Visit Reykjanes is the destination marketing and management organization for the Reykjanes peninsula and Reykjanes UNESCO Global Geopark. Only a stone’s throw from Keflavík International Airport and only 30 minutes from the vibrant capital, Reykjavík.

The Reykjanes peninsula is a natural powerhouse. Not only because of the recent volcanic activity but as the area is permanently marked by the Mid-Atlantic ridge and there are only a few places around the world – where you can see such a rift up close. See where the country is being ripped apart, inch by inch. See how the lava fields, overgrown with moss, bear witness to volcanic eruptions that happened millennia ago and the ongoing eruption in Fagradalsfjall. This rugged beauty is home to a community that puts sustainability and innovation at its core.

The area offers nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, and geology connoisseurs and laymen alike a rare opportunity for discovery. And the lunar landscapes, friendly communities, and the short distance from Iceland’s capital Reykjavík mean that curiosity can be quenched with ease.

Feel how the nutritious seawater at the Blue Lagoon can soften and soothe your skin. And climb hike, or bike in an area marked by survival and volatility. Take a breath and witness just how amazing our region is. We will assist you in finding the right fit for you and your customers regarding services and experience. Our partners always aim to provide the best possible experience that the area and its people have to offer.
