    What to Expect
    On this tour your guide takes you to, through and underneath the lava field that surrounds the capital area. 

    Drive through the Moon like 900 year old lava field and into the heart of the volcanic system Trölladyngja or Trolls mountain. Pass by the Black Lake Kleifarvatn and it's unique volcanic rock formations to stop and enjoy one of Iceland's most colorful geothermal sites Krýsuvík. Top the day off with a thrilling lava tube exploration in the 2000 year old cave Leiðarendi (End of Journey Cave).

    We like our caving tours to be an adventure blended with some physical activity and the lava tube Leiðarendi is a perfect example of a lava tube cave that gives a relatively easy access to the inside of the lava with its pristine and natural forms and colors, this is one of few accessible caves around Reykjavik that gives an opportunity to fully experience an all natural lava tube with no wooden pathways and no lights except what you have on your helmet.

    All our lava tube caving & Volcano tours are guided by highly qualified guides and you are equipped with top quality caving helmets & headlamps for the best experience.

    Our tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the area, and chose a caving route appropriate to our group's ability. The cave was amazing, and the views (like everything in Iceland!) were incredible. Highly recommend this tour!

    This was to be my final trip in Iceland, and I am so fortunate to have picked this trip. It started off a cold, still and bright morning, and as the sun started to set, our guide, Louis, stopped and took some pictures of us with Mt. Esja in the background and we made our way

    We did the Lava Tube tour and it was awesome! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the geology and history of the area, and even told us a saga regarding the caves. We got lucky and were the only ones booked on the tour and, from pickup to drop off at our hotel, it was

    A wonderfully informative and fascinating insight into the local geology. The highlight was the Leidarendi lava tube experience. Our guide was patient (our very small group, 2, contained a septuagenarian), exceedingly knowledgable and took photos for us. Thoroughly recommend.

    Our guide, Kommi was amazing - very knowledgable about the caves and volcanoes but also about Iceland in general. He was brilliant with my children, telling them stories and he even made a snowman for them. Couldn't fault the trip, which was really interesting and very worth
