Combine a taste of Iceland with interesting hot springs and a scenic ocean route, and you'll have a memorable day.
Depart via the Blue Mountains to Eyrarbakki fishing village on the south coast. Many of the old houses here have been renovated, forming a lovely hub of traditional homes. The oldest house, Húsid, was built in 1756.
There is nothing more Icelandic than a seafood restaurant in a typical fishing village, so you will continue to the small fishing village of Stokkseyri for a lunch feast. Icelandic lobster (langoustine), fresh from the ocean, is served sizzling in the pan, along with a variety of side dishes.
Drive along the coast to Lake Kleifarvatn, set in fascinatingly stark, moon-like surroundings. Near the lake's southern end lies the Krysuvík Geothermal Area, with powerful jets of steam escaping from beneath the earth's crust and sulfurous gases rising from numerous vents.
Enjoy a panoramic drive through Reykjavík's city center before reaching the pier.
All walking is optional, and most sights can be viewed through the motorcoach windows. There are some inclined surfaces to negotiate and rough grass/mud/gravel paths, and uneven steps.
