Description

Discover the rugged beauty of Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula on this private 6-hour tour from Reykjavik. Explore coastal towns and villages including Grindavík and Gunnuhver with a private guide, and gain insight into Iceland’s powerful geothermal activity. Watch native birds roosting on the shoreline beneath Reykjanesviti — the oldest lighthouse in Iceland — and see where the Eurasian and North American plates are moving deep underground. Perhaps visit museums at Garður, Reykjanesbær, or Sandgerdi (own expense) to learn of Iceland’s Viking history.

Following a pickup at your convenience at your Reykjavik hotel or the port, hop into your private vehicle and spin into the rugged countryside. With geothermal landscapes, tumbling waterfalls and hot geysers exploding from the earth, Iceland is widely considered among the world’s most exciting places to visit.

First, explore the coastal village of Grindavík — where traditional fishing boats bob in the harbor. Perhaps visit the Saltfisksetrid Museum (own expense) to gain insight into life here over centuries passed. Then, drive west along the Reykjanes Peninsula to Gunnuhver — famous for its powerful geothermal activity.

Admire native birdlife at Reykjanesviti — Iceland’s oldest lighthouse — and listen as your private guide sheds light on the diverse bird species living on the coast. On a clear day you can see the small island of Eldey, just a short distance from the shore.

Explore the area where the Eurasian and North American plates are being forced apart — deep below the Earth’s crust — and perhaps visit the museums in Garður, Reykjanesbær, or Sandgerdi (own expense) to learn of Iceland’s Viking heritage.

Then, return in comfort to your starting point in Reykjavik to conclude your tour.
