Eldvörp Crater is on the Reykjanes peninsula, near the international airport of Keflavik. At first sight you could mistake the landscape of Reykjanes peninsula for the moon. At closer look, you would however notice the contrast of beautiful, thick, moss-smothered lava fields. Wonder at the mystic inspiration nature gives, regardless of the season.
Beserkjahraun is a large lava field thousands of years old on the western side of the Snaefellsnes peninsula. The Snaefellsnes National Park tour that Golden Tours offers takes you to this very special natural landscape sculpted by the lava fields, mountain ridges and the largest glacier on the west coast of Iceland. The scenery is unique and hearkens back to an older time, when small farms in lavish grassy fields enclosed by lava fields were plentiful.
Gunnuhver is a large hot spring gushing out from deep inside the earth. The hot spring is named after the legendary Guðrún Önundardóttir, a woman of magic and witchcraft in the Icelandic Sagas. All of the area around Gunnuhver is a thermal areas and magnificently displays all the beautiful colors of the natural clay and silicone. The thermal area is close to the Keflavik airport and part of the Reykjanes Tour.
Hraunfossar is “lava falls” in Icelandic--the clear and countless waterfalls that pour out from lava layers into the glacial river Hvita in Borgarfjordur. The clean, white spray of these waterfalls will inspire you as they flow out from the gleaming lava rock. In wintertime, you’ll see how the multiple waterfalls break out from their imprisoning, icy walls.
Inland to the south is the hot spring Geysir. In the Haukadalur area there are many beautiful hot springs, some spouting large columns of hot water, steam and vapors high into the air. The water is very hot as it comes from very hot thermal areas deep from under the earth. The magnificent and majestic golden waterfall Gullfoss is nearby. Experience nature’s magnificent power close-up and personal with Gullfoss and Geysir.
