Join this brilliant all-year-round adventure caving and exploring the spectacular subterranean lava formations of a lava tube cave in Iceland. as well as the three major attractions of the world-famous Golden Circle sightseeing routes. 

First, you'll visit the beautiful Þingvellir National Park. Þingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, and Iceland's national parliament, Althingi, was founded there in 930 AD. The parliament is now situated in Reykjavík. Of particular interest at Þingvellir is the impressive Almannagjá canyon, marking the eastern boundary of the North American plate.

Next, you'll travel to the nearby Geysir geothermal area; the main attractions here are, undoubtedly, the hot springs Geysir and Strokkur. The former doesn't erupt any longer but the latter is in full force, spouting 15 - 20 meters high up in the sky every 5 - 10 minutes, sometimes as high as 40 meters. There are also steaming fumaroles, bubbling hot pools, a nearby cafe and gorgeous natural surroundings.

The majestic Gullfoss waterfall is Iceland's most famous waterfall and the final stop on the Golden Circle sightseeing route. Located on the popular rafting river, Hvítá, this waterfall forcefully plummets 32 meters down into the river gorge. You'll get to be near enough to the edge to feel the spray of the waterfall on your face... and snap some amazing photos!

Next up is the second chapter of this fantastic adventure tour. This caving experience provides interesting history, stunning natural beauty and fascinating geological wonders. Besides, how often do you get to explore a country's dark and fascinating underworld?

Necessary equipment is provided, such as helmets and lights, but you should ensure that you bring a pair of good hiking boots because much of the cave requires some climbing and clambering about. Once inside, you will immediately have your breath taken away by the fascinating rock formations and overwhelming darkness. 

Make the most of this sightseeing and lava tubing adventure and see for yourself some of Iceland's greatest highlights. Check availability by choosing a date.
