Lava Cave Exploration

Explore the Geological Wonders of a Lava Cave in Iceland

On this half-day, year-round caving adventure, we explore a fascinating 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 understand 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.


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