Lineup of natural wonders

The landscape of Snæfellsnes is characterized by sandy beaches, rocky shorelines, and jagged mountains. We stop at Djúpalónssandur, Lóndrangar, and Arnarstapi, with a harbor that many consider the most beautiful in Iceland. As we follow the line of cliffs, you can observe and photograph one of Iceland’s largest seabird colonies up close.
