Join this private day tour that takes you across the diverse wonders of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, with an optional caving adventure in Vatnshellir. If you're staying in Reykjavík and wish to witness the extent of Iceland's natural sceneries, this is the excursion for you.
You'll get picked up in Reykjavík City with a private vehicle that sits but five people, guaranteeing you and your group of travel companions an intimate and personal sightseeing experience. You'll then begin your drive to Snæfellsjökull National Park, a fairytale-like wonderland located on the tip of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula in west Iceland.
The park is home to the ice-covered volcano, Snæfellsjökull, that was the setting for Jules Verne's classic novel 'Journey to the Center of the Earth'. Snæfellsnes is truly a magical place, rich in wildlife, including dozens of species of birds, and bays teeming with whales and waterfalls.
During your tour, you will, for example, stop at the small fishing village Arnarstapi, the ancient fishing hamlet Hellnar and the black pebble beach Djúpalónssandur. You'll also witness mystical volcanic craters, vast lava fields, stunning coastlines, eerie rock formations and the iconic mountain Kirkjufell.
If you're feeling adventurous, there is an option to join a caving excursion in Vatnshellir, an 8,000-year-old lava tube created by a volcanic eruption from a nearby volcano in the Purkhólar crater system.
As the lava of the eruption rushed down the hill in a red river, it began to cool on the surface, creating a crust on top. As the eruption stopped, all the lava from underneath this crust continued to drain out. That eventually left behind an empty tube with a roof on top that gradually cooled down, enabling visitors to step inside a netherworld of wonders.
Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity of embarking on a guided private day tour of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, with the option of exploring the lava cave Vatnshellir
