The Reykjanes Geopark is located on a peninsula divided between two continents. This unique placement of the Reykjanes Peninsula on the drift zone between the North American and the Eurasian continental plates makes it a true Volcanic Wonder.

The dormant Þríhnúkagígur volcano is one natural phenomenon. By setting up the necessary gear and equipment, we’ve created a tour that opens the door to a new world.
