Our guide to Wonders of Reykjanes Geopark & Blue Lagoon
The Reykjanes Geopark is located on a peninsula divided between two continents. This unique placement of the Reykjanes Peninsula on the drift zone between the North American and the Eurasian continental plates makes it a true Volcanic Wonder.
On the drive along the Reykjanes peninsula, you are constantly in the presence of the roaring Atlantic Ocean, endless lava fields, and volcanic craters. An alien landscape, decorated by windblown palagonite and petrified troll formations.
Your adventure starts by the youngest volcano in Iceland, Fagradalsfjall Volcano, and the surrounding lava fields. The hike up to the view point takes about 40 minutes, where you will be able to explore the devastating yet beautiful aftermath of this recent volcanic eruption.
From 2021 there have been three eruptions on the peninsula, the most recent one ended on 6th of August 2023.
After the volcano hike, you stop by the bridge between continents, where you can walk between the continental plates that divide the peninsula. This stop underlines this unique placement directly on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
Before being dropped off at the Blue Lagoon, you will stop by the largest mud pool in Iceland, Gunnuhver. You can feel the ground shake from the enormous power released from the boiling water and steam released.
The bus from Blue Lagoon to Reykjavik is at 20.15.
