Our tour starts with the velvet darkness of the Raufarhólshellir lava tube. Explore and discover the marvels that the volcano created more than 5200 years ago. Raufarhólshellir lava tube, 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 underground lava tube. This uniquely daring adventure will exhibit the Icelandic lava fields from two very different angles, giving you a deep understanding of how Iceland was created and how the primeval forces of nature continue to shape it every day!

After the caving tour, you are driven to downtown Reykjavík before immersing yourselves into the horse riding tour.

You will experience the Icelandic horse, surrounded by amazing nature right outside Reykjavík’s city center. Our friendly horses and specially trained guides will take you on a ride on excellent riding paths where you can experience the unique Icelandic horse while enjoying beautiful scenery full of lava fields and green hillsides.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to explore the lava landscape, both above and below. Check availability by choosing a date.
