What can you expect to see on this Reykjanes Tour? Included in UNESCO Global Geopark, Reykjanes is truly a gem. This crucible of geothermal energy, seismic activity, and tectonic movements is hidden in plain sight. It is a welcome sign to many tourists who come and visit Iceland by plane and, as such, Reykjanes has often been unjustly overlooked. Until now.
We will start our Reykjanes tour by visiting two beautiful lakes: Kleifarvatn and Graenavatn. Both of them being spectacular places to be captured on photos and everyone to enjoy. Have we mentioned there are rumors of odd creatures hiding in their depths? Prepare to be amazed when facing multi-colored hills of Krysuvik, before continuing your way to Gunnuhver – geothermal area of mud pools with a ghost story embedded in its past.
For those of you interested in wildlife, you will have the chance to see many different types of birds when standing on the cliffs of Valahnukar. If your interest lies more in urban development, you will get to see Iceland’s oldest and most popular lighthouse – Reykjanesviti.
The highlight of the tour is walking between the two continental plates, crossing over the famous “Bridge between the continents”.
This Reykjanes tour can be perfect for your last day as it combines a relatively unexplored part of Iceland with transfers to either Keflavik (the international airport) or the Blue Lagoon. If you do not have a flight to catch, stay with the tour as we head back to Reykjavik. You are left with plenty of daytime to enjoy the capital after we drop you off back at your hotel/downtown Reykjavik.
The airport drop off is suitable when your departure flight time is at 4:00 PM (16:00) and later.
Blue Lagoon: if you want to visit the Blue Lagoon, you need to book the entry by yourself, we recommend to book for 3:00 PM (15:00). Make your reservation well in advance. You will have to take the bus back to Reykjavik by yourself.
Drop off at Reykjavik hotels: at ca 3:30 PM (15:30).
