This trip is a really good introduction to Icelandic lava caves. On this short all-year-round caving adventure, we explore a great lava caves on the outskirts of Reykjavík. As we make our way into the cave, we discover the beauty of stalagmites and stalactites, learn more about the formation of lava caves and how they have played a part in many different Icelandic myths throughout the centuries. During late winter, guests can sometimes see beautiful ice formations inside the cave. Just getting into the cave when snow has built up can be a small adventure itself.
