Reykjanes is where the international airport is located and the area is packed with some of Iceland's most popular tourist attractions. These factors make it especially convenient to combine tours of all sorts and even matching them to your flight schedule to make the most of your time in Iceland.
The landscape, often compared to the Moon, is something you won't see anywhere else. Full of volcanic and geothermal activity, vast lava fields and black sand beaches that will make you feel like you've landed on another planet.
Reykjanes offers several attractions to suit a wide range of interests; an excellent golf course, VikingWorld viking ship museum, quad biking, lava caving, the famous Blue Lagoon, kayaking and some nice restaurants! All this minutes away from Keflavik International Airport.
Some of the geothermal areas in Reykjanes are barely even know about by the Icelandic locals, like the amazing Gunnuhver area where you will find water and mud boiling in the ground in all sorts of different colours! Another little known, great place to visit is the Krýsuvík area, more hot springs and colourful wonders - the side product of the island's volcanic activity.
All the activities combined with the short distance from Reykjavík and the international airport makes the Reykjanes peninsula a very convenient adventure destination.
