Welcome to Reykjanes
Jutting out into the North Atlantic Ocean, just south of Reykjavik, the Reykjanes Peninsula is known for its otherworldly volcanic and geothermal landscapes. Most visitors to Iceland touch down on the peninsula at Keflavík Airport and return to visit the famed Blue Lagoon, but Reykjanes merits a longer look. A UNESCO Global Geopark, travelers keep busy exploring volcanic craters, caves, dramatic fissures, bird-filled sea cliffs, lava fields, and black-sand beaches. Visiting the Bridge Between Continents and the Icelandic Museum of Rock ’n’ Roll are also top things to do in Reykjanes.
