Full description

Reaching dramatically westward, the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, is in many ways a microcosm of Iceland as a whole. With its own fjords, ice cap, volcanoes, fishing and farming communities it is one of the country's must visit areas. The north shore is dotted with fishing villages and is home to one of Iceland's most asthetically pleasing mountains Kirkufell. On the south side of the peninsula, the cliffs of Arnarstapi are famed for their rock arches and blow holes.

To the south of Husafell, the Golden Circle route also provides a full day of scenic wonders, while heading further into the interior, you have the chance to explore Inside a Glacier.

Dining at Hotel Husafell is another highlight. The menu is rich in local produce and flavours offering sophisticated dishes that include imaginative creations using seafood, local beef, lamb and wild game. The restaurant’s picture windows frame stunning views of the surrounding fells and woodland.
