Day 1 – Snæfellsnes Peninsula

We head west bound through the small city of Borgarnes on the Hvítá River. Then you head out towards the peninsula of  Snaefellsnes which is sometimes called miniature Iceland. Being an extinct volcanic system the geological variety is incredible.  With colourful Rhyolite mountains and Craters, beautiful lava fields and a rugged shoreline. The famous Snaefellsjokull glacier featured as the entrance to the centre of the earth in Jules Verne´s novel. Arnarstapi village, Djupalonssandur beach , Londrangar cliff formations, Hellnar and the iconic Kirkjufell mountain  are a few of the sites along the way not to forget the impressive basalt pillars of Gerðurberg. Snæfellsnes sometimes goes by the name of miniature Iceland due to the great geological varieties you find there.
