Day 3 - Snæfellsnes
Today you can go exploring the Snæfellsnes peninsula. For nature lovers this is an "absolute must" area to explore in Iceland. The Snæfellsnes peninsula in Iceland´s West is almost like a miniature of the whole country. There are white and black beaches, bird cliffs, spectacular mountains and volcanic craters, incredibly rich trout lakes and salmon rivers lush valleys, unique harbours in charming fishing villages and a world renowned glacier.
Optional Excursion: Vatnshellir
Visiting this beautiful cave offers a unique experience. In the total darkness of the lava cave most sense shut down and the sense of smell becomes dominant, deep underground there is absolutely no sound.
Inside the lava tube there are two main sections. The upper section has great features and unique formations of lava statues curved on the sides of the lava tube. The lower part of the lava cave which can be reached by a long and narrow staircase takes us deep down underground to a place which was hidden from the outside world for thousands of years. Vatnshellir was created in an volcanic eruption some 7,000 years ago.
Drive back to Húsafell and enjoy the night before you drive back to Reykjavík tomorrow.
