✔Our first stop takes us to Arnarstapi, a small fishing with a very small working harbour set amongst impressive black basalt rock pillars and coastal cliffs with a host of noisy bird colonies.

✔A little farther along the coast, we stop at the dramatic black sand beach and lava flows at Djupalonssandur.

✔Then, we'll head around the western tip of the peninsula, an area where there is literally no human population, home to several small volcanic cones before stopping at a beautiful small golden beach at Skardsvik.

✔ Passing a few small fishing villages we stop at Kirkufellsfoss waterfall with clear white waters and a spectacular view of Kirkjufell mountain, made famous by it’s unmistakable cone shape.

I really enjoyed the Snæfellsnes Costal Getaway Tour. Everything was very well organised. David was an amazing guide and excellent storyteller. His experience and knowledge about Iceland and the rest of the world is simply incredible. It was a private tour as I was the only participant on that day and we had a good time together. The weather could have been better, but you should expect all kinds of weather in Iceland at any time ;) so that was not a big deal for me. The spots (especially the amazing beaches) made me speechless very often and I took some really nice photos. Highly recommend this tour provider and really like the idea of going one step foward to improve sustainability and protect nature.

David was the most amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable! The whole trip felt like we were part of a BBC documentary. He knows so many things and is so friendly, funny and pleasant. We absolutely loved him! The trip was amazing as well and the places breathtaking! Thank you very much! We had an amazing time!
