Krisuvik and The Blue Lagoon 2021

A tour that offers great views of this land: try south, with its glaciers, then Reykjanes, Reykjavík to Snæfellsnes. We will begin our adventure in Vellir, following one of the country’s main waterways, the Ölfusá River. Then again we will discover the mythical church of Strandarkirkja, the starting point to continue on the beach to Krýsuvík, where we will admire the beautiful contrasts between the sand and the black landscape of ancient lava. And finally we will visit the beautiful Blue Lagoon, where we can relax in the warm thermal waters that emerge spontaneously.
