This tour allows you to explore the tunnel in an easy and enjoyable manner. The tunnel is in many places covered in large rocks and difficult to pass. A footbridge and several paths have been built over the roughest terrain making the standard tour accessible by most people. Impressive lighting in this part of the tunnel highlights the changing colors and clearly shows the powerful volcanic activity that formed the tunnel. You need to bring: Warm clothes and sturdy shoes are recommended and bear in mind that there is usually some water dripping from the ceiling so wearing a water-resistant or waterproof jacket/clothes is recommended. Provided on location: Helmets and lights provided.
Explore the magnificent lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir, one of the longest and best-known lava tubes in Iceland. It is located just 30 minutes from Reykjavík and is easily accessed year round. A journey into Raufarhólshellir is a unique experience and a great opportunity to witness the inner workings of a volcanic eruption as one walks in the path of lava that flowed during the Leitahraun eruption, which occurred east of the Bláfjöll mountains about 5200 years ago. Every winter spectacular ice sculptures are formed inside the entrance of the cave making the experience of visiting the lava tunnel even more breathtaking.
