Have two unforgettable days by going on a tour of West Iceland. During this trip, you'll explore the grand Snæfellsnes peninsula and the remarkable Borgarfjörður fjord. Enjoy the Icelandic wilderness by checking out its breathtaking waterfalls and the most powerful hot spring, and take a glance at its wildlife and the country's exciting history.

Your trip will start from Reykjavik, where at 9:00 a.m., you'll be picked up from your chosen pick-up point. Please note that the whole pick-up might take up to 30 minutes.  

You'll start your trip along Snæfellsnes Peninsula by visiting Borgarnes village, famous for its rich Viking history. Next, you'll see one of the most "photogenic" Mount Kirkjufell. The place is known to have a breathtaking landscape with a cone-shaped mount and a waterfall next to it. No wonder this is where the TV show Game of Thrones was filmed. 

Next on your agenda follows the town of Grundarfjörður, where you have some time to rest and have a relaxing lunch. 

After lunch, you'll make your way to the village of Arnarstapi with a short stop at Búðir hamlet. Arnarstapi is the home of Gatklettur – a massive eroded stone arch. What awaits you next is beach time. You'll make your way through Djúpalónssandur gold-sand beach, where the remains of a shipwreck from 1948 can still be found. Here you can also try your strengths in attempting to move some lifting stones – an activity of the past that used to be liked by fishermen. 

Formed 8,000 years ago, Vatnshellir Lava Cave is your next big attraction. The treasure of Snaefellsjokull National Park, the cave, will make you feel like you're descending to the earth's center, just like in Jules Verne's novel, A Journey to the Center of Earth. Please keep in mind that this attraction is optional. If you don't want to continue with this attraction, you can spend your time checking out the visitor center and the lighthouse at Malarrif. You can also go to Lóndrangar rock cliffs if there's a spare minute left. 

Your first day traveling around the west of Iceland will end at Hellissandur Adventure Hótel.

Day Highlights
  • Borgarnes village
  • Mount Kirkjufell
  • Arnarstapi fishing village
  • Djúpalónssandur beach
  • Vatnshellir cave (optional extra)
  • Guided tour in minibus
  • Visit to all highlights of the day
  • Accommodation in a hotel

Your second day of exploration will start after breakfast with a trip to Ytri-Tunga Beach. This golden-sand beach is famous for being the perfect place to watch seals. Next on your agenda are two beautiful attractions: Glanni waterfall and Grábrók volcanic crater. Here you'll have plenty of time to walk around and even have some time for coffee. 

Hraunfossar is a waterfall in Iceland that's quite exceptional because its water flows from beneath lava. This will also be your lunch spot, so you'll have enough time to soak in all the natural charm you'll be surrounded by. 

After lunch, you'll enter the Reykholt area, also known as the home of Snorri Sturluson – Icelandic historian, poet, and writer. Near this historically significant area is where Deildartunguhver hot spring is located. Recognized as the most powerful hot spring in Europe, it's a must-visit place. 

To have fully experienced Icelandic nature, you'll also visit Sturlureykir horse farm, where you'll get to see these graceful animals and see what the first farm that has been heated by the energy of a hot spring looks like. 

Your trip will finish around 6:00 p.m. with your return to Reykjavik.
