The Snaefellsnes tour is one of the three or four regular tours offered by a few companies from Reykjavik. It is whole day tour, with some 70-80 kms each way spent getting into the countryside before the main attractions start. The climax at the 'beach'...More

For whatever reason this is not as big a tourist route as the others but in my opinion was much better. Take a day trip from the city and visit the peninsula.

Landscapes like the ones on this peninsula are pretty rare. Desolate, lava strewn fields with a backdrop of craggy or smooth mountains, a glacier, countless streams and waterfalls, horses, sheep and the odd goat. On the coast there are birds galore which you can get...More

If they're offering the tour then I would say yes. Any tour is worth doing. You'll never find perfect weather in Iceland. I went in Sept and most of my tour days had rain.
