The youngest part of Iceland is a Geothermal hot spot with vast lava fields and bubbling hot springs.
Reykjanes Peninsula is like taking 3 tours at once. You get a bit of the Golden Circle, of the South Shore and have the Blue Lagoon. All in one day! All in just a short distance from Reykjavik and Keflavik Airport. As a bonus, the peninsula is less crowded than its two big brothers. Here are some sights you can check out on your tour.
Iceland is famous for its green energy. In the visitor centre, you can learn more about how the power of the earth is transformed into electricity. Also how hot water is produced to make you feel nice and cosy in the hot swimming pools.
A small valley of bubbling mud and hot steam. Here the warm energy is rising to the surface. A rainy day will make the area look even more mysterious. Please remember to stay on the marked path, the hot springs can be unpredictable.
The small fishing village is a perfect place to get fresh fish for lunch. There are restaurants alongside the harbour. You might even get to see the fishing boats bring in the catch of the day.
An impressive explosion of steam, almost like an everlasting geyser. The roar is just as impressive as the cloud it produces. Depending on the direction of the wind, the steam can blow right over the walking path. It’s not going to burn you, but you will get a bit wet. Perfect for some mystical selfies in a cloud.
Like on the Golden Circle tour, the signs of the tectonic plates gliding apart is also visible here. A gap has formed in the landscape and a bridge built right over it. Here you can literally walk from Europe to America.
