Reykjanes UNESCO Global Geopark Tour: Unearth Iceland’s Volcanic Heartbeat
Venture into the most volcanically spirited realm of Iceland—the Reykjanes UNESCO Global Geopark. Poised uniquely at the confluence of two continents, this geopark allows you to step between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, making it a genuine Volcanic Marvel.
As we traverse the Reykjanes peninsula, let the rhythmic lull of the Atlantic accompany you, punctuated by the vistas of expansive lava fields and the silhouettes of volcanic craters. Experience a world so raw and ethereal; it feels otherworldly, complete with the mystique of wind-shaped palagonite and tales of petrified trolls.
Fagradalsfjall Volcano Hike: Our escapade ignites at Iceland’s freshest volcano, Fagradalsfjall. Traverse the lava tapestries birthed by its fury. A modest 40-minute hike elevates you to a vantage, revealing the beautiful chaos of recent eruptions. Remarkably, since 2021, the peninsula has witnessed three volcanic spectacles, with the latest curtain falling on 6th August 2023.
Bridge Between Continents: An emblem of the Reykjanes’ rare geographic charisma! Stroll between the very continental plates that sculpt this peninsula. Feel the thrill of straddling the Mid-Atlantic Ridge—a testament to Earth’s ever-evolving dance.
Gunnuhver’s Mighty Mud Pool: Sense the land's pulse at Iceland’s grandest mud pool, Gunnuhver. Let its bubbling fervor and roaring steam remind you of the immense geothermal vigor beneath your feet.
Seltún’s Colorful Geothermal Wonderland: We cap our adventure by unveiling one of Iceland's geothermal crowns—the boiling mud pools of Seltún. Surrounded by a kaleidoscope of steaming terrain, it’s a sight that defies reality. Please note, our Seltún leg is seasonal, offering its wonders when nature permits (typically closed in winter).
Join us for a day of untamed adventure, and unearth the very heartbeat of Iceland's volcanic soul! 🌍🔥🌊
