Keflavik Harbour (c) CE

Keflavik

The Keflavik Harbour is a gateway into Reykjanes UNESCO Global Geopark. It is a prime-positioned port in the town centre offering expedition ships the perfect scouting base from which to explore the Reykjanes peninsula and some of Iceland’s natural and cultural highlights.
Located next to Iceland's main international airport, Keflavik offers great opportunities for combining turnarounds with a visit to the geological wonders of the Reykjanes Geopark.
The Reykjanes peninsula is a certified UNESCO Global Geopark.
It is home to many important geological formations, some of which are utterly unique, including numerous types of volcanoes in at least four separate volcanic zones, with hundreds of open fissures and faults. The last eruption on the Reykjanes Peninsula began in March 2021.
Reykjanes Geopark has listed 56 sites as Geosites that are significant to the geological and cultural heritage of the region and some of them are highlighted in the port attractions.
