Itinerary

Lake Kleifarvatn

Kleifarvatn is the biggest lake in the volcanic Reykjanes Peninsula surrounded by mountains that once were formed in eruptions under the ice. Decorated with black basalt beaches and alien rock formations sculpted by the weather elements throughout the centuries. Kleifarvatn is affected by earthquakes and shifting plates that have formed underwater hot springs with bubbling warm water which is an amazing spectacle to see with your own eyes.

Fagradalsfjall Volcano

An active volcano and naturally warm healing waters is something that you don’t see every day and in this tour volcanic- and geothermal activity run the scene to make this a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The beautiful backcountry of Reykjanes Peninsula offers variated scenery, natural phenomena and places of stunning beauty and is only a short distance from Reykjavík! Being so close to the nature-surrounded capital Reykjavík, a tour to the active volcano in Geldingadalir and gives you the great opportunity to visit a number of interesting places in a relaxed pace without much time spent on the road.

The Peninsula of Reykjanes is a true volcanic wonder hosting unique natural phenomenon’s: open rift zones, mossy covered lava-fields, geothermal fields, mountain lakes, fishing villages, and breathtaking coastal features. Reykjanes lies on one of the world’s major plate boundaries, the Mid Atlantic Ridge in between the tectonic plates of Eurasia and North America, drifting apart from one another resulting in open fissures and volcanic activity.

Grindavík Fishing Village

Next up is the home of “The Great Geysir” hot spring, which all geysers are named after. This area is an impressive collage of bubbling mud pools, hissing steam vents, and colorful algae deposits. Strokkur geyser puts on quite the show every few minutes blasting boiling water high up into the air.

Blue Lagoon

All the remarkable sites on the Reykjanes peninsula help you understand the powerful nature of Iceland and the creational beauty of the Blue Lagoon. If you have chosen to end the day in the geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon you are in for a treat. Only half an hour drive from the continental bridge is the unique blue lagoon hidden in an impressive black lava field.

The Blue Lagoon, known in Icelandic as Bláa Lónið, is a geothermal spa/resort located on the Reykjanes peninsula. The lagoon itself has been hailed as being one of the modern wonders of the world, growing massively in popularity since it started being used in 1976.

The lagoon is manmade with the water being fed in through a local Geothermal water plant that supplied hot water to the nearby towns. In 1971 workers at the plant created the initial pool as a bathing and relaxation site. By 1981 locals were joining them leading to the eventual formation of the Blue Lagoon company in 1992 and the construction of the facilities that service the lagoons guests today.

Heading back to Reykjavík at the end of the day we drive through the charming fishing town Hafnarfjörður, known for silly jokes, Vikings and Elves.
