About
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.

What to expect
  • Meet your dedicated guide at your hotel or residence in Reykjavik. Board a private tour vehicle for the ride to the southwest corner of the country, known as the Reykjanes peninsula. During your journey, get to know your guide and let them know any special interests you have. This private tour is customizable and ensures personal attention for you and your group.  Your first stop is at Grindavik, an Icelandic fishing village where you can visit the Saltfisksetrid Museum, dedicated to the role of the salted fish industry in Iceland's history. Continue west, past Gunnuhver to see the active geothermal areas.  Visit Reykjanesviti, the country's oldest lighthouse, home to a fantastic array of native bird life. If the conditions are right, you will be able to see the tiny island of Eldey which sits 10 miles (16km) offshore.  Continue to the 'Bridge Between Continents', the rift where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are cleaving apart. Then, see the viking ship Islendingur, preserved at the Viking World Museum, and make optional stops at the Sandgerdi and Gardur museums. Finish your tour with a visit to the famous Blue Lagoon (optional, additional fees apply).  At the conclusion of your 5-hour tour, return to your accommodation in Reykjavik.

Tour was wonderful, guide prompt and courteous, great english and could explain everything we were seeing/visiting. Geysirs and geothermal area was unique and mind blowing!! Quirky light house with a wee café: try the coffee and love balls!! Lunch in a traditional Icelandic safe at a working harbour- meat soup and cakes -lip smackingly good! Not as full of other tourists as golden circle but just as good if not better-would recommend
