Explore the incredible forces of the Icelandic nature on this 7-hour day trip from Reykjavík, where you’ll traverse through volcanic areas, venture into one of the island’s largest lava caves and visit a geothermal valley. If hot springs, vistas of volcanism and the ethereal underworld appeal to you, this tour is not to be missed.
Your journey begins as you get picked up by a certified local mountain guide in Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavík. You’ll then board a comfortable minibus and travel to a 2000-year-old lava field known as Tvíbollahraun, south of Þingvellir National Park.
Upon arrival, you will find your first destination of the day, the hidden lava tube Leiðarendi. Your guide will help you gear up with the proper caving equipment and brief you about the safety regulations, after which you may switch on your headlamp and enter through the cave’s narrow opening to explore a volcanic underworld.
Once inside the lava tube, you will be greeted by gorgeous stalagmites and stalactites, smoothed lava walls of various colours and, sometimes, glistening ice sculptures. As you venture through, your guide will inform you of the cave’s fascinating history and geology.
After your subterranean adventure, you’ll board the bus again and continue to the geothermal area of Hengill volcano for a scenic hike into Reykjadalur valley. Once you have traversed through the incredible landscape, you’ll end your excursion by soaking in a natural hot river.
Finally, you'll board the bus again to catch your ride back to Reykjavík around dinner time, leaving the rest of your night free to enjoy the bustling capital city.
