Words can not conjure up the magical mystery and wonders of Breiðafjörður Bay and the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. This area of the mid-west coast of Iceland has captured the imagination of visitors from all over the world and is fast becoming one of the country's 'hottest' places. For nature lovers this is definitely a 'must see' place when in Iceland.
Lush green valleys and rugged lava fields, craters and salmon rivers are the characterizing contrasts of this part of Iceland. When visiting, you will also have the opportunity to learn about two of Iceland's most famous Viking sons: Erik the Red, who discovered Greenland; and his son, Leif the Lucky, who discovered America.
Breiðafjörður Bay is renowned for its stunning beauty, with the perfect frame of mountains, high and low, highlighting the scenery. The most famous of these mountains is the majestic and mystical Snæfellsnes Glacier, towering at the coast.

Ski: Snaefellsjokull is one of the more popular and accessible volcanoes in Iceland, located beside the Atlantic at the western tip of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula northwest of the capital of Reykjavik. With a history of climbing dating back over two centuries, Snaefellsjokull makes an easy ascent and descent on skis throughout the winter and spring, although the summit pinnacle apparently requires some moderate ice climbing. However, the weather in this part of Iceland is typically even stormier than in the rest of the country, since it is exposed directly to the prevailing gales from the west and southwest.
