    What to Expect
    Meet a driver at your centrally located hotel; bus stop, if your hotel isn't on the pick-up list; or at the Reykjavík cruise port, then board a climate-controlled minibus for the trip to the Reykjanes peninsula. The first stop of the day is Kleifarvatn Lake, which tops a fissure zone, and is fed entirely from underground, then you’ll continue to Graenavatn, a small lake in a volcanic crater with brilliant teal-colored water.

    Keep driving to the multicolored hills of Krysuvik, where you can stretch your legs on a walk between the bubbling hot springs. Pause for lunch at the harbor town of Grindavik—you can bring your own or purchase lunch upon arrival—then head to the geothermal mud pools of Gunnuhver, where you’ll hear the spot’s fascinating ghost story.

    Watch for birds along this stretch of coast, and visit Reykjanesviti, the oldest lighthouse in Iceland. The last highlight of the tour is crossing the “Bridge Between the Continents” driving between Iceland’s two tectonic plates.

    This tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point, at the Keflavik International Airport for flights departing 4pm or later, or at the Blue Lagoon (please note your desired drop-off point when booking).
