Bespoke Iceland tour for The Happy Bus

April 12th, 2016. Last autumn, Charlotte and I hosted a group, most of whom hadn’t met before, for a WPH Northern Lights and Glaciers tour along the south coast of Iceland. They had such a good time that The Happy Bus asked for a bespoke tour to another part of the island. We have just completed it, with the focus this time on the Snaefellsnes peninsula. While we thought that the seas during the March tours were big, they were nothing compared to the waves we saw (and felt) thunder into the cliffs of Svörtuloft, at the westernmost tip of the peninsula. The cliffs themselves are about 25 metres high and given that the spray from freak waves rose another 10 metres above our heads (the wind was in our favour though), those were pretty impressive waves.
