What To Expect
On the way out of Reykjavik, take Nesjavellir Road and stop in the Nesavellir geothermal region. The volcano here makes the area the warmest in the capital. Continue to Þhingvellir National Park, which includes the fault line between the American and Eurasian tectonic plates. The park is also home to the world's oldest democratic parliament and an ancient church.
Drive through the town of Laugarvatn on the way to visit the Strokkur geyser, which erupts every 6 to 8 minutes. Here, take a break for lunch or coffee (own expense) before proceeding to see the lovely waterfall called Gullfoss.
Stop at the Kerið crater, then visit the town of Hveragerði before continuing down to the Reykanes peninsula. Bring your swim suit for the visit to the famous Blue Lagoon, located near Grindavík. Take a dip in the bright blue geothermal waters, set against a dramatic backdrop of lava. Slather on some geothermal mud, rich in silica and minerals, to end your tour with a healthy glow.
Optional: a visit to Hafnarfjörður (additional price).
Your tour ends back in Reykjavik with hotel or port drop-off.
