The Reykjanes Peninsula, a volcanically active area with frequent earthquakes, has a number of scenic wonders including the popular Blue Lagoon spa, endless lava fields, multiple geothermal areas and volcanoes (i. e., the recent Fagradalsfjall, see Gallery), and stunning basalt cliffs and coastlines

Two of the main geothermal areas are Krysuvik (with its dramatic Seltún field of volcanic fumeroles, multi-colored mud pools, and numerous boiling hot springs) and Gunnuhver (with its bubbling mud pools, and constantly venting steam).

Valanukamol, the rugged coastal area with its basalt cliffs and sea stacks, has breath-taking sneaker waves which have battered and shaped the coastline and its sandless beach.
