Navigate through the wonderous lava tunnel Raufarholshellir, one of the longest and best-
known lava tubes in Iceland. Just a short 30-minute drive from Reykjavik, this natural wonder is
easily accessible all year round.
5.200 years ago, a massive volcanic eruption forced tons of molten lava through the earth,
forming a 1.300-metre long lava tube. This tube is known as Raufarholshellir and is the longest
lava tunnel in Iceland. Exploring this natural phenomenon is a unique experience and a great
opportunity to witness the inner workings of a volcanic eruption, as one gets to follow the path
of the lava that flowed all those centuries ago.
In the forefront of the cave, a collapse in the cave-ceiling has formed three natural skylights that send rays of sunlight shooting through the cave and onto the rock bed below. As winter sets in and frost and snow grip the landscape, huge ice sculptures from inside the cave making the visit a truly wondrous and unique experience.
See Iceland above and underground. Begin the day with witnessing the inner workings of a volcanic eruption while we walk in the path of a lava that flowed thousands of years ago. The lava tunnel is one of the biggest in Iceland and gets up to 30 meters wide and 10 meters high. The lava tube ceiling has caved in near the entrance, which creates beautiful columns of light. The fantastic range of colors of the tunnel wall is caused by the different mineral types of the rock.
This is a tour for the senses. Experience a new world, hear the talk of the cave and sense the forces of nature like you have never done before. Learn new things and step out of your comfort zone. Scenes from the Hollywood movie Noah, with Anthony Hopkins, were shot in this lava cave.
The next tour takes you to three of Iceland’s most stunning sights; Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area, and Þingvellir National Park.
The Geysir geothermal area boasts spouting springs, including Strokkur, the most active geyser in Iceland. All geysers in the world get their name from the now mostly dormant Geysir hot spring, from which the area also gets its name. At Gullfoss you are given the opportunity to stand next to the amazing waterfall, watching enormous quantities of water tumble violently into a deep, meandering gorge.
