Reykjanes Peninsula is one of the most captivating places to visit in Iceland, with its rugged coastline, vast lava fields, and bubbling mud pots and hot springs. The peninsula is alive with natural beauty that will leave you mesmerized.
Our private tour will take you around the still-active Fagradalsfjall volcano, starting with a drive to Kleifarvatn, the largest and one of the deepest lakes in Iceland. Surrounded by mountains and lava fields.
Next, you'll explore the colorful geothermal area of Seltún, whith its bubbling and simmering mud pools. Then, the tour heads to Krýsuvíkurbjarg cliffs, where you can see thousands of birds in the summer. Despite the harsh winds, the view of the black rock face dropping straight into the sea is simply breathtaking.
The tour then takes you to the town of Grindavik, where you can taste some of the best fish and chips you'll ever have. After lunch, it's time to see one of the many geological wonders of Reykjanes: Brimektill, a natural lava pool carved by marine erosion, where you'll observe some of the craziest waves in Iceland.
From the observation point, you can also see Reykjanesviti, the oldest lighthouse in Iceland and our next stop.
As you drive past the colorful field of Gunnuhver, boiling steam vents and fumaroles will accompany you on the way to Sandvík. This beach is known for its incredible dunes and remarkable black sand that paints an unforgettable coastline panorama. Here, you can also visit the Bridge Between Continents, a small bridge spanning a fissure between Europe and North America. Standing above the tectonic plates, it's an incredible feeling to be on two different continents at the same time!
