This was a spontaeneous drive since my friend and I were at the hot spring - and it was totally worth it. The peninsula was amazing and I think it was the best views I've had in Iceland. There was a bit of a trek to walk all the way up - so I'd be sure you've comfy shoes on... 更多
We traveled there from the Hot Spring and found this to be the best part. The island Eldey where the birds decided to enjoy themselves, the Lighthouse and of course where the Lava Rock splits during shifts in the earth or earthquakes, You can see very clearly where the rocks split. This is an awesome area to see.
We explore the area and reached the cliffs at the end of the road past the lighthouse. Lots of seabirds nesting but the weather was atrocious so had to watch from the car. Looked to be lots to photograph and will visit again next time I head to Iceland.
I enjoyed walking up to the lighthouse. It’s a steep hill to walk up, but there are some nice views of the geothermal pools from the top. We couldn’t go up the lighthouse as it was shut. I’m not even sure if its open to the public. There are also nice views looking from the cliff to the lighthouse.
We drove up to the lighthouse after visiting the bridges of the continents. I wasn't sure about it but so glad we did. The lighthouse was not the attraction but the cliffs by it were spectacular. We hiked up and were greeted by gorgeous skies and a dramatic ocean view. The cliffs were high up and we say hundreds of... 更多
We rented a car at Keflavik airport and proceeded to drive to our destination, but because we were in no hurry, we took a longer and scenic route and it was worth it. There are plains of lava now covered with moss, mountains, rivers, waterfalls and in the national park, hot water springs. One of the most stunningly beautiful places... 更多
This was our first stop after landing at Keflavik (to be precise: Reykjanesta). We had some time to kill before heading to the Blue Lagoon, and since the peninsula was so close to the Lagoon and to the airport, we decided to go there and have our first sigh of Iceland. And let me just say: we were blown away!... 更多
The Reykjanes Peninsula is a mixture of lanscapes that seemed from another planet, hot springs and a beautiful coastline. It's a small peninsula so it can be visited in a few hours, not including the visit at the Blue Lagoon.
The Blue Lagoon is the most famous site here but it's worth driving around this area. The distances are small and the sights are spectacular. Gunnuhver hot springs, the light house and the cliffs on the southwestern tip of the peninsula are well worth the detour.
Do this on your way to the airport or after you land as there is no convenient way to do it otherwise. Lots of great places and an ever changing landscape.
