As we make our way into the cave we discover the beauty of stalagmites and stalactites and learn more about the formation of lava caves and how they play a part in many different Icelandic myths.

During late winter guests can sometimes see beautiful ice formations inside the cave and just getting into the cave when snow has built up can be a small adventure itself.

The trip is suitable for most people, but in order to finish a round trip in the cave people have to be ready to crawl and bend down for a short distance. This trip is a really good introduction to Icelandic lava caves and since we will be back in town at 13:00 (1pm) you have the option to add some extra activities such as horseback riding, whale watching and more.
