The Snaefellsnes Peninsula lies in the west of Iceland. Known as an area of outstanding natural scenery it is often referred to as Iceland in miniature because so many national sites can be found concentrated here in one area. Christopher Columbus is said to have stayed at Ingjaldsholl near Rif on
the peninsula where he heard tales of distant lands to the west and some of the most important Icelandic sagas also took place here. The iconic Snaefellsjokull volcano and glacier is situated at the far western point of the peninsula, which is also a large seasonal nesting area for migratory birds. There are also small picturesque fishing villages dotted along the coastline, geothermal areas, lava fields and waterfalls to explore.
