Today you can have the chance to explore Borgarfjördur area and Reykholt, one of the most important historical places in the country and visit the Snorri-Museum. The beautiful waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafoss. Next to the Hreðavatnsskáli lies the ring krater of the extinct Grábrók Volcano, the climb up there is tiring, but the view is splendid. You continue the travel to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. The main attraction of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula is the Snæfellsjökul glacier. Even today, it is said to have magic powers. In Jules Verne’s novel, “Travels to the Center of the Earth” the glacier is the gate to a subterranean path. Overnight in the Snæfellsnes area for 2 nights

 

SNÆFELLSNES

In Búðir on the southern coast of the peninsula lies Iceland’s ‘Copacabana’.  A beautiful church surrounded by a small cemetery hovers above the golden sand dunes and the background of the snow covered Snæfellsjökul glacier. The fishing village Arnarstapi is known for its basalt coast and a picturesque harbor.  A 2.5 km long street leads you relatively quickly to the “Baðstofa” (bathhouse) cave of Hellnar, also set on an interesting basalt coast. Next, the bird cliffs of Lóndrangar:  these peculiar rock formations can be seen from the main road but you can also drive down to Malarrif and take a short hike from there to the rock formations and back. Atlantic puffins, razorbills, kittiwakes and many bird species invite to a further break.  On the west side of the peninsula a 2.5 km street veers off to Dritvík. Here a foot path leads to the sea. From there a 1 km long hike takes you to he no longer populated village Dritvík, where only the foundations of the houses remain. There is also a beautiful cave called Vatnshellir where you can go on guided tours.  You will find Kirkjufell Mountain by the town of Grundarfjörður, which is one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland.
