We say: Reykjanes is so under rated! This rocky peninsula has the international airport at one end and a big highway to Reykjavík running right through it. Few people check out the south side of the peninsula before taking the highway North, so Reykjanes is both one of the most and least visited places on the island. But that means that often you’ll be quite alone in these dramatic landscapes.

There is no running water on the peninsula, so no waterfalls here, we’re in volcano territory. This tour takes you on a small bus to see lakes, lava fields, steaming mud pools, bird cliffs and the Bridge Between Continents. It’s quite amazing the range of geothermal sites accessible all year round in just 40 minutes from Reykjavik. Compared to Landmannalaugar, the pearl of Iceland geothermal sites, Reykjanes is smaller but packs its punch, AND you can go there all year round.

You can be dropped off in Reykjavík or at Blue Lagoon, but remember to book entry well in advance. 3pm entry is ideal, and then you’ll pay on the bus directly for the shuttle back to town. Or get a drop off at KEF airport, suitable for flights after 4pm.

Ideal for you if: You want to see some dramatic lunar landscapes in a small group but not spend a long time travelling there, or if you want to fit in some isghtseeing before your afternoon flight
