On the way out of Reykjavik, take Nesjavellir Road and stop in the Nesavellir geothermal region. The volcano here makes the area the warmest in the capital.

The park is also home to the world's oldest democratic parliament and an ancient church.

Stop at the Kerið crater, then visit the town of Hveragerði before continuing down to the Reykanes peninsula. Bring your swim suit for the visit to the famous Blue Lagoon, located near Grindavík. Take a dip in the bright blue geothermal waters, set against a dramatic backdrop of lava. Slather on some geothermal mud, rich in silica and minerals, to end your tour with a healthy glow.
