Discover Iceland's Western
Snaefellsnes Peninsula


The long and narrow Snaefellsnes Peninsula is one of the Iceland’s wildest regions. Most of the peninsula’s ports are gathered on the northern shore in the bay of Breidafjordur, that contains about 2500 islands and islets: explorers take note! Even though we haven’t explored each and every one of them, we can tell you that they are magnificent even seen from the shores. Your local expert will recommend you the nicest little fishermen’s villages to visit. If you wish to visit other places, do bare in mind that most of our itineraries include several regions to visit in Iceland.

Vikings are Welcoming : )

Although descending straight from the Vikings, people in the Snaefellsnes Peninsula are very warm and welcoming! You will be able to live a day in the authentic Iceland and perhaps even have a beer with Icelanders in the local pub! With landscapes full of colours and contrasts, the rural plains of the coastal region stretch to the feet of some inhospitable looking volcanic mountain ranges. You may feel like you’re walking into the Lord of the Ring’s famous Mordor at some point – yet you will also be able to stroll into The Shire-like little hills – as green as they get! Lands saturated with mystery, Snaefellsnes keeps the memories of many legendary heroes alive, who once came to live in Icelandic epics and legends.
