Hiking Routes

Budir, on the southwestern shores of Snaefellsnes, is very popular goal because of the beauty of the region and its nearness to Glacier Snaefellsjokull. Many other interesting places worth exploring are in the vicinity, such as the fishing hamlets Arnarstapi (Eagle’s Cliff) and Hellnar. The shoreline is rocky and very spectacular in its beauty. In several places there are holes or caves of considerable size through the cliffs, which shore openings are are near the edge and where the breakers rush through and the sea shoots upwards reminding of geysers in action. At Hellnar there is a natural sea port, which was one of the largest ones in Snaefellsnes in centuries past. Spectacular and beautiful cliffs drop directly into the sea. One of them, Valanos, dontains the cave Badstofa, which is renowned for its peculiar natural lighting and colourful interior.
The westernmost tip of the Snaefell Peninsula became the fourth National Park of Iceland in June 2003.
