The good:  spectacular views, rock formations, bays, lava fields, and seaside cliffs. The black beach littered with ruined ships from centuries of wrecks was a stand-out!! Loved it! The not-so-good: although there is no way around it, this is a long tour.  Ours clocked in just

Thank you Braddie2014 for writing a review of your experience on tour of the Snæfellsnes peninsula. There are so many sites to explore on this tour as we drive around the peninsula and in good weather condtions the Snæfellsjökull glacier can be seen as the tour circumnavigates the area but unfortunately ascending the glacier is not possible on this tour. Glad you enjoyed the sites visited although you found the stops too short but the distance to drive will not allow any long stops. Packing lunch is a great idea as there is hardly time to order proper meals on restaurant menus. Most areas will have convenient stores and bistros offering quick meals to order.
