The western tip of the peninsula is a newly designated national park, including the Snæfellsjokull glacier and stunning coastal beaches and cliffs. Visit a view point in the foothills of the glacier, made famous in the novel Journey to the Centre of the Earth penned by French novelist, Jules Verne. Buðir, meaning “shops,” was the old trading post of the area many years ago. What remains today are almost invisible ruins of this formerly vibrant trading post. Stop for coffee at the Buðir Hotel, one of the most popular country hotels in Iceland and often used as a remote meeting place and hideaway for Icelandic and foreign celebrities. You never know whom you might run into! Go down to the tiny village at Arnarstapi to see the beautiful sea cliffs and views in this area. There is a scenic 2.5 kilometre walk from Arnastapi to Hellnar, which you are also free to enjoy. Visit the small settlement of Hellnar, a town practically sitting below the glacier at the ocean’s edge. Seabirds and cliffs dominate the area. During the summer, stop for lunch (not included) at the Fjöruhúsið Café located in a great warm spot near the beach. From here, enjoy amazing views and hear some intense birdsongs! Then enjoy some time on the beach at Djúpalónssandur, but rather than swimming, collect stone pebbles or naturally polished lava stones at the surf’s edge. The last stop is Ólafsvík, a weather-exposed fishing village. Your busy day comes to a close back at your starting point.
