Snæfellsnes is a peninsula of great diversity. In fact, of all the peninsulas in Iceland, Snæfellsnes is most likely the most diverse. You could say that it is a kind of peninsula overachiever; it is not satisfied with providing travelers with some of the most attractive natural features of Iceland, merely – but attempts to incorporate allof them instead (it is referred to by some as “miniature Iceland”).
On Snæfellsnes you will not only find a beautiful view of the ocean along with a view of the multitude of bird species that decorate its cliffs, but also waterfalls, volcanic craters, lava fields, black beaches – and a glacier, Snæfellsjökull, which was featured in one of the great works of classic sci-fi literature: Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne.
Come along with us to the center of Iceland’s metaphorical heart – the Snæfellsnes peninsula.
