The Reykjanes Geopark is located on a peninsula divided between two continents - a true Volcanic Wonder!

Explore one of the most iconic features of the Icelandic volcanic landscape, the boiling mud pools of Seltún, and the steaming colorful surrounding landscape, hear the roaring Atlantic Ocean, see endless lava fields, volcanic craters, and what many call an alien landscape, decorated by windblown palagonite and petrified troll formations.

You'll visit the youngest volcano in Iceland, Fagradalsfjall Volcano, and the surrounding lava fields. The hike up to the craters takes about 40 minutes, where you will be able to explore the devastating yet beautiful aftermath of this recent volcanic eruption. After the volcano hike, you'll stop by the bridge between continents, where you can walk between the continental plates that divide the peninsula.

Before dropping you off at the Blue Lagoon, a stop by the largest mud pool in Iceland, Gunnuhver is in order. You can feel the ground shake from the enormous power released from the boiling water and steam released.
