West Iceland’s Snæfellsnes peninsula is practically a miniature version of Iceland itself. Book this exciting day tour today to start your journey!
The stunning landscape of this peninsula has captured the imagination of people all over the world, including Jules Verne, author of the famous science fiction novel "A Journey to the Center of the Earth." Following his exploration of the glacier-capped stratovolcano Snæfellsjökull, Verne created the fictional entryway to our planet’s core based on inspiration born from his journeys in Iceland. This amazing mountain is where that journey - and this tour - begins.
How will Snaefellsnes inspire you? A photo? A screenplay? Incredible stories to share with family and friends?
