Drive past the Presidential residence of Bessastaðir and to the town of Hafnarfjörður.Take a coastal road to Lake Kleifarvatn, set in fascinating, stark, moon-like surroundings.  This was the site of a famous Icelandic suspense novel by Arnaldur Indriðason. Near the lake’s southern end lies Krísuvík with powerful jets of sulphurous steam escaping from deep below the earth’s crust.  Here you can view numerous small hot springs, mud pots, boiling pools and other types of geothermal activity. Continue under low mountains along the shore, where with craggy cliffs rise steeply from the sea.
