Leiðarendi Lava Tube Cave | From Reykjavik

Based on 6 traveller reviews

Visit Iceland's most popular cave Leiðarendi, a 900 meter circular lava tube located in the Blue Mountains. This 2000 year old lava tube offers some unique rock formations such as the splash stalactites and is very colorful once inside. This is a true caving adventure where we go deep inside the cave, you need to crawl a bit in a few places so be prepared!

This is a fun 2-3 hour tour where you get to explore the underworld of Iceland and see what a volcano eruption can create. We will provide you with a torch/head light and a safety helmet.

Please dress properly, it is always colder inside the cave. We recommend good hiking shoes and gloves.

We only operate in small groups of maximum 8 people to make the best out of your experience.

Join us for a very special adventure in Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.

Rut gave us a great lava tube tour. It was just us unto a couple of other groups showed up near the end. Definitely worth the trip, and worth the cost. I know this may sound strange, but I found the sheep remains near the end of the tube as fascinating as the rest of the tour, LOL! I want to go back and do the tour with the elevator that descends into the volcano cauldron.

The tour was wonderful! We went early in the morning so the group was small and it wasn't crowded in the caves at all. I think we were the only ones in there and saw another group coming just as we were leaving. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful along the way. She definitely made the experience even better! The caves themselves were amazing and there was a bit of crawling but not bad at all. I would recommend booking a tour though this company for sure.

Had so much fun on this tour, with a small group this tour became very interesting and personal and we got to know the other people on the tour. The lava formations are interesting and the cave keeps surprising you, be prepare to crawl a bit! Loved the surroundings as well, beautiful lava landscapes. The guide was very friendly and enthusiastic.

Take this tour if you are in Iceland. We had a great time with a small group of only 6 people. The guide was very friendly and informative and we were the first group to arrive in the morning so we had the cave for ourselves and got to experience the darkness!

This tour just wasn't active but very interesting as well! I'd definitely recommend. Great value for money.

I loved the tour! The experience felt really local. Beautiful area. It was really not one of those touristy caves. The guide was great and answered all of our questions! Highly recommended.
