The Lava Tunnel Tour | Icelandair
Pingdom Check

Step out of your comfort zone and experience a new world inside one of the biggest lava tunnels in Iceland, measuring 30 metres wide and 10 metres high.

This 1-hour guided Lava Tunnel tour is truly one for the senses. Located only 30 minutes from Reykjavík, you’ll witness the inner workings of a volcanic eruption inside the lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir. By walking in the path of lava that flowed thousands of years ago, you’ll see the tunnel wall’s fantastic range of colors created by the rock’s variety of minerals. With the lava tube’s entrance ceiling having caved in, creating beautiful columns of light, you can see why scenes from the Anthony Hopkins-starring film ‘Noah’ were shot here. Both a flashlight and protective helmet are provided for your safety.
