Hop aboard the super jeep and discover the Reykjanes Peninsula. Travel through the volcanic landscapes of the southwest part of Iceland and explore the underground system of lava caves found here. This is a unique private experience discovering hidden natural wonders, stunning scenery and amazingly colourful lava formations. Travel by specially modified super jeep with hotel pickup from Reykjavik included, and see all of Iceland's volcanic gems on this full day trip.

Enjoy complimentary hotel pickup from your centrally located Reykjavik accommodation. The tour then begins with a scenic drive through the south west of Iceland, taking you through stunning views and over the impressive volcanic landscapes of the Reykjanes Peninsula.

Discover this unusual part of the country, with valleys flowing into the lava, dark rocks and gaping craters. This strip of land is marked by its active underground volcanic activity. Its cooled lava soil, that does not allow vegetation to grow, allows you to see bald reliefs and dark rocks typical of volcanic areas, almost like a moonscape. With its many hot springs and sulfur springs, Rekjanes Peninsula is an incredible place of natural beauty. 

Next, we'll head to an impressive lava field, where you can enjoy a short hike to the entrance of one of the best hidden wonders of Iceland : the lava caves. During the tour, we will visit two of them. The narrow cave entrances feel like doors that open to another world. Your guide will you through the extraordinary lava tube caves. The caves here were formed by flowing lava moving beneath the hardened surface of an old lava flow. The tubes can be actively draining lava from a volcano during an eruption. When the lava flow discontinues the spaces sometimes empty, to leave behind a vast system of caves and tunnels. With the light on your helmet and your experienced guide, you'll discover some amazing features usually hidden in the dark and untouched for thousands of years. You can expect to see colourful rock formations, stalactites, stalagmites, ice forms and other geological curiosities. The tour requires some crawling and walking on uneven ground, but it is an easy activity which will leave you with some incredible memories.
