The Reykjanes peninsula is a geothermal wonder and a place where lighthouses outnumber villages. It is home to the Keflavík International Airport, amazing Blue Lagoon and nowhere on earth is the junction between European and American tectonic plates as clearly visible as on Reykjanes. It truly is a destination in its own right.

The Mid-Atlantic ridge comes ashore on the Reykjanes peninsula. The peninsula, with its diversity of volcanic and geothermal activity, is a Geopark and is the only place in the world where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge is visible above sea level. It is home to many important geological formations, some of which are utterly unique, including numerous types of volcanoes in at least four separate volcanic zones, with hundreds of open fissures and faults.
Because of dangerous sailing conditions around the Reykjanes peninsula and the rich fishing traditions, thirteen lighthouses have been built around the peninsula, each and every one with their own charm. The villages in Reykjanes peninsula are vibrant and are well worth exploring.
