Reykjavik Peninsula with a Stop at the Blue Lagoon We visit the Reykjanes peninsula where you can see the mid Atlantic ridge rise from the ocean and more than half of the peninsula is covered with lava fields, some of which are only a few hundred years old. This is a magnificent area with rich bird life in the summer.
First we head towards the community of Sandgerdi, one of the country's major fishing points. The tour continues along the coast line through Midnesheidi moor which rises up from the lowland. We will stop at the stone built church of Hvalneskirkja from the year 1887.
The journey proceeds through lava fields onwards to Sandvik where two of the earth's tectonic plate split. At Sandvik you will get the opportunity to walk over a symbolic footbridge which crosses a fissure which provides clear evidence of the rift between the European and the North American tectonic plates.
Continue to the old lighthouse on the westernmost tip of the peninsula. We will also stop at Gunnuhver, the country's largest mud pool. Pass through the fishing village Grindavik on the way to the Blue Lagoon.
There you have three different options; a visit to the Blue Lagoon, transfer to Keflavik Airport or return back to Reykjavik according to the transfer schedule below.
The lagoon holds 6 million liters of geothermal seawater which is renewed every 40 hours. It is rich in minerals, silica and algae.
The water's temperature is 37-39°C/98-102°F. The deepest part of the lagoon is around 1,60m/5,2ft, but most areas are far more shallow. Please note that the lagoon floor, although smooth, is naturally uneven.
The lagoon is designed for relaxed bathing. So, while you can swim gently around the lagoon, its warm, cloudy water is not suitable for vigorous exercise. Diving is not allowed anywhere.
The Blue Lagoon offers a wide selection of refreshments, from gourmet meals at the restaurant to ready-to-go bites at the café - there is something for everyone.
The Reykjanes Peninsula portion of the tour is 2,5-3 hours in duration, with flexible departures from the Blue Lagoon available.
Bathing fee and visitors fee in the Blue Lagoon is not included in the price and it has an age limit of 2 years for children.
Please note that it is very important that you book your Blue Lagoon entrance and timing in advance as it can be sold out during peak hours. The larger and improved facility is opened now.
