Luxury Snaefellsnes Holidays: The Detail

In the long summer days, when the sun hardly sets, there are plenty of outdoor activities to choose from: fishing for sea trout or river salmon, horse riding, sea kayaking, whale-watching, hiking or snowmobiling on the glacier-topped volcano that dominates the end of the peninsula - and plenty of daylight hours in which to enjoy them.
