Product Description

What can you expect to see on this Reykjanes 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 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.

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 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

Attention: Are you visiting in June or July? Then we highly recommend checking our Midnight Sun Hot Golden Circle tour which departs after Reykjanes tour is back to Reykjavik with a pickup 6:00 – 6:30 pm (18:00 – 18:30) and therefore gives you the opportunity to use your time in Iceland very efficiently and do two great tours in one day!

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!

Fantastic tour of Reykjanes peninsula


This tour was amazing with plenty of variety and lots to see. Our guide Ian was very funny and extremely knowledgable. A great day!

Reykjanes Peninsula

daisy8225, New Jersey

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!!

3 tours in 2 days!

ErinR1980; Washington DC, District of Columbia

We booked 3 tours with this company as we only were in Iceland as a stopover with 2 full days and 2 partial days (arrival and departure days). Being summer, we had the opportunity to take 3 tours, though, as you can do the Reykjanes tour and then go on the midnight sun hot golden circle tour that same evening. We also did the South Shore Adventure. All 3 tours were fantastic with great guides - Andres F, Ian, and another whose name I cannot remember :( The sites were great, the guides informative and funny and interesting, offering both information as well as stories and commentary on Icelandic culture and history. I did not know initially when I booked where we would be staying, so had to secure the pick up location with the company by e mail after booking and was a little nervous about making sure we had the right location for each of the 3 tours, but it was no problem at all. The smaller groups also allow the guides to change things according to weather, crowds, and the preferences of the group, so the order might be changed a bit, which really helps to avoid downpours at certain sites or the largest crowds, etc. I recommend the midnight sun tour because it does maximize your time in Iceland if limited, plus the crowds are much smaller, and or someone of a more southern latitude, it is a really unique experience to be able to walk around at midnight with the sun still light enough to see the sites and take photos.

“Great tour operator for small groups”


Did two tours with them while over there - Golden Circle and Reykjanes, and both were great, and we literally experienced Iceland in all weather. The drive on the Reykjanes tour especially became really challenging due to sudden snow storms, but we still saw everything as promised and the tour guide was funny and always happy to talk / give out more inf / answer questions. Small groups definitely were a main reason for choosing them, as I could not stand the idea of the big tour coach with 100 people on it.
Meant we had lots more time at the various stops, to take in the majestic nature and especially on the Golden Circle, where we had a rare super sunny day throughout, it never felt rushed.
