Overview

Visit the dramatic Reykjanes peninsula on a 6-hour tour from Reykjavík, and spend the day exploring scenic lakes, geothermic areas, a historic fishing town, and bubbling mud pools, including a trip across the ‘Bridge Between the Continents,’ which links Reykjavik’s two tectonic plates. This 6-hour Reykjanes tour includes pickup and drop-off from central Reykyavik, with the option to end the day at the Blue Lagoon or Keflavik International Airport.
  • 6-hour minibus tour of Reykjanes peninsula
  • See geothermal activity and sites
  • Visit a fishing village and historic lighthouse
  • Cross the bridge between Iceland's tectonic plates
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Pickup and drop-off in central Reykjavik
Meet a driver at your centrally located hotel; bus stop, if your hotel isn't on the pick-up list; or at the Reykjavík cruise port, then board a climate-controlled minibus for the trip to the Reykjanes peninsula. The first stop of the day is Kleifarvatn Lake, which tops a fissure zone, and is fed entirely from underground, then you’ll continue to Graenavatn, a small lake in a volcanic crater with brilliant teal-colored water.
Keep driving to the multicolored hills of Krysuvik, where you can stretch your legs on a walk between the bubbling hot springs. Pause for lunch at the harbor town of Grindavik—you can bring your own or purchase lunch upon arrival—then head to the geothermal mud pools of Gunnuhver, where you’ll hear the spot’s fascinating ghost story.
Watch for birds along this stretch of coast, and visit Reykjanesviti, the oldest lighthouse in Iceland. The last highlight of the tour is crossing the “Bridge Between the Continents” driving between Iceland’s two tectonic plates.
This tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point, at the Keflavik International Airport for flights departing 4pm or later, or at the Blue Lagoon (please note your desired drop-off point when booking).

I didn’t have enough time with other tours as my flight was at 5pm back to Canada - the Reykjanes tour was just perfect - a relatively quiet region from the bulk of the tourists but filled with many hidden gems. The drop off at the airport timed after the tour finished was a cherry on top.

Brilliant trip and our guide, Bjorn, was very informative and managed to stop at 2-3 unplanned places. Nice small group on the mini bus tour which I would highly recommend versus travelling in a larger coach.

Thoroughly enjoyed the day, and whilst there were some places we enjoyed more than others, overall it was a great day out. The weather was glorious and I think this perhaps helped with the enjoyment.

Only downside was that we didnt receive a confirmation prior to departure and the pass in my wallet app only gave limited information about the trip.

The tour was amazing! We had a small tour group 10 people so it was very personalized. Bjorn was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and timed our stops perfectly as to avoid the big tour groups. My girlfriend and I did this tour on our last day in Iceland. We were staying in Reykajavik and were looking for a way to do some sightseeing on our way back to the airport. This tour did not disappoint. I would definitely heed their advice about wearing warm clothing. It was windy and rainy for much of the tour.

Our trip was okay, The sites were amazing, but the tour guide wasn't as informative as we had experienced on previous tours. He told unusual stories and had a conversation with one member of our tour. We didn't get much information about the landscape, or the history of the towns or sites seen. Also, we made a quick stop at a gas station for lunch, not what we expected. He was pressed to get one of the tourists to the Blue Lagoon at her 2:00 reservation . We were advised by the tour company to book our reservation at the Blue Lagoon after 3:00 so we could take advantage of the full tour. We then had to wait almost 2 hours at the Blue Lagoon because we got there earlier than we were told. Also, we were staying at an AirBnb they didn't pick us up at our address we had to walk to meet the tour at a hotel. The other tours we took picked us up at our door. The tour was not worth the price.
