The Reykjanes Peninsula runs along the Mid-Atlantic Rift where the Eurasian and the North-American tectonic plates are drifting aparrt, and a bridge between the two continents where you can walk from Amerika over to Europe by crossing that bridge. Due to this geological setting the whole peninsula is extremely volcanally active covered with lava fields, craters and volcanos, and geothermal hotsprings, and earthquakes are very common here. In Krýsuvík we have Kleifarvatn, one of biggest lake in Iceland, and in 2001 we had big earthquakes in this area and the water level of this lake dropped down about 2,5 metres.
We have Gunnuhver one of the biggest hotspring in Iceland and very active geothermal area, named after Gunnu, an angry female ghost whose spirit was trapped in this hotspring, and Seltún, area of boiling mudpools and steam vents. The highlights of Reykjanes Peninsula is ofcourse the World-Famous Spa Blue Lagoon, geothermal bathing spa, getting huge attraction in Iceland.
