WHAT TO EXPECT IN THIS TOUR
Experience the beauty and history
of this lava driven environment.
First, we visit Grindavik, one of Iceland’s fishing villages where a visit to the “Saltfisksetrid” Museum is optional. Then, 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. A visit to a museum in Gardur and one in Sandgerdi are options as is the Viking World Museum in Reykjanesbaer, where the Icelandic Viking ship “Islendingur” is preserved. Finally, those who wish may go and relax in the world’s famous Blue Lagoon.
Top Tip! Bring your swimming gear and add a stopover at the Blue Lagoon.
