Go off the beaten path and far from the typical places visited by most tours on this geopark adventure from Reykjavik. Traveling in a small group of no more than six people in an all-terrain SUV means that you can go places inaccessible to most cars and buses. Drive through lunar lava fields, by a black lake, and to one of Iceland's most colorful geothermal sites, Krysuvik. Finish your day with a thrilling lava tube exploration in Leidarendi Cave.
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.

Amazing Trip

This trip surpassed our expectations. Our guide Eric was so informative, witty, patient and helpful. The small group experience was essential so that everyone was comfortable and was encouraged to go at their own pace. We highly recommend this adventure.

Great tour!

We were in a Land Rover with just 5 people in total. Kommi was a great guide. Explained everything from history, legend (the trolls and the elves) to scenery, to volcanoes. The lava tube was the highlight for us but the Geopark is also amazing...More
