Explore the wonders of the Reykjanes Peninsula, including the erupting volcano of Fagradalsfjall, and finish your day in the luxurious new Sky Lagoon with this incredible tour tailored for people with limited mobility. Older individuals, those who aren’t steady on their feet, and any who simply don’t want to overexert themselves on holiday should not overlook this fantastic excursion.
Your day begins in Reykjavik when you are picked up by your local, friendly guide, who will whisk you out of the capital and into the lava landscapes of the Reykjanes Peninsula. As soon as you set out, you can begin to marvel over the otherworldly fields of grey moss, the cone-shaped volcanoes, the stunning coast, and the fumes - and maybe even flames - of Fagradalsfjall.
Your first major stop will be at the mystical Lake Kleifarvatn, home to some unusual geothermal and geological activity and has played an important role in Icelandic literature. You will then head to the Seltun Geothermal Area to better look at Iceland’s volcanic forces; there are plenty of hot springs and fumaroles here that dye the earth strange and vivid colors.
After that, you will make your way towards Fagradalsfjall. While some tours include a three-hour round hike right up to the eruption site, this one will instead take you on a much easier route to see its newly created lava. As such, those who usually could not imagine getting to witness the forces of an active volcano now can!
After a stop in the authentic fishing village of Grindavik for refreshments, you will head to Gunnuhver, a massive, boiling mud pool that is steeped in the legend of a vengeful ghost. Following this, your guide will take you to Reykjanesviti, the oldest lighthouse in the country, which balances precariously on the edge of a crumbling cliff.
Your final site on the Reykjanes Peninsula is the Bridge Between the Continents, which crosses over a no-man’s-land from the North American tectonic plate to the Eurasian one, allowing you to understand why this area - and all of Iceland - is so volcanic.
The tour, however, is not complete yet! Your guide will return your group to Reykjavik, where you have the option to indulge in the luxuries of the Sky Lagoon. Nestled amongst lava, overlooking the ocean, and with a range of facilities and therapies, there are few places better for revitalizing after such a fun day of travel. Once you are fully recharged, you'll be returned to your pick-up point.
Explore the wonders of the Reykjanes Peninsula, marvel over the effects of a volcanic eruption without exerting yourself, and bask in the waters of the Sky Lagoon on this unforgettable excursion. Check availability by choosing.
