The Wonders of Snæfellsnes
The Snæfellsnes peninsula in the West of Iceland is almost like a miniature version of the whole country. In addition to its emblematic Snæfellsjökull glacier, you will find white and black sand beaches, bird cliffs, spectacular mountains and volcanic craters, incredibly rich trout lakes and salmon rivers, lush valleys, and unique harbours in charming fishing villages.
The stunning landscapes of the peninsula have captured the imagination of people all over the world ever since Jules Verne wrote the famous science fiction novel “Journey to the Centre of the Earth” in which the amazing Snæfellsjökull glacier is where the journey begins. Snæfellsnes continues to inspire great works of art to this day, most recently when Ben Stiller filmed parts of his critically acclaimed blockbuster “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” here, notably in the charming village of Stykkishólmur, through which the tour will take you.
