Visiting All the Unimaginable Wonders of the Reykjanes Peninsula


We drive to the Reykjanes peninsula crossing the North-American and Eurasian tectonic plates on the way crossing tectonic plates, lava fields, passing lakes, craters, volcanoes, crossing fissure swarms, visiting geothermal areas, driving through fishing villages and visiting the area where the Mid-Atlantic Oceanic Ridge rises out of the sea and becomes land in Iceland.

We'll see hot geysers and boiling hot mud, get a chance to see craters up close, pass and cross the volcanoes, enjoy the view lakes and lava fields. We might even see some birds on the way. 4x4 driving. We will be passing lighthouses and magnificent sand beaches, cliffs and rocks and we drive through towns and villages passing beautiful churches and homes of the locals. Lunch break can be arranged in one of the villages.

Break at the Blue Lagoon can be organized. Please talk to the guide about when to book the visit.

I can create a customized tour if you have any special requests or if you are more than 4 persons and need a bigger vehicle.

Itinerary

I pick you up at your hotel at 9. 30am. We drive out of Reykjavik along the Reykjanes peninsula passing the former US base in Keflavik before we head to the lighthouse at Gardur. From there we drive along the coast to the lighthouse Reykjanesviti walking up the magnificent cliff there and to the lighthouse. We visit the Bridge between Continents, the geothermal area Gunnuhver and drive through the lava close to the Blue Lagoon before we visit Krysuvik, another beautiful geothermal area. We pass some small beautiful churches on the way and see some spectacular light houses plus lava fields and craters. We plan to be back at your hotel close to 4pm unless you want to take a break at the Blue lagoon.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was an incredible tour and time worth spent on Christmas Day (an experience of a lifetime). The tour guide Guðrún Helga was pleasant, professional and extremely knowledgeable about the terrain and confident in her abilities to assess the areas and routes. Gudrun was very competent driving through the scenic areas including some rough patches. Guðrún has global dexterity and an adventures spirit that makes the journey enjoyable. I absolutely recommend her.
