Tips: Book an early tour for less people as coach parties don't make 9am. Wear hat and gloves zero degrees in the cave even in summer. Wear good walking shoes. We love this esp as we had the tour to ourselves, the guide was very...More

You might not want to drive an hour off the ring road just for this unless you're really into caves. The caves themselves are more or less like any other cave you've been in. In my opinion the drive out is as fascinating as the...More

We did this ourselves - it was quite an adventure - and perhaps should have been done with a guide. The caves are VERY dark - which seems like a "duh" observation - but you should not go down there without a strong flashlight and...More

Very informative guide, who explained everything well and had a great sense of humour. Safety rules were explained clearly. If going, wear good shoes with grip as the walkway through the cave was a bit slippy due to water dripping. And layer up! It's freezing...More

You can pay for a guided tour which would be a good idea...or you can go yourself. We went ourselves. The trail along the ground is well marked and it takes you past a couple of openings into the tube. We simply walked up the...More

We had to change our plans due to weather conditions. So we tried our luck and went here. Gravel road, take your time and start early. It needs some time to get there. But you still can reach it without a 4wd. We didn‘t book...More

Wear good shoes/boots as slippery in places but very good infrastructure, with good walkways and handrails.

The route was blocked with Snow. There were monster truck tracks through but our ford kuga couldn’t do it. Probably a summer activity or before the snow. Long drive to just turn around and go back

I see another review on here dated December 30th that says that people were able to access the cave. We drove out today (Jan 5, 2018) and the road was marked "Impassable". Respectfully, we did not continue on. Should we have? This is a common...More

Yes, with a guide you get more insight and stories, but it is also a little less on adrenaline. This is a truly amazing experience if you go in yourself, because the first two openings you arrive at, will not provide an exit. So you...More
