See different types of hot springs and steep cliffs with ocean waves breaking ashore. At the tip of Reykjanes Peninsula you will see where the Mid Atlantic Ridge rises from the ocean to become part of the land.
We head south from the capital on this very popular Reykjavik excursion and head to Lake Kleifarvatn. Set within a volcanic fissure, this large lake, around 100 metres deep, is said to be home to a strange, mythical creature. The lake is eerie and surrounded by a jet black lavascape, black cliffs and black sand shores so beware!
A little further on we stop at the geothermal area at Seltun, also known as Krysuvik. Here you are able to walk amongst hissing steam vents, solfataras and bubbling mud pots with the unmistakable smell of sulfur hanging in the air.
You will also be able to feel the power of nature as the ground beneath your feet seems to rumble.
Next we visit the small fishing villages which dot this area before reaching the tip of the peninsula. Here you will find the roaring North Atlantic and huge bird cliffs which stand guardian over the moon-like and craggy lava fields.
This half day tour is also ideal for anyone who has limited time in Iceland. It is certain to whet your appetite and leave you wanting to come back for more!
