Many travelers overlook the Reykjanes peninsula, yet it offers so much. This tour is rich in culture and natural treasures, an easy drive from Keflavik International Airport or Reykjavik.
You may book this trip for the day you arrive or leave Iceland or any time between! Two departure times are available, at 09:00 or 14:00. A private guide will pick you up from your Reykjavik accommodation or greet you at the airport to begin the tour.
Depending on your group size, you’ll travel in a minivan, 4X4 jeep, or minibus. This private tour caters to groups with up to 18 people.
Today’s first stop is Kleifarvatn, the largest lake on the Reykjanes peninsula. This scenic lake is the perfect place to stop and breathe fresh air. It boasts stunning natural beauty and is a much-loved area for hiking and photography.
The next attraction is the Seltun geothermal area, south of lake Kleifarvatn. Here you can check out the steaming hot springs and boiling mud pits as you stroll along the wooden deck and appreciate the fascinating landscape.
After Seltun, your driver will take you to Grindavik fishing town and further west to the bridge between two continents. This footbridge sits in the rift between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates and runs in the direction between the plates. The gap between the continents is several kilometers wide, so the bridge is symbolic rather than an actual connection.
Your next stop is the nearby sea cliffs, with breathtaking coastal vistas and abundant birdlife. The Gunnuhver hot springs offer another opportunity to visit an impressive geothermal area before seeing Reykjanesviti, Iceland’s oldest lighthouse.
After seeing the diverse natural landscapes of the Reykjanes peninsula, your driver will stop somewhere for you to buy lunch. The sightseeing portion of the trip takes around three hours, and then you’ll head to the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa with plenty of time for relaxation and rejuvenation.
The Blue Lagoon is one of the country’s top attractions. Your visit to the spa is part of this tour, although you’ll need to purchase your ticket separately. Then all that’s left to do is soak in the warm mineral-rich waters and perhaps indulge in a luxurious spa treatment.
If you book the afternoon tour during winter, you may be lucky enough to see the elusive and beautiful northern lights, a magical end to your day. At the end of the tour, your driver will drop you back at your accommodation in Reykjavik or take you to the airport.
