Reykjanes Peninsula BC06

Join us for a tour of the „steamy peninsula“   Reykjanes, located on the southwestern tip of Iceland. This lunar landscape with craters and hot springs will leave a strong impression!

We pick up our cyclists at a Reykjavik hotel and drive to the famous Blue Lagoon. Our journey begins by cycling from the lagoon through gently rolling terrains with a magnificent, mountainous panorama view. We cylce to Eldvörp, a row of craters northwest of the village Grindavik. These stunning craters were formed in the Reykjanes Fires 1210-1240 AD in the Svartsengi volcanic system. This area was used by the Apollo flight crew to practice moon walking. This beautiful landscape with craters and lava is one of a kind!  Steam can be seen flowing from one crater, the temperature inside measuring around 80° C. We continue cycling, biking to the fishing village Grindavik. We cycle to Hópsnes, a beautiful cape with lighthouses, shipwreks and pounding waves. This  coastline is home to vast birdlife. Our tour ends with a swim in the Blue Lagoon, a great way to end a wonderful day of cycling! This famous lagoon is made of warm geothermal seawater with natural active ingredients; mineral salts, silica and blue green algae. The lagoon has been voted the best medical spa worldwide and has for years been awarded the Blue Flag environmental recognition granted to natural beaches. After unwinding in the lagoon we drive our cyclists back to Reykjavik- relaxed and enriched with the breathtaking raw nature Iceland has to offer!
