"Snaefellsnes" Top 5 Page for this destination Iceland Favorite Tip by JLBG

Iceland General: 275 reviews and 309 photos


Favorite thing: Snaefellsnes is one of the wettest spots of Iceland, if not the wetter. This allows lichens to grow very fast (on lichen standards : their growth is very slow !) and to cover the lava beds. This can be dangerous as they act as a sheet upon the rugged surface of a lava bed and you can hurt yourself badly.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
