My husband and I were staying at the Travelers Farm at Fljotstunga and, on a whim, decided to join one of the daily tours (4/day, at 10, 12, 3 and 5). We didn't really know what to expect, but as the rate seemed reasonable, we thought we'd give it a shot--and are we ever glad we did!
Incredible tour from an expert guide (we had Rob), who really made the history of the cave and the science behind these lava flows come to life. If you're in the area, it's definitely worth making a trip out for--even if you don't consider yourself a geology enthusiast. Because it's a lava cave, there are no smells, no bats, no minerals, etc., if that generally turns you off caving. It's just an unbelievably cool (and huge) cave located in Iceland's largest lava field, definitely a unique experience. And depending on when you come, you just might get a look at the Ice Elf City... (and if you don't see it, make sure you ask about it.)
Think about staying a night at the Fljotstunga Travelers Farm while you're here too--great people, great (rustic) lodging, and a great dog wandering around the property.
