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. On the west side of the peninsula, a 2.5 km street veers off to Dritvík. Here a footpath 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. Snæfellsnes is popular destination for the northern light hunters.
