Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Gerduberg basalt columns, Gerduberg Road 54, 311 Iceland

    One of the first stops is to admire huge basalt columns called Gerduberg, they are so perfectly shaped into hexagons so they barely seem natural. (may not be accessible in winter)

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Snaefellsjokull National Park & Glacier, Klettsbud 7 Hellissandur Iceland

    The Snaefellsnes Peninsula is often called ‘Miniature Iceland’ as basically every type of natural feature that makes the country famous can be found here, including waterfalls, glaciers, volcanoes, lava fields, cliffs and wildlife.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Port Arnarstapi, Arnarstapavegur, Arnarstapi, Iceland

    You will visit this charming fishing village and admire the unusual sea rock formations with a lot of bird life.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Dritvik and Djupalonssandur, 574 Snaefellsnes Peninsula, Hellnar 360 Iceland

    At Djupalonssandur beach (may not be accessible in winter) we will allow those who feel up to it to try strength with the Stones of Trial.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Kirkjufell Mountain, Road 54, Grundarfjorour 350 Iceland

    You will also stop by picturesque church-shaped mountain Kirkjufell which is accompanied by a wonderful little waterfall on the other side of the road. This place has become one of the top bucket list items for visitors coming to Iceland!

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Kirkjufellsfoss, Grundarfjorour Iceland

    Kirkjufellfoss is located by the Kirkjufell mountain (it is the same stop).

    Duration: 20 minutes

    The ones I was on were not. Even if you could get the wheelchair onto the small bus, the terrain was uneven in a lot of the places, not easily navigable. These are wild places. At Golden Falls for example, the only rest... More
