Definitely make a tour of this area be your first priority upon landing at Keflavik airport. It's compact enough to see many of the highlights in a day before heading to Reykjavik and very rewarding. There's such a variety of things to see, from barren...More

This was a spontaeneous drive since my friend and I were at the hot spring - and it was totally worth it. The peninsula was amazing and I think it was the best views I've had in Iceland. There was a bit of a trek...More

This is a very interesting place to visit to see and photograph and study the unique rock and lava formations. The massive waves of the Atlantic Ocean hitting the lava lined coast line is something interesting to behold. There are also the bubbling hot water...More
