Join this thrilling private tour exploring the natural attractions found within the Reykjanes Peninsula, including stops at Raufarhólshellir lava tunnel and the world famous Blue Lagoon Spa. This is a fantastic choice for those looking to discover Reykjanes, but who wish to do so with both privacy and solitude.
The tour begins in Reykjavík or at the Keflavík International Airport.
You will first be picked up from your accommodation, before being driven to the first site of the day, Raufarhólshellir lava tunnel. This is one of the longest and most famous cave systems in Iceland, providing a true insight into how lava solidifies after an explosive volcanic eruption.
During the winter, extraordinary ice sculptures form inside the entrance of the tunnel and, a little further inside, you will see firsthand the detail and dazzling colour of the various rock faces.
Your next stop will be Kleifarvatn, the largest lake on the Reykjanes Peninsula. Its southern section is warmed by hot springs that run into the lake but is otherwise very cold. Despite being no good for a swim, Kleifarvatn is the perfect place for taking photographs because of its stark volcanic surroundings and bright blue water.
After that, you will make a stop at the geothermal springs of Krýsuvík, located within the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Dramatically coloured hills create a beautiful view over the volcanic vents and boiling springs, making this one of the most prized travel destinations in the area.
The one and only Blue Lagoon will be your final destination on this private day tour. Thankfully, it is one of the most rewarding, allowing you to lay back, soak and relax your muscles after a hard day's adventuring.
At the Blue Lagoon, water is pumped from the depths of the earth by the adjacent geothermal power-plant and contains within it strains of healing algae and bacteria that can be found nowhere else. The water's opacity and vivid blue colour reveal these unusual properties, all the while complimenting the lagoon's luxurious aesthetic.
Other than its pools, the Blue Lagoon boasts hot and cold tubs, saunas and steam rooms, as well as various skin and massage treatments that can be purchased at extra cost. All guests can use the silica masks provided, but those on the premium package can also expect algae masks, a free welcome drink and use of the facility's bathrobes and slippers.
The admission to the Blue Lagoon and the Lava Tunnel is included in the tour price. The driver will wait for you, before returning your party to their accommodation.
