Reykjanes Peninsula and Reykjavik

Reykjanes Peninsula and Reykjavik

Reykjanes Peninsula is a UNESCO Global Geopark and part of the European and Global Geopark network. The peninsula, with its diversity of volcanic and geothermal activity, is well suited to be a Geopark as it is the only place in the world where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge is visible above sea level.

The volcanoes on the Reykjanes Peninsula are divided into two main systems:

The Reykjanes system, which includes the volcanoes Fagradalsfjall, Brennisteinsfjall, Krysuvik and Geldingadalir.
The Hengill system, which includes the volcanoes Hekla, Katla and Tindfjallajökull

The Reykjanes system is the most active volcanic system in Iceland. There have been seven eruptions there over the last 100 years, three of them in the last two years.
