Drive south from the capital on this very popular Reykjavik excursion and head to Lake Kleifarvatn
, which may or may not hold a spooky secret. Legend has it that this huge, 1km long lake, is home to a whale-sized worm although there have been no confirmed sightings! The lake is eerie and surrounded by a jet black lavascape, black cliffs and black sand shores so beware!
A little further on is the geothermal area at Krisuvik
. Here you can walk amongst hissing steam vents, solfataras and bubbling mud pots with the unmistakable smell of sulphur hanging in the air. Youll also be able to feel the power of Mother Nature beneath your feet as the ground seems to rumble. Continue the tour, visiting small fishing villages that dot the area before reaching the tip of the peninsula. Here you will find the roaring North Atlantic and huge bird cliffs which stand guard over moon-like, craggy lava fields.
To end this superjeep tour you have two options to visit the Blue Lagoon or drive straight to Keflavik:
1) Drive to the world-famous Blue Lagoon and be amazed at the size of this pale blue run off from the nearby geothermal energy plant. You can choose to walk around and take photos of, for a small additional cost, go swimming in the theraputic, warm waters.
2) Drive to the airport ready for your flight home.
This half day tour is ideal for anyone who has limited time in Iceland and it is certain to whet your appetite and make you want to come back for more!
