Travel with us to Snæfellsnes peninsula in West Iceland, only couple of hours drive from Reykjavik through the Hvalfjordur tunnel up to the wild coast of the peninsula where you are guaranteed to capture the greatest looking photographs. Snæfellsnes is sometimes called “Iceland in Miniature” since many national sights can be found there along with the mysterious volcano Snæfellsjokull glacier. The volcanoes in the area have been inactive for thousands of years but their moss-covered lava makes the vast landscape extraordinary and very picturesque.
Snaefellsnes has a variety of natural and geological phenomenum like basalt columns, mineral springs (some where you can drink fresh carbonated water coming straight from the ground), golden beaches, birds nesting sides, rhyolite mountains and many more.
Most of the coastline is dotted with small villages with dramatic backdrop of beautiful mountain range and wild crashing waves and cliffs in the front, in other words a paradise. Among our focal points is the windswept location Budir hosting its beautiful black church surrounded by endless field of lava and the rough but beautiful Arnarstapi fishing village with wild coastline and spectacular columnar basalt.
Uniquely formed basalt cliffs constantly being crashed by waves will be in the spotlight too. We will make a stop at the charming fishing village Grundarfjodur and explore and capture its well-known landmark Mt. Kirkjufell that is believed to be one of the most beautiful mountain of Iceland. During wintertime this area is ideal for capturing the spectacular Northern lights.
