If you are looking for a magnificent tour in Iceland, I can recommend you visiting Snæfellsnes national park. Some people think you can show the tourist whole Iceland in this small part of the country. The national park got the name “Iceland in the pill” due to many beautiful national sights.
Park was established on 2001 for the purpose of protective unique animals and nature that cannot be found in other parts of Europe.
The car trip from the Reykjavik take about 2 hours. If you don’t have driving license or don’t want to rent a car, you can choose the popular company like Nice Travel. They organize Snaefellsnes day tours, or can pick you up at harbour where your cruise ship arrives.
Snaefellsnes National Park lay on the westernmost part of the peninsula that have access to the volcanoes, glacial, and few beaches with the yellow sand.
Key program of the tour
The trip difficulty is easy, and it’s suited even for children and older people. Mostly the hiking, and observation of the breathtaking landscape.
True trip start on Snæfellsjökull is the glacier-capped stratovolcano. Hiking on the highest peak of the western part of the country, can be lifetime experience. You can observe the shore with the rocks “growing from sea”. The youngest would love seeing the playful seals on the beach and birds that hatch the eggs.
Unforgettable view for any foreigner, the beach is listed for the places you have to visit in your lifetime by many travelers. Tourist always try to take some sand in the bottles or boxes, for the gift purpose. Always take some warm clothes since the air humidity are high, and the wind never stop to blow. Resting on the beach and watching the wave crashing on the rocks, can give u certain feel of relief.

The church mountain. The picture of this mountain is used by any tourist, site, guide and photographers for example how the Iceland landscape looks like. There is possibility for climbing on this 463 m mountain, but you need to have professional equipment (boots, gloves etc) and the weather have to be perfect. A steeply way to top of the hill can be too challenging for not experienced climbers.
Land of the mountains?
There are countless mountains and waterfalls along the coastal road which u can observe during the driving. As the country with thousands of waterfalls, curious is all of them are different in size or shapes.
