Reykjanes Peninsula

Trip Planner Europe  /  Iceland  /  Reykjanes Peninsula
Featuring both bizarre and beautiful landscapes, the Southern Peninsula epitomizes the quirks, charm, and otherworldliness of rural Iceland. The lava fields that cover much of peninsula are some of the youngest in country and are largely responsible for the area's fantastic array of scenery. The peninsula's biggest city, Keflavik, retains a distinctly small-town feel and boasts a number of picturesque walking trails. Most visitors and locals spend their time by the Atlantic Ocean, enjoying the area's striking beaches and cliffs. After a long day exploring, you can relax in one of the area's famed traditional spas. Plan a trip to Iceland easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
