Blue Lagoon and Reykjanes Moon Like Landscapes
Only a short drive from Reykjavík, one finds herself in a vast wilderness, where lava formations remain untouched and magical, holes with bubbling mud and superheated water with colors resembling colourful paintings. This tour will take you around Reykjanes Peninsula GEOPARK to look at geology, volcanology, geothermal formations, mud polls and steaming hot spring, and you will learn about the geological history of Iceland. The tour ends in the relaxing atmosphere in the Blue Lagoon.
9:00 AM – REYKJAVÍK
Pick up at your accommodation around 9.00 AM, or meet us at bus stop number 8, next to Hallgrímskirkja church. Wait for the Travelling Iceland vehicle.
We will drive past the Lake Kleifarvatn, which is a Lake formed solely by plate tectonics and rifting of the earth crust, the Eurasian and North American plates away from each other.
SELTÚN, GEOTHERMAL AREA
Seltún is a beautifully coloured geothermal area. The geothermal activity brings to the surface bubbling mud pools and steaming ground and colourful solfataras. The beautiful colours are due to sulphur and white and yellowish brown sulphates are deposited.
GUNNUHVER HOT SPRING
One of the hottest places in Iceland is Gunnuhver. The temperature below the surface amount to about 300° C in this hot spring. Gunnuhver is named after a female ghost, named Gunna, that was laid there.
BRIDGE BETWEEN TWO CONTINENTS
The Bridge Between Continents is a small footbridge over a major fissure, which is formed by tectonics and rifting of the two continental plates, Eurasian and North American plates, from each other.
REYKJANES LIGHTHOUSE AND CLIFFS
After passing the Reykjanesviti lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse in Iceland, we drive towards the sea where we enjoy a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean, high cliffs and black rock formations.
Blue Lagoon is one of the best natural spas in the world. The history of the Blue Lagoon can be traced back to 1976 when a reservoir was formed in Svartsengi from the work of the Geothermal Power Plant Svartsengi. People discovered that the soil had a positive effect on the skin, especially for those suffering from psoriasis skin disease. Since then the Blue Lagoon has become one of the world’s most amazing baths and spas in the world.
