​REYKJANES GOLD (3 tours in 1)

​The Reykjanes Peninsula really has it all. Geothermal landscapes, beautiful lakes and mountains, charming fishing towns, cosy cafés, The Blue Lagoon, Tectonic Plates and the Bridge Between Continents, local history and lovely people!  This is a full day tour exploring all the highlights of the Reykjanes Peninsula. We start with the 45 minute drive to Sandgerði town where we get a chance to stretch our legs a little bit and visit the Sandgerði Nature Centre (when open). Our next stop is at Hvalsneskirkja church where we’ll tell you a little bit about Hallgrímur Pétursson, one of Iceland’s most famous poets. Next up is the Bridge Between Continents where you will see where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge ‘tears’ the country apart at a rate of 2-3 inches per year. A footbridge has been erected over the rift and when on the middle of that bridge you can say you have one foot in Europe and the other one in America. Next up is a visit to Gunnuhver geothermal area from where you can see one of Iceland’s most beautiful lighthouses, Reykjanesviti. After a short drive around the Grindavík Fishing Village we  we stop at the local Bryggja (Pier Café) for a light lunch and a coffee to refuel before ATV adventure. You'll drive up and down a mountain, around Hópsnes peninsula with its random shipwreck, the beautiful coastlines and the charming Hópsnesviti Lighthouse.

Group Dinner at Rub23 Restaurant
Rub23 is mainly a seafood restaurant with variations of fish species and large variety of sushi and some meat courses.
What makes the restaurant unique both in Iceland and internationally is the varied way in which the menu is put together, including ready-made spice mixtures that customers can choose from, the so-called RUB. RUB has become a well known term for spice mixtures that are either put onto or rubbed into food, as the name indicates. Thus the customer can first choose a particular ingredient, for example a special type of fish and then choose from a list of spice mixtures those he wishes to try.

​Group dinner at The Fish Company
The Fish Company menu is an adventurous journey around the world. This sense of adventure is reflected in the surroundings and essence of  the venue.  The Zimsen building dates back to 1884 and originally stood a few hundred meters east of it´s current location. It was extended in 1889, but in 2006  it was uprooted and lovingly renovated before being replanted at its current location in 2008. During the groundwork stages of the reconstruction, excavation unearthed remnants of the old harbour, which has now been incorporated into “The Tides”, a  work of art by Hjörleifur Stefánsson, developed in collaboration with Minjavernd Heritage Trust. This gives the area a unique athmosphere further emphasized as the tides come in and go out in the artwork as they do in the current harbour.

Notice: You will have to confirm 4 days in advance if you wish to join us for the group dinner. Everyone picks whatever they like on the menu / á la carte.
