Lava Cave Tour from Reykjavik

The spectacular lava tube caves in Iceland are a natural phenomenon. They were formed when magma flowed in tunnels during a volcanic eruption. The narrow cave entrances reveal spectacular scenery and interesting forms. This speleological Iceland cave tour takes you into the dark and hidden underworld.

If you want to calm your need for adventure, try this hidden lava cave tour. It is a unique and special experience to explore the fascinating landscape of a lava cave in Iceland. While getting the real caving experience, you are going to hear entertaining stories of the region from a professional guide. Your specialized caving guide picks you up from your accommodation in Reykjavík. After a short drive out of the city, you will reach a large lava field and the cave’s entrance is just a short distance from the parking lot.

To begin with, you will get a helmet and head torch, which is required for the tour. This is going to help you to be safe and to see all the gems hidden in the pitch-black cave. Beneath the earth’s surface, you will walk and climb through spaces where lava once flowed. In short, this is totally mind-blowing! Most noteworthy are the interesting forms of lava stalactites and different rock formations in the cave.

Please note that you have to be reasonably fit to participate in this tour. In fact, in some places, you even need to crawl.
