  • Tour Description

    Discover the Hengill Volcano Area and travel into the lava caves of the Icelandic Underground.

    On this tour, we take you to the famous Hengill Volcano and into the Icelandic underground! The journey begins by exploring one of the many lava caves in the Bláfjöll mountain range, just east of Reykjavík. You will find out how lava caves are formed and discover a wealth of geological formations, including stalagmites and stalactites.

    After enjoying the hidden beauties of the underground, we head out to the Hengill geothermal area where an easy hike in magnificently ethereal surroundings brings us to hot springs and bubbling mud pools awaiting your exploration. The hike continues down through Reykjadalur, the Smokey Valley, where it is possible to enjoy a natural bath surrounded by warm stream.

    Price for children (8-15 years): 13.450 ISK
