Grundarfjordur is a small town, situated in the north of the Snæfellsnes peninsula in the west of Iceland. The town is situated in front of an impressive mountain range which has a slightly alpine look. On the sea side, there is a mountain called Kirkjufell, a diverted piece of the mountain strip Mýrarhyrna. The mountain forms a small peninsula.
The harbour is considered one of the best natural harbours in the Snaefellsjokull Peninsular and one of the most magical and romantic places in Iceland. The peninsular, famed for its unique geological formations is where Jules Verne chose Snaefellsjokull, the mystical cone shaped volcano and ice cap as its setting the for his famous fictional ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’.
