About Other Snaefellsnes Waterfalls
There are other Snaefellsnes Waterfalls (or Snæfellsnes Waterfalls) beyond those that we already have write-ups for on this website’s West Region pages.
In fact, there were so many waterfalls that we spotted throughout the peninsula that it wasn’t practical to have individualized write-ups for each one.
So that was why I made up this page to essentially celebrate and acknowledge the many other waterfalls that we spotted in this part of Iceland.
That said, there could be some flux as we later find out some of the waterfalls that have appeared on this page may deserve their own write-up given that they have dedicated trails or excursions to them.
Indeed, this page is really for those roadside waterfalls that we’ve seen that we could pause briefly for or just keep going past while a passenger tries to take pictures while the car’s moving.
That just shows you how many and often the Snæfellsnes Waterfalls were coming at us!
And as you can see from the photos on this page, many of these weren’t slouches either!
And although we were on a waterfalling excursion throughout the country, which brought us to this less-touristed region of the country, we also spotted other memorable attractions like black sand beaches, sea arches, glaciers, and even a midnight sun!
It was definitely one of the highlights of our Iceland trip (which contained numerous highlights).
The Snaefellsnes Waterfalls reside in the West Region of Iceland. It is administered by the municipality of Snæfellsbær. For information or inquiries about the general area as well as current conditions, you may want to try visiting their website.
We were pretty much covering the coastal stretches of road along Route 54 in both the southern and northern ends of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula as well as the Route 574 going around the western end of the peninsula.
To give you a sense of the geographical context of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Ólafsvík (on the northwestern side of the peninsula) was 64km (about an hour drive) west of the ferry town of Stykkishólmur (on the northern side of the peninsula), 118km (90 minutes drive) northwest of Borgarnes (on the southeast side of the peninsula), and 187km (2.5 hours drive) north of Reykjavik.
