Departure Time

8:30 AM
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).

Interesting sights of Reykjanes. Small group and Gummi was a guide with a lot of knowledge and he let us enough time to explore the sights.

This tour was very good, from pick up on time through to drop off at pre arranged destination. The route was so scenic and fascinating, and the knowledge of the area by our Scottish driver, Ian, was interesting and really informative about local traditions, geology and the history of the island and area. I would highly recommend this tour as it's not such a touristy area to tour and few people were around. My only criticism would be for the guide to provide a length of time allowed during each stop, as a clear guideline so the passengers know how long they have i.e for lunch or to view a certain area.

Do yourself a favor and book this trip! It was amazing and very well organized. Andres (our guide) was very professional, knowledgeable, funny and communicative. He also offered to send us hi own pics via email. We have seen many amazing places and stopped at the small port cafe to eat an amazing lobster soup! The Gateway to Iceland is one of the two the best travel companies we used in Iceland. We will definitely use their services in the future when we will be back to the land of fire and ice! Thank you a lot!

This tour takes you into an area that's not as well known as others. We visited in November when the mountains were fully covered in snow. It was so beautiful. Our guide Trond was great, timed it perfectly to see some sheep being brought in from the land for the winter.

I didn’t have enough time with other tours as my flight was at 5pm back to Canada - the Reykjanes tour was just perfect - a relatively quiet region from the bulk of the tourists but filled with many hidden gems. The drop off at the airport timed after the tour finished was a cherry on top.

Brilliant trip and our guide, Bjorn, was very informative and managed to stop at 2-3 unplanned places. Nice small group on the mini bus tour which I would highly recommend versus travelling in a larger coach. Thoroughly enjoyed the day, and whilst there were some places we enjoyed more than others, overall it was a great day out. The weather was glorious and I think this perhaps helped with the enjoyment. Only downside was that we didnt receive a confirmation prior to departure and the pass in my wallet app only gave limited information about the trip.

The tour was amazing! We had a small tour group 10 people so it was very personalized. Bjorn was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and timed our stops perfectly as to avoid the big tour groups. My girlfriend and I did this tour on our last day in Iceland. We were staying in Reykajavik and were looking for a way to do some sightseeing on our way back to the airport. This tour did not disappoint. I would definitely heed their advice about wearing warm clothing. It was windy and rainy for much of the tour.
