Our guide, Raggi, was excellent. You need waterproof top and bottom. Be prepared to military crawl a short distance. Very beautiful inside. The walk through the lava field was a great bonus. Looks like nothing you have ever seen.

Hi Mattovey1000 You can not go to Lofthellir Cave by yourself. The cave is private property. The reason for this is that the cave is very delicate. The stalagmites and ice sculptures inside the dark cave are very fragile and... More

I am guessing there is not much difference between the tours other than driving time. Lake Myvatn is where the offroad portion to get to the Cave starts. Aukreyi is quite some distance from Laka Myvatn.
