Jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean, the Snaefellsnes Peninsula is home to a breathtaking landscape of towering mountains and rugged lava fields, unique to Iceland. Quaint fishing villages are dotted along the dramatic coastline and some of the country’s most impressive waterfalls are found here, hidden away in this untouched region.
Although just a few hours from Reykjavik, the Snaefellsnes Peninsula is worlds away from Iceland's cosmopolitan capital city. Off the beaten track and far from Iceland's well-trodden tourist trail, this unspoiled region offers incredible hiking, while the rural setting provides the perfect opportunity to spot the Northern Lights during the magical winter months. In summer, follow scenic trails on horseback or take a boat to charming Flatey and the myriad of islands in picturesque Breidafjordur.
