The Wonders of Snæfellsnes
The Snæfellsnes peninsula in western Iceland is a place shrouded in mystery. The sleeping and glacier covered volcano Snæfellsnes overlooks the peninsula, surrounded by landscape formed by the sea and lava. Snæfellsnes has fascinated mankind the world over ever since Jules Verne described the volcano as the ”entrance to the centre of the Earth” in his book ”A Journey to the Centre of the Earth” in 1871.
A coach transfers you to Snæfellsnes and once there we walk from Arnarstapi with it’s many rock formations. After lunch we continue our walk along Djúpalónssandur, a black volcanic beach surrounded by mighty cliffs and mountains. The ”Nybyggermuseet” museum shows us how Iceland as a nation developed, and how its people lived during the course of the centuries. The stories about the first settlers in Iceland are unique, as no other country in the world has such thorough written documentation of the conditions at the time, and of how people lived back then.
