Reykjanes peninsula is the southwestern most point of Iceland and also the youngest. The North Atlantic ridge comes ashore there and due to that visible signs of volcanic activity can be seen all over the peninsula. Lava fields, lava tubes, rifts and hot springs can be found in a number of locations.
More than half of the peninsula is covered with lava fields, some of which are only a few hundred years old. We head for the lighthouse on the westernmost tip of the peninsula, Reykjanesta. This is a magnificent area with rich bird life in the summer and a unique nature where cliffs meet open see.
From there we continue through the lava fields to the nearby fishing village of Grindavik. Our next stop is at The Blue Lagoon where you have three different options; a visit to The Blue Lagoon, transfer to Keflavik Airport or return back to Reykjavík.
Entrance fee to the bathing area is not included in the tour price.
