Exploring the historic Snaefellsnes Peninsula is like embarking upon a journey to the centre of the earth. Venturing off-the-beaten-path here can lead to great things, like Gerðuberg’s hexagonal basalt columns or Djúpalónssandur’s ancient lifting stones.
Hike steep elevations of Snaefellsnes glacier-capped stratovolcano and absorb the mist from the powerful Barnafoss waterfall.
Capture magnificent panoramas of Kirkjufell as the golden hour sets on its distinctively shaped peak. Reality sinks in and you realise this is it, this is the place, to sleep under the stars.
You sit, and you wait, intensely. Suddenly, bursts of green and flashes of red and purple bounce across the sky! The solar flare is here, and it’s the truest phenomenon your eyes have ever witnessed, the Northern Lights!
