Horse riding & Caving

Explore a 2200-year-old lava cave in Bláfjöll mountains and go horse riding on the unique Icelandic horse through the lava fields of Hafnafjörður on this fun tour.

This horse riding adventure starts at Íshestar Riding Center where we saddle up on the stunning Icelandic horses. We go for a ride into the lava surrounding Helgafell volcano and continue on through the lava fields and across beautiful hillsides to the old Kaldársel sheep corral.

As we ride through this majestic scenery you will see different formations in the rough lava and the Bláfjöll Mountains towering above on the horizon. The horses follow safe paths through the beautiful countryside to give you a fun and peaceful horseback experience in Iceland. It is a true stress reliever.

After the horse riding tour, we immerse into the velvet darkness of the Leiðarendi lava cave. Explore and discover the marvels that the volcano created more than 2000 years ago. Leiðarendi cave, situated in one of the most active volcanic areas in the world, is a perfect example of an Icelandic lava tube.

We will climb, crawl and walk our way through the travel beneath the surface. This uniquely daring adventure will exhibit the Icelandic lava fields from two very different perspectives, giving you a good hint of how Iceland was created and how the primeval forces of nature continue to shape it every day!
