Full description
Explore the fascinating world beneath the lava fields on this 3-hour caving tour. Located near Reykjavik, it’s a perfect example of an Icelandic lava tube, providing a truly unique experience as you explore the dark and mysterious underworld.

During your adventure you will see curious rock formations left behind by the last volcanic eruption. In winter the cave is often filled with glistening icicles of all shapes and sizes, a sight not soon forgotten. After you have been equipped with all necessary caving gear, you will crawl beneath the surface of the earth to explore the fairytale passages and crevasses of the cave.

With guaranteed departures from Reykjavik every day of the year, put on a pair of good shoes and gloves, and bring a sense of adventure for this unorthodox trip. It helps if you are not afraid of the dark!
