Snaefellsnes Peninsula Private 4X4 Jeep Tour
Snaefellsnes is often also called Iceland in Miniature. While it may only take one 3 hours to circumvent the whole peninsula, craters, glacier, eerie rock formations, the vast geology diversity can take you the whole day just to have a closer look at its wonders. This could also be why it was the inspiration of Jules Verne’s “Journey to the Centre of the Earth”. It’s also believed that one of seven mystical energy centers of the world is situated here, are you ready for an energy boost?

We start the day taking a northwestern direction towards Snaefellsnes peninsula. The majestic Snaefellsjokull is the main attraction of the Snaefellsnes National Park. Measuring 1446m in height, the crater of the dormant volcano is 200m. Possibly due to it’s special magnetic properties, some people believe that this is one of the seven energy centers of the world. We then make a stop at Budiakirkja (Búðakirkja) church, which is one of the landmark churches in Iceland. The distinctive black church is very popular among locals for weddings.
Moving along the south coast of the peninsula, we will make a stop at Arnarstapi. It is a humble fishing village that also used to serve as an important trading port in the past. In the summer months, we have the option take a short hike over to our next stop, the spectacular basalt rock formations at Hellnar.
We then move on to the western coast of the peninsula where we find Djupalon Bay. It is a black pebble bay with a series of oddly shaped rocks protruding from the ocean. Here you can also test your strength – there are four big stones that were used to test fishermen; Fully Strong 154 kg, Half-Strong 100 kg, Weakling 54 kg and Bungler 23 kg.
Our last stop of the day is Kirkjufell which is a beautiful symmetrical mountain that is also known as the Church Mountain. This free-standing 463m mountain is very popular among photographers.
