The Office of International Education organizes a program called “Introduction to Iceland”, which aim is to introduce Icelandic society, culture, history and nature to international students and visiting teachers. In next excursion we will head to the Reykjanes peninsula, where the mid Atlantic ridge rises from the ocean, to give you a better view of the area most foreigners describe as "moon landscape" after arriving in Iceland from the international airport in Keflavík.

The trip goes Reykjavík, Bessastaðir, Vatnsleysuströnd, Keflavík, Reykjanesviti, Blue lagoon. The stop in the Blue Lagoon will be about 2-3 hours.
