The Reykjanes Peninsula tour is a great option to get out and explore close to the City. We can be out shooting within 30 minutes. It's often overlooked by photographers but has a lot of photographic potential.
At Reykjanes we have many Lava fields, and numerous Geothermal areas such as Krísuvík and Gunnuhver. By lake Kleifarvatn we find wind carved sandstone formations that are great foreground material.
At the tip of the Peninsula - which is called Reykjanestá - is Valahnúkur cliff and Sea Stacks that are great to shoot in heavy surf. It's a nice late afternoon or evening spot.
The Reykjanes Peninsula is also home to The Blue Lagoon. If you like I can plan the tour to finish there, where you can enjoy a nice warm soak followed by a good meal at the Lava or Moss Restaurants. The Blue Lagoon is quite popular so you need to pre-book tickets in advance.
Close by the bathing lagoon you can photograph the blue water surrounded by moss covered lava, a quite unique scene.
This Day Tour is also a good way to spend your last day in Iceland. Flights to the US usually leave in the afternoon so if you dont want to waste the last day we can start early and then finish the tour with a drop-off at Keflavík airport.
Mount Keilir in winter. The low angle of the sun during the winter brings out fine texture in the snow and lava.
The Reykjanes Peninsula Tour costs US$ 800 and the duration is from 6-8 hours depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
The price includes pick-up and drop-off where you stay, guiding and tutition, transport in my Land Rover Defender and fuel costs. Meals/drinks are not included.
My Land Rover seats up to four passengers but three will be more comfortable.
The Sea Stacks at Reykjanestá look their best
when the surf is pounding on them.
