The Snaefellsnes Peninsula 

The Snaefellsnes Peninsula is known as the "Iceland in miniature", since on this small peninsula you can find all the most characteristic landscapes of the island. On the clearest days, it is possible to see from Reykjavík the most significant point of the peninsula, the volcano of Snaefellsnesjokull, one of the symbols of Iceland that became famous all over the world thanks to the book of Jules Verne, "Journey to the Center of the Earth". Located in the west of Iceland, with the Brei-afj.r.ur Fjord to the north and the Gulf of Faxaflói to the south, it contains one of Iceland's four national parks and is a must for all those traveling to Iceland. 

What do I need to bring? No matter at what time of year you decide to travel to Iceland, it is always important to bring a good waterproof jacket, trekking clothes (waterproof trousers like Gore-tex), good trekking shoes, gloves, light hat, sunglasses, sun cream, camera and water bottle.
