Start with a pleasant drive through Hafnarfjordur town, picturesquely located on an ancient lava flow. Continue along the enchanting Kleifarvatn Lake, one of the deepest lakes in Iceland, where you make a short photo stop. Then head to the geothermal fields of Krysuvik. In Krysuvik you'll witness the powerful jets of steam escaping from deep below the earth’s crust and purple and yellow pools of boiling mud of the solfataras.
Drive across the impressive volcanic plateau of Reykjanes, crossing the bustling fishing village of Grindavik. The Blue Lagoon is close by, crowned by clouds of vapor and surrounded by lava and owing its existence to a nearby geothermal power plant. The water of the lagoon is warm, mineral rich and reputed for its healing properties. This natural and very popular health spa is now a major attraction of the region. After viewing the Blue Lagoon, drive over the lava covered Reykjanes Peninsula to the outskirts of the little town Njardvik.
Here, you’ll pass the old turf farmhouse of Stekkjarkot - a traditional Icelandic cottage that gives you a glimpse into life in the early 20th century. You’ll visit the nearby Viking World Museum where you´ll find the “Icelander”, a seaworthy replica of a Viking vessel, which would have carried a crew of 70. Drive back through the Reykjanes lava fields, before arriving at the pier.
