REYKJANES – PRIVATE TOUR

Ideal for those who want to see as much as possible, with little driving

The fact is that the Reykjanes Peninsula is a treasure chest of attractions, both natural and cultural. We can include the Blue Lagoon as a part the tour.

Now… the program! 🙂 Where do we go? We begin with Lake Kleifarvatn and the hot springs of Krýsuvík, named Seltún. These locations are part of the Reykjanes Unesco Geopark. We’ll see a Ship Wreck from 1988 and then pay a visit to the fishing village of Grindavík and look at its harbour.

Then we head to the ever changing hot springs of Gunnuhver, the Reykjanes Lighthouse, and the Valahnúkar Cliffs, where the Atlantic Ridge comes ashore. The next stop will help you understand more about the geology of Iceland, as we stand on the Bridge Between Continents. But first we enjoy the black-sand beach of Sandvík, which was one of the shooting locations of the movie ‘Flags of Our Fathers’. Then driving along the rugged coastline we find Garður and its two very photogenic lighthouses. During the summer time it should be possible to see quite a lot of bird life in some of these areas.

At the end of the tour we have a cultural visit to the Viking World, which is optional to go in. You’ll learn about how the vikings sailed to America a thousand years ago! Then we come by the Blue Lagoon to see the beautiful blue silica water and the lava, and then return to Reykjavík.

REVIEW: “Best way to discover Iceland!”

[…] The best thing is that you don’t go with a crowded bus, but you enjoy a trip which is nearly private. Both guides were knowledgeable and nice and you really see lots of landscapes and places that you wouldn’t be able to see if you go with a bus or by yourself, especially in winter!

REVIEW: “Adventure with our very own Viking!”

a fantastic guide, full of information about Iceland and it’s history keeping us entertained on a journey along the south coast which we will never forget. Thank you for probably the best trip of my life!
