The Snæfellsnes Peninsula is a region which is located in western Iceland and is most known for its dramatic landscapes. This place has a National Park which is dominated by the Snaefellskull Volcano, topped by a glacier. Also nearby is a trail that leads through lava fields to the black-pebble Djupalonssandur Beach.

There is also a fishing village, the 19th-century wood-frame Norwegian House, converted into a regional museum and a craft shop for tourists to look around. The Snæfellsnes Peninsula is an ideal place to visit when you only have a few days in Iceland and it is an enchanting area, perfect for a weekend getaway.
