REYKJANES CIRCLE

This tour begins on a unique note, as we visit the Bridge Between Continents, a bridge that crosses the continental divide between the North-American and Eurasian tectonic plates.

Iceland is the only place in the world where the divide between the plates is so visible.

When we are done crossing between continents, we head to the boiling mud pools known as Gunnuhver, a site of otherworldly natural beauty. Close by is Iceland's oldest lighthouse, which you will see up close as we hike along the magnificent cliffs and experience the full power of the ocean.

The town of Grindavík is our next stop. Lunch is served there (lobster or lamb soup) and stop by the nearby Blue Lagoon for some photo opportunities. We then drive along the south coast, enjoying some magnificent scenery along the way.

A 40 minute drive brings us to the scenic geothermal area of Seltún, or Krýsuvík. On the way back, we go past the beautiful lake Kleifarvatn and pass through the town of Hafnarfjörður, known for its association with both Vikings and elves.

This tour is a favourite of many guides and travellers.
