What people are saying about Reykjanes Peninsula

All in all a very interesting trip. You have to know that the program has changed a bit since the volcano went out. After a short stay in the Geopark, which feels like another world, we went to the lava field, which unfortunately is no longer glowing, but is still steaming. It was up to everyone to dare the ascent (which is difficult) to take a look at the extinct crater or to linger at the lava field. Altogether enough was planned for both. Then we went to a fishing village for a lunch break. A packed lunch is therefore not necessary. What was not mentioned in the excursion description was a visit to the bridge between the continents, a hot spring and the coast. Tip: it is also possible to combine this excursion with a visit to the blue lagoon.

I was alone traveller and while the volcanos weren’t active it was truly amazing. Got to see the lava field which was spectacular. The hike up is quite the challenge but keep going and the view is spectacular. Loved the hot springs and learning the history. I especially enjoyed the bridge between two continents and being on the North American continent was an amazing experience. Thank you so much to Thor our guide that gave us all the information necessary and taught us some Icelandic culture and words which was amazing and obviously the adorable coach driver for driving us to see the sights particularly enjoyed watching the sunset at the ocean to end the trip and seeing the tides. Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience.

Great tour. Would recommend even I think we could do it on our own as we had car. But we really enjoyed. The hike could be longer as it was only 2 hours all together not 4 as advertised. The driver and tour guide were friendly and even we stuck in the snow they had to put big effort to get the bus back on the road. They keep us safe and comfortable. Well done. Over all great communication and organisation.

We had a fantastic day! The tour guide was really friendly and had loads of interesting facts/ stories about iceland and the places we were visiting. Everything was on time and it was a perfect trip!

Highly informative. Learned a lot from the guide. The volcano and hot springs were great!
