Follow the path of the lava flow, about 200 meters into the cave and 35 meters below the surface to see amazing colors and lava formations. The 8000 years old cave is located in Snaefellsjokull National Park, about 10 minute drive from Hellnar.

The cave tour was pretty neat. They are relatively short - about 30 to 45 minutes but interesting. You only have your flashlights to see so once those are off, its crazy how pitch black it is. The colors on the walls are amazing and...More

My friends and I arrived an hour after the official close time (15:00) for October, but the guide at the front desk, "Gummy", decided to give us the tour anyway! The tour lasts about 45 minutes and goes over the history of the cave and...More
This is a short (45 mins) cave tour with very interesting information on how the lava tubes form. Our guide was funny and entertaining, which kept the visit enjoyable. You will need some sturdy hiking shoes. It wasn’t as cold as everyone says, but dress...More
