What people are saying about Snæfellsnes

Great tour - entertaining guide

Our guide, Emily, was fantastic! She had a litany of interesting stories and anecdotes to share with us on this very long day. We were very fortunate to have remarkably beautiful weather, which helped enhance the experience. We had more than enough time to enjoy every stop on the itinerary, there were a sufficient number of toilet breaks and Emily very clearly communicated how long it would be in between each break. The scenery itself was spectacular - we opted not to do the optional caving experience, and instead spent time roaming around by the lighthouse, which was delightful. The west coast is very different and I recommend people take the trip to see it. I specifically recommend this tour and Emily in particular!

Wonderful scenery and fantastic expanses

Super nice trip, great guide, Jonas, nice ride in small group. It is a stressful journey because there is much to be taken on the journey and long distances to get there. Personally, I could have easily ignored the Church Mountain because the other places were even more amazing!

A fantastic day

I travelled in a small group tour. Our driver/guide was excellent. He provided information anecdotes etc. We saw all the sites listed in the tour description and had plenty of opportunities for food and rest breaks.

Epic sights and wild weather!

We had a fantastic time on this trip. Our tour guide, Olaf, was very laid back and informative. The lava cave is well worth a visit.

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