Snæfellsnes Peninsula

Hiking Snæfellsnes is an exciting task.  We have hiked it over many years and here we offer our guests to take advantage of that and follow our footsteps.

By clicking the names on the destinations you’ll see:

  • a map showing where the hike is on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula
  • a description of the hike from Haraldur Sigurdsson
  • a GPS track to download as a guideline for your hike
  • a map showing the track, elevation, distance, time and more.

Remember:  Hikers only leave their footprints and only take memories back home!

Hiking in Iceland

Walking is permitted on uncultivated land. However, please avoid taking shortcuts over fenced areas, pastures and private plots. Follow the rules in areas under special wildlife or vegetation protection. Follow marked footpaths, where they exist. These paths make for a safer trip, as well as reduce wear and tear on sensitive natural elements.

Landowners may not hinder passage of walkers alongside rivers, lakes and ocean, or on tracks and paths. There should be a gate or style close to any hindrances.

Use of lakes and rivers requires permission from rights holders. Riverbanks, lakeshores, beaches and islands are often important areas for wildlife and it is important to pass through such areas with care.
