When visiting Iceland, nature is one of the main attractions and our Blue Diamond Circle tour offers beautiful breathtaking landscape all day long.
Heading to the geothermal field of Krýsuvík with steaming vents, fumaroles, mud pots, clay and solfatares.
Our next stop is in the friendly and picturesque fishing village Grindavík where a visit to the Salt Fish museum gives a unique view into the core of Icelandic culture and heritage.
The Reykjanes power plant is located in a lava field and it´s natural surroundings make it an extraordinary place to visit. The exhibition shows how man utilizes different energy sources. The exhibition´s most impressive showpiece is a geothermal turbine generating 50 MW of “green electrical power“.
We head onwards and „The Rift“ provides a unique chance to cross the Eurasian and American continents in just minutes before reaching the tip of the peninsula.
Passing through the photogenic villages Hafnir, Sandgerði and Garður before reaching Vikingworld Iceland. Vikingaheimar (Vikingworld Iceland) is the home of the Viking ship Íslendingur (Icelander).
Built in 1996, Icelander is an exact replica of the famous Gokstad ship, a remarkable archaeological find of an almost completely intact Viking ship, excavated in Norway in 1882. Vikingaheimar is also a home to the exhibition The North Atlantic Viking Saga, originally shown at the Smithsonian Institution during the summer of 2000.
Don´t miss out the magical Reykjanes ... geothermal fields, picturesque coastal villages, Garðskagi lighthouse, abundant birdlife (all around the shoreline) and wave battered bluffs will leave everlasting memories.
