On this tour, you hike to the summit of Snæfellsjökull, the crowning jewel of Snæfellsnes Peninsula. It is one of the most picturesque glacier in Iceland, and hides a dormant 700.000-year-old stratovolcano and which rises 1.446 m above sea level and last erupted in 250AD. Most famous for providing the setting for Jules Verne's classic subterranean epic, "Journey to the Center of the Earth", the area is rich with history and mystique.
Standing on top of the glacial volcano, you have amazing panoramic views that extend from the Reykjanes Peninsula in the south to the West Fjords in the North. The drive to the starting point of the hike takes you through Snæfellsnes National Park. This tour checks all the boxes - amazing views, geological wonders and a challenging glacier hike.
