Embark on a unique journey through the Reykjanes Peninsula, a place where volcanic landscapes merge with breathtaking coastal views. This private tour encompasses all the must-see sites on the peninsula, including serene lakes and invigorating hot springs.

The Reykjanes peninsula is located southwest of the country, near the capital city of Reykjavik. The region boasts immense lava fields, volcanoes, and intense geothermal activity.

The tour starts with pick-up from Reykjavik with your private guide, who will exclusively take you to the Reykjanes lighthouse. Perched on the rugged cliffs of Reykjanesta, the lighthouse is 85 feet tall with a traditional cylindrical shape.

History states that the first lighthouse in Iceland was built in the area in 1878. However, an earthquake that happened in 1905 wholly demolished the structure. The new lighthouse, which is the one standing today, was completed in 1908.

Perched in the rugged cliffs of Reykjanesta, the Reykjanes lighthouse offers an idyllic surrounding. In addition, it's an excellent viewpoint for awe-inspiring panoramic views of the North Atlantic and Eldey Island, a haven for numerous bird species, including one of the world's largest Northern Gannet colonies.

Given the dynamic nature of the Reykjanes peninsula, with its active volcanic landscape, the tour's route is subject to change for your safety and to respect the environment. Please note that during eruptions or for accessibility reasons, certain areas may be restricted. However, this does not diminish the awe-inspiring views you can still enjoy from the Reykjanes lighthouse.

The tour will make a stop at the Krysuvik on the way back to Reykjavik. Situated in the southern part of the peninsula, Krysuvik is a spring that captivates anyone with its geothermal activity. Aside from the hot springs, the place offers steaming volcanic vents and striking hills.

Once done exploring the wonders of Krisuvik, we will then proceed to nearby Kleifarvatn Lake. This is the largest lake in the region and one of the deepest lakes in Iceland, with depths that can go up to 318 feet (97 meters).

Kleifarvatn Lake is revered for its captivating allure, making it a remarkable gem for photo-taking. The place presents a scene reminiscent of the rugged Martian landscape, with its crimson-hued rocks and desolate ambiance, offering an otherworldly vista that mesmerizes with its surreal beauty.

To wrap up the tour, you can relax at one of the city's public pools. Here, you can immerse in the relaxing baths, savoring the soothing warmth of the water. It's a perfect way to unwind and reflect on the day's tour, basking in the tranquility of the pool's ambiance. After taking a dip in the pool, the tour ends by taking you to the designated drop-off point.

This tour is a perfect way to experience and see Iceland's volcanic landscapes with a private guide. Book your exclusive Reykjanes Peninsula day tour today. Choose a date by choosing a date.
