This tour is a wonderful opportunity to see the extraordinary lava landscapes of the Reykjanes Peninsula, as well as do some cultural exploration, then relax in the he Blue Lagoon, where you can stay for as long as it's open.
We travel across lava fields, sighting bubbling hot springs; then along black sand beaches, past picturesque lighthouses, stopping at the spot where you can walk across the bridge between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates.
We visit Víkingaheimar, Viking World Museum, where you can learn about the area’s history, as well as see the exhibitions relating to Vikings, Viking ships and ancient voyages of discovery. A highlight is being able to step aboard a replica of the Viking ship Icelander and get a sense of the Viking voyages era. Please note that you might come across horses on this tour. Please let your tour operator know if you are alergic to horses or other house animals.
After a day of great sightseeing, interesting and fun experiences, we stop at the Blue Lagoon before returning to Reykjavik.

Reykjanes Peninsula is located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, one of the world's major tectonic plate boundaries. This is where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates are continuously drifting apart, having created huge rifts as a result of the tension that builds up as the plates diverge. The Leif the Lucky's Bridge, known as the Bridge between two continents, is a small footbridge over a major fissure at Sandvik, where you can clearly see evidence of this activity.
● The drop off in Reykjavik may sometimes not be right in front of your hotel/guesthouse due to narrow streets and actual coach size used during the tour.
