Lava Tubes and Volcanoes - Geopark Adventure

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    On this tour your guide takes you to, through and underneath the lava field that surrounds the capital area. 

    Drive through the Moon like 900 year old lava field and into the heart of the volcanic system Trölladyngja or Trolls mountain. Pass by the Black Lake Kleifarvatn and it's unique volcanic rock formations to stop and enjoy one of Iceland's most colorful geothermal sites Krýsuvík. Top the day off with a thrilling lava tube exploration in the 2000 year old cave Leiðarendi (End of Journey Cave).

    We like our caving tours to be an adventure blended with some physical activity and the lava tube Leiðarendi is a perfect example of a lava tube cave that gives a relatively easy access to the inside of the lava with its pristine and natural forms and colors, this is one of few accessible caves around Reykjavik that gives an opportunity to fully experience an all natural lava tube with no wooden pathways and no lights except what you have on your helmet.

    All our lava tube caving & Volcano tours are guided by highly qualified guides and you are equipped with top quality caving helmets & headlamps for the best experience.

    A wonderfully informative and fascinating insight into the local geology. The highlight was the Leidarendi lava tube experience. Our guide was patient (our very small group, 2, contained a septuagenarian), exceedingly knowledgable and took photos for us. Thoroughly recommend.

    Had great time, enjoyed the few hours of daylight we had for the middle of December. Had a great time, went to several stops and learned so much about volcanos! It was just two of us that booked the tour, so very small group!!
