The final leg of your journey takes you to the long arm of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula where whale watching and wild west beaches await. Discover the fishing villages, marvel at the impressive towering sea cliffs with their flocks of nesting birds and witness the impressive Snæfellsjökull glacier, which can be explored by snowmobile during the winter months. Spend your evenings at the traditional Hotel Budir and dine on imaginative Icelandic cuisine in full view of the glacier itself.

Showcasing some of Iceland's best natural features this self-drive can be taken in both summer and winter, with each season offering the same unique experiences, authentic Icelandic hospitality and mouth-watering cuisine.
