Better to drive yourself. Take a morning tour and have the afternoon on the peninsula.

If you take the heli volcano, which is a combination of the helicopter from Reykjavík to þrjunukagigur and back with the volcano, it will take you about 2,5 hours max ☺️ Check it out with Norðurflug, helicopter.is
