Once you’ve boarded your private transport, you’ll set off around the peninsula, starting with the Bridge Between the Continents. This unique attraction in Iceland sits above the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where the Eurasian and American tectonic plates pull apart, letting you walk across two continents on foot.
Next, you can visit the Gunnuhver hot spring and learn the spooky folklore surrounding the steaming mud pool. Also close by is Iceland’s oldest lighthouse, Reykjanesviti, which can be seen up close after a hike on the cliffs next to the Atlantic ocean.
The small fishing town of Grindavik is the perfect place to stop for lunch, where you can choose between lobster or lamb soup. Nearby, you can also stop by the famous Blue Lagoon for photos or dip in their relaxing hot springs if you want to unwind before continuing your trip.
As you keep driving through the region, you’ll pass by many other wonders, such as the Seltun hot springs and the Krysuvik geothermal area. You’ll also pass through the beautiful Lake Kleifarvatn and the port town of Hafnarfjordur.
Lastly, the peninsula is famous for the recently erupted Geldingadalur volcano, and the resulting lava fields are some of the most astonishing sights in southwest Iceland. You can take a volcano tour to see the stunning effects of the eruption on the nearby landscape.
You’ll be doing a lot of walking on this tour, so remember to bring comfortable shoes and wear weather-appropriate clothing. Your tour guide can also assist you with all your other requests and questions to make the tour more enjoyable for you.
