Evening Lava Tunnel Tour
Season: September 15th - April 15th (Thursday through Monday). Duration: 1 hour
Navigate through the wonderous lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir, one of the longest and best-known lava tubes in Iceland. Just a short 30 minute drive from Reykjavík, this natural wonder is easily accessible all year round. A footbridge and several paths have been built over the roughest terrain making the Standard Tour accessible for most people. An award winning lighting highlights the changing colors manifesting the powerful volcanic activity that formed the tunnel. The Lava Tunnel is located at one of the best Northern lights sightseeing sport around Reykjavik and is therefore an ideal combination with your evening program outside Reykjavik. Seeing the Northern lights is never a guarantee but our caving adventure is guaranteed fun!
