Great challenge to abseil into a dark hole, in a lava cave. My son and I really enjoyed it, especially because Smári (the guide) shared a lot of knowledge with us. And he took some great pictures, thanks Smári!

We went caving with one of the guides and he was such fun and very knowledgeable. The caving was a bit challenging and a bit of a rough terrain but it was very beautiful and fully worthy.

This was the first time I was trying underground caving and it was a fantastic experience. Our guide was well informed and guided us really well. Overall a must try activity for those who have never tried spelunking
