Reykjanes Peninsula

4.2
Thermal Spas · Hot Springs · Bridges
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.

Where to stay in Reykjanes Peninsula

The majority of accommodations in the Southern Peninsula revolves around its administrative center, Keflavik. Homely hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses populate its center while large chain hotels sit in the outskirts, offering proximity to the international airport. If you are interested in experiencing the peninsula's world renowned landscapes, consider renting a holiday cottage in one of the rural regions. Most of these come equipped with modern amenities, including full kitchens, bringing the feeling of a home away from home. As with much of Iceland, accommodations can be pricey; one of the best ways to save a few krona is to pitch a tent at a nearby campsite.
