Overview

Explore the magnificent lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir, one of the longest and most famous lava tubes in Iceland. See the inner workings of a volcanic eruption while walking the path of a lava that flowed thousands of years ago.

Witness the inner workings of a volcanic eruption as you walk in the path of a lava that flowed thousands of years ago. The lava tunnel is one of the biggest in Iceland and gets up to 30 metres wide and 10 metres high. The lava tube ceiling has caved in near the entrance, which creates beautiful columns of light. The fantastic range of colours of the tunnel wall is caused by the different mineral types of the rock.

Walk 350 metres into the lava tunnel and experience the temperature in the cave at around 4 degrees, although it can be warmer outside.

The lava tunnel promises an even more spectacular experience during the winters as unique ice sculptures are formed.
