You will be picked up by bus from your hotel in Reykjavik for this Reykjanes Peninsula and Blue Lagoon Tour. You’ll be accompanied by an English-speaking guide that will help tease out the mysteries of the stirring Icelandic landscape.
Drive out of the capital to the Reykjanes Peninsula, where the mid-Atlantic ridge rises from the ocean. More than half of the peninsula is covered with lava flows, some of which are only a few hundred years old. You will see lava cones and craters of all shapes and sizes, which bespeak the mercurial volcanic activity of the area.
Head for the lighthouse on the westernmost tip of the peninsula, an area rich with bird life in the summer.
Continue through the lava fields to the quaint fishing village of Grindavík, which will give you a sense of small-town life in Iceland.
Close out your tour with a trip to the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa where you can bathe in soothing blue-green waters as steam rises in spectral wisps from the surface.
If you are short on time and are not able to fit the Blue Lagoon into your schedule, a transfer is provided to Keflavik International Airport or back to Reykjavik.
All others will be returned to their Reykjavik hotel after a relaxing time at the lagoon.
