6-Hour Trip to Reykjanes by Minibus from Reykjavik
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.
What to Expect
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).

A great way to fill the day for an evening flight

We had a pleasant trip before leaving iceland. Arna our driver/guide explained everything, and made the trip enjoyable. Of all the different trips out of Reykjavik this was the least spectacular. But it did fill the time and let us see what was out there...More

Lucky to have a very nice and professional tour guide

The rhythm was a little bit rush, we hoped that we could explore the viewpoints more deeply. (A bit unsatisfied. So, 4 stars. :D) The tour guide knows almost everywhere. During the ride and the visit of viewpoints, he introduced many places including those were...More

Fantastic tour of the beautiful Reykjanes peninsula

In 6 hours you will see lava rock beaches, geysers, tectonic plates and other-worldly rock formations. This tour is jam packed with a taste of Iceland's varied landscapes. I would definitely recommend this tour!
