This is a combo tour so it’s only available with pick-up.

Pick up: 09:00  from your Reykjavík accommodation. Please note, that the pick up can take up to 30 min.

After a short 15-minute drive from Reykjavík, we will find our 650 cc CanAm Outlander Max Quad bikes waiting outside our base on the outskirts of the city. There we give you a short safety briefing and show you how the bikes work and then head out on a one hour ATV bike tour to the top of the Hafrafjall mountain. After enjoying the spectacular view over the Reykjavik capital area and mountain Esja, we will return back to the base. Driving these powerful machines is a great way to explore the hills and mountains on the outskirts of the city. After the ATV trip, we will return to the city center where you can have a light lunch and to prepare for the second adventure of the day. After lunch-break, we will take a short drive out to the Bláfjöll (Blue Mountains) area where we will go on our caving adventure. Exploring this magnificent lava cave and discovering the marvels that the volcano created more than 2000 years ago is a trip that everyone will enjoy. The Leiðarendi cave is a perfect example of an Icelandic lava tube and is situated in one of the most active volcanic areas in the world. We will climb, crawl and walk on our travel beneath the surface, learning about the geology of Iceland from your specially trained cave guide.

Remember to bring: Warm outdoor clothing, waterproof jacket and pants, headwear and gloves. Good hiking shoes are recommended (note: hiking shoes, waterproof jacket and pants can be rented online beforehand, only available for the caving part).

What if I don’t own all of these clothing necessaries?
Don’t worry, you can always rent the necessary clothing in the booking process.

 

 

What equipment do you provide for the lave tube caving trip?

We provide you with a headlight and a helmet.

For how long are you inside the lava tube cave?

You are in the cave for about 1-1,5 hours.

What should I wear on a lava caving tour in Iceland?

Like always in Iceland, it’s best to dress in layers. A warm layers closest to you preferably wool/thermal underwear, pants sweater and on top waterproof outdoor clothing. We also recommend that you wear good hiking boots and gloves. Jeans have proven to be a bad choice.
