Pick up your rental car at Keflavik airport. If your flight arrives early in the day we recommend you begin your Iceland experience by exploring the Reykjanes peninsula, where you’ll find the GeoPark (Gardur, Grindavik, Reykjanesbaer, Sandgerdi and Vogar), Reykjanes continental bridge, Kleifarvatn and hot spring Gunnuhver.
Another option is to go bird watching at the tip of Reykjanes, take a walk on the beach at Selartangar, go visit the Viking museum Vikingaheimar, or the child friendly troll in Skessuhellir cave in Reykjanesbaer. We also recommend taking a dip in the swimming pool in Reykjanesbaer and tasting the delicious ice-cream at Bitinn.
