Tourism works in mysterious ways. Why should Krysuvik remain relatively unknown compared to the other geothermal sites of the island, when it is located close to Hafnarfjördur, and therefore to Reykjavik, and presents the same characteristics? In fact, in Krysuvik you can also admire boiling mud springs, solfataras, fumaroles, gradients of colours, etc.
I have wandered over Reykjanes peninsula several times, as alone as if I were in some remote part of the island, with these geothermal phenomena as the only decor. So why miss out on a pleasure that is situated so near to the capital?
Krysuvik is also located not far from Lake Graenavatn, which offers other opportunities for walks in the surrounding area.
And finally, what could be better than to finish the day with a dip at the Blue Lagoon, which is also located nearby?
