Cruises from Grundarfjordur
Grundarfjordur is a growing community on the Breidafjordur fjord in Iceland. The town is considered unusually beautiful and well-kept, and has received several awards for its neat appearance. The region also has a reputation for a unique climate and unusually beautiful surroundings, as it is situated in front of an impressive mountain range with an alpine look. Sailing into Grundarfjordur, one travels into Iceland's heroic past, for this township - village really - is one of the oldest settlements on the island.
Much of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula is a national park. The park's centrepiece is the mighty Snaefellsjokull, an imposing stratovolcano with flanks buried beneath a glacial flow.
