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.
