Þorlákshafnarvegur, Iceland

The Lava Tunnel is also known to Icelanders as Raufarholshellir, a cave created by a volcanic eruption about 5.000 years ago. Take a tour through this extraordinary natural phenomenon under a guidance from experienced guide deep inside one of the biggest lava tube in the world. 

The tour inside the cave is 3-4 hours and we recommend this tour ONLY to people in good physical conditions.  No crawling is needed as the cave is both wide and has the high ceiling.
