Explore Iceland’s wonder with two unique tours by booking this combo of lava caving and horseback riding. Those eager to enjoy this country’s nature by embarking on thrilling adventures should not overlook this fantastic day!

Your excursion begins when your friendly local guide picks you up; you’ll then be driven out of Reykjavik and into the Blue Mountains, a spectacular range just outside the capital. Hidden beneath the lava landscapes, here is your destination, the cave of Leidarendi.

Formed during 2 volcanic eruptions, this 900-meter long tunnel runs largely in a circle, allowing you to enter one end and exit from another. There are countless points of interest within it, such as a corridor dyed vivid red, stalagmites, stalactites, and spectacular structures of ice throughout most of the year. 

Navigating the cave requires a reasonable level of fitness and mobility, as there are some parts you will have to crawl and clamber, but it is great fun.

After making the most of this gorgeous site, you’ll return to the van and next head to the rural countryside of south Iceland, where you will go horseback riding. Icelandic horses are a unique breed, renowned for being smaller, friendlier, and smarter than their counterparts worldwide and having their own gait called the tolt.

Whether you are an expert rider or total newbie, you’ll find your time on your steed an absolute pleasure; your pace will be gentle, but those with more experience will have the chance to pick up some speed. As you enjoy the company of the animals and marvel over the beautiful surrounding nature, your guide will tell you more about the horses as well as some local stories.

After this adventure is complete and you’ve bid farewell to your mount, you’ll be driven back to Reykjavik, no doubt thrilled by how much diverse fun you have fit into the day.

Don’t miss this opportunity to explore a lava cave and ride an Icelandic horse on your holiday! Check availability by choosing a date.
