Snæfellsnes Trail Run June 2020



Snæfellsnes Trail Run June 2020

Snæfellsnes Peninsula in Iceland is known for its spectacular scenery and the majestic and mystical Snæfellsjökull Glacier. More importantly though, it is also home to one of Iceland’s best trail races (voted best in 2016). This is a 22 km long run that spans the south coast of the peninsula, across a mountain range, and over to the north coast. You will be running on gravel roads, next to a glacier that is also an active volcano, up and down steep hills, past bright white blankets of snow, to finish in a lovely and idyllic fishing village for some well-earned refreshments.

Hey Iceland is excited to offer this unique event as part of an overall fantastic experience in Iceland. The 4 day / 3 night package offers an inclusive Iceland experience with popular highlights, group dinners, as well as an entry to the unforgettable Snæfellsnes Trail Run. A truly extraordinary experience. Tour duration from 26 - 29 June 2020.
