The lunar-like landscape is where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin practiced their moonwalk. You will see why they chose this place when you visit it.
The trip starts in the town of Hafnarfjörður. There you can see how Icelanders still dry fish in the lava field, just outside the capital area. The landscape is barren and deserted with many volcanoes and endless lava. We are in fact driving right where the tectonic plates meet, the Eurasian plate and the North-American plate, which is the reason why the Reykjanes Peninsula is so volcanic.
We make our way along the rough tracks to Lake Kleifarvatn where we explore a large hot spring area (Seltún) and look at the Atlantic ocean from the sea cliffs at Krýsuvík. We also visit a famous lighthouse (Reykjanesviti) with a view over the small volcanic Island of Eldey. Later in the afternoon we relax in the Blue Lagoon** before heading back to Reykjavik or to your flight, since the international airport is only 20 minutes drive from the Blue Lagoon.
