The Lava Tunnel
On this excellent brand new tour, we visit the lava tunnel Raufarholshellir located only 30 minutes from Reykjavik. We will witness the inner workings of a volcanic eruption while we 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 meters wide and 10 meters high. The lava tube ceiling has caved in near the entrance, which creates beautiful columns of light. The fantastic range of colors of the tunnel wall is caused by the different mineral types of the rock. This is a tour for the senses.
Experience a new world, hear the talk of the cave and since the forces of nature as you have never done before. Learn new things and step out of your comfort zone. Scenes from the Hollywood movie Noah, with Anthony Hopkins, were shot in this lava cave. Challenge your senses!
