Included in UNESCO Global Geopark, Reykjanes is truly a gem. But this crucible of geothermal energy, seismic activity, and tectonic movements are hidden in plain sight. It is a welcome sign to many tourists who come and visit Iceland by plane, and as such Reykjanes is often unjustly overlooked. Until now.
Start your tour by visiting two beautiful lakes: Kleifarvatn and Grænavatn. Both of them being spectacular places for photographers to take pictures and everyone else to enjoy. There are rumours of odd creatures hiding in the 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 interested in wildlife, you will have the chance to observe many different types of birds when standing on the cliffs of Valhnukar. If your interest lies more in urban development, you will get to see Iceland’s most popular lighthouse - Reykjanesviti.
This tour can be perfect for your last day as it combines a relatively unexplored part of Iceland with transfers to either the international airport or the Blue Lagoon. And if you would rather head back to Reykjavik, you are left with plenty of daytime to enjoy the capital after being dropped off at your hotel/downtown Reykjavik.
