Leaving Reykjavík, your motor coach heads towards the volcanic peninsula of Reykjanes, where you will find several dormant volcanoes and extensive lava fields. You’ll drive through the fishing town of Hafnarfjördur on your way to beautiful Kleifarvatn Lake. After a brief stop here, you’ll continue to the southern shore of the peninsula to see the amazing Krísuvík—a moonscape of bubbling sulfuric mud pools and steam vents whose geothermal activity originates deep in the earth. Drive through the lively little fishing village of Grindavík, with its many fishing boats and then drive to the man-made Blue Lagoon for a short photo stop and a refreshment. Owing its existence to a nearby geothermal power plant, the water of this lagoon is reputed to have healing properties. Before you return to Reykjavík, you will visit the Viking World Museum, home to the amazing full-scale replica of the Gokstad Viking long ship that was discovered in Norway in 1882. A relaxing drive through the mossy lava fields leads back to Reykjavík, where your coach will drop you off at the pier.
There is no bathing at the Blue Lagoon on this tour. Guests wishing to bathe must opt for the excursion called "Swimming in the Blue Lagoon."
