The Lava Tunnel

Take a walk through the hottest new tour in Iceland


On this excellent new tour, you will visit the lava tunnel Raufarholshellir, located only 30 minutes from Reykjavik. You will witness the inner workings of a volcanic eruption while walking in the path of lava that flowed thousands of years ago.

The lava tunnel is one of the biggest in Iceland and gest up to 30 metres wide and 10 metres high. The lava tube ceiling has caved in near the entrance, creating beautiful columns of light. The fantastic range of colours of the tunnel wall is caused by different mineral types of the rock. 

This is a tour of 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 something new and step out of your comfort zone. Scenes from the Hollywood movie Noah, with Anthony Hopkins, were shot in this lava cave.

Challenge your senses!  

Included: Bus fare, 1 hour guided cave tour, flashlight and protective helmet
