Reykjanes Peninsula is a UNESCO Global Geopark. It is the home to some of Iceland´s most spectacular natural attractions. The peninsula has a diverse volcanic landscape that has been an inspiration to both local people and guests. Reykjanes UNESCO Global Geopark’s mission and objectives are encouraging cooperation among all Geopark partners with the aim of a sustainable development of the area in the field of geotourism, together with the preservation of natural and cultural values. It is important for the area that conservation and economic benefits are not sources of local dispute, but rather that all partners work towards a holistic strategy
for the area as a whole.
