Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At:

The first stop is Berserkjahraun lava field. It was created around 4.000 years ago after the three surrounding volcanos erupted shortly after each other. The name also comes from an exciting story back from the Viking age. Your guide will tell you all about it and he'll show you the way to a secret and hidden waterfall.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Kirkjufell Mountain

The most photographed mountain in Iceland is next on our list. You probably noticed it on the TV show "Game of Thrones". It is surrounded by a beautiful waterfall. You'll get enough time to stroll around the walking paths to explore the area.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Saxholl Crater

Countless volcanic craters can be seen during the drive. Now it's time to set foot on one of the dormant craters on the peninsula. Saxhóll was created around 3.000 years ago and it is 100m high. A staircase makes the walk to the top very easy and the reward is a brilliant view over the surrounding lava fields.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Djupalonssandur Beach

Iceland is known for its black sand beaches. Djúpalónssandur is one of them and this place will definitely amaze you. Back in the day, a harbor for fishing boats could be found here and all the fishermen had to prove their strength beforehand. In order to do that, they had to lift stones of different weights. Only the strongest were able to secure a spot on one of the boats. The stones still can be found on the beach and you will have a chance to test your own strength.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Arnarstapi

The next stop will be in Arnastapi, a beautiful and charming fishing village. During the time, powerful waves eroded the cliffs and left the stunning rock formations behind that can be seen today. Also, a sculpture of Bárður Snæfellsás, the guardian of the Penninsula, can be found here.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Budakirkja

The church was build in 1703. After the Danish king decided to dismiss the church in 1819, several residents fought for the reclamation and in 1849 they got the allowance to build a new chapel. A woman named Steinunn saved some of the old artefacts and, thanks to her, we can still see them today.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Ytri Tunga Beach

We are already on our way to Reykjavik, but we will have one last stop at a beautiful golden-colored beach. Huge seal colonies can be found at this beach during the whole year and your guide will lead you to the place where you can find them.
