Private 8-Hour Reykjanes Peninsula Tour in Super Jeep with Volcano Hike and Blue Lagoon
Discover the many wonders of the Reykjanes Peninsula with this private super jeep adventure with visits to Fagradalsfjall volcano and the Blue Lagoon. Those eager to experience the many incredible sites of this geothermal region in different ways will love this action-packed excursion.
You’ll start this tour when your guide picks you up in a modified super jeep in Reykjavik. This vehicle is excellent for navigating the bumpy roads of the volcanic Reykjanes Peninsula and has comforts such as free Wi-Fi.
You’ll leave the city and begin to explore Reykjanes. This region is famous for its barren lava fields, creeping moss, cone-shaped volcanoes, and beautiful coasts.
Your private guide can answer questions about the natural forces that have shaped these landscapes and tell you local tales of Icelandic folklore.
Your first stop today is Lake Kleifarvatn, which has legends regarding a serpent in its depths. This vast body of water is surrounded by jagged mountains, has small hot spring areas, and once lost over a third of its volume after an earthquake opened beneath it.
Next, you’ll head to the Krysuvik geothermal area. In this colorful spot, you’ll walk across wooden walkways to marvel over mud pools, hot springs, and steam vents. Information signs will tell you about the processes at work here.
Your guide will then escort you to the hiking path toward the Fagradalsfjall volcano. This feature erupted in 2021 and 2022 in the valleys of Geldingadalur and Meradalir, and the resulting lava fields became two of Iceland’s newest attractions.
If you are up for the adventure, you can hike up to one of the craters through a dramatic volcanic valley. Depending on the ambition and ability of your group, this hike can take an hour each way but can easily be shortened.
Following this volcano experience, you’ll continue your Reykjanes sightseeing tour, admiring the fishing villages along the coast. In summer, you’ll also head to some cliffs to admire the thousands of birds nesting there.
Finally, you’ll arrive at the Blue Lagoon. If you pre-booked entry to this magical geothermal spa, you can dip in its beautiful blue waters and enjoy its healing qualities. The lagoon has a sauna, steam room, sound cave, and waterfall, and all guests are welcome to use silica masks on site.
After enjoying Iceland’s most famous attraction, your private guide will drive you back to Reykjavik.
