Wonders of Reykjanes and Blue Lagoon Tour 

The Reykjanes Geopark is located on a peninsula divided between two continents. This unique placement of the Reykjanes Peninsula on the drift zone between the North American and the Eurasian continental plates makes it a true Volcanic Wonder.

Reykjanes Geopark 

We start the day by exploring one of the most iconic features of the Icelandic volcanic landscape, the boiling mud pools of Seltún, and the steaming colorful surrounding landscape. As we drive along the Reykjanes peninsula, you are constantly in the presence of the roaring Atlantic Ocean, endless lava fields, and volcanic craters. An alien landscape decorated by windblown palagonite and petrified troll formations.

Fagradalsfjall Volcano 

Next up in our adventure is Iceland’s youngest volcano, Fagradalsfjall Volcano, and the surrounding lava fields. The hike to the craters takes about 1 hour, where you can explore the devastating yet beautiful aftermath of this recent volcanic eruption.

Please wear good hiking shoes, warm clothes, and waterproof layers!

Don’t forget about a bottle of water, gloves and a hat. 

After the volcano hike, we stop by the Bridge Between Continents, where you can walk between the continental plates that divide the peninsula. This stop underlines this unique placement directly on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

Before dropping you off at the Blue Lagoon, we stop by the largest mud pool in Iceland, Gunnuhver. You can feel the ground shake from the enormous power released from the boiling water and steam.

Comfort Admission is included in this tour, so it’s the use of a towel, a silica mud mask, one drink of your choice, and the entrance to the pool. Please bring your swimsuit.
