Let’s start with the white sand beach, especially popular with photographers looking for charming models. Beautiful seals posing along the Ytri Tunga’s shore can easily be spotted in June and July, but who knows, you might be lucky any time of year. And there’s also the gorgeous backdrop of Snæfellsjökull glacier to admire for hours on end… It’ll work as an appetizer for the main dish of this trip!
Going South, we’ll step by an inconspicuous village of Búðir, to see its only attraction: a small black church known as Búðakirkja. The dramatic, surreal landscape of endless fields with one Búðakirkja looming on the horizon offers a truly unforgettable view.
Closer and closer to the glacier, there’s a real masterpiece of nature in the form of a small Anastrapi village. It does look like an artwork of an excellent painter, with its basalt columns and cliffs surrounding one of Iceland’s most impressive natural harbors. We can also walk on a remarkable stone bridge, which will make you feel like literally stepping in another, magical world. Photo opportunities alert here! No worries, our guide-photographer is always ready for a shot.
The road Djúpalónssandur, a black rocky beach located on foot of the glacier, leads through lava fields covered with beautiful moss, providing yet another portion of marvelous views. Once a thriving fishing village, the bay stays uninhabited today, yet still bearing traces of Djúpalónssandur’s once prosperous times.
Time for what you’ve been most waiting for! You’ll experience the glacier touch – driving as close Snæfellsjökull as possible, depending on weather conditions. Here’s the landmark of the peninsula in all its glory, an over 1400 m high dormant volcano towering over the Snæfellsnes’ National Park. No words can describe its majestic beauty and probably no picture does it justice. It’s one view your eyes and soul can’t miss! There are a lot of intriguing stories connected to Snæfellsjökull, some of which picture it as one of the seven chakras of the world. Well, the magnetism of this place really is indeed undeniable.
We’ll call it a day after reaching Iceland’s most recognizable landmark. Kirkjufell, the unique “Church Mountain”, owes its name to the distinctive, cylindrical shape which resembles a steeple. Kirkjufell, along with a picturesque waterfall overlooking it, is also one of the most photographed places in Iceland. Though most impressive under the midnight sun or northern lights, Kirkjufell always mesmerizes with the colors that change seasonally. To see them dancing around the dramatic mountain’s formation is a real treat, especially for the “Games of Thrones” fans, who could see Kirkjufell in the series season 7.
Icelandic weather is unpredictable. Bring warm and waterproof clothes, gloves & hat. Hiking boots are strongly recommended.
