Snæfellsnes National Park
The Center of the Earth
Snæfellsnes peninsula is a beautiful area located on the west side of Iceland and offers many recreational activities.
Our first stops after reaching the peninsula are at Gerðuberg, a columnar basalt cliff in Hnappadalur valley, and Ölkelda, a natural spring of clean drinking water. We then continue around the peninsula and to the National Park. On our way we will stop at Arnarstapi and enjoy its extraordinary shores and scenery. Nature lovers enjoy the spectacular landscapes and peculiarities of the surroundings and spend time hiking and bird watching along the precipitous shoreline where it is quite common to see seals.
We continue our journey through the National Park where you can find many beaches and amazing bird life. In this area there are many signs of ancient eruptions from the volcano with various lava formations and craters.
Snæfellsjökull glacier is a dormant volcano which attracts thousands of people each year. Some visitors assemble here regularly each summer to enjoy the energy radiation, as they believe it to be one of earths seven energy spots.
Before we return to Reykjavík we visit Stykkishólmur village by Breiðafjörður bay.
