Reykjanes Peninsula – Private Tour
Icelands’s best kept secret
We start the tour in Reykjavik or Keflavik (Leifur Eriksson Air Terminal), as applicable. We visit Grindavik, one of Iceland’s fishing villages where a visit to the “Saltfisksetrid” Museum is optional. And we drive to the west along southern Reykjanes peninsula, past Gunnuhver where we will observe active geothermal areas. Next, the tour leads to the country’s oldest lighthouse, “Reykjanesviti” where spectacular birdlife can be viewed. On a clear day you can see the small island of Eldey about 10 miles from the shore (16 km). At the next stop is, “The Bridge Between Continents”, where the Eurasian and North America Plates are being forced apart, the geological record is clearly defined.
This tour takes about 3-4 hours.
We can pick you up at your accommodation or at the cruise ship dock in Reykjavík.
If you want to do this tour as a part of a stopover from Keflavík, please be in touch and we’ll make you an offer.
