick up can take up to half an hour.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Kirkjufell Mountain, Road 54, Grundarfjorour 350 Iceland

    This iconic narrow mountain has become the landmark of Snæfellsnes in recent years. It became famous after being presented as the “Arrowhead Mountain” on Game of Thrones. The erosive powers of the glaciers during the last ice age about 12,000 years ago gave this mountain its shape. Due to this unique look, it is one of the most photographed sights in Iceland.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Kirkjufellsfoss, Grundarfjorour Iceland

    Just across Kirkjufell mountain you will see the beautiful waterfall Kirkjufellsfoss which completes your perfect shot of the mountain.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Búðakirkja, Garðsbrún 6, Höfn í Hornafirði, Iceland

    On the south coast of the peninsula, there’s a village with only a hotel and a tiny black church called the Búdakirkja that sits alone among a field of lava rocks. Búdakirkja was built on the spot in 1703 and reconstructed in 1987 after a claim by a single member that lobbied to have it back. It has an historic graveyard, a bell and chalice from the time it was erected. It is a listed building, owned by the National Museum of Iceland, but it is in the care of the Búdir parish. Without a doubt, this picturesque chapel has a romantic air about it and is a real attraction to the site

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Ytri Tunga Beach, Arnarstapi Iceland

    This tiny fishing village has picturesque coastal cliffs which derived from glowing magma hitting the wild waves of the Atlantic. Known in Iceland as the most beautiful harbor of the country. Thousands of years later erosion has formed beautiful stone arcs and a remarkable marine geyser. Enjoy a walk along the coastline while your guide tells you all about Bárður, half-man half-troll, and his misdeeds in the area.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Ytri Tunga Beach, Arnarstapi Iceland

    Ytri-Tunga is a sandy beach that has a little secret hidden away down by the sea, behind the farmhouses… a seal colony! Seals love to spend their time on the rocks of this beautiful beach. They are friendly and curious and will climb up on the rocks for you to spot them from a distance.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Londrangar Basalt Cliffs, Roadnumber 574, Hellissandur, Snaefellsbaer 360 Iceland

    The Lóndrangar are a pair of rock pinnacles in Iceland and are remnants from a bigger crater which has mostly eroded away. Looming over the entire southern coastline, Lóndrangar, a set of 75-meter high basalt pinnacles set the tone for what’s to come. They host a variety of seabirds, northern fulmars and puffins, and others.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Djupalonssandur Beach, Utnesvegur, Hellnar Iceland

    A beach of black volcanic sand and stones where for centuries Icelandic fishermen rowed out to the fertile fishing grounds of the Atlantic ocean. Still today we find the so-called “lifting stones” which fishermen of yore used to test out their strength and prove themselves worthy of the physically straining life of Atlantic rowboat fishing. You can try to lift them yourself! In 1948 a British fishing trawler stranded on the sand reefs of Djúpalónssandur. Five men perished while 14 were rescued by local rescue squads. The remains of the ship are still there, strewn across the beach as an eerie reminder of the awesome power of nature.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Saxholl Crater, Route 574, Snaefellsbaer Iceland

    Formed over 4,000 years ago, this volcanic crater has now been made accessible via an iron staircase giving you the option of hiking it. The hike is not too challenging and gives you a 360° view of the lava fields with Snæfellsjökull glacier looming over.

    Duration: 40 minutes
