Really cool tour with lots of personal touches and a great guide. We stopped off on our last day and it was the perfect ending to the trip and something very different from everything we'd seen before. Highly recommended!

Stumbled upon this gem on Route 37 from Geysir back to Selfoss. Entertaining guided tour of the last inhabited cave in Iceland and coffee with homemade cakes after. 10/10
