Mesmerising lakes, volcanic areas and the rift between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates: all this and more awaits you on Reykjanes Peninsula. Enjoy the natural wonders of Iceland on this day trip from Reykjavik!
Reykjanes Day Trip
After picking you up from your hotel in Reykjavik at 8:30 am, we'll set off on our day trip to the Reykjanes Peninsula, a natural paradise in southwest Iceland.
Arriving at our destination, you'll be captivated by the unsual landscapes - Reykjanes looks like something out of a post-apocalyptic movie! The first stop of our tour will be at Kleifarvatn, the largest lake on the peninsula and, according to local legend, home to a mysterious monster... we'll let you decide if it's true!
Continuing on our route, we'll reach the Krýsuvík geothermal area, where the brightly coloured soil is dotted with hot springs, fumaroles and maars, craters created by explosions of groundwater. We'll visit Grænavatn, a green lake formed by these very eruptions.
We'll then head onwards to the coast, where we'll enjoy the refreshing sea breeze while watching the many different species of bird flying overhead. We'll also see Reykjanesviti , the oldest lighthouse in Iceland.
The last stop on our day trip will be the bridge between two continents, which crosses between the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia - a truly impressive experience!
At the end of the day, we'll head back to Reykjavik for around 2:30 pm.
