Introduction to Iceland

Reykjanes Excursion

In this excursion, we will head to the Reykjanes peninsula, where the mid Atlantic ridge rises from the ocean, to give you a better view of the area most foreigners describe as "moon landscape". More than half of the penisula is covered with lava flows, some of which are only a few hundred years old. You will see lava cones and craters of different size and shapes.
