What people are saying about Reykjanes Peninsula

This was an easy way to get from the city to the blue Lagoon. And then when we left, we took the bus to the airport. You can store your suitcases for about six dollars. There is a facility right outside of the blue lagoon. It was very easy to use this service. The only warning I would give people is that the bus to the airport only leaves a few times a day. Because of that, we did not get to spend as much time at the lagoon as we want it. So check the times and then buy your tickets to the blue Lagoon accordingly.

Brilliant Tour. Totally recommended. It was a large coach tour, with USB chargers and WiFi! Interesting facts while driving and then we were left to wander around ourselves when we raised at each location, which I really liked. The volcano hike was difficult with the wind, and I can confirm you definitely want to being the going shoes as there's a lot of loose dirt and rocks.

Travel is convenient. Just be careful about the times when the bus leaves from Blue Lagoon. We were told every hour but most of afternoon it is every 2 hours. But that could be just misunderstanding, otherwise all good.

Impressive to stand on a volcano and see the cooled lava. (From the pictures I would have expected an active volcano though.) The other destinations were also very worthwhile.

Lava field experience was exceptional, but one would want to see the eruption site as well and that was very far.
