Private Reykjanes Peninsula & The new Fagradalsfjall volcano with Blue Lagoon as optional
Lake Kleifarvatn spooky secret: legend has it that this 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.
The Superjeep excursion then takes you to Krisuvík where you can walk amongst hissing steam vents, solfataras and bubbling mud pots with the unmistakable smell of sulphur hanging in the air. You‘ll also be able to feel the power of Mother Nature beneath your feet as the ground seems to rumble.
We do offer hiking to the new volcano, the hike to the new eruption site is a minimum of 7 km (approximately 4,5 miles) one way with an incline of about 300 meters (0,2 miles) so the route there and back is about 14 km (9 miles). The route is on very hard terrain and up very steep hills close to the crater. The hike itself can take around 4-5 hours at least, the hike route can change at short notice, we also offer helicopter addon option (weather depending) on our Private Reykjanes Peninsula tour
The tour continues with visits to the 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.
We will then proceed to the Blue Lagoon, from where you can be dropped off at the airport upon request.
This tour lasts highly recommended by us for those who have limited time to experience Iceland. Airport drop-off is not included in the price of the tour. Admission to the Blue lagoon is not included in the price & is depending on availability
