Product Description

What can you expect to see on this Reykjanes Geopark tour? Included in the UNESCO Global Geopark, Reykjanes is truly a gem. This crucible of geothermal energy, seismic activity, and tectonic movements is hidden in plain sight. It is a welcome sign to many tourists who come and visit Iceland by plane and, as such, Reykjanes has often been unjustly overlooked…until now.

We will start our Reykjanes Geopark tour by visiting two beautiful lakes: Kleifarvatn and Graenavatn. Both of them being spectacular places to be captured on photos and for everyone to enjoy. Have we mentioned there are rumors of odd creatures hiding in their depths? Prepare to be amazed when facing multi-colored hills of Krysuvik, before continuing your way to Gunnuhver – a geothermal area of mud pools with a ghost story embedded in its past.

You will take a refreshment stop in a fishing town Grindavík and after that, you will head out to lava cliffs Brimketill. The wild ocean waves carved a small “pool” into the edge of the cliffs. The waves are very wild there even in relatively calm weather. But the worse the weather the more exciting the experience. Be aware of the breaking waves otherwise, you might get wet.

For those of you interested in wildlife, you will have the chance to see many different types of birds when standing on the cliffs of Valahnukar. If your interest lies more in urban development, you will get to see Iceland’s oldest and most popular lighthouse – Reykjanesviti.

The highlight of the tour is walking between the two continental plates, crossing over the famous “Bridge between the continents”.

This Reykjanes Geopark tour is perfect for your last day as it combines a relatively unexplored part of Iceland with transfers to either Keflavik (KEF- the international airport) or the Blue Lagoon. If you do not have a flight to catch, stay with the tour as we head back to Reykjavik. You are left with plenty of daytime to enjoy the capital after we drop you off back at your hotel/downtown Reykjavik.

The airport drop off is approximately 2.30 PM (14:30), which is suitable when your departure flight time is at 4:00 PM (16:00) and later.

Blue Lagoon: if you want to visit the Blue Lagoon, you need to book the entry by yourself (click here to book). We recommend to book for 3:00 PM (15:00) as drop off there would be around 2.45 PM (14:45). Make your reservation well in advance. You will have to take the bus back to Reykjavik by yourself, but there are regular buses and you can pay the fare on the bus.

Drop off in Reykjavik: Around 3:30 PM (15:30) which gives you time to rest and enjoy downtown Reykjavik

This trip is etched on my memory forever

Gummi our guide was amazing. He handled the adverse weather conditions like the pro that he is. The way that he gives you information about the area that you are in is easy to understand and he then adds his own little bits of knowledge in there as well, makes for a great trip.
The scenery is breathtaking. I think most people discount this area as it hasn't got the big push by the Icelandic tourist board!! We got to see lava fields, spectacular coastal views, geothermal activity, icy lakes and tonnes of snow.
The lunch break stop is a lovely little cafe/restaurant which served delicious brunch.

Beautiful landscape and amazing nature

We booked this tour last minute after changing our minds over a different tour. Firstly, Gateway to Iceland dealt with this change professionally and quickly with no issue re the difference in cost and we received a refund for this difference promptly. As for the at out, it was a lovely way to spend our last day in Iceland. The geothermal and mud pools are an amazing natural phenomenon and so interesting. The scenery throughout the day was lovely and the Valahnukar cliffs formed through a volcanic eruption were gorgeous, with an added bonus of the nesting areas. Our guide, Andreas A was very knowledgeable and friendly. He took us to a lovely café for a stop off - we can recommend the meringue cake (a slice between two was plenty). Walking the bridge between the plates itself is nothing special, it's a bridge, but the fact that you can see this piece of nature close up is excellent. This is a shorter trip than most which gives you time in Reykjavik or the Blue Lagoon (drop off available here) or just to relax at the end of your day.

Hidden gem! :)

My friend and I went on the Reykjanes tour with Bjorn. Honestly we really weren't expecting much from this tour, since Reykjanes peninsula didn't seem like a popular tourist destination; we just booked it because we had a flight to catch later in the afternoon and we figured this could be a way to squeeze in some sightseeing before being dropped off at the airport (the tour drops you off at the Keflavik airport or the Blue Lagoon at the end). Contrary to our low expectations, this tour was wonderful! We were able to see very beautiful shorelines and geothermal areas before leaving Iceland, and I felt that Reykjanes peninsula was well worth a visit. I would definitely recommend this tour, especially for people who have late afternoon flights out of Keflavik airport or will be visiting the Blue Lagoon.

Great tour of Reykjanes

I had an excellent tour of the Reykjanes Geopark with Andres and a small international group of five others. With such a small group, it was a very relaxed, friendly, and interactive day, and Andres was a great guide. We began with an unexpected stop at the home of Iceland’s president just outside Reykjavík and then continued on around the Reykjanes peninsula with visits to Kleyfarvatn and Graenavatn lakes and the impressive Seltun geothermal area before stopping for lunch in the harbor of the little fishing village of Grindavik. After lunch, we moved on to the Gunnuhver hot springs and nearby coastal cliffs and sea stacks at the southwestern tip of the peninsula, and finally to a section of the rift between the North American and European tectonic plates. Reykjanes is really an underappreciated gem with a bit of everything, and Gateway is one of the few companies offering tours there. For me, it was a great choice.

Great way to spend the morning before flying out!

The tour bus was well marked and prompt in picking us up. David is a very personable driver who shared with us many different insights on the area. Tour was well planned, but not so restricted as to prevent impromptu stops for things of interest (like horses by the roadside)! The tour was a very nice way to finish our visit to Iceland and get us to the airport as well, killing 2 birds with one stone. Bus was clean and well maintained. Whether staying in Iceland or moving on to other locales, I would recommend this tour!

Reykjanes Peninsula

We recently toured the Reykjanes Peninsula. Hilmar, was our guide/driver. He was fantastic. It was obvious that he is very proud of his country and wants to share it with you. We learned a lot of very interesting information about Iceland and the area we were visiting. He allowed us as much time as we wanted at each site. We were never felt rushed. We were dropped off at the airport with plenty of time to make our flight. The Reykjanes Peninsula was beautiful!!
