Discover the otherworldly landscapes of the Reykjanes Peninsula on this 10-hour private jeep tour with an optional soak in the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa. Travelers keen to see impressive geothermal sites, dramatic coastal cliffs, and a world-class spa should book this tour now.

This tour begins with a pick-up in a private jeep from your Reykjavik accommodation. Your jeep fits up to four passengers plus an experienced driver-guide. Because this is a private tour, it offers itinerary flexibility, and you can expect an excellent service level.

Many travelers overlook the Reykjanes Peninsula, yet it offers so much. It’s just a short drive from Reykjavik or Keflavik, with several breathtaking natural features.

First, you’ll head to the Reykjanes Geopark, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a geothermal area offering a glimpse of what lies below the surface.

The Seltun geothermal area boasts rocks in vivid colors, resulting from their high mineral content. Walking along the paths, you’ll be mesmerized by the vibrant, steamy landscape. The mud pools and hot springs at Seltun can reach 176-212 F (80-100 C).

You’ll also visit Gunnuhver, another beautiful hot spring area close to Reykjanesviti, the oldest lighthouse in Iceland. The contrast between the ocean, lighthouse, cliffs, and black lava landscape is magical and offers excellent photo opportunities.

Gunnuhver gets its name after Gunna, a female ghost that haunted the peninsula’s inhabitants following her death 400 years ago. One day a priest set a trap for her spirit to fall into the spring. 

Your next stop is Kleifarvatn, the peninsula’s largest lake. The setting here is serene, and the area is known for its hiking trails and beautiful nature. 

Your group will also see the nearby Graenavatn lake. It’s much smaller than Kleifarvatn but equally as beautiful with its turquoise water.

Another highlight is visiting the Bridge Between Two Continents. It symbolizes the separation of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, but in reality, they’re much further apart.

Your group will also visit the small yet fascinating Viking World Museum. Its star feature is a climb-aboard Viking ship replica. You can also see genuine Viking artifacts and try on the Viking helmets for fun photos.

During this full-day excursion, you also have the opportunity to hike to the edge of a lava field created in 2021. Doing so gives you an up-close experience of Iceland’s nature and insights into the peninsula’s volcanic activity.

The day’s final attraction is the world-famous Blue Lagoon geothermal spa. You’ll have plenty of time to take pictures of your glorious surroundings and enjoy refreshments in the cafe. 

You can also bathe in the lagoon and try the nourishing silica mask if you wish. The tour price doesn’t include Blue Lagoon entrance tickets, and you must purchase them in advance.

After a memorable day of sightseeing, your driver will take you back to your Reykjavik accommodation. Those traveling in winter might glimpse the northern lights on the way back.

Discover the top natural treasures of the Reykjanes Peninsula and enjoy an optional soak in the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa on this unbeatable full-day private tour. Check availability now by choosing a date.
