What people are saying about Ólafsvík

Loved our guide who was patient with requests and stops. He gave great recommendation for lunch! In spite of running around we did not have enough time to see some of the sights on the list so I think it’s better to tour Snaefellsness in two days rather than one.

Great tour in minibus with 10 people. The guide is also the driver and tells everything worth knowing about the region over loudspeakers. Breaks and stops are well calculated.

It was very beautiful. You absolutely have to do it. We were only a group of 5 and our tour guide Jonas was able to make a few extra stops.

Many natural attractions on the trip, where you leave the small tender, so it didn't feel long despite the 12-hour duration

The whole experience was wonderful. Olie our tour hide was great.
