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.  



Your awesome guide will pick you up in Reykjavik and then while you are driving out of the town and through the town of elves, you will here stories of how elves have caused troubles here for Icelanders and how our believe in them is. 

If you imagine the Peninsula like a boot. You will drive into the boot, by the shin and up top of the toe. On the toe you will learn all about lighthouses and see two of them next to each other, see some breathtaking view over the ocean and explore an old wooden boat on dry with a little dock around it so you can go on board an see how it was in the old days. It is really popular to do the Titanic scene there.

 

Continue to the oldest village of Iceland. See the houses ruins of Iceland´s first settler. See a very unique black church. Why are churches black? Learn all about it. See an anchor from an American ship that ran aground there 130 years ago and here what happened before it came and after.

Drive from the North American plate of Iceland over to the European part. Walk back and forth over the bridge between the two continents.

For the love ones, you can put your love lock on the bridge. The landscape only gets darker and heavier. It is like being on the moon or something similar. This is so different from anything else.

Drive further down to Europe and visit the old female ghost called Gunna. She was a woman that fell into the geothermal hot mud pools when she was fleeing from a priest. This place is called Gunnuhver. These mud pools are so colorful and the hot water running up from the earth with all this power makes it so dramatic. Sometimes you can still hear the screaming from her. Don´t worry though.

Right next to Gunna are the most amazing cliffs called Reykjanes Cliffs. Standing there and marveling at the ocean is incredible. It literally takes your breath away. You can just stand there all day. You can´t though. We have to move on. Ok, just two minutes more.

There are two islands out there, one is called The Man and the other one is called the island of fire. There is one if the largest Northern Gannet colonies in the world. 

Last but not least is the walking path by the Blue Lagoon. Few know of it. You are surrounded by lava field and the blue water in surreal environment.
