Go see the Reykjanes Peninsula, an aspiring Geopark. The diversity of volcanic and geothermal activity is mesmerizing and is the only place in the world where the Mid-Atlandic Ridge is visible aboce sea level.

What to expect?

Reykjanes Peninsula is an aspiring Geopark applying for membership in the European Geopark network. The peninsula, with its diversity of volcanic and geothermal activity, is well suited to become a Geopark and is the only place in the world where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge is visible above sea level.

The Reykjanes peninsula is located between two continents, the North American plate and the Eurasian plate. It is a unique site where you can find different elements that exist because of the drift zone; geothermal energy, lava fields and other natural phenomenon.

The area is close to Reykjanes lighthouse and is collectively named Gunnuhver after a female ghost that was laid there. She had caused great disturbance until a priest set a trap for her and she fell into the spring. This occurred about 400 years ago. Krísuvík is a popular recreational destination with many interesting hiking paths. Columns of steam rise skywards, bubbling mud pools play their rhythmical symphony, and the banks around the hot springs are colored green, yellow and red. You don´t need to go far out of the city to experience Iceland at its fines.
