Krísuvík geothermal area

Krísuvík, also known as Krysuvik is situated on the Reykjanes peninsula. Krysuvik consists of several geothermal fields, such as Seltún. Here you can find mud pots and hot springs that have formed throughout the years with the soil colored in bright yellow, red and green hues.  

Seltún hot spring

Seltún is a hot spot in the geothermal area Krysuvik. A boardwalk can be found leading through the area where you can experience boiling mud pots and fumaroles creating other worldly visuals that's certainly a sight to behold! 

The Viking Museum Víkingaheimar

Visit the Viking museum, Víkingaheimar, home to a magnificent replica of a Viking ship called the Gokstad ship, which was excavated in near perfect condition from an ancient burial mound in Norway in 1882. 

The Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon geothermal spa is one of the most popular attractions in Iceland. While touring the Reykjanes Peninsula we drive past the renowned Blue Lagoon and witness the bright blue waters as they can be seen in the lava fields surrounding the lagoon. The lagoon is fed by the water output from Svartsengi, a nearby geothermal power plant. The water is fed into the lagoon for recreational and medicinal bathing.

Gunnuhver hot spring

Gunnuhver is a hot spring on the Reykjanes peninsula located close to the Reykjanes lighthouse. Gunnuhver stands in the heart of the Reykjanes UNESCO Global Geopark where the North Atlantic ridge rises from the ocean. A ramp is located close to Gunnuhver where you can walk onto the ramp and look down at the spring and hear the roaring noise, see the boiling water and feel the hot steam that stems from the ground.

The Bridge Between Continents

The bridge between Europe and north America can be located on the Reykjanes peninsula. Just as the North-American and Eurasian tectonic plates can be found pulling apart at Thingvellir national park, they also can be found on the Reykjanes Peninsula and so the bridge was built as a symbol for the connection between Europe and North-America.
