The Lava Tunnel

Step into the underworld


Nobody really knows how many caves there are in Iceland, since it is certain that many of them have not been found yet. There are caves in all shapes and forms, and it is very easy to find spacious, small, dark, bright or long narrow caves all over the country. Most of them have rocks in colors that you won’t believe unless you see it with your own eyes. These tours are suitable for everyone, because they are adapted per request. Let our expert guides take you through these caves of past volcanic eruptions to explore the black tunnels formed.


The Lava Tunnel

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.
