    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.

    I am so happy that I stumbled across this adventure when I was planning our holiday trip to Iceland. Olaf (I'm sure I've spelled it wrong - sorry!) picked us up exactly on time and took us first to the lava tube. We were all absolutely amazed by the fact that we could just hope

    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
