There is something mystical about the Snæfellsnes peninsula with its mighty volcanic glacier Snæfellsjökull at the tip of it.

Snæfellsjökull is one of the most famous sites of Iceland thanks to the novel “A Journey to the Centre of the Earth” by Jules Verne.

According to the novel the entrance to a passage leading to the centre of the Earth can be found right there. This area is the embodiment of Iceland.

There are fishing villages along the northern coastline and the thousands of islands in the bay of Breiðafjörður, some colourful mountains, lush farming fields, large lava fields, volcanic craters and of course the mighty glacier/volcano. Occasional landings are made on the way and a refreshment/meal stop at a nice country side hotel. Journey time about 4 hours.

What do I need to bring?

Warm clothing.
