This tour takes you west from Reykjavik on a scenic route to Borgarfjorour and the village of Borgarnes where a short stop will be made for refreshments.

Next up is a visit to the idyllic Arnarstapi village where you'll take a walk to view the extraordinary landscape along the precipitous shoreline and where a break will be made for lunch. After lunch, the tour continues to Djupalonssandur, a tranquil, black-pebbled beach that offers beautiful views out to the sea and fascinating history that lies in the Snafellsjokull National Park, close to where Jules Verne located his entrance for the "Journey to the Centre of the Earth".
