Full description
On this tour you start underground in Raufarhólshellir or the Lava Tunnel. You will walk into the earth to explore the inner side of this 5000 year-old lava tunnel called Leitarhraun.

Inside you will explore colorful lava formations along with ice-sculptures created by nature. The cave is located just 30 minutes drive from Reykjavík and is easily accessed all year-round. You explore the first part of the tunnels on an approximately one-hour tour with experienced cave guides. Helmets and head-lights are provided on site.

After you surface again, you head on the classic Golden Circle route with stops at Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir geothermal area with its erupting hot springs.
