The Reykjanes Peninsula, which is volcanically active and where earthquakes are common, has a number of scenic gems including the famous Blue Lagoon, endless lava fields, multiple volcanoes (including the recently erupting Fagradalsfjall (see Gallery), and stunning lava coastlines.

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

The Reykjanes Peninsula's rugged coastal area of Valahnukamol, with its lava cliffs and sea stacks, has breath-taking breaker waves which have battered and shaped the coastline.
