Make sure that you visit the bride that crosses between the Eurasian and American continental plates. The scenery across this area is brutal - molten lava and rocks make it an amazing sight. As well as the Blue Lagoon (of course!) visit Hafnir for a...More

These are Icelandic horses that were brought over by the settlers in the 9th Century. They are not as big as other horses but very sturdy and have a thick coat. I took the picture for my Grandson who loves horses. We saw people horseback...More

Close to the airport, a beautiful Peninsula to walk around, particularly if you have some time to spend waiting for a blue lagoon appointment. Lovely the stairs and walking paths. Especially recommend walking high up the promontory to have a beautiful view of the cliffs

We drove around the Reykjanes Peninsula in one day, it is easy to do as a day trip from Reykjavik. There is so much to see and do in this area with clear signs to attractions and information signs in English to explain the areas....More

This was surprisingly beautiful, lighthouses, bird cliffs, multicolored bubbling and steaming hot springs. Take two or three hours, stop along the way and enjoy. When in Gardur at the old smaller lighthouse it's worth spending the money on rather unpleasant coffee, regular tea, or nothing...More

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

The coast and the lighthouse at Reykjanes on of the viking routes to Vinland (America) and beyond. A fantastic coast line

We drove the coastline in March, windy but very little snow. Beautiful seascapes, towering cliffs, scenic lighthouses, and bubbling geothermic features. What's not to like. The drive back to Reykjavik on Hwy 42 is absolutely stunning. Washrooms are scarce, so make sure to stop in...More
