Reykjanes Peninsula True Colorful Gem
Experience the nature and the culture of Reykjanes peninsula. You will enjoy the breath-taking nature of Reykjanes followed by a unique cultural experience.
Reykjanes, with its diversity of volcanic and geothermal activity, is the youngest peninsula in Iceland and a geopark. The first stop will be in Seltún, Krýsuvík; a stunning, colorful mud spring area. We will stop here for an easy hike to enjoy the scenery. We continue to one of the main fishing ports in Iceland, Grindavík where we will have lunch at one of the local cafés. After lunch, we will drive along the coast and proceed to the edge of Reykjanes peninsula, passing the oldest lighthouse in Iceland, Reykjanesviti. Here we will stop to enjoy the sight of the magnificent cliffs and waves and to feel the breeze from the open sea.
We continue to “the bridge between the continents”. Iceland is probably the only place in the world where the effects of two major tectonic plates drifting apart can easily be observed above sea level. The Mid-Atlantic Ridge comes ashore right at Reykjanes, crossing the country from the south-west heading north-east. Here you will be able to walk over the bridge from the Eurasian continent to the North American continent.
At the end of the day we will enjoy entertainment and meet a local artist.
