Snaefellsnes the magical peninsula, the Westfjords and Borgarfjordur
This is a great three day tour around the remarkable Snaefellsnes Peninsula and the less traavelled southern side of the Westfjords north of Snaefellsnes.
On our first day, we visit all the highlights, in Snæfellsnes including the tranquil fishing village of Arnarstapi, the historical fishing station of Djúpalónsandur, the magnificent rocks of Lóndrangar, viewing the powerful ice-capped volcano of Snaefellsjokull, and drive through the thriving fishing towns of Grundarfjordur and Olafsvik. The day ends at a comfortable 3 bedroom cottage on the outskirts of Stykkisholmur.
On the second day, we take the ferry across the fjord Breiðafjordur, among numerous islands, teeming with birdlife, and spend the day exploring the magnificent bird cliffs at Látrabjarg and the Red sand beach. We return to our cottage in the evening.
On the third day, we return to Reykjavik by driving through the historical area of Borgarfjord where we visit the world's largest geothermal hot spring and the lava-waterfalls Hraunfossar.
