Your drive then continues to Úlfljótsvatn Lake, before crossing the bridge over the powerful river Ölfusá where you'll arrive at the South Iceland town of Selfoss. There you will enjoy a lunch break at the local restaurant Þrastalundur.

From Selfoss, you will continue through stunning landscapes to Eyrarbakki, a small fishing village that was once in consideration to become the capital of Iceland. Rest assured that your local guide will inform you about the fascinating histories of all the sights visited on your adventure.

Then, it is time for the highlight of the tour as you strap on your helmet and headlights to explore the depths of Raufarhólshellir Cave. Descending into this lava tunnel gives you a unique insight into the earth-shattering effects of volcanic activity, but the cave was formed during the Leitahraun eruption in the mountains of Bláfjöll over 5000 years ago.

Inside the cave, prepare to witness an array of different colours and rock formations, as well as breathtaking natural ice sculptures. Once you have explored this vast and fascinating underworld, you will get back into the Super Jeep and head back to Reykjavík City.
