This day tour departs from Reykjavik and from there we will enter the rough mountain tracks of Hellisheidi to explore the fascinating thermal activity of the ancient Hengill volcano.
After a short walk between boiling hot springs and bubbling mud pools, we continue to the greenhouse village of Hveragerði. After that, we will stop for lunch in a small fishing village before heading towards the Reykjanes peninsula.
Driving along the southern coast of the Reykjanes peninsula we visit the black beach of the Atlantic coast and look for seals. Continuing on, we’ll see and explore a few craters and lava fields where the continents are literally drifting apart. Next, we’ll visit hot springs and the sulfatares area at Krisuvik and then Lake Kleifarvatn before returning to Reykjavik. The moonlike surroundings of the lake never fail to leave a strong impression on our visitors!
