Reykjanes Peninsula Tour
Reykjanes Peninsula – lava fields, volcanoes and strong geothermal activity
Reykjanes Peninsula is a sizzling geo park with bubbling geothermal fields where boiling mud pits are a common sight in many beautiful colours emitting fumes into the air. The Kleyfarvatn volcanic lake and the Greenlake/Grænavatn close by are the first stops and then you continue to the Birdge between the two continents where you have crunching black lava fields and very visible the rift between the two tectonic plates that are constantly drifting apart from each other. This is only one of the hundreds of open rifts and faults that are aligned following the massive Mid Atlantic Rift that goes diagonally through the country starting at the very tip of the Reykjanes tip and goes all the way across the country to the North East. The Reykjanes Light house and soaring sea cliffs bustling with various types of sea birds early summer are also a fantastic stop. Gunnuhver the largest mud spring in the country is also something not to be missed out on. 20 meters across it´s vigorously boiling clay is quite impressive in it´s volcanic surroundings.
