Your journey begins in Reykjavik, where you'll be picked up at 9:30 a.m. from your chosen pick-up point. Please be aware that the entire pick-up process might take up to 30 minutes.
Your first stop is the village of Borgarnes, renowned for its rich Viking history. From there, you'll proceed to the fascinating Gerðuberg basalt columns, a natural wonder that showcases the beauty of Iceland's geological formations.
Next, you'll head to Ytri Tunga beach, a golden-sand haven known as the ideal spot for seal-watching. The serene ambiance and the playful seals will surely captivate your heart.
Your journey continues with a brief stop at the quaint Búðir hamlet before reaching the picturesque village of Arnarstapi. Here, you'll witness the grandeur of Gatklettur – a massive eroded stone arch.
Following Arnarstapi, you'll delve into the depths of the Vatnshellir Lava Cave. Formed 8,000 years ago, this treasure of Snaefellsjokull National Park will make you feel as if you're embarking on a journey to the center of the Earth, reminiscent of Jules Verne's famous novel. For those who opt out of the cave exploration, the visitor center and the lighthouse at Malarrif await, and if time permits, a visit to the Lóndrangar rock cliffs is highly recommended.
Your day concludes with a visit to Djúpalónssandur, a golden-sand beach where remnants of a 1948 shipwreck still lie. Test your strength with the traditional lifting stones, once favored by fishermen to showcase their prowess.
You'll rest and rejuvenate at the Hellissandur Adventure Hótel, preparing for the next day's escapades. If you're visiting during the winter months, and the conditions are right, you will be able to witness the ethereal Northern Lights. The dance of vibrant colors across the sky is a sight to behold, a result of solar particles interacting with Earth's atmosphere.
