Located in the western part of the island, the small Snæfellsnes Peninsula is where you can see everything Iceland has to offer in one spot. If you’re a fan of Jules Verne, don't miss out on visiting Snæfellsjökull National Park. The park is named after a 700,000-year-old volcano covered by a glacier, which in Verne's novel, Journey to the Center of the Earth, was the gateway to the Earth's core.
Then, we recommend a trip to Mount Kirkjufell via the Kirkjufellsfoss Waterfall. This summit, which forms a nearly perfect triangle, was featured in Game of Thrones. For a gourmet experience, visit Stykkishólmur, the largest municipality on the peninsula. Wander among the village’s colorful houses and savor the local fish at nearby restaurants.
Discover Iceland's unique flavors with a visit Bjarnarhöfn farm and discover the secret behind making fermented shark. There are also several ocean trips available from Stykkishólmur, including boat trips for whale watching.See more
