Natural wonders  

This scenic coach tour takes you through the landscape of Snaefellsnes with its sandy beaches, rocky shorelines and jagged mountains.  

We stop at Djúpalónssandur, where we’ll walk to view the intriguing rock formations. Continuing to Arnarstapi, we’ll walk from the town’s beautiful harbour along the line of the cliffs to explore, and with luck, we’ll capture photographs of the seabird colonies that thrive here. We then continue to Ytri Tunga to look out for seals.
