Tour Description

In this fantastic layover tour, you will be picked up by a local Viking guide (don’t worry, he won’t be dressed in a costume) from Reykjavik between 08:30 and 09:00. He will take you around Reykjanes for 6 hours to see Reykjanes‘s most beautiful spots. While he´s showing you around, he will tell you stories of elves and trolls.

First stop is the geothermal area in an active volcano. Seltun hot springs in Krysuvik. This place offers you to see boiling hot water running from the ground.

A short drive down from the volcano and you will visit Krysuvikurberg cliffs. There you will see where the lava meets the ocean.

Who is hungry? At Grindavik fishing village you will make a stop for lunch. Lobster and lamb meat soup will be offered there(included).

Walking path near the Blue Lagoon is next. There, you are surrounded by beautiful lava formations in an almost surreal environment.

Kirkjuvogsbásar cliffs are further up North. The days there are never the same. The ocean controls the days there. Marvelling at the waves breaking at the cliffs is so… Well we have no words for it. It literally takes all of your words.

Continue you drive from the European part of Iceland over to the North American part. There you will visit the bridge between Europe and America. Nowhere else in the world you can walk between these two continents than here in Iceland. If you are in love or not, you can put your love lock in this bridge. Like in Paris. The landscape over there is so spectacular and different from anything else. It is like another planet.

Last stop 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 will be dropped off at the airport around 3pm.

We hope to see you!
