The day starts by driving up to the mountain range going over mountain tracks and experiencing all the geology wonders of Reykjanes peninsula. The landscape is similar to the moon’s surface, lava caves, mountain cliffs, and geothermal activity, with panoramic views. Next, we will visit the Seltun hot springs, where you can walk amongst hissing steam vents and solfataras and bubbling mud pots in many beautiful colors with the unmistakable smell of sulfur and feel the geothermal activity in the ground. Then we will drive to Selatangar to see the old ruins of a fishing outfit abolished after 1880, and then we will follow the coast and drive through the fishing village of Grindavik. Finally, continue to the tip of the peninsula where you will find the roaring North Atlantic breaking on the cliffs, and lava fields looking like the moon’s surface, before going to the Blue Lagoon where you can relax in the warm pool before returning to Reykjavík.
