This tour offers a more challenging hike for experienced hikers: rewarding you with majestic views from Snæfellsjökull glacier, one of Iceland’s largest volcanos. You are going to embark on one of the most amazing climbs of your life! 🗻
Snæfellsjökull glacier is often described as the king of Icelandic mountains, because it is the tallest one in Iceland. It has long been associated with the supernatural - some locals claim that they can feel an energy emanating from the glacier. Snæfellsjökull is also affiliated with Jules Verne using it as the setting for his famous book “Journey to the Center of the Earth”. 🌏
Snæfellsjökull lies on top of an active volcano and you will clearly see how volcanic activity has helped the landscape change and develop over time. Underneath the summit of Snæfellsjökull lies a massive volcanic crater, which is filled with icy crags and awesome rock formations. The surroundings and views from the top of Snæfellsjökull, is well worth the climb, trust us. 😉
You will begin the hike at Arnarstapi, a small fishing village which lies on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. We will take you to lava fields, volcanic rock formations, and other beautiful natural landscapes. Amazing views and experiences guaranteed. 👌
