Through the surreal lunar landscape on route to our first stop of our day, we will find Kleifarvatn, the largest lake in Reykjanes Peninsula. The lake is well tucked in by mountains, it is great for a scenic walk on the black lava rock shore.
We will move on to Seltun hot springs where you will see mudpots and hot springs of different colors due to presence of minerals and thermal algae, red rocks, bluish-grey water, white steam with a sulphuric punch, it almost feels like you landed on a different planet.
We then have the option to literally be submerged in Iceland’s geothermal power – peacefully enjoying soaking in the famous Blue Lagoon in open space. The Blue Lagoon’s warm water and natural active ingredients: mineral salts, silica and blue green algae help you relax and unwind while the Blue Lagoon white silica mud gently cleanses and exfoliates the skin. The mineral salts balance and relax body and soul. After having enjoyed all the amenities of the Blue Lagoon, our driver guide will take you to our next stop.
We continue towards the southwestern tip of the peninsula where we will find Gunnuhver, a collection of mudpots and hot springs that are named after Gunnuhver the ghost, which was believed to have caused great disturbance to villages and was trapped to fall into the hot spring by a priest 400 years ago.
Not far from Gunnuhver we reach the second last stop of the tour, the Reykjanes Lighthouse This was where the first lighthouse was built in Iceland. The 1905 earthquake has severely damaged the structural integrity of the lighthouse, it was later demolished and rebuilt in 1908.
Before we head back to Reykjavik, we bring you back to the familiar earth where you will see the bridge between continents, it is a small footbridge that serves as a clear evidence whereby the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates are continuously drifting apart
