When you think of Iceland, you imagine Polar Beers, Santa Clause, Penguins and Vikings that drink out of horns. Well, we sadly disappoint you. Iceland have Vikings though, and few that want to show you some volcanic and really heavy landscape. On this Reykjanes Peninsula tour you will get to see what Iceland is all about. All the history it has to keep, all the delicious food and drinks. Reykjanes Peninsula has probably one of Iceland´s oldest history to keep. The first settler of Iceland used to own the whole peninsula and many historical things have happened there. Not to mention the nature it has to offer. All these hot mud pools, these lava fields, small old fishing villages, Blue Lagoon and some breathtaking cliffs. Make the most of your time and have a taste of it all in once.  

Explore an intriguing part of Iceland in the best way possible, with a local guide. This excellent seven-hour tour gives you the opportunity to explore the stunning scenery that Reykjanes peninsula has to offer. There is no better way to experience the youngest part of Iceland than with a local nature-loving guide who knows all the best spots and stories.

A knowledgeable guide will pick you up at your hotel, guesthouse or one of the bus stop downtown in Reykjavik(see list of bus stops here) before you start your journey. While driving to see the Icelandic horse.

Seltun is the next stop. This is a geothermal area located in Krysuvik next to Kleifarvatn lake. This area is absolutely stunning and is located on top of an active volcano.

A short drive down from the volcano and to the magical cliffs and seaside of Krysuvikur cliffs. This place is absolutely magical and you feel like the earth just stops there and then there is nothing.

Grindavik fishing village to have the lobster soup and bread.

Blue Lagoon is next. There you can enjoy fantastic lava fields in a surreal nature environment. It’s a great way to end the tour since it leaves you in awe of Iceland and especially the volcanically active Reykjanes peninsula.

Kirkjubasar cliffs are next. This place is absolutely magnificent. Seeing the cliffs located on the Mid-Atlantic ridge with waves braking at them and the small island outside of them is so calming but yet, surreal at the same time. Everything so volcanic and surrounded by lava fields.

Next, you will drive from the Europe part of Iceland (geologically speaking) over to the North American continent. We know, it’s a bit confusing, but your guide will explain everything. There, you can walk between the two continents and also take pictures of yourself holding the bridge between the continents. It’s a popular photo spot.

Next up is the oldest and probably the most historical village on Reykjanes Peninsula. Who did live there 1.200 year ago? Can you still see his house? Why is there a black church there? Why is there an 130 years old anchor there? What did happen to this town? There is so much to tell there!

You can use this tour to get dropped off at the airport. You will be there around 4pm.
