Lava Caving

Lava tube caving refers to the exploration of a tube-like cave hidden right under our feet in the vast fields of ancient lava that covers much of Iceland. Untouched for thousands of years, these hidden gems offer an experience that is at once exhilarating and awe-inspiring as you witness up-close some of the most weird and wonderful rock formations found on Earth.

You will be amazed by the display of colours, shapes and textures. Who would have thought that some of the most colourful landscape on Earth is underground?

Join a small group caving tour with max 6 guests per guide. An adventure exploration guided by qualified guides and equipped with our high quality caving headlamps for the best experience. Expect mind blowing volcanoes and lava fields during the 30 min. drive to the cave and beautiful colours and stalagmites with low ceilings, crouching and even some crawling in the 2000 year old lava tube cave.
