Reykjanes Peninsula, although still rather underrated, in fact, hides a lot of treasures. Its numerous craters, caves and vast lava fields were established as Reykjanes Unesco Global Geopark in 2015.
It is geologically one of Iceland’s most active regions, with the Mid-Atlantic Ridge rises from the ocean and running right through it.
Geothermal activity is visible at every step, incl. the unique Blue Lagoon as well as the geothermal sites of the hot spring Gunnuhver, where you can really feel the power of nature, and Krisuvik. Both geothermal areas offer exciting boardwalks between bubbling mud pots, steaming vents and solfataras surrounded by multi-coloured soils.
After Gunnuhver we will head to Brimketill. Brimketill is known for huge waves from the Atlantic Ocean colliding with the volcanic landscape.
