    Reykjavík Lava Caving

    On this short all-year-round caving adventure, we explore a great lava cave on the outskirts of Reykjavík. As we make our way into the cave, we discover the beauty of stalagmites and stalactites, learn more about the formation of lava caves and how they have played a part in many different Icelandic myths throughout the centuries. During late winter, guests can sometimes see beautiful ice formations inside the cave. Just getting into the cave when snow has built up can be a small adventure itself.

    The trip is suitable for most people but in order to finish a round trip in the cave, people have to be ready to crawl and bend down for a short distance. This trip is a really good introduction to Icelandic lava caves and still gives you plenty of time to explore and go on other adventures in the afternoon.

    Price children: 8 - 15 years: 6.450 ISK.
