Northern lights

Northern lights

The Reykjanes peninsula is a good area and a popular one when it comes to hunting for northern lights. The peninsula is easily accessed and places that are not influenced by lights are not far away.

The Reykjanes Peninsula

Towns & Villages

Visitors to Iceland who arrive via Keflavik International Airport on the Reykjanes Peninsula may be somewhat surprised by the landscape that greets their eyes as they touch down in Iceland for the very first time. A seemingly endless, green-grey moss-topped lava field blankets the peninsula for as far as the eye can see, and it is this strange and rather other-worldly sight that is your first glimpse of the land of fire and ice.
