Description

Explore Víðgemlir volcanic lava cave, Iceland’s largest volcanic Cave on this 11-hour tour. Departing from Reykjavik, make stops at the Settlement Centre in Borgarnes, Icelandic Museum of Agriculture, Deildartunguhver hot springs, and Hraunfossar waterfalls on the way to the Cave.

Your tour begins at 9:30am at your hotel or other accommodation in Reykjavik where your guide will pick you up. From there, drive under the Hvalfjordur Fjord to your first stop, the Settlement Centre in Borgarnes.

Enjoy coastal views with mountains in the backdrop as you drive inland from the coast to the highlands.

Make stops at Deildartunguhver hot springs and Hraunfossar waterfalls before stopping in the small town of Husafell.

Located in the highlands region, Husafell is the staging post to the basecamp at the foot of Langjökul glacier. Take time to stretch your legs and enjoy the included lunch buffet.

Experience the full size of the mighty cave Víðgelmir first hand. Enter the cave using the aid of our all-new walkway. At its end

 we leave the civilised cave worldbehind and venture on.  This part of the cave has seen few visitors from the time it formed about 1100 years ago.

Deep inside the cave are extremely well kept stalagmites and stalactites. Getting there how ever takes time! Through boulder fields and rugged terrain we seek out the rarely seen depths of the cave. These rock formations are very delicate and thus are not found in caves that have had many past visitors as many caves have seen damages done to them. It’s  a pristine environment frozen in time, so tread lightly.
